Luis Ogando at Beeston Carnival 2014

Luis will be playing at this year's Beeston Carnival on the 12th July 2014, and is already getting excited about it!

"It's going to be great fun supporting the carnival and I'm really looking forward to getting some new material out at such a great event. We go to the carnival every year and love the atmosphere, especially the entertainment and live music, so it will be total blast to be a real part of it."

"I've been working on some new songs, so to be able to premier them for my home town is also very special for me."

But it's not just the original material that Luis has been working on. He's been tinkering with his set list and adding additional covers to his repertoire, which also have additional backing tracks to boot.

"I normally only use backing tracks for parties where I expect a lot of dancing, but I think it would be good to add some oomph to the Carnival performance with some extra sound. I've custom-built all my backing tracks so that I can still play the guitar, or harmonica, or whatever over the top without clashing. It's a fun way to deliver a full-band sound as a solo artist."

The Beeston Carnival takes place on Saturday 12th July at Broadgate Park, Beeston. Check the SHOWS section for directions. Festivities start at 12 Noon.

Luis Ogando

Gearing up for the Big Friday Night

The Big Friday Night event at the George Spencer Academy, Nottingham is getting closer and Luis is gearing up his 5-song set for the event, which includes a special treat, as he'll be kicking off the set with new song, 'Blow It All'.

A sneaky pre-release version of the song has been available on the Player for some time now, but this will be the first time the full song will be performed officially, in its completeness (the preview song only has 1 verse and chorus).

"I'm really looking forward to performing the song, as it's a real return-to-my-roots sort of affair. No complicated chords or sequences, just a great beat-strum foot-tapper. The sort I like to do." 

"There are good and bad points about bringing a new song to the fore, especially with a relatively new audience. There's the intrepidation of whether it'll be well-liked or not, but if it goes well, the feeling is just magical. So I'm hoping it'll be well-liked!!"

"I'll also be performing 'Take A Look', 'Love', 'A Little Bit Like Kiss Me' and a cover - which I haven't decided on yet, but it'll be something I like, so I hope it'll go down well."

You can catch Luis from 6.40pm at the Big Friday Night event, this Friday, at the George Spencer Academy. For more details, visit the Level events website: http://levelthevision.wix.com/levelevents

We are not Worthy (farm)

Brothers and Sisters!!

How was your weekend? Did you make it to Glastonbury? If you did...you lucky buggers!

I think that this years was one of the best of recent times. Owing to gig commitments I couldn't actually go down to Worthy Farm and get involved, however I managed to watch hours and hours of it on Iplayer...at the cost of everything else I needed to get done!

A small price to pay though, as I was just astounded by every act I saw. Whether it be on the Introducing stage or the Pyriamid stage, every act seemed to have turned it to eleven and gone that extra mile. Haim, put on a great show even if their lipsticked bassist did look as though she had shoved 14 grams of MDMA up her anus.

There were so many acts who put on a proper 'show' this year and made it abundantly clear: You gotta be good to be on the top. It really opened my eyes and allowed me to see what it really means to be an act. Those 4 or 5 people (or 45 if you're Arcade Fire!) on stage are lifted to a status of almost God like stature (well, that's the pedal stool I put bands on, anyway!). I want them to be out of reach, out of this world and out of their mind as they play their Bass guitar or whatever. They need to be doing something so awe inspiring that you are amazed at where it cam from...Did you see Royal Blood?...I mean, fucking hell, that's a bass guitar he's playing like a guitar!!!

This years festival re-energised my love for live music and I wasn't even there! I was inspired, dumb founded and back in love with all that is happening in the world of Western music. Lilly Allen proved how great a pop act she is, Kasabian put on a 'go fucking mental' rock n roll show and Dolly Parton sang the hits through a mountain of Botex atop the biggest tits in the business!

Myself and The One Ts played on Saturday in Piccadilly. It was a pretty good show, (aside from a dodgy Promoter, but I'll save that rant for another blog post!) but after Glastonbury I want more! So, expect us to be sticking class A drugs up our arses, make our instruments sound like something else and for us all to have face lifts and gigantic man boobs.

It'll be one hell of a show, believe!!

FORWARDS!!!!!

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

Show Report - The Stone Pony, 6/22/14

Photo courtesy: Ethan Reiss

Perfect. 

It's the only word that can be used to describe the incredible afternoon/evening that was the Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son Friends in Low Places CD release party.

Hundreds packed legendary Stone Pony over the course of Sunday to catch a glimpse of some of the best local bands the New Jersey music scene has to offer, and for the price of $10, anyone who caught even just one act instantly got their money's worth. Brielle Liebman kicked things off with an acoustic set, as the singer/songwriter belted as a call for help about various topical issues in today's troubling world.

Afterwards, Social Harvest made its long-awaited return to the stage with an absolutely blistering set that captivated everyone in attendance. Highlights of the performance included the falsetto-full "Intruder" and a killer rendition of Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" that had everyone dancing.

Check Your Morals, fresh off an appearance at "The Break" contest and the Skate & Surf Festival, then took the floor. The band displayed their fluidity throughout their set, going as far as pulling songs out of a hat to determine what would be the next one played.

It was then turn for Tim Gysin and his band to give their shot at wooing the increasingly-growing crowd in Asbury. Gysin, who contributed ideas and lent his vocal talents to Friends in Low Places, wowed the audience with his musicianship, supported in part by Giancarlo Cordasco on drums. Cordasco served as the drummer for the majority of the album as well.

Creating Clementine served as the warmup for the headliner, doing what they do best. Their set began with a vocal intro by Seventh Son's Jon Alba, which is actually the first track on their newly-released EP A Man's Best Friend. Bobby would join the band for a few songs on lead guitar to spice things up as well, putting quite the exclamation point on the opening acts.

Then it was time. The band formerly known simply as "Seventh Son" spent more than seven months preparing Friends in Low Places, and it was time to debut it live for more than 200 people in attendance. 

The performance kicked off with James McIntosh smoking the crash on his drums and pummeling through his hi-hat and snare, as Jon then yelled the words that would sum up what was about to occur:

"He's back!"

With that, Bobby kicked into the lead guitar riff to Elton John's "Bitch Is Back," and the boys were off. The crowd, surprised by the choice to open with a cover (nonetheless, an Elton John cover), ate it up, and chanted along with the chorus.

Fired up, the band went into a triad of Seventh Son favorites, keeping the capos on and charging into "Worrisome Child." The audience, still buzzed, then popped even louder for the welcomed return of "Left For Dead," played for the first time since December. After that, "Thick As Thieves" got everyone rocking again, with Bobby and Jon dueling in licks after the guitar solo for the audience's delight.

What followed next was far from the norm, as Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son became Green Day, with Bobby handing his guitar off to good friend of the band and tech for Blues Traveler, Jake Katz, for a rendition of "St. Jimmy." Dan Cohen's guitar shined, chugging its way through the punk anthem. Just five songs in, and it was chaos and pandemonium at The Stone Pony.

Bobby and Jon then broke things down with an acoustic set, sending the rest of the band off stage. Friends in Low Places got its start in this matter, so it felt only appropriate to do the lead in for the album in such a way. "Ultimatum" off Delicate Fall From Grace got things started, the first time ever played with two guitars. But what was next would be one of those several moments that made the evening so special.

"A few weeks ago, Jon told me I should bring this one back," Bobby said, referring to a song that hadn't been touched in more than three years. "So if it sucks, it's his fault."

A re-written version of the rare "Too Good For Me" then came to life, with Jon performing guitar harmonies as Bobby tied up a chapter of his early work with new lyrics. It was reflective, and with a new bridge and re-worked harmonica solo, was a far cry from some of the bare bones material on the new album. "Crazy Dreams" off Delicate, an institution when the two play acoustic, closed off the short set.

All of that before the new album was even touched. 

The Seventh Son then came back up, and it was time to delve into Friends in Low Places. "Teenagers Too," complete with feedback and an extended breakdown got things rolling straight into "Hit The Town" without a break. Bobby ignited the crowd with some call and response before telling the tale of his triumphs as the "king of kings" (a verse actually performed by Jon, who penned the tune, for this special evening). 

Photo courtesy: Ethan Reiss

"Everyone put your eyes on this guy," Jon then said to the audience, pointing at bassist Joe Larkin as the band prepared for "Danger Dan." "He's about to do some really cool shit." And that he did, and with Danger Dan himself on stage, the band launched through a wah pedal, bass-infused version of the third track on the CD.

"New Age Outlaws," the first single off Friends in Low Places, followed up at a blistering tempo, but got the blood pumping back through the five guys. Bobby then introduced the track that inspired the album title, "Scoundrels," and brought the band down as he introduced each member of his backing corps. Rather than introducing himself though, he merely summarized:

"I'm a half-hearted deviant, raised from the bottom line."

The powerful ending to "Scoundrels" then made way for one of the highlights of the night. After Jon outwardly accused Bobby of not inviting the band to a day at the beach (a reference to the recently-released music video), the front man invited the crowd to sing along to "Another Deadbeat Summer."

But as the song drew to a close, the crowd couldn't get enough. So Bobby decided to pull one more chorus out of them. And the result was as awesome as it sounds.

Now, clearly part of a very special evening, the spotlight turned to Bobby for the live debut of "Guilden Street." As he strapped back on his acoustic guitar, Gysin returned to the stage to play keys and contribute vocals. A minute or so into the tune, Bobby invited Friends in Low Places engineer Max Aharon up on stage to help with the voices as well. By song's end, six of the seven men on stage were singing, as the crowd eventually joined in to make it even bigger.

Gysin would stay on stage for the next two songs, as "Star-Crossed" kept the emotional high strong. Just before the solo hit, Jon loudly proclaimed, "This is my favorite part of the entire album!" as Bobby took the crowd through a journey of heartbreak and love lost. "Can't Stand Myself" made way for the last major emotional moment of the night.

Photo courtesy: Ethan Reiss

Bobby introduced "Self-Induced Exile," the final track on Friends in Low Places, with a confession. "These are probably the most emotional lyrics I've ever written." As he solemenly made his way through the song, the audience pulled out their cell phones to illuminate the packed room at New Jersey's most famous rock club. The band brought the song home as the lead man wailed his hardest, bringing a close to the album performance.

The setlist called for just one more song, but members of the audience clamored for "a rocker." Bobby turned to Jon and mouthed the words "Pink Cadillac," as both ran over to the other bandmates to call the audible. Midway through the song, Jon called to the crowd:

"Eddie Mac! Get up here!"

And with that, the frontman of Projex and father of the young band's drummer made his way to the stage, alongside Diego Allessandro of Lot 25. The performance reminded all those in attendance the importance of supporting local music, as everyone danced their way into the night.

Photo courtesy: Ethan Reiss

With that, Bobby and the band thanked the crowd for an amazing evening, and hit the planned encore, the title track off Delicate Fall From Grace. It was intense, it was somber, and it was appropriate for a performance that went more than two hours.

The band finished, and took the final bow for the crowd as Friends in Low Places concluded its thunderous debut. It felt as it should be...perfect.

The Wounded Lovers

A temporary break...but that's all it is!

There's been some changes here at Casa Mojo. We are going through a period of transition. The boys have not recorded for a while and there are still some songs that have yet to be released.

The use of the name "the Moriartys" is coming to an end. Ex Moriartys Spanish Tony has made it clear that he has retired permanently from music. Therefore the use of the Moriarty name no longer seems right. Fenwick and T-Bone are to continue to record. Rick Moriarty is ready to record and perform again having become a father in January. The once presumed deceased drummer McTavish has indicated that he is as dedicated and motivated as ever?

The boys whether they are performing or releasing fab new songs will be known as ;

SECRET HEART

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

"Friends in Low Places" officially released

Friends in Low Places, the first full-studio album by Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son, is now available for purchase and streaming through Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CD Baby and other avenues!

Streaming

The album can be streamed live via Bandcamp at this link.

About the album

Friends in Low Places gives two polarizing perspectives of the teenage upbringing. 

The first takes the listener back to the days of young adolescence, rebellious attitude and all. The world is against them, and with uprising and  pride, no obstacle is too big. Certain figures are perceived as larger than life, adding to the aura of the teenage youth.

The latter focuses on what some perceive to be the realities of becoming an adult. Being left as an outcast in a seemingly normal setting. Suffering the heartbreak of love forbidden by outside forces. Being your own worst enemy.

And while it may be clear where some stand on each side of the spectrum, others still have a story to be told.

CD release party

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son will hold a CD release party on Sunday, June 22 at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. to celebrate the album. Playing the show will be Brielle Liebman, Social Harvest, Check Your Morals, Tim Gysin, Creating Clementine and the headliner, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son.

More information on the show can be found here. Tickets are still available online.

Doors are at 3 p.m. ET.

Luis Ogando

New Song On The Music Player

A Lo-Fi, home studio version of Love has been added to the Music Player.

This is a live favourite of Luis' and will also be performed at the Big Friday Night event on 4th July at the George Spencer Academy, Nottingham.

This version was recoreded straight into Luis' aging Macbook using Garage Band, and then tidied up slightly, but it does give the song a nice, human edge.

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

Bobby Mahoney discusses "Friends in Low Places"

Just five days before the release of his first full-band studio album Friends in Low Places, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son frontman Bobby Mahoney chatted with the site about several topics related to the album. 

Below are some of the highlights.

Q: You released your first full album Delicate Fall From Grace as an acoustic album. Why is Friends in Low Places with the band?

BM: "I had been playing with Seventh Son since high school and we had done the EP, but I never really thought we reached our potential. A lot of the songs I had thought would do well in a full band form as opposed to a solo or singer-songwriter album. It was time to do a rock album with loud guitars, drums, bigger choruses. It was time for that."

Q: Where do these songs come from?

BM: "Well about half the album is some older stuff from Seventh Son that have come about since 2011. Those songs are very heavily influenced by riff rock, so that comes off. They're guitar heavy songs. We've been toning them live for the last three years or six months. The other songs, Jon [Alba] and I have written recently, we wrote most of them in one day, one or two sessions. Those came from more of a deeper place in my head emotionally, and I was able to connect with those songs a little more personally. I wrote some of them as solo songs, then we created full band arrangements." 

Q: You've said this album tells a story. What story does this album tell?

BM: "The album tells a story of looking back at the teenage years of high school from a perspective of before and after. It's more of an exaggerated look at teenage life, then goes through those years, then the end of the album looks back on those. It's kind of like an epilogue. It's like prologue, story, epilogue. I felt the songs have a central theme behind them of alienation, whether it's from people you were friends with or from yourself. I felt all the songs connected. We had some other songs we could have chosen for the album, but these connected on a more musical level."

Q: What's your favorite song off the album?

BM: "It's tough, some of the songs like 'Self-Induced Exile' are a really deep connection, so that's definitely up there. To play? Overall? I guess I'd have to say 'Scoundrels.' That song shows off the band in every way possible. That song, the lyrics, I think came across really great. The first half of the song is the perfect example of what Seventh Son is. It's got the cool riff that Jon came up with, and the song as a whole has some of the best lyrics I've ever written. Then it has a tearing solo in the middle, then it breaks down to just me and an electric guitar."

Q: What's the surprise song on the album that people won't expect?

BM: "I'd say either 'Danger Dan' or 'Guilden Street.' 'Danger Dan' is a funkier song, it grooves a little more than our other stuff. It's still a rock song, it rocks hard, but it has a little more of a groove, a little more of a Red Hot Chili Peppers feel to it. 'Guilden Street' is the only acoustic song on the album, but while it is an acoustic song and I wrote it as one, there's strings on it. There's multiple layers of vocal harmonies, which also came together in a really cool way, and I'm really happy with how those came out."

Q: You recently shot and put out a music video for the second single, "Another Deadbeat Summer." How did that come about?

BM: "We had a few different ideas with Zack [the director] about what we were going to do to portray the song. We were originally going to do a party, but then we wanted to do something at the beach and we thought the best way to portray a shitty summer would be the third wheel idea. We had a great time, and we shot some of it at The Saint, which we're very grateful for. The rest we shot at Point Pleasant, which was awesome. I think exactly what we were trying to portray came across, and I'm very proud of it." 

Q: Why now? What's the point in putting out a full band album now?

BM: "I want to get us heard. I always respect bands that could not only put out a good song, but a good album. I love hearing 'Oh, did you hear this band's new album?' It shows they could write more than a good song."

Q: What should the listeners take away from the album?

BM: "I want the audience to connect to it. I think with Delicate, people may have appreciated the songs, they may have connected to 'Delicate' or one or two of the songs on the album. But I want people to connect to the album, knowing the words at the shows. I want it to get us to the next level."

Q: How is Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son different from the original composition of the band?

BM: "I feel like I can be a little more free with the lyrics, get a little more emotional with them. When we first started Seventh Son, we wrote these rock songs that were fun but didn't really scratch the surface emotionally, like 'Highway Robbery.' And I think we're already further along. I also built up more of a solo following in places like Asbury Park and Canada, and it would be foolish not to include that. And I wanted to combine the solo stuff and the hard rock, Seventh Son stuff. And I think with this album, we accomplished that. We hit the emotional stuff, but at the same time, it rocks fucking hard."

Q: Any final thoughts on the album?

BM: "I'm extremely proud of it. I didn't know what to expect when we went in the studio with Max [the engineer]. Max did an amazing job. We could not be more proud of it. I think people should listen to this album. Because I think they'll connect to it. Whether it's a musical part, or a lyric, I think they'll connect to it."

Friends in Low Places will be released on June 22 via Bandcamp, iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon and hard copy. The band will grace The Stone Pony the same day for the official CD release party. Tickets can be purchased here.

Mark Mathews

You write a 'Wonderwall" then!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Are we enjoying the World Cup so far?! Exciting stuff at the same time as being cripplingly sad...for us English...and maybe the Spansih too!

Still, early doors so keep the faith and all that, eh?!

I've been a busy, busy boy, working on the new music video, getting gigs booked in (the summer gigs start proper from this wednesday (18th June) at The Library in Islington (Can't wait. Get involved!) and testing out new material in the Captials underground!

Love me busking!

It's especially good as football fever has hit the capital and everyone is in fine spirits (read - Drunk). I've had some odd encounters with folk and some fun times with people dancing and singing along.

Like I say, love me busking I do!!

Now I am normally questioned about my busking activites with the standard questions being:

How much money do you make?

None of your business

Are you not scared doing it?

Only by certain small factions of society who are a couple of snadwiches short of a picnic, but overal I love it.

I really do!

However, the other day I was asked if I ever play covers. I answered with a 'yes', although I prefer playing originals and try to keep a healthy balance between the two. This was followed by being asked if I ever played the Oasis hit song, Wonderwall. When I answered again with a, 'yes' they kind of screwed up their face and looked like they had been sucking off a lemon

Yes, I said sucking OFF

See, there is this thing about THAT song. It is like the scene from Waynes World where the sign stating "No Stairway to heaven" is pointed at in the music store.

Now, I myself (an Oasis fan, which is a dirty thing to say these days) am not a huge fan of the song. I think it is a bit of a dirge and is something I would never put on and listen to, let alone play on guitar out of choice. However, I am asked to play it all the time when busking and I do so because it makes people smile. People genuinely LOVE It. I am constantly seeing people brighten up, dance and sing along to that song. All ages, races and creeds join in.

Fact.

It is wonderful to see.

Now I draw the line at some cover songs. I will not for instance be playing the Rose Royce song, Carwash.

EVER!

But the fact remains that so many people know Wonderwall. So many people can sing all the words (especially when drunk!) and regardless of what you think of it, there is some magic when a 7 year old and a 70 year old knows the words to a song.

Isn't that what all us songwriters want?

I know I do!

I think it's pretty incredible and so amongst the London Lives and Hard Foot Blues, I will always have time to throw in a Wonderwall. I don't care what anyone thinks...and normally no one can think because they are too busy singing along anyway!

Just an aside though, London Lives makes the most money when I play it and has the biggest chance of making people dance, believe!

FORWARDS!!!

Annie Woode

New Single

That's what I believe is a new single about the truths of the gospel that I hold on to. I wrote it to remind myself about the reasons why I can be joyful every day. I look forward to the hope of eternal life, while still enjoying a full life here, knowing that God loves me unconditionally. I pray you do too. Stay in the love of Jesus.
