Musical happenings

Have’t posted much recently, but this out just today from Midwich Youth Club (aka Allan R Murphy) gives me a good excuse.

This is ‘Force Feedback’ from an album of previously unreleased material entitled ‘Early works Vol 1: Perricoma 2000 – 2001’. Scroll down the Bandcamp page for a nice spiel about where it came from and what Allan was up to back then.

Sometimes a bit hit and miss putting out tracks which until the recent past had languished in cardboard box or on a hard drive somewhere, perhaps for good reason, but this is definitely a winner. Some familiar future echoes of firm favourite ‘Gamification‘, out last year.

In other news, am excited to say Dead Albatross 2015 is around the corner. The alternative to the Mercury Prize championed by Kamikaze (aka Paul Ackroyd) which showcases new music from the past 12 months from the UK and RoI. Really enjoyed being part of the extended folk picking out their top ten from the shortlist last year. The shortlisting process for 2015 is currently underway and they’re looking for suggestions for new albums, so get in touch. Looking forward to seeing what new musical gems are in store. It will be announced on 9 September (I’ll be away but hoping to keep in touch with it all). The winners will be announced on Wednesday 28 October.

Might have some other musical news in the near future, but will wait until a bit closer to the time.
