CHELSEA NEW ALBUM UPDATE!

CHELSEA_8317_small 2016

Original punk legends CHELSEA have been in the studio recording a brand new album. Bassist Mat Sargent got in touch to let Vive Le Rock know how things have been going down…..

s10

Saturday Night Sunday Morning in 2014 was Chelsea’s first album in 10 years so the fans were ready for a new album. A killer line-up with James Stevenson from the first recording line-up and Nic Austin from the Evacuate period both on guitar.  The album did very well and for the 40th Anniversary the record company released the three Chelsea Anthology box sets of the complete studio recordings and unreleased demos.  All the studio albums were also reissued on limited edition coloured vinyl, which got the collector fans wanting more.  
 
The record company, Westworld Recordings, asked us to record a new studio album for the bands 40th Anniversary so in January 2016 Nic and I worked on demos, writing 4 tracks together –  ‘You’re No Fun’, ‘Control’, ‘Sun Stop Shining’ and ‘I Can’t take This’.

Chelsea s1
 
Nic and I both wrote the lyrics and music for ‘You’re No Fun’, it was the first track we wrote for the album.  Nic came up with a haunting riff for ‘Control’, I did a ‘Shakin’ All Over’ type bass line for the verses and we wrote the lyrics together, Nic wrote the hooky chorus.   Nic and I jammed ‘I Can’t Take This’, it just happened, it was a telepathy like when we’re on stage, we just knew where we were going with that song. Nic wrote the lyrics for the verses and I wrote the lyrics for the bridge.  ‘Sun Stop Shining’ was a song I wrote with a friend in mind, the late Tony Van Frater (bass player for Cockney Rejects / Red Alert) who had passed away a few months before.  Nic wrote the lyrics for the chorus and added the Chelsea morse code guitar. 
 
Nic had written 4 tracks of his own – ‘Fashion’, ‘Suit In The Spotlight’, ‘Let Me Go’ and ‘Something In The Air’. I’d also written a track ‘Old Town’ whilst I was in Florida visiting my Dad.  I had a dream about going back to my old town in Yorkshire but everything had changed and everyone had moved on.  It was the first time I’d written a song from a dream, I jumped out of bed one morning around 6am and scribbled the lyrics down around.  I remember an alligator swimming past in the lake in front of the house whilst I was writing it.

s2
 
I went over to Gene’s place a few times times for writing sessions in February and March 2017, we wrote ‘Jackie Got A Gun’, ‘Mission Impossible’ and ‘Sands Of Time’. Gene had already written some lyrics so I strummed the guitar and we wrote some extra parts for the songs.   I’d already written the music for ‘Jackie’s Got A Gun’ and Gene’s lyrics fit the track really well.  Gene had the idea for ‘Mission Impossible’, he even had a riff for it which he sang to me whilst I strummed along and wrote the chorus & solo.  When Gene sang me ‘Sands Of Time’, it reminded me of the Dave Goodman ‘Rocks Off’ era of Chelsea. Straight away knew it was asking for an acoustic feel.  
 
James came to a couple of writing sessions at Gene’s place when we wrote ‘I Don’t Know, I Don’t Care’. Gene and James wrote the chorus and Gene and I wrote the verses.  James also played through an old song called ‘Just Like Me’ which he’d written in 1978 for Chelsea but had never got used.  When Gene heard it he said, “That old thing, sounds alright though, why don’t we do that then?”…  So we did. 
 
I went over to Nic’s in April where we demoed the tracks I’d done with Gene and James.  Nic and I also wrote a new song ‘Make It Happen’ which just happened. Again it was the telepathy between us both, it just came from nowhere, we wrote the lyrics and music together.

s8
 
After listening to the demos on CD for a few weeks, Nic, Lee and I rehearsed the album in the basement of the ‘Hand In Hand’ pub in Brixton during April and May before we went into the studio to start recording.
 
On the 3rd June we went to Panther Studios in Surrey and ‘Mr. Lee’ laid down all the drums for 15 songs in just under 6 hours. The following day I put all the bass down which took around 5 hours and we started on rhythm guitars.  On the thrid and fourth day we cracked on with guitars and did the backing vocals.  A friend of mine Sam Jones popped over to the studio and played piano and flute on a track, James also recorded some rhythm guitars and did a few solos.  On the sixth and seventh day I worked on tidying the tracks up with producer Dick Crippen getting the backing tracks ready for Gene to do his lead vocal.  I redid a couple of bass tracks and Lee did some tambourine & shakers.

s11 
 
On Saturday the 10th of June after the first week in the studio, we played at the Camden Underworld for Gene’s birthday bash. Playing a gig just before going into the studio was a great way to warm Gene’s voice up for the recording session.  It was an excellent show with Chron Gen and Department S supporting, opening up the show for us.

s3
 
A few days after the gig, Gene came to the studio and spent 3 days recording the vocals.  James came back to the studio and finished his guitar tracks for all the songs.  I spent a couple of days sifting through the tracks with Dick, getting the best takes and getting the tracks ready for mixing.   Nic, Lee and I spent the last few days of the recording session doing final over dubs and mixing the tracks.
 
The album was initially to be called Mission Impossible and with 15 tracks to record & mix in just under 3 weeks it seemed an apt title.  Mission accomplished!

MARK EVANS JOINS ROSE TATTOO!

acdc_gibson-live

Aussie rock legends and Vive Le Rock faves ROSE TATTOO are set to return with a new line-up. And holding down the bottom end is none other than former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans.

Evans joined AC/DC in 1974, playing on their debut album High Voltage and leaving after the release of Let There Be Rock in 1977. Later replacing ex-Tatts guitarist Mick Cocks in heavy rockers HEAVEN, more recently he’s joined former BUFFALO and COUNT BISHOPS frontman Dave Tice in the acoustic duo TICE & EVANS.

News of the new Tatts line-up was broken in a Facebook post by another new member, former ANGELS guitarist Bob Spencer. Joining Evans and Spencer in the band are former AUSTRALIAN CRAWL drummer John Watson, Dai Pritchard – the band’s guitarist for the past decade – and of course frontman Angry Anderson.

Anderson, Evans and Pritchard recently hooked up in the band BLOOD, SWEAT & BEERS, a touring outfit put together in celebration of the music featured in writer Murray Engleheart’s essential Aussie rock history book of the same name.

THE N.J.E. UNVEIL NEW SINGLE!

London punk-jazz trio THE N.J.E. release a new single today, unveiling the video with Vive Le Rock!

Their highly original take on JIMI HENDRIX’s ‘Voodoo Chile’ heralds the band’s long-awaited debut album Afloat, which is out next month.

The video was shot by Liv Bedford at the trio’s regular haunt, Indo Bar in Whitechapel.

The NJE – or Near Jazz Experience – were formed in 2010 by three musicians with 2 Tone Records connections – sax-player Terry Edwards and drummer Simon Charterton are former members of Norwich punk-funkers THE HIGSONS, while Mark Bedford is the longstanding bassist with MADNESS. Between them, they’ve put in time with the likes of IAN DURY, NICK CAVE, THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN, SIOUXSIE, SNUFF, ALEX HARVEY, SPIRITUALIZED, TOM WAITS and BIG STAR.

Most recently Edwards has been a member of GALLON DRUNK, PJ HARVEY’S HOPE SIX DEMOLITION PROJECT and Tony Visconti and Woody Woodmansey’s BOWIE tribute, HOLY HOLY. He also joins Bowie pianist Mike Garson on his Aladdin Sane dates this autumn.

The 11-track album brings together studio recordings and live tracks, recorded at Indo and elsewhere.

Set for release on Friday 1 September through Sartorial Records, Afloat is available to pre-order here.

CHAMBERS EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE!

Yorkshire punk duo CHAMBERS are unveiling their new single exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ follows on from the pair’s previous singles ‘Hostile’ and ‘Sister Doom’ and is released through I’m Not From London Records this Friday 4 August.

“We filmed the video in four scenes which each highlight different moods and emotions experienced in relationships,” they say. “The song was originally written with an Alice In Wonderland theme in mind. Sometimes in life you can feel like you’re sinking down in to a bottomless pit, much like the one in Alice in Wonderland, where the more you worry about a situation, the worse it gets and you ultimately sink further and further in to a pit of self-doubt.”

The video was directed by Patrick Mateer and Josh Moore.

Recently winning funding from the PRS Foundation’s Open Music Fund enabling them to concentrate their resources on further recording and touring, the pair – who hail from Leeds and Hull – have already shared stages with the likes of Black Honey, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Clean Cut Kid and Louise Distras.

Chambers head into the studio later this year to work on a full EP. In the meantime they’ve got a bunch of festivals and gigs lined up. Full dates so far are….

4 August – Preston – The Ferret
5 August – Humber Street Sesh – BBC Introducing Stage
18 August – Driffield – Tribfest
19 August – Ashton Under Lyne – The Station Hotel
29 August – Hull – The Sesh
17 September – Worcester Music Festival – Firefly
2 October – Hamburg – Hafenklang (Germany)

IT’S A RAT, BY GOD!

Nashville post-punks THE BY GODS herald the release of their third album with a new single and video.

The decidedly grungey ‘Rat In My House’ is taken from Move On, which is set for release on 20 October. The single will be available on all the usual platforms from Monday 31 July.

Comprising husband-and-wife George and Natalie Pauley and drummer Tye Hammonds, the ban wrote much of the album during the divisive US presidential campaign. Produced, mixed and engineered by Alex Newport (Deathcab For Cutie, At The Drive-In) who was instrumental in the band finding their new sound, it’s a marked departure from the band’s earlier material.

“Living in a small town growing up, my friends and I always wanted to get out,”says George of the new single. “Most of us made it, but we still have to go back several times each year to see parents, attend funerals, parties, etc. It’s like a Black Hole, the draw it has and how it pulls people back after they move away. ‘Rat In My House’ is mainly about being stuck in a small town death trap. It’s like a maze you can’t find your way out of. It’s the same of all small towns, once you’re entrenched, you can’t see past the bubble and the small town becomes the centre of your universe. Some people prefer that I suppose.”

The band is currently on a lengthy tour of the US, with plans to visit the UK in the near future.

EAT DIRT ANNOUNCE DEBUT GIG!

Secretive London punks EAT DIRT have unveiled a video ahead of their debut show this weekend.

’48’ is one of four tracks on their Eat Dirt I EP, which is available across all the usual platforms and from their website.

Speaking about the track, the band’s vocalist says, “The song is about growing out of the party life, and not being angry any more. And the struggle of trying to find something to be angry about. Like social media ‘influencers’ and sensationalist journalism.”

The band play their first ever show this Sunday 30 July at The Sebright Arms, Bethnal Green, London with FIGHTS AND FIRES, DELAYED and MIAMI NICE. The show is free entry and doors are at 7pm.

The band then play New Cross Inn, London on Friday 4 August with PEARS.

Born of anger and frustration in late 2016, Eat Dirt brought together members of previously well established UK bands to record the band’s debut EP – clocking in at under five minutes – with producer Justin Hill of SIKTH, taking influence from THE BRONX, COMEBACK KID, GALLOWS and EVERY TIME I DIE.

“I’d given up on music. I wasn’t really angry enough,” their frotnman declares. “I had nothing to sing about anymore. Then the whole Brexit thing happened. I’m mad at people. I’m mad at the world around me. As a group, we need to vent. Eat Dirt is that release.”

FLESH FOR LULU DEBUT REISSUED!

flesh for lulu

FLESH FOR LULU are to have their debut album reissued for the first time in more than 30 years.

The eponymous album was originally released in 1984 through Polydor and featured the classic singles ‘Subterraneans’ and ‘Restless’.

The album forms the backbone of a new double-CD set The Polydor Years. The 34-track compilation also includes all four tracks from the Brixton band’s 1983 debut Roman Candle EP, plus various b-sides, remixes, rarities and BBC sessions for Janice Long, Kid Jensen and John Peel.

Dropped by the label the following year, the band released records on indies Hybrid and Statik, before signing to Beggars Banquet and going on to US college radio success with the single ‘I Go Crazy’ and album Long Live The New Flesh.

Frontman and founder Nick Marsh put together a new line-up of Flesh For Lulu in 2013, as well as being an integral part of THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE, but sadly succumbed to cancer in 2015.

Check out ‘Restless’ live in ’85.

The Polydor Years is set for release through Caroline International on 1 September. It’s available to pre-order here.

SILO LIVING WITH PERE UBU!

pere ubu

Iconic Cleveland art-punks PERE UBU are to release a new album in September.

David Thomas’s avant garde quintet formed out of the ashes of legendary proto-punks ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS and have been generating consistently pioneering and challenging sounds ever since, save for a period of inactivity in the mid 80s.

20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo follows on from 2015’s Carnival Of Souls, and finds the band fielding a three-guitar line-up including Kristof Hahn of SWANS matched with an orchestra of digital and analogue synthesisers.

“The new album is The James Gang teaming up with Tangerine Dream,” explains Thomas. “The Chinese Whispers methodology we worked on the last two albums has been replaced by the Dark Room. Put musicians in a lightless room and by feeling one small section of an unknown object have them figure what it must be.”

The album was recorded once again at Suma Studios in Painseville, Ohio, where the band have worked since their debut album The Modern Dance with engineer Ken Hamann and his son Paul.

Pere Ubu plan to tour the album in the US, returning to Europe in 2018.

20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo is set for release on 29 September. It’s available to pre-order now on vinyl and CD.
