“Let him loose.”
I’m sitting in a cold room and a burlap sack has been removed from my face. Behind two floodlights, two lanky fellas are striking a menacing pose, cracking their knuckles. The silence is deadly and then they put on hunting caps. Read the rest of this page »
It’s weird how life works. The one band that means so much to the book that your life becomes sometimes waxes and wanes in your attention, but when it’s back, it hits hard and fast.
In the case of Counting Crows, my interest waned once but when they came back, they never left. Heck, even revisiting the albums where I decided to let go, it became clearer that it was a question of not being the right age. Read the rest of this page »
Hey, you! Don’t listen to that, listen to this… wait, no, that’s Madness‘ ‘One step beyond’.
What we have here is a failure to communicate.
Now, what this rambling post is actually aiming for is to invite you to a special gig we have curated with the people of Xray Horse. On May 11th, at The Harley, for just 4 quid, you can see this rather dashing bands:
Canyon Family – Dreamy Americana, in the tradition of Mazzy Star, Ida and Red House Painters. Utterly wonderful.
The Payroll Union – Proof positive that history can be both informative and entertaining, their bold show is always a sight for sore eyes. We’ve seen them before.
Mudcats Blues Trio – Simply Biblical in both strength and stage presence. Proper Blues. We reviewed them, too.
I think I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy this pretty nifty band and it’s been a while (2 months) since I’ve written about them. Since the cheque has cleared, I thought about re-posting this video.
Just kidding about the cheque. We won’t sell out. Not because of principles, but because nobody wanted to bribe us.
But back to Mazes. They are currently touring the continent with Veronica Falls (add Fear of Men and you’ve got a match made in Heaven) and this track, ‘Skulking’, gets much love from us (okay, me) at Sloucher HQ.
Follow the band on Twitter (they are nice fellas), give them a like on Friendface, get a lovely vinyl and keep an eye out for a more in detail feature about them soon. How good is that solo? Supergreen good, that’s how good.
