SONNY VINCENT AND SPITE-ALL STAR PUNK ALBUM-OUT NOW

 

THE BRAND NEW ALL STAR PUNK ALBUMN FROM SONNY VINCENT AND SPITE!!! OUT NOW!

 

Only a few copies of limited orange vinyl left…

 

Sonny Vincent And Spite – SPITEFUL

Line Up: Sonny Vincent – Testors – Vocals and Guitar

Rat Scabies – The Damned – Drums

Glen Matlock – Sex Pistols – Bass

Steve Mackay – Stooges – Sax

 

Three years in the making, four RocknRoll bastards get together to fuck shit up.

Totally on fire, call the motherfucking fire department now, these bastards have a vengeance!

The kick ass songs are not playable in police stations, the freedom bell frenzy is banging

way too loud. Strap yourself in for a wild ride that takes you from a dark alleyway to a

far away planet of Love and mercurial radiance.

 

Warning: some tracks are not recommended for children or folks with heart conditions.

It’s ugly, it’s beautiful, it hates, it loves, and it’s "Spiteful”.

 

“I like to go wild, and have a good time, but I can also be very focused and serious.

I am not the type to go around giving fake hippie hugs to people. If I say something,

I mean it. I appreciate ‘soul’. I know this album will deliver some to you.”

Sonny

 

 

SONNY VINCENT&SPITE-SPITEFUL is out now on CD, LP and limited colored LP.

NEW BRUCE FOXTON ALBUM

 Bruce Foxton & Russell Hastings line up new album Smash The Clock for October 2015 release

 

Two years on from the 2012 release of the critically acclaimed ‘Back In The Room’, Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings are returning to the studio to record a new album titled ‘Smash The Clock’. The news was announced on crowdfunding site PledgeMusic, with Bruce saying “Its [Back In The Room’s] success was made possible by Pledge Music and, in turn, by you the public getting involved, for which we can’t thank you enough. The initial demos are sounding great and Russ & I can’t wait to start recording in early January. As on the last album we will have a few guest appearances, which we’re really excited about.”

                                                                                                                            

Original The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and guitarist & vocalist Russell Hastings tour as From The Jam. Bruce’s power and force still drives the classics with the same fullness and intensity as they have for the last three decades.

 

Russell Hastings is the only frontman other than Weller to have worked with both Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler (former The Jam drummer). His passion and understanding of The Jam has entitled him to be credited by fans and critics alike as the perfect candidate to respectfully and admirably slip into the shoes of former The Jam frontman Paul Weller, with whom he also worked alongside in 2011.

 

From The Jam are currently touring the 1979 The Jam album Setting Sons.

DANKO JONES NEW ALBUM AND VIDEO!

 

DANKO JONES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM FOR FEBRUARY 2015

NEW SONG & VIDEO UNVEILED RIGHT NOW

Eighteen years. Twelve albums. Two Gold Records. Thirty-plus transatlantic treks. Fifteen Top 40 singles. Arena tours across 11 countries with Guns N Roses. A video trilogy starring Elijah Wood and Ralph Macchio. A feature- length documentary. An oral-history biography. Personal invites from Lemmy to join Motörhead on the road (and on water, for the 2014 Motörboat cruise). For most bands, that would amount to a hell of a career. For Toronto trio Danko Jones, it’s called “warming up.”

Now the time has come to announce the next chapter in Danko Jones history – 11 brand new tracks that comprise the album ‘Fire Music’, set for release in the UK on February 9, 2015 as digipack CD and vinyl LP. The record is produced & mixed by Juno Award winning producer Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Cancer Bats).

Check out a taste of things to come by way of scorching new track ‘Gonna Be A Fight Tonight’. Danko Jones are taking no prisoners nor sparing any survivors! The accompanying video includes footage from the 2014 Motörhead cruise, a show at Stockholm’s Gröna Lund amusement park, and the recording of the new album. Watch on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/e04SBHtbfl4. You can also find the track on Spotify and via iTunes.

‘Fire Music’ is an album that burns at both ends, showcasing Danko Jones at their most energetic and eclectic. Look forward to some of the most incendiary, fierce, and downright pissed-off songs Danko Jones has ever committed to tape. Imagine a greatest-hits career retrospective made up of all-new material, delivering blasts from the past but blazing trails into the future. “I got a date with dynamite,” Danko sang back in 1996 by way of introduction, “if you got the guts, well, light my match.” On ‘Fire Music’, that offer still stands.

NICK CAVE SINGLE

The film’s directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard spoke of the impact the band and their music has had on them and their debut feature 20,000 Day On Earth since shooting Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds live at Sydney Opera house on their 2013 Push The Sky Away tour.
 
"’Jubilee Street’ forced its way into our film. We’d planned to end with ‘Push The Sky Away’ and it’s pertinent lyrics about rock ‘n’ roll getting you right down to your soul; but after the band played ‘Jubilee Street’ at Sydney Opera House we didn’t stand a chance. Only four songs in and there was Nick, transforming in front of us. Our lives haven’t been the same since."
 
The film constructs a narrative and cinematic reality that seamlessly blends performance and storytelling with emotional truths. Neither a music documentary nor a concert film, 20,000 Days On Earth contains not just electrifying performances, but also keen insights into the creative process: we see a song grow from the tiniest of ideas sketched out by Cave in his office to a monstrous epic performed by the peerless Bad Seeds on stage at Sydney Opera House.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds fifteenth studio album Push The Sky Away was released in 2013 to a chorus of laudatory global reviews, charting at number 1 in seven countries. With their recent US shows were extolled as “utterly spectacular” in NME, and hailed by their fans as their best yet, the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds story continues to unfold and grow.
 
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Thomas Wydler, Jim Sclavunos, Conway Savage, Barry Adamson and George Vjestica.


BLOW UP CLUB MONES TO ST MORITZ

 Blow Up :  New Friday Residency for 2015 // NYE Party at St. Moritz Soho

 

We’re pleased to announce that Blow Up will return to Soho for a weekly Friday night at the St Moritz Club, Wardour St – in January 2015 and will be preceded by a Blow Up New Year’s  Eve event at the venue.

Blow Up founder and DJ Paul Tunkin will be booking a live act each week to perform as part of the night.

St. Moritz Club is a basement venue in the heart of Soho, and one of the last ‘original’ venues in the West End, virtually unchanged since the 60s.
Paul Tunkin said "I have always wanted to do a night in St Moritz and have we’ve finally got around to it!" 

 

Please note Blow Up will also be returning to Peckham’s Bussey Building for club events south of the river where we have been operating from since 2013.

 

ABOUT THE BLOW UP CLUB:

CLUB HISTORY: October 16th 2014, marked exactly 21 years to the day when doors opened to the Blow Up club for the first time. A bona-fide legendary club night, being at the centre of the early to mid-Nineties Brit Pop explosion, cited as the catalyst and birth place of the Brit Pop scene and influencing the style and sound of a generation. Blow Up was voted as No.4 in Time Out’s Top Ten Clubs of the 90s, one of ‘5 Classic Clubs of Our Time’ by Vox Magazine (alongside The Blitz Club and Shoom) and as ‘The club that changed the world’ by Melody Maker. More recently Blow Up appeared in Time Out’s London Calling which described the club as "the breeding ground of the Brit Pop sound" and in NME’s Original’s Top Ten Britpop Moments.

From its origins at The Laurel Tree, Camden Town (1993-1996), to Soho venues the Wag Club (1996-2001) the Metro Club (2002-2009, for which Blow Up programmed the music and ran the award winning venue), and through various London venues since (2009-2014), Blow Up is one of London’s longest running club nights. Blow Up has hosted events in Europe, and further afield including events in USA, Russia and Japan, whilst the club compilations (‘Blow Up A-Go-Go!‘ and ‘Blow Up presents Exclusive Blend) have proved hugely popular worldwide: the former was a genre defining compilation of tracks from the club’s dance floor (mostly 60s originals), the latter a ground breaking compilation series, and one of the first to introduce the world to the delights of 60s & 70’s library music.

The club also spawned Blow Up Records, a London based independent label that began a few months later in 1994. Music on the label ranges from British and International Alternative Pop to Hammond-heavy Boogaloo, from New Wave to Electronic Music and Psychedelia. Releases include the aforementioned compilations, early output including debuts from The Weekenders and Add N to X, and from recent acts such as Alfa 9, Baltic Fleet, Big Boss Man, The Bongolian and new artists David Woodcock and Daiquiri Fantomas, reflecting the label’s continuing eclectic outlook.

BLOW UP PLAYLIST: Expect classic tracks from both Blow Up’s past and present: from Brit Pop era favourites to the current new Pop stylists putting the art back into pop . . . colliding with 60’s Dancefloor sounds of Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Swinging Soundtracks, Hammond Heavy Jazz, Pop Electronique, Easy Listening & Ye-Ye! French Pop and Brit Pop, Glam, Mod & New Wave Action.

SAINTS ALBUM + PREVIEW

The impetus for the added recording came from the recent reintroduction to The Saints of Barrington Francis, who played in the band from 1979 to 1989. “There’s magic that happens when Barrington, Peter [Wilkinson, the drummer] and I get together,” says Chris. “In this technological world where everything is nine million tracks on computer it’s very important to retain the immediacy of rock’n’roll, to keep that earthy, organic, primitive side. If you can type, you can type an album these days, but there’s something that happens when you rely on people playing together.”

The Saints have reached a huge new audience thanks to Bruce Springsteen, who covered their ‘Just Like Fire Would’ on his 2014 global No 1 album, High Hopes. “Bruce told me: ‘I bought the album when it came out and I’ve always really loved that song’,” says Chris. “I’d known that he’d done the song live on his last tour, but I never in my wildest imagining thought he’d release it”.

It’s the latest development in the career of a band that found themselves at the forefront of the punk revolution with the release of their era-defining single ‘(I’m) Stranded’ in 1976, (NME made it Single of the Week; Sounds made it Single of the Year; and EMI executives raced to sign them), that led to Top of the Pops, and a stack of classic albums. Since then The Saints have one moment blasted out the most raucous rock’n’roll, and the next created some the most affecting, emotional lyricism, and often even done it at the same time.

Chris Bailey’s songwriting has always been key to The Saints. “My job is to come up with vignettes that make sense on a poetic, intellectual and artistic level, and in the context of a rock’n’roll band, which is what I always want The Saints to be,” he says. “The Saints aren’t your average rock band. Never have been, never want to be. This is another manifestation of that.”

King of the Sun / King of the Midnight Sun out 17 November on Fire Records

“Worshipped… a truly great band” – NME

“More stage presence than an army of attitudinal hipsters and a back catalogue to kill for” – The Independent

“Chris Bailey, a distillation of [John] Lennon and… Van [Morrison], and one of the great punk larynxes” – Uncut

Share : facebooktwittergoogle plus
https://soundcloud.com/firerecords/the-saints-all-thats-on-my-mind/

The former garage-punks, recently covered by Bruce Springsteen, break new ground with two albums that are the same – but different…

Why would a band re-record their new album in its entirety and then release them both at the same time? Because, as leader Chris Bailey puts it, “it’s both sides of The Saints in one package”. And so the deluxe debut European release of their King of the Sun features not only that album – a beautiful, expansive collection that harks back to Saints high points like ‘Ghost Ships’ – but also a freshly recorded rock’n’roll take on exactly the same set of songs, recorded as live, and called King of the Midnight Sun.

“I’m very proud of the studio album as a listening piece,” says Chris. “It’s lyrical, musical, an exploration of songwriting. Midnight is more a celebration of the strengths of a rock band. There’s a swagger on it that there isn’t on the original.”

RUTS DC NOV/DEC TOUR

 RUTS DC NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER TOUR DATES 2014

 
The glorious rebirth of the legendary Ruts DC continues to pick up pace this month as the band head out on a series of dates throughout November and December. With the forthcoming release of their new ‘Live On Stage’ album and the reissue of their classic dub record ‘Rhythm Collision Vol: 1’ arriving November 24th through Cadiz Music, after a triumphant European tour, the band are primed to start a select UK run.
 
The live show consists of songs representing the many phases of The Ruts and Ruts DC. Mixing tracks from their most recent ‘Rhythm Collision 2’ album with their acclaimed 1981 ‘Animal Now’ release, their set also includes classic Ruts tracks such as ‘Babylon’s Burning’, ‘Staring At The Rude Boys’, ‘Jah War’ and ‘West One’, among others.
 
The two remaining original Ruts members – Segs Jennings and Dave Ruffy – provide an exciting powerhouse rhythm section for new addition Leigh Heggarty to excel on guitar. Segs handles the lead vocal/front man duties with panache and respect while Ruffy takes care of backing vocals as he holds down the perfect beat.

I hadn’t heard from Barrence for a while…I have now. Don’t “Turn Your Damper Down”…Turn it up!”-Elvis Costello

 

Barrence Whitfield is the Barrence Whitfield of R&B”.-Andy Kershaw BBC

IN SHORT:

Dig Thy Savage Soul is a wealth of atomic-powered, sock it to me R&B and rock & roll hoodoo. Barrence, possessing otherworldly pipes that range from a low feral growl rumbling the nether regions to a scream that would make Little Richard blush, belts out originals and crate-diver covers with the formidable and aptly-named Savages. They keep his back with a punk rock grit and blues ferocity that lives in the frets between Chuck Berry and Jack White. Together, Barrence and the Savages lay down a groovy racket that’s so thick and greasy, you need moist towelettes near the hi-fi.

 

Barrence Whitfield and the Savages shot out of Boston in the mid-‘80s with the force of a cannonball. Through their sweaty dance party shows and love of primal soul, they were to R&B what the Cramps were to rockabilly–a gateway musical drug for nascent underground roots mavens. Along with original Savages guitarist Peter Greenberg (The Lyres, DMZ) and bassist Phil Lenker, they released several records on Rounder, became a favorite of BBC DJ Andy Kershaw, toured with the likes of Bo Diddley, Tina Turner, and George Thorogood, and won seven Boston Music Awards. They re-united in 2011 with Savages Andy Jody on drums and Tom Quartulli on sax.
