“…like with any good outsider, the more you listen to the songs, the more natural they become, and soon those quirks become hooks”
A write-up for Threaten Me With Your Love, to go with this one from withguitars.
Here’s a live session / interview I did for Pete Jones the other day on Radio Reverb (at 33min 58 onwards)…
There’s two unrecorded new tracks – one so new that I cocked up the intro twice, the suspense is incredible – and two from the forthcoming EP:
Not Too Far / Threaten Me with Your Love / Looking For A Genius / Moon Madness
There’s plenty of other tunes and chat, some of which took a weirdly confessional left-turn; a solid listen all round. See if you can tell how wretched my hayfever was; I reckon it doesn’t show at all, but what do you think?
Here are two free downloads, moved across to Bandcamp from Soundcloud:
a BBC Introducing: South session with my previous live band…
…and a studio track recorded at the same time as Lilith and In The Evil Empire
Please, feel free to pig out on all of the above.
Dazed & Awake presents –
a rock band with striking melodies, powerful harmonies, a sea of guitars and synthesised leads.
singer/writer/horror freak Matt Finucane takes his influences from Lou Reed, Mark E Smith and horrible electronic noise (despite primarily performing on acoustic guitar)
Broken Ears fuse americana and blues influences with a sense of urgency and energy derived from their punk rock roots to create an eclectic mess of sounds.…
Free entry from 8pm

Join us for our last Showcase night before the summer featuring…
The Decadent Dayze – everyone’s favourite, Syd Barrett in a 90’s garage rock band, what’s not to like? With Stephi Sky on drums….
Matt Finucane – Bowie spiked space oddity and part-time goth, with Mik Hanscomb on the drums. Don’t try to pretend!
Binky – Sagres-soacked Sway castaway Baz is joined by the enigmatic rainbow-killer Pete Wiseman for their first show together. Who knows what to expect?
First band about 8.30
…In a slight departure from the standard gig template, I’m neither solo acoustic nor playing with a full band this time, but have Mik joining me on drums. This means improvisation, cheap FX pedals and hideous noise. Fake-psych! (Psych-faux?)
