Exciting things have happened in my life and I’m a bit lax doing other things at the moment, but I’ve got 5 minutes spare so I’m going to share our latest band product with you. It’s D4, our latest EP/album of many/no names. You can get it for streaming or download in several places, the major ones being:
Go give it a listen.
And watch this space as something else will happen soon…
It is what it says on the tin. Heavy Mind Owls, our latest EP, is all recorded and available on SoundCloud. We’ll get it to Spotify and other stores in a bit.
We’re either halfway through recording the next album, or 90% of the way through doing an EP. Probably an EP. It needs a name, it’s the fourth thing we’ve done in the current incarnation of the band – and almost all of it is played in drop-D, so we were playing around with names the were to do with the letter D or number 4 (with the added coincidence of D being the fourth letter of the alphabet). Even without a name for the EP we got thinking about cover art, and with D being delta in Greek we got on to trying to use triangles (yes, we’re getting abstract). Then we looked through for symbols that were triangular and ended up looking at old Alchemical symbols. So, stealing the idea from Led Zeppelin 4 (four again!) we chose a symbol each. Tonight, those symbol entered the glorious world of merchandise – meaning I put them on some T-shirts.

“Kill, Kill, Beer, Whisky” may be the name or our next EP. It could easily be “Your Face Is A Compromise” too. Or something else, it’s just too soon to tell.
Kill, Kill, Beer, Whisky is my summation of Motorhead lyrics. Pete was saying he’d been listening to them recently and the lyrics were actually deeper than you’d expect. ( And any opportunity for facetiousness will be taken, but I won’t detail the Record Breakers theme tune that followed here ). Your Face Is A Compromise is one of Simon’s lyrics that will actually be on the EP, giving it a little more chance of making it. It’ll be a little time before it’s done yet and I’m sure another name will come along. We know we have five songs for the EP now: How To Breathe, So Far From Me, Half-Life, Lover Best Forgotten, and Knock Me Down. And we intend to go professional for the recording. Step up a level from this DIY malarky. For now, watch this space.
Here it is, 13 years not in the making, Dark Moon. Pete, Simon, Rob, and technology (Stumpy Boxhead) have finally recorded the 13th track for the album HowManyDevils. That track is Dark Moon which is here in its’ Legacy version on the 13 EP, along with some remixes.
Fittingly for a Dark Rock band the release date is Friday, 13th of January 2012.
