The VICtory Sessions: Volume III

This project is dedicated to our leader, friend and brother, Expo (Victor Pontes-Macedo), who lost his 8 month battle with cancer on April 7, 2012. RIP Comrade...

To make a donation to this project follow this link to our PayPal donations page: tinyurl.com/VICtorySessionsDonation

"The VICtory Sessions" are a collection of works that encompass everything that we have written and recorded…and never released. Volume III is extra special as it's a rare live recording of an Expo solo show from The Middle East Upstairs, a venue in Cambridge MA that helped both Expo and Audible Mainframe off the ground when we first started playing shows in the Boston area in the early 2000's. Each installment of The VICtory Sessions will be released as short EP's broken up into separate collectable volumes. As each volume is initially released they will be exclusively available for download through our website/soundcloud page. AMF has set up a PayPal Donations account and ask everyone to “pay what you want” for the EPs, as all money collected will contribute to the creation of the official VICtory charity.

The purpose of this project is to keep Expo's legacy alive through all the music we have created together that no one has had a chance to hear. This project will also be a token of our appreciation to everyone who has supported our movement throughout the years... we will be VICtorious...

Promo and PR

Akua Kamau

It certainly has been a while since we last posted any news. Well, where do we begin? PR, Marketing and Promotions. We are still trying to finalise these very similar but distinct activities. Our music is not hiphop, its not reggae it is very distinct and our Marketing and Promotions has got to be finely tuned unless we are willing to spend needlessly. One PR Executive told us that our music is not singularly aural, it is also cerebral. When one reads the liner notes for each song on our website and listens to the music, a who new interpretation comes into view. Hence our current issues. We are considering a world package but we are to make a decision as to whether this is the best way to invest our funds. The cost is naturally very high, but then, couldn't we benefit just about the same by going for a smaller more focussed target market? In the interim we are still conducting Skype meeting with executives from across the world. This has to end soon in order to the campaign to begin.

The Monthly Articles

This is issue #001 for The Monthly Articles news column.

Welcome to the first ever Monthly Articles column. I'm sure you were hoping for a story like how an onion would fall on somebodies head. First plant a tree and if it grows onions you have one messed up tree. Same logic would be if you planted garbage in your soil and eventually you'd grow a garbage can tree or a circle of chaos instead of life you'd have garbage onions growing out of a tree with newspapers, banana peelings, & candy wrappers sticking to the branches.

Every Letter revisited

Happy New Year to you.I decided to revamp one of the songs I did on my initial demo album as I really found the words encouraging. I hope you will as well. I've labelled it as Every Letter II on the music player. May it encourage you on difficult days as much as it encouraged me. The lyrics are below and are losely based on Habakkuk 3:17 - 19

Every Letter 

Every letter every page

Every minute and every age

Each temptation and every care

Every person everywhere 

Is written on the hand

Of the one who made the land

 

Every trial and every fear

Every burden he will share

Of the ones that he has called

To be a part of his great fold

I know who holds the threads

And I know who paints the picture

I know he knows my name

And the purpose he has planned

 

To make me part of his great kingdom

Create me perfect in his way

And though the fig tree may not blossom

I’ll put my trust in him each day

Hey All,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We had an amazing time on New Years Eve playing a sold out show in Mill Valley.  It was a great way to end a fantastic year for us.

THIS Friday we play our first show of 2014 at one of our favorite venues: HopMonk Tavern in Sebastopol.  We've always had amazing shows in 'The Abbey'.  It's a great room to hear live music and the adjoining restaurant serves delicious food and fine brews.  Our friends and special guests The Grain will get the evening started with their funky rock and roll jams.  We expect a full house so grab your tickets in advance now HERE.

COMING UP:

Two Nights!  "An Evening with Petty Theft" at the Town Hall Theatre in Lafayette on Friday, 1/31 & Saturday, 2/1  That's right, a two-night stand at this intimate venue.  Each night, we will be mixing up the sets and playing different songs.  For each performance they will be giving away a different commemorative poster.  So come to one or both shows and get your fill of Tom Petty's amazing catalog of songs.  These shows are both expected to sell out in advance so don't wait…Grab your tickets in advance now HERE.

Thank you for the good times

Brothers and Sisters!!

This will be my last post for the year, as I am to hybernate till 2014 begins (read - Hybernate essentially means: drink heavily and eat loads!) so, like a speech at an awards ceremony:

"I just want to thank those who have made this all possible!"

Seriously, it has been such an amazing year with so many highs and I have all you lot to thank.

Considering I was not back proper in Gods green country of the UK till April, I managaed to tot up 40 gigs across the country! Most were great some were average and others were, well quite frankly horrendous!

However, they have all shaped and helped me on this Indie-Pop journey of mine. Last nights (Sunday 22nd) at Proud Galleries, was the perfect way to end the gigs as it was truly one of my favourites. And who could forget the insane, stage invasions at the New Cross Inn, all those moons ago?!

It is gigs like these that make this path I am treading so worth while. So, I want to thank everyone that has made it out to one of my shows this year. Your support, love and commitment to the cause is something I really do appreciate and I hope to see you at many more as they get bigger and bigger!

On a similar tip to the live shows, I have to thank the great city of London and in particular the folk in the London Underground. Since getting back to this fair land I re-applied and recived my busking license and have been found underground, singing my little heart out for a good portion of the year.

And the response has been phenomenal. 

London, your generosity has been second to none. Your beautiful, lovely comments have warmed my heart and this stereotype of Londoners being miserable, robotic bastards who don't raise a smile is so far from the truth it hurts. I have been to many, many cities around the world and I can honestly say, hand on heart, there is no city like the mighty L.D.N. We are the most diverse, multi-cultural place on the planet and I absolutely love you more than I love Jaffa Cakes and Christ knows I love them Jaffa Cakes!

Some of you are aware of the Song For you Charity I am a part of: http://songforyou.org/about1/ 

It is something I am really passionate about and something I really believe in and I want to thank the Charity for allowing me to be a part of their cause. Good on any of you that have taken notice and helped out in whatever way you have (Sharing tweets, letting others know about it, donating etc). Please if you are to do anything, keep this up.

Recording wise it has been a strange one and I want to thank you all for your patience! Before the deal with Animal Farm to release the three singles, it feels like I spent a lot of time recording and re-recording tracks for the ill-fated "Modern Romance" EP and I kept the carrot dangling in front of your very pretty faces.

You are very pretty you know.

Things went as far as pre-production for a music video and the artwork (excellent job by the wonderful Martin Hobby) being completed! Everything was ready to go...

...except the music!

Yes, from one Engineer to the next (think I managed 4 Engineers and 3 studios!), no one could quite do the job I expected and nothing was ever good enough to be released. Months went by and eventually the idea was put on ice and then Animal Farm came along and I finally got to record some proper stuff. So yeah, things worked out in the end but it was a long drawn out process!

Still, next year will be a very exciting time with the release of three singles that I personally think are top!

Some tracks from the "Modern Romance" sessions, however are being played around with by someone who knows what he is doing (!) and I am slowly making them available on Youtube: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtIgHKfXpOA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fXXeY_3Pbc

Which brings me nicely onto my youtube channel. Thank you for all your views and shares and such. The Youtube channel has gone from a few videos to 28! Some have more views than others, of course, but the views and subscriptions continue to go in the right direction so love and respect for that and please do carry on doing so!

And you little Social media monsters have stormed my Twitter and Facebook and a lot of you have downloaded my tracks from Itunes (Link below!) which is just lovely.

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/artist/mark-mathews/id284383025

A bit of breaking news also is that I will be working with dance label, Panache Records next year and be releasing some tracks and doing some gigs with them too...I know!

As I always say, you've just got to believe and this is especially excting as it is within a genre that is new for me to work in!

Awesome!

Anyway, let me summarise all this because I am going on a bit now and there are drinks to be drunk and presents to be unwrapped: I am so grateful for all the love, support and belief that you have shown me over the past year. I am doing something I love, I am living my dream and you have played a huge part in this. Whether it has been buying my music, coming to a gig, watching a youtube video or simply telling me how much you enjoy my music, you have played a part in my success and I am so thankful for that, believe!

So, I wish you a VERY Merry Christmas. You have all been very good this year in my books so I think you deserve everything you wish for. And here is to a friggin' amazing New Year! Bring on 2014!!!

Forwards!!!!!!

Despoilers Christmas Message (Drivel)

Another enjoyable and entertaining night at yet another new venue. Thank you to the Red Lion, Shadwell.

 The band is signing off 2013 now, for a period of rest and practice. Is that a paradox?

It’s been a great year, in which the band has gone through a major transformation and finishes the year on a solid foundation to really rock in 2014.

Established now in both the Leeds and York music scenes and with a shed load of great gigs booked, 2014 should be a really fun year.

Last but not least we want to thank everybody that have supported us in 2013, particularly mentions to Colin and Scooby whose friendly faces have popped up far from home turf on many, many occasions throughout the year.

A very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to your all.

Another fun night at G&L

t was a frigid night in the city of Chicago, But it wasn't enough to keep Beta Dogs and a room full of friends, family, and neighbors from bringing a little heat to the G&L Tavern on Chicago's north side. Never ones to play things  by the book, Beta Dogs played for nearly 3 1/2 hours over two sets which covered a wide range of music, including songs from deep in the band's back catalog. Highlights included Brian digging down for acoustic versions of his tune "Half-Assed Man" and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", Joe taking on the Allman Brothers' "Blue Sky", and a reworking of Steve's "Hard Living", that changed a typically 31/2 minute tune into an epic 10 minute jam, to open the night's proceedings. The band seems to be coming together in real time as harmonies, arrangements and solos spring up on the fly. It's been interesting and fun. The crowds seem to be loving it too, so right now things are looking good & we can't wait for next!

O2 Academy & The Greystones = SMASHED!!

O2 Academy

We rolled into the O2 Academy on Friday 22nd November to support 'The Sherlock’s ' EP release & 'SOLD OUT' gig not really knowing what to expect. The Sherlock's are big fish on the local Indie scene and we couldn't be sure how receptive their fans might be to our bass heavy riff-rock band; make no bones about it, it felt like we were gate crashing a drunken teenage house party, but we thought 'what the hell' in for a penny, in for a pound!!

The Sherlock’s are without doubt one of the best young Indie bands in the region and they self publicise themselves as good as anyone else, this was a gig we'd be foolish to turn down albeit we are going in very different directions musically - this mattered not and our nervousness about not fitting in on the night turned out to be ill founded.

Their following is something else and they got behind all the bands that played that night; they were almost in hysterics when The Sherlock’s took to the stage - chanting their name, singing along and bouncing to their tunes - they certainly know how to party. These are exciting times for The Sherlock’s and from what we saw it seems these young lads have the world at their feet.

Both we and 'The Kavaliers' brought a fair wedge of our own fans and everyone seemed to mingle, enjoy the music and have a good time. The Kavaliers displayed some serious attitude and musical ability - in fact all the bands played dead tight sets and it turned out to be a TOP NIGHT with some great young bands.

The Greystones (For Tinyteeth Presents)

We'd been looking forward to this one for a while - playing for ex-Little Man Tate front man Jon Windle, now the co-owner of up and coming record label 'Tinyteeth Records', and supporting a cracking new touring band, Classic Rockers 'Cage the Gods'!!

First up were a brilliant young Rock band called 'The Verals' - we'd heard good things about these guys just from being around the local scene - they displayed maturity way beyond their years and had a real stage presence along with some brilliant material - it's pretty scary how talented these youngsters are, remember the name people.

We'd hoped originally to play a 9 song set but had to strip this down to 7 songs due to time constraints - though we did debut one of our recently finished songs called 'Baying for Blood'. Unfortunately the mic effects needed to enhance this song didn't quite work and do the song justice as the sound guy struggled to work the effect levels without getting major feedback. Other than that, as ever, we blasted through our set which is becoming more and more powerful and received some good feedback from fans. As you would expect from a band that recently supported 'Tracer' and 'The Answer' Cage the Gods were different class and put on a real show - top guys too.

All in all another great night and some good networking done - thanks to Jon Windle (top bloke), Brett for the great advice & Sean Wells for coming down and taking these awesome pictures.
