Sorry it has been a while, been busy both personally and musically – I now have a new rehearsal space which is fantastic – just pay for the electricity jobs a good un – well happy with that. The album is still being finished and now has a proper title. “Age Of Contempt” – and it will be delayed in being released, – Looking at releasing it in July now and maybe with the last download tagged onto the end of it. Reason for the late release is that I have been booked to play TWO festivals in August and September and want it ready for then – Rebellion in Blackpool which i am overjoyed at getting coz I didnt think I ever would get to play it and Undercover in Margate – Not forgetting that I am doing Blank Generation at the end of May but may be pushing it to get it done by then.
The live situation will carry on as it has as I am still working out the kinks for doing it live with backing tracks so you will have to put up with me shouting acoustically for now.
There is also a new vinyl in the offing – if anyone remembers my first proper release on vinyl was “We Are The Enemy” which was a split with Andy H – well, we are doing it again – we are releasing another very limited edition vinyl of 50 copies on clear vinyl with 2 CDs (one for each of us) and a few badges thrown in for good measure. It will be out for Halloween and the vinyl will have a Halloween based them for it – My CD (1 of the 2 ) at the moment, will contain tracks that never made it to the album, tracks, some that have only ever been released digitally or on compilations as well as a couple of other new ones – its almost going to be an album. May do another pre order on it – and those who paid for the full package last time will get both vinyl and CD (my album and The Split) because it doesnt look like the box is going to happen (i will refund if you would rather do that) – keep coming along to gigs and supporting live music and i will see you at the bar
Pre album single release – Introducing what i have called Russ Crimewave 2.0 – basically me an acoustic and some backing tracks.
Two cover versions SUBVERT (zounds) and a Trumpified “Jackbooting in The USA” (Surgery Without Research) with two other tracks one not going on the album “You’re A Terrorist” and a non album version “This Means War”
Its a quid to download all tracks (all monies going to fund the album – both covers are free individually) and there will be a limited hand assembled CDR in a paper bag with a few things thrown in it to justify the 3.50 (free postage tho) for those that dont do digital.
I have an nexpected new release – its a pay what the fuck you want download – so if you dont want to pay just stick a zero in the box and away ya go
7 Tracks Recorded live at The Castle in Sheerness on 10th December at my mate Dean’s Surprise 50th birthday including a brand new one (Trigger Warning) , a cover of a The Warriors song (Predator) and a song only available on vinyl (Buy Consume repeat)
We had problems with the DI box and had to ditch a few songs and all of my pedals so this is the only set I have done without my beloved Chorus pedal
Recorded as a video by Tony Phipps, the video was a bit dark and quiet so i ripped the audio boosted it a fair bit, left all the mistakes in, including the very out of tune Generation iDiot, took out all of the dead space and this is the result. Enjoy
Sales of the new CD were going spectacularly well when the “secure transaction” function ceased to work coz the bloody cerificate had run out and when do I find this out – 5 days later when someone tells me – loads of site vistors but zero sales – couldnt work it out.
I have now got it running again (thanks technical help for once you were very helpful) so apologies if you were one of the people who tried and failed to get a CD or download. Everything should be working again.
The album proper is coming next so please get voting on what tracks to go on it.
I know a few people have found this site before its official release on 12th Sept and a couple of you got lucky yesterday by managing to get the downloads before they were even started so I have made them available as from today. It says pre-order on the button, ignore that, just carry on.
The download has a variable price set so you can pretty much pay what you want – there is however a minimum as i still need to fund the main release. If i could afford to give it away i would. Thanks for taking part and downloading the album.
