Feb gig & a new song on the radio

Next gig’s with Skinny Milk & Leisure Tank on Wed 26 Feb at the Prince Albert here in Brighton, and will be hellish noisy.  Lots more to follow, too (in fact, got stuff lined up till July already)…
A live studio recording of a new song can be heard on the Garden of Earthly Delights show, 1BTN FM.  The song’s called A Friend From Far Away, and is about halfway in (track 12).  It’s an eclectic show, with something for all but the most jaded, sordid and glutted.  Have a dabble:
 

in the studio, Jan ’20

noises (Church Road Studio)

burnt orange (Church Road Studio)

lights! (Audiobeach Studio)

…more on these developments soon

gig & EP review, Dec ’19

 

MF, Barney, Stephen, 11 Dec

On the whole, I’ve really enjoyed putting on some DIY gigs this year – it’s been stressful at times (for purely organisational reasons – all the other bands have been lovely)… but very much worth it.  This last one went very well, and here’s a review from Plugged in Brighton to testify:

“…high-grade alt-rock. Matt’s guitar playing was muscular and twisted whilst the rhythm section kept pace and added to a heavy sound that was tough without being obvious.”

So thanks to them – and to Idle Bones and Adam & Elvis for being fucking superb.

On the subject of reviews, here’s one of the EP from Whisperin and Hollerin:

“…And so it is that over the course of 4 songs and 20 minutes, Matt Finucane demonstrates that he’s a singular artistic voice in a sea of sameness, and if 2019 has seen him establish himself, 2020 looks like being the year he takes it to the next level.”

Well, hope so.  This year’s not over yet, of course – couple more gigs to come – and in January we’re back in the studio.  So who knows?  If nothing else, be interesting to see what happens next.

Resonance FM session & gig video, 16 Nov

Here’s the live session & interview we did for Dexter Bentley’s HelloGoodbye Show on Resonance FM – it’s very close to the start of the show, and is four uninterrupted songs (including a brand new number) followed by some chat:

That was our afternoon.  Later on, we went to Biddle Bros in E5 for a very loud gig:

Honest Song / Evil Relief / Perilous Seat / A Friend From Far Away / Caught Making Signals / Raw Material

…It’s a lot – dive in.
