A 3-part video of the Waterghosts live performance at St Mary’s Church (Brighton Fringe Festival) can now be watched on Youtube.
It’s an astonishing document. Have a look, draw yr own conclusions…
This is the lyrics video to forthcoming single In The Evil Empire, due to be released on The Animal Farm in 2014.
A few pics from Saturday’s gig At The Coach House:
…As you can see, it’s an interesting place, the kind worth playing Just Because (that thing in the 3rd photo’s a beyond-vintage speaker, not a municipal radiator, btw). Gig went well and got recorded – might stick it on Soundcloud, whole or in part, in the near future.
old news and new news…
New: looks like I’ve finally got a band together, at least the strong framework of one. All we lack – perhaps – is a keyboard or synth (or even laptop) player. It’s sounding great so far… Exciting stuff.
Also, been getting some more airplay on Brighton’s Burst Radio – check em out.
Old: my former band Empty Vessels now has a Youtube channel here. There’s live footage in 3 parts, and also loads of free audio on Bandcamp. While I don’t want to make the mistake of raking around in the past too much, it captures the chaos and focused energy of those days – just as well I’ve got a new band, really.
This Mucky Age is now on sale, and is available all over the internet (Amazon, Spotify etc), or from Bandcamp.
The Bandcamp version features lyrics, 4 different versions of the cover art, and B-sides to the deleted singles (June 2021).
*June 2021: as with previous single, this no longer exists as a separate recording but can be heard on the album…
It’s not a mess of cardboard, tin foil and spray-on lube, it’s an installation.
Been finishing up the artwork for the album. It looks like the above-mentioned gaudy nightmare, or maybe the sickest box of chocolates you ever saw. For a glossy effect – a dewy sheen, even – I sprayed the assembled layers with what I thought was tanning lotion. I’m told it’s actually an “instant glisten” oil, ie. something people spray on themselves to look all sleek.
Here are some samples of the work in progress:
