The day is almost upon us!

Brothers and Sisters!!

How are you all?! 

I did a fantastic gig at Luna Lounge last night, thanks to all those that were there! I love playing there because not only are the crowd warm and receptive, but the promoters/owners treat the musicians with the upmost respect. There is none of this "We're doing you a favour" belief. Oh no, they know this is mutually beneficial and so work hard to help us out as much as we help them. Love it. 

I really look forward to getting back there and playing again.

On other news, Monday sees the release of the new EP, Misspent Future!!! Exciting, make sure you get yourself a copy by clicking HERE

Also, at midday on the same day (16th Feb) the brand spanking new video will be played on my FACEBOOK page!!

And then if that wasn't enough I play a solo gig on the 16th and 18th and then the mighty One Ts are back on stage with me, headlining the Barfly! Check out all the gigs HERE

Yep, there is much to be excited about here in Mathews HQ, believe!!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Tune of the week!

Today it is the ninties band, Smaller with Wasted.

I found out about 'Smaller' from the mighty Chief himself, Noel Gallagher, who back in the day had mentioned the song 'Digsys Dinner' was about his mate - Peter 'Digsy' Deary who was lead singer in a band called 'Smaller'. Smaller, a band from Liverpool, released one, great called 'Badly, Badly' and this was one of the singles lifted from it. It's scouse ninties indie at it's best and reminds me of fellow LIverpudlians 'The La's'. Snarling vocals and simple but huge guitar riffs make this an absolute stomper and a good one to play before going out and getting wasted yourselves!

Just a reminder that this Monday (16th Feb) my 4th studio EP, Misspent Future, is released along with the brand new video for the last single lifted from it, Someone!

Seriously this video is incredible and features none other than my little bro, believe!!

Music Video number 3!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Good day to you all, because that's what I want you all to have - A damn good day!

I'm feeling exhausted after last nights music video shoot for 'Someone'. We were meant to shoot it on Friday night, but owing to gridlocked traffic on the isle of dogs for hours it never came to pass. So, as a last minute decesion to quickly get it done before the release of the 'Misspent Future' EP, (16th Feb) we enlisted my brother to be our actor (he's a professional thesp, don't you know?!) and then we sped down to a studio in Brixton.

All went well. We were quick and managed to roll through the video getting some awesome performances. We experiemented a bit and found our favourite version before declaring it was a 'Wrap'! 

It was merely 10:40pm and we were done. We were very happy with ourselves as we expected it to go on to the early hours. Oh how we congratualted ourselves. We were in a heedy, happy, self obsessed mood. 

Cabs weere called and we packed up ready to go. 

And then. 

We found that the gates had been padlocked shut! We were locked in! How could this be?!!

The studio had always been open 24hours for us creative types and now we were like dogs in a kennel!

This was not good.

"Why didn't you just climb over the fence?" I hear you say. Well, smart arses, the reason being is that we had massive amounts of lighting and camera equipment that had to be delivered back in the morning. We simply couldn't leave without it and this stuff is HEAVY!

However, my brother - 'The Talent' - didn't need to wait around. So, we grabbed a ladder and helped him over to a waiting cab and freedom. He waved goodbye as we were left, behind bars dreaming of a life on the outside. 

It turns out that the site had recently been accuisitioned by another company who had decided on THAT night, to lock the gates! After numerous phone calls we found that the closest person who worked for the company was down in Kent and was not planning to come and set us free.

The dick.

So, we did the only thing left. We called a lock smith and waited in the cold studio listening to songs about captivity, dreaming of what we were going to do when we eventually got out.

Hours later we had a man cutting through the locks. A man who was uncomfortable to be around due to his VERY perculiar personality. Although, with a job that requires you to be cutting locks at strange hours in the evening I guess you're going to be slightly weird. 

We got our cabs and made our way home. Sweet, sweet home!

Check out my Facebook and Twitter pages that will be updating with pictures and videos of the shoot.

But boy do we have a great music video for you! Oh yes, I am really hoping to get it through post production and out there for the release of the EP because it's awesome, believe!!

FORWARDS!!

Bobby Mahoney

Behind the Song: "Star-Crossed"

Courtesy: Nathalie Le Pennec

It's now been more than seven months since the release of Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son's debut full-length album, Friends in Low Places. Despite the time, the songs remain fresh for much of the loyal fanbase.

One of the favorites for the crowd continues to be "Star-Crossed." Bobby and Jon discuss track No. 8 in the newest "Behind the Song."

Where did you draw inspiration for "Star-Crossed?"

BM: "I drew inspiration from 'Peter Pan,' 'West Side Story,' 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Bonnie and Clyde.' A lot of fucked up love stories that were doomed to fail. These relationships were completely romanticized and ill-advised, but they were dumb and in love and followed their hearts (usually to their own demise)."

JA: "I didn't have much to say with the lyrics for this one, but very much its aura. We didn't really have a true bombastic, epic-in-sound track yet for the album at that point, and that's something I'm big on. So I would say I had a pretty big influence on the track sounding (audibly) how it does."

How did the song change since how you initially wrote it?

BM: "What ended up being the chorus, was originally the bridge and at Jon’s suggestion, I re-worked the song and it came out to how it is on the record. There was also a third verse that we cut in order to streamline the song, but we use it as a live intro to the song. I wish I didn’t have to cut it, but I’m glad we were able to repurpose it."

JA: "The song was originally three verses, a bridge and a chorus. He was going for something different, and I respect that, but when I heard the bridge, I knew that was the catch. That was the part I remembered from it. That was the part I could see thousands singing along to at once. I begged him to redo it with that as a chorus, throw in a solo and have this huge ending. I actually ended up composing the drums for this song, with two sticks I had laying around and a bedspread. I also wrote the lead for the song that Dan plays live."

What's your favorite element of the song?

BM: "I really enjoy the verses and the solo. The crowd usually sings the chorus, so I also enjoy that aspect of it."

JA: "Obviously the chorus is great, but my favorite part of the song is undoubtedly the solo. It tells a story, which I beg and push Bobby to do every single time he records one. It's actually my favorite part of the entire album."

This is one of the poppier songs on the album. Were you trying to write one like that?

BM: "Not really. When I sit down to write, I don’t go 'oh I’m going to write a pop song, or a love song' I just put the pen to the paper and let my mind wander until I find something that feels right."

JA: "I don't think it hurt that we wrote one. I wanted this enormous sounding anthem of sorts. I think, to a degree, that gets across."

How is it represented live?

BM: "Like I said, we use the cut third verse as the intro, and the crowd really gets into this song because of the easy, catchy chorus. It is always a fun, high-energy song to play live."

JA: "It's the only song that we play I use effects on. So that's pretty cool. Crowd really gets into this one, and I give a nice lead-in to Bobby's solo. Dan and Joe add a lot on backup vocals too."

Where does it stand on the album for you?

BM: "It is the only full 'love' song on the record, and the main character is referring to the same girl he is refers to in the end of 'Scoundrels.'"

JA: "I personally would have placed it after 'Deadbeat' on the album, but I get why it comes after 'Guilden Street.' It works."

Will this one stick around as you enter Another Deadbeat Tour?

BM: "I don’t see why not. I like it and the band likes it and the crowd likes it. Even Joe sings along."

JA: "Not my say, but I sure hope so. Maybe stagger it a bit to make it more special."

Mahoney also noted he recorded all the leads and solos for the song in one take, a rarity these days for musicians.

I've got to "Morocco"

Brothers and Sisters!!

How are we all? Life good? Excellent to hear!

We've been having good sessions with the 2015 version of The One Ts! It's all coming together nicely. At the end of last year, due to other personal circumstances, we had to lose our drummer and friend Paul Hayward from our line up. But we quickly drafted in James Grant and we are a piping hot 4 piece again!

All is in preparation for our first gig back on the scene on 20th February at the Barfly, Camden where we'll be headlining and promoting the new EP, 'Misspent Future'

Also, I'll be away from today as I'm off to Morocco to try and get some new sounds! I figured I got an EP worth of material when I was in Peru, so let's see what else I can get!

With that in mind, please follow me on Twitter (@markmathewssong) and Facebook (markmathewsmusic) for updates and the like!

As a little leaving gift, here's an acoustic version of a track that is likely to be on the next EP later this year. It's called 'Bye Bye, Me' and was written in the JUngle of Peru...oooohhhhhh!

Right, I've got to 'Morocco', believe!!

Remembering Steve Spiller.

Steve Spiller

We lost our great dear friend and photographer Steve Spiller just over one month ago on December 8th 2014. Steve was diagnosed with cancer during September 2014. Steve fought really hard and was amazingly positive for the last few months but unfortnately the cancer was very aggressive.

From a meeting at a bar in Ilford to many a great day in many an amazing place and many a great laugh the memories of Steve will be with us forever. We shared many a good day and night at concerts, gigs, motor rallies, parties and all enjoyed some great times together over the past 20 years or so.

One of Steve biggest passions was music, and he loved having a jamming seession with friends.

Steve's other big passion was photography, a highly accomplished and skilled photographer Steve  devoleped his photography into an outstanding career with many worldwide famous pictures of many a star and event taken by Steve earning him the great title in London of "King Pap".

Steve took all our early pictures and even the picture of the stand at Celtic Park which became the cover of  The Field's Of Athenry (Celtic. F.C. Mix). Steve also helped set up and shoot our Ole, Ole Ole video in 2002 and took all the wonderful pictures that day back in 2002 as well as many great outstanding pictures with us in studio, on the road and at gigs over the years.

So proud and happy to have been able to put Steve's song Fairy Queen on our Emails At the Cliffs Of Moher album, something I know he cherished to have had a song he wrote recorded and on one of our albums. Steve joined us the night Greg and I mixed our most downloaded track Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young. It was our last night in studio finishing that Life Goes On album and what a night it was, a night to cherish forever.

Steve loved Ireland and together we shared many a great day at a motor rally. Steve really enjoyed the buzz and craic around the rally scene and made many good friends and contributed to a fair few memorable rally days and nights along the way with great hospitality and nights at Steve's parents house in Carlow en route.

Steve and Aine's wedding was a great day in Mayo and one was so happy to be invited to.

It is so sad that Steve has been taken from us all, most of all his so loved wife Ann, his family and friends. Life can be so unexplainably cruel at times.

Ann, the Spiller and Monaghan families have set up a Justing Giving page for Steve to give family, friends and colleagues the opportunity to donate to Cancer Research UK so that the battle may be won by others in the future.

https://www.justgiving.com/stevespiller

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ann Spiller, the Spiller and Monaghan families at these very unexpected sad times. Rest In Peace Steve, you will always be with us and your great fab work will live forever. Donald.

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!!

It's here again, Tune of the Week!!!

Today it is this amazing tune from, 'The Only Ones" - Another Girl, Another Planet. For me this has one of THE best intros to a song that exists. It's up there with 'Gimmie Shelter' by the Rolling Stones or 'Baba O'Reilly' by The Who. It is almost it's own song within a song and ther eis no way you can turn the tune off when that massive hook gets going. A huge tune, with great lyrics and an amazing vocal from Peter Perrett.

Turn this up and have yourselves a marvelous weekend! It's a banger, believe!

FORWARDS!!

Show Report - Light of Day, 1/16/15

Photo courtesy: Conni Freestone

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son has been a little busy over the past few months...so we apologize for the lack of show reports.

But that's not a bad thing of course. In fact, 2014 was the busiest year the band ever had. So needless to say, 2015 was due for a big start.

The band took The Saint by storm Jan. 3, debuting a slew of new material and rocked Bar A in Belmar, New Jersey in honor of Clarence Clemons. But it would be Friday, Jan. 16 that would be etched in the history of Seventh Son lore. And nonetheless, it was for a good cause. 

Just a couple of months after taking to Canada for the foundation, Light of Day brought itself to New Jersey for what has annually become one of the biggest weeks in the Tri-State area. And this year, the Seventh Son band was part of it.

Hundreds graced The Stone Pony in Asbury Park for the second-biggest show of the whole weekend. While of course Bobby & Co. would be featured, they would be a small footnote on a tremendous bill of some of the most talented rockers and songwriters in the world today. Names like James Maddock, Ten Ton Mojo, Willie Nile among others were there to help raise money to cure Parkinson's Disease, and as Canada showed, Light of Day truly is one of a kind.

It would be a short set for the guys, but nonetheless, one of the most exciting in the band's history. With barely any space to move in the audience, Seventh Son hit the stage with an explosive start. "New Age Outlaws," fresh with its extended introduction, kickstarted the five guys into a frenzy, with Bobby and Jon sharing the microphone as the song climaxed to an immense crash.

In keeping emphasis on power, the band launched into the recently-debuted ".38 Special." Hamming it up more than ever, Bobby motioned for Jon to "shoot [him] down," igniting a breakdown fueled by musical craftiness. The bass, interweaving with breaks left open by the guitars and drums, created a spectacle for the crowd.

A tight version of "Danger Dan" led way for the always powerful "Scoundrels," which was cut short due to time constraints. However, the band introductions allowed for a slowing down of the set, setting the perfect pace for what would be the finale.

"Another Deadbeat Summer" took its familiar spot as the show closer, but this time, it was chaotic. Danny Gochnour of Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, "Mouth of the South [Jersey]" Gary Tripieddi, Johnny Pisano of the Willie Nile Band, Joe Rapolla, Eddie Mac of Projex and even Bobby's mother herself joined the band on stage among several others to set the table for what would eventually prove itself as one of the most epic nights of Light of Day.

It was one of those nights where you realize there's something special in the air. And whether it was the electricity of a Mahoney guitar solo, the high voltage brought on by a Marshall with some mojo, the showmanship of a man from Bleecker Street or the dedication of the tremendous Light of Day staff, it all just came together.

And we're just around the corner until next year.

Setlist

1. New Age Outlaws

2. .38 Special

3. Danger Dan

4. Scoundrels

Misspent Future

Brothers and Sisters!!

Well, thanks to all those who sent in their pictures and artwork to be considered for the 'MIsspent Future' EP. There were some really great pics to chose from but there can and was only one winner...

Drum roll...

The clear winner goes to Mike Sumpter for this cover that really does work with the tracks on the EP

Isn't she beautiful?!

So, I'm very happy about that and now this cover, along with three great indie-pop tunes (!), will be released worldwide on the 16th February!

Well exciting!

But there is no rest for the wicked, because whilst an EP is about ready to come out I am already moved on and getting my next EP together and so far it is sounding like a belter! I have a ton of tracks and I am working on what ones are going to make the cut, but rest assured there are some folky, indie, pop tracks coming your way later this year, believe!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!!

I hope you've had a great week and to get you all set for the weekend, here's the 'Tune of the week'!!

The song was written by Bob Dylan, but the above version is played by little Georgie (Harrison) from a beat group called, The Beatles. You might have heard of them. I love both versions to be honest, I just think it is a beautiful song. The simplicity of Dylans stuff really draws me, and millions of others, to him because let me tell you, sounding simple is the hardest thing to do! Lyrically, this is the love song I wish I had have written but I am happy to just listen to it and one day maybe I'll play it to a loved one...or maybe I'll just play it at a mates wedding, believe!!

ART OF WAR 305: Web Three vs. Lion Da Animal

Thank you to everyone that tuned into ‪#‎wakeupcall‬ with ‪#‎therock‬ last night. At the filming I battled 4 times. Including twice against the guy the show was about. He was actually decent. For some reason the producers chose to change the script to make it seem as if he gave up and didn't battle..? Oh well. ‪#‎webthree‬ logo commercial tho! Lol.

Checkout my latest battle here. Thanks again guys.
