But before that, we will bear witness to the evolution of a little thing that was called STUNNERS, then STUNNERS 130, that some of you may remember… wherein myself and my buddy Wade made PARTY music for DANCING, amped up as much as we could amp it. Well, working from our STUDIO OF DREAMS out in LA since last September we’ve been amping it harder and harder and harder, developing a new sound and a style we have decided can only be called PEAKWAVE, and we, together, are…
There we are hanging out where they filmed that lorry chase scene in T2, and I spent so much time fleeing polices in GTA San Andreas. HOLY GROUND.
Sex Drive, then. You can get a free download over on our Facebook page (if you don’t have Facebook page email me and I’ll send it you). The song up top is one of 20 odd we wrote over the past few months, and will appear in this humble demo-ish form on our MIDNITEMEN X COACHELLA mixtape, which is dropping later tonight. I’ve had more fun making this music than I’ve had in years, and I hope you guys dig it.
I’d actually finished recording the material that makes up ATDRIP last week. It was at 11 songs, having more than doubled from its initial mini-album length of 5 (five) over the course of a fortnight. Wade had suggested I redo Spring, which was one of the first songs I ever made, and the first to get played on radio, by Steve Lamacq if I recall correctly. Anyway, I told Wade I didn’t have time, because I didn’t, but then last week, a few days after moving into our new interim residence in Rhos On Sea, a funny thing happened, which was Spring appeared to appear, out of nowhere, amidst the fury of the Welsh winter… just for an afternoon, it seemed, but long enough to necessitate the swift writing and execution of this new version of one of my most classic of records, ten years old this week, and one that never got an official release for no good reason at all.
Dear Gaz Williams was good enough to rush a version of the master in time for a First Day Of Spring release, but Three Mobile hotspot internet wouldn’t get the song online last night, so here it is today – and while yesterday saw furious winds, rain, and a hailstorm that lashed poor little Hercules face into streams of shocked ice tears and left him shaking with terror and outrage – today is blue skies and birdsong. A real first day of spring.
Word just in from my Twitter fam – I appear to be starring in the new issue of Stray Bullets.
HOW DOPE IS THAT? WHAT AN HONOUR!
Unless its a clone. If it is its a good one, he’s even got my shirt on.
I’ve been reading the book on and off for years, ever since I found a copy in a comic shop in Liverpool when I ran away from home as a teenager one time, along with Milk & Cheese and One Bad Rat and Hate and Tank Girl. I read them in a Mcdonalds and then a pub, and when that closed I found an abandoned building with no roof and read them in there. I might have written a song about it once, a lifetime ago.
Interesting that I’m smoking. I started again when I got back to the UK, and spent about 4 weeks reading two volumes of A Song of Ice And Fire outside the back of pubs and whathave you, then I stopped again last week. LIKE A G. Gs can do that. Stop doing things, that is. Just because they decided to. Never underestimate the will of a man who has made a decision in full consciousness, and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do things without the help of drugs and queer devices. Amen.
ATDRIP is being mastered right now, so you’ll have it pretty fucking soon. New video ready to drop as soon as I get the OK from Seoul. In the meanwhile get your preorders in, and enjoy these initial video tasters.
I must now get back to work. Outside I can hear the sea, and a presumably local couple having a blazing row. “I’LL BURY YOU NEXT TO YOUR FOCKIN DAD YOU CUNT!” screamed the female, with passion. It is 1pm in Rhos On Sea. Spring is on its way.
