gig / studio session / new single: pix

So the gig went well…

…and three days later, we went into the studio to record as a band – which also went very well (more on that later)…

…but meanwhile, there’s a new single coming out next month:

 

Due 8 March, accompanied by a video (one of my no-budget, lo-fi specials) – link to follow.

gather round, for I must cry my wares

…Yes.

I fucking hate January (and February, but that’s another story).  Only remedy’s work – been rehearsing with the band for an upcoming gig and some recording next month, and finalising my next release… due out early May, probably.

Meanwhile, the Disquiet EP’s bagged some more good ink: a very nice one in French from Music In Belgium, and two from Whisperin’ and Hollerin’ (extract above) and Sonic Shocks.

More news on the gig and other doings – it occurs to me there’s not a lot of stuff online with the band, which we’ll have to do something about – as and when, as ever.

Overdrive interview &c &c…

Krautrock!!! The Overdrive interview

Hope & Ruin gig went well – although enough’s happened since that it now feels like a vague, fond childhood memory – and the band gets ever more awesome: from early next year we’re doing more gigs, with new material to play.

I’ve got another meaty interview in Irish rock zine Overdrive – read here.  Also, German indie radio’s NBT put Disquiet at 55 on their 410-album Best Of 2018, which as plaudits go is pretty heady: some of the names I beat are big and legendary (of course it’s not a contest… is it?… but a gong’s always welcome).

Anyway, big plans for 2019, including a new solo album and our first recordings as a group – starting February, probably.  Here we are in that happy era of five weeks ago:

l-r: MF, Barney Guy, Stephen Bad Mother-Folker
