Ark

Ta da! Here's the aforementioned video for the new single 'Ark' by The Fierce & The Dead, who I hit the bass for. Video by the excellent Ash Jones from The Chaos Engineers. Put it in your eyes and get involved.

New TFATD Video!

If you didn't know, I play bass in a band called The Fierce And The Dead, and we have a new record coming out in November called Spooky Action. November 4th to be precise. And to start things off we made a video for the first single. It's called Ark and it's being premiered by Artrocker magazine over on their website.
The single is out on Oct 21st and you can pre-order it here. It comes with a couple of extra goodies, namely an excellent remix by Emmett Elvin (he of Chrome Hoof/Guapo/Knifeworld fame) and an 'out there' track featuring the voice of James Orman from Silvery. So get over to Artrocker, have a watch, and if you dig it then get involved. You can also pre-order the new album itself here.
Artrocker Video Exclusive!
Here's what the cover of the album is looking like. We're pretty darn happy with it all.

Wow. Didn't know this existed. I guess this just shows how close to crossing over into the mainstream Husker Dü were! Enjoy.

Dangerous Minds | WTF? Robert Palmer covers Hüsker Dü then Sonic Youth covers Robert Palmer:

Trojan Horse: Disciplining The Reserve Army

Trojan Horse are good. That's all you need to know. Here they are playing at a recent sortie South from their Northern stronghold.

This week i've been mostly listening to…22/6/2013

I'm back! Just had a little time off to bring my brand new baby son into the big bad world. But i'm here now so everybody calm down yeh. This selection is brought to you by watching old skateboard videos, memories of a trip to NYC in the early noughties, Bobby Conn's first visit to the UK in a long time this weekend (tickets still on sale here) and some other random brain whims. Enjoy them like you mean it.

A man shouting at a guitar

So, t'other day The Fierce And The Dead reconvened in our rehearsal room for an album overdub session. It quite quickly devolved into making funny noises. Which is fine with me!
