THE CURE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM!

Robert Smith has revealed that THE CURE are to complete a new album in the New Year.

The band’s frontman was speaking on US radio station SiriusXM following their induction into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame.

“Seeing all these new bands—I’ve listened to some of these bands and met so many of them that it’s kind of inspired me to do something new,” Smith explained. “So, yes, we’re going in about six weeks time to finish off what will be our first album in more than a decade. It’s very exciting times for us all around.”

WAYNE HUSSEY UNVEILS THEATRICAL RELEASE!

THE MISSION mainman Wayne Hussey has used downtime from the band to compose and record the score for a stage-play in brazil.

The award-winning As Irmãs Siamesas, which was written by José Rubens Siqueira and features Hussey’s wife Cinthya, is currently enjoying a two-month run at the Teatro Aliança Francesa in São Paulo, where the pair live.

Recorded over a two-month period last summer, Hussey – together with pianist James Bacon and violinist David Milsom – recorded the score for a CD for sale at perfomances. Due to demand from fans, however, a CD is being made available for a limited period through The Mission’s webstore.

Individually numbered and signed, and expanded to feature music not available on the original theatrical release, the CD will only be available for purchase from the store until midnight on Friday 30 November.

“I’ve never made it a secret that I harbour ambition to compose and score for film,” explains Hussey. “Sadly, for a myriad of reasons, I’ve never been presented with the opportunity to do so. So it was with open arms I recently accepted the invitation to write music for a stage play. As Irmãs Siamesas is a Brazilian play written by José Rubens Siqueira and this particular new version is directed by my good friend, Sébastien Brottet-Michel, a French actor who works with the world renowned Parisienne ‘Theatre De Soleil’. The fact that my wife, Cinthya, is one of the two actors in this two women play, the other being Nara Marques, is perhaps why I was offered the job. A little nepotism never hurt anybody.

“The brief was…brief. After conversation with Sébastien we decided the music should be slow – none of the tempos are over 70 bpm – empty and open with lots of space, flexible, unsentimental; music that doesn’t dictate the way an audience should react and feel to the dialogue and action on stage, but interacts with the actors in an unobtrusive way.

“We talked about the setting of the play as being timeless and placeless, rural rather than urban. I wanted to avoid using instruments that were modern, that required electricity, that would place it in a specific time. I thought about ageless acoustic instruments, such as a piano, a violin, and a classical acoustic guitar, that might be found in a lot of homes where the onus is on families entertaining themselves rather than by TV, radio, or, these days, the internet. These instruments became my exclusive sound palette for this project. Muted colours, if you want.

“It’s been a great learning process, and discipline, for me as a musician to compose and make music that doesn’t strive for, nay demand, the listeners attention. In conjunction with the brilliant English pianist, James Bacon, and renowned violinist, David Milsom, we have fashioned a series of adagios that, whilst are a million light years away from the music I usually create, I am so very proud of.”

PINK FAIRIES UNVEIL NEW VIDEO!

The story of Notting Hill rock’n’roll story rolls on with this excellent video from the new PINK FAIRIES album…

‘Old Enuff To Know Better’, written by former guitarist Larry Wallis, is taken from the album Resident Reptiles, which is out now on Purple Pyramid Records via Cleopatra.

But this is not the version of the Fairies that released the Naked Radio album a couple of years back and featured longstanding rhythm section Duncan ‘Sandy’ Sanderson and Russell Hunter.

This band’s Ladbroke Grove credentials are sound, however: founding Fairies guitarist (and sometime HAWKWIND bassist) Paul Rudolph returns after a long lay-off, joined by original MOTÖRHEAD drummer Lucas Fox and later Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey.

The album was recorded in Austin with Jurgen Engler from German industrialists DIE KRUPPS in the producer’s chair.

Resident Reptiles is available now on limited edition pink vinyl and CD.

BILLY BREMNER BOUNCES BACK!

Guitarist BILLY BREMNER has announced a pair of rare UK shows with his band ROCKFILES.

A onetime member of LULU’s backing band, Bremner came to fame as guitarist in the pub rock supergroup ROCKPILE alongside Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe and Terry Williams. He then went on to play with THE PRETENDERS on their hit ‘Back On The Chain Gang’ as well as playing numerous sessions with the likes of ELVIS COSTELLO, CARLEN CARTER and SHAKIN’ STEVENS, as well as enjoying a solo career with Stiff Records. More recently he’s been working in Sweden with THE REFRESHMENTS and with DUCKS DELUXE frontman Sean Tyla in THE TROUBLE BOYS, taking their name from his song, notably covered by Dave Edmunds and Thin Lizzy.

CULTURE ABUSE COVER THE EQUALS!

San Francisco punks CULTURE ABUSE tool up for their UK tour with a cover of THE EQUALS’ 1967 single ‘Police On My Back’.

Formed in Hornsey in 1965, The Equals had a number of hits including ‘Black Skin Blue-Eyed Boys’ and the millions-selling ‘Baby Come Back’ and spawned the career of Eddie ‘Electric Avenue’ Grant. ‘Police On My Back’, only released as a single in Europe, would later get a fresh boost when covered by THE CLASH on their Sandinista album.

A live favourite of Culture Abuse, their version features guest vocals from Zac Carper of FIDLAR.

“We’ve been playing this song live for the last year,” explains frontman David Kelling. “Then right after we recorded Bay Dream we were partying with Zac and thought it would be fun to try and tackle it together. Most people know it because of The Clash but the song was actually a cover by a band from the 60s called The Equals, fronted by Eddie Grant! So it’s a testament to how truly good the song is! We went into the studio hungover, the morning after we played with Fidlar in LA and knocked this out, mostly live, with some wild overdubbing.”

Touring in support of second album Bay Dream, the band play the following dates….

17 Oct  Southampton, Joiners  TICKETS
18 Oct  Birmingham, Actress & Bishop  TICKETS
19Oct  Nottingham, Bodega  TICKETS
20 Oct  Leeds, Key Club  TICKETS
21 Oct  Brighton, Hope & Ruin  TICKETS

SPENCER’S GOT THE HITS!

JON SPENCER has unveiled a video for the lead track from his debut solo album.

As previously announced Spencer Sings The Hits! is set for release on 2 November through In The Red Records.

The video for ‘I Got The Hits’ is the work of young Arizona director Alex Italics. Says Spencer, “Over the past year I kept seeing wonderful and strange music videos that had one thing in common: all were directed by an Alex Italics. I determined to track down this young auteur with the aim of getting a similar cinematic sensation for my new album Spencer Sings The Hits! Alex turned out to be a mild-mannered young man from Tucson, Arizona living in Southern California. I gave him a free hand to pick the song and devise a treatment. The result is the scary slice-of-life that you can now see for yourself.

“I love the creepy contrast with the song’s punk abandon,” continues Jon. “We filmed at a rented house in Santa Ana. At the end of each day, after the nearby nightly Disneyland fireworks had faded and the cast and crew had left, I would sleep in a bunk bed in the child’s bedroom. Turns out doing an entire video laying on the floor is harder than it looks!”

Spencer will be touring Europe in the UK over the next couple of months, both headlining and as special guests to THE MELVINS. Full dates are….

T.V. SMITH UNVEILS NEW SINGLE!

T.V. SMITH has announced a second single from his new album.

‘Never Again Until The Next Time’ is taken from Land Of The Overdose, which is just released on German label JKP, the label of punk superstars DIE TOTEN HOSEN.

“It’s been a long journey from 1977,” says the former ADVERTS frontman. “I used to think that punk rock was a one-off protest movement, but sadly now in 2018 there is even more to protest about. The punk spirit lives on. In Land Of The Overdose I’ve tried to sum up everything I feel about what’s wrong with the world and what we can do about it. The only compensation for me about the awful state we find ourselves in is that it’s inspired me to come up with some of the best songs I’ve ever written. I hope this album sends out a positive message that if we recognise the problems in the world things can start to change for the better, and that music can be a force for the good.”

Listen to ‘Never Again Until The Next Time’.

Catch T.V. Smith on the road at…

21 Dec – Leicester – Duffy‘s Bar
22 Dec – Manchester – Star & Garter
19 Jan – Worcester – Marr‘s Bar
20 Jan – Nottingham – Foremans
