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.

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!!!

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.

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son - "Another Deadbeat Summer" (Official Music Video)

With just one week remaining until the Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son CD release party for Friends in Low Places, the band decided to drop a gift for everyone in anticipation of the big day!

On Sunday, the band released its first music video, this for "Another Deadbeat Summer," the sixth track on the album. The video sees Bobby as a third wheel for a "romantic" date on the Point Pleasant boardwalk, and the antics that ensue.

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

Show Report - Bridgewater Eagles, 6/8/14

Photo Courtsey Eddie McIntosh

Tattoos. Leather. Bikers.

Sounds like the typical venue for a Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son show. Right?

Especially when it's just acoustic.

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son took to the "Steel Crusaders - Jersey Crew" meet and greet on Sunday afternoon in Bridgewater, N.J. for an impromptu performance. The headliner for the show, the Projex Band, serenaded the crowd with some classic rock favorites along with some country tracks.

Bobby and Jon first joined the band on Bruce Springsteen's "Radio Nowhere," adding some depth to the "I just want to hear some rhythm" sections of the track. But they also had acoustic guitars in hand.

At halftime, Projex lead singer Eddie Mac, father of Seventh Son's James Mac, gave the stage to the trio of Mahoney, Alba and the young Mac for an unexpected multi-song set. With just two acoustic guitars and drums, the guys kicked things off with the newest single off Friends in Low Places, "Another Deadbeat Summer."

Photo Courtesy Eddie McIntosh

Afterwards, Bobby called for a rare cover: "Rockin' in the Free World" by Neil Young. The song went over well with the crowd, with some in the audience pumping their fists at the chorus.

From there, it would be a Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son trio to close things out, with "Danger Dan" grooving straight into "Star-Crossed." Bobby then looked back at Mac and Alba and motioned for "Can't Stand Myself," the now seldolmly-played selection off the new album.

With that, Projex took back the stage, and continued to bring the house down in the blistering sun.

Setlist

1. Another Deadbeat Summer

2. Rockin' in the Free World (cover)

3. Danger Dan

4. Star-Crossed

5. Can't Stand Myself

This is issue #006 for The Monthly Articles news column.

Before "Scrap Rabbit" I did recordings under the moniker "Wazobod" in the early 2000's. The unusual project was a series of strange comical tapes . None of the material has yet surfaced. My new music video "Energy Storm" was inspired by a tornado that hit while I was stuck on the road in 2011. Trees came down all around. Thus the story in the song unfolds in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvynIqRcdcI

The whole of the album was written (at Bear Shank Lodge) at Oundle and it was a very snowy winter. Everyone else went away for Christmas but I didn't cos I had nowhere to go. I was left at Oundle by myself.

NICE 'N' SLEAZY
Sleazy was written about our experiences with the Amsterdam Hells Angels in the autumn of '77. One of the Finchley Boys rode my Triumph over to Amsterdam and I went with the band. The Amsterdam Angels treated us very well, too well, and we ended up at their Chapter house, which had been donated by the Government to keep them out of town. After the Paradiso gig, I remember Jet going back to their club house on the back of a Harley. I went with the President of the Angels in his huge, American car and we got stopped by the Police. He gave me a large bag of white powder to look after while he got out of the car and went and pissed on the police car's front wheel! Back at their compound, we shot guns at a prison which was being built. Quite scary!

OUTSIDE TOKYO
Outside Tokyo was completely Hugh, even the waltz music. Normally, all the waltzes were mine but I don't recall writing the music.

SWEDEN (ALL QUIET ON THE EASTERN FRONT)
Again, my music and Hugh's lyrics. We'd had a few set to's in Sweden by then with the Raggare (Swedish 50s influenced youth movement who drove old American cars) and had already been escorted out of the country under armed guard, for our own safety. 

HEY! (RISE OF THE ROBOTS)
By then, we'd heard Devo and we really thought they were on to something musically. I remember talking to Lora Logic from X Ray Spex (who guested on sax on the track) and telling her to feel free to play whatever she wanted on it. We wanted that musical freedom that Devo had on this track. 

TOILER ON THE SEA
I was left to my own devices over that Christmas and that's how Toiler came about. Toiler was one of my epicy instrumental things. I had the whole piece, all the parts of it and, as the others were away, I actually started rehearsing it with Dennis from the Finchleys on drums. I remember going into the rehearsal studio there and trying to get him to play the drums on it. 

When Hugh got back after Christmas, he had a bit of a bad holiday. He'd gone with a Japanese girl to Morocco and he added his very recent story to my music when he came back after the break.

CURFEW
The lyrics are mine. We were going through a Cold War spell at the time and it was just me imagining how it would be if the Russians actually made it through to the West. There was a general fear that the Cold War was going to escalate into an invasion. We'd gone to Germany and realised that, at the time, Germany was completely inthralled with the Americans. They had lost their strength and had gone very pacifist. There are references to the 'American dream'. So, the song was imagining what would happen if it all kicked off...

Musically, we thought we'd be clever as we added one 5/4 bar into the song. 

THREATENED
Threatened was another of my lyrics with Hugh's music. One night I went out with some people and they had opinions about everything, they were all too opinionated. I thought if it doesn't threaten you, what's the point in having a fucking opinion about something? Basically that was the idea behind the song.

DO YOU WANNA?
My music and Hugh's lyrics and Dave's amazing vocals. I don't remember him explaining the meaning of the lyrics to me at the time. Definitely my riff though.

DEATH AND NIGHT AND BLOOD (YUKIO)
Death and Night and Blood was completely me, the title comes from a quote from Yukio Mishima. He was full of contradictions, he was homosexual but was married with kids, he was a highly rated writer but he wanted to make a statement with his body, which he did by becoming a body builder and taking up karate and kendo. He was also slightly misogynistic and leaning towards the fascistic. 

He also had his own private army The Shield Society which enabled him to get access to a General's office at army headquarters and to incite the Japanese 'Self Defence Force' (as they weren't allowed to be called an 'army') into action. He barricaded himself in the office and then addressed the gathered troops but his speech was drowned out by the sound of helicopters and the soldiers jeering. He went back inside and commited suicide by Hari Kari.

At the time, (Julie) Burchill and (Tony) Parsons wrote a book called The Boy Looked At Johnny and in it they described me as a 'Nazi, homosexual thug'! That's unfair, I'm not a thug!!! They were part of the Socialist Workers and, in their minds, if you weren't with them, you're a fascist. That was typical of them really... 

IN THE SHADOWS
In The Shadows started as a jam, which was originally twice as long as the finished version. It was a piece of improvisation went on for about 12 or 15 minutes! I spent about 12 hours with Martin Rushent in the studio editing it down. I also wanted to add a dub reggae type feel so there were delays and cutting in and out added on to it. 

We actually improvised the lyrics which were about paranoia and fear. We wanted it to sound like Captain Beefheart which was why we sang in low voices. It was originally released as the b side of No More Heroes and was a taster for what was coming next. We felt it fitted the whole album concept of Black and White as it felt dark and 'late at night' so we included it on the album too. I liked it as it was something new, a real departure for us... 

ENOUGH TIME
This was about the same paranoia, about how we felt about the times that we were living in, the zeitgeist. In fact, the whole of Black and White was quite paranoic. It was also fueled by the fact that we'd had all that success the year before, and we were now getting slated by the press. That fed into our general consciousness, it was us against the world! 

The morse code solo at the end reads 'SOS. This is planet Earth. We are fucked. Please advise'. We thought we'd be clever and include morse code to send that message out...

We played it live on the tour at the time, but I'm not sure how managed to do it. We tried rehearsing it for the Weekendinblack convention in 2011 but we just couldn't get it together. It's one of the very few things that I don't know how we originally constructed it... 

WALK ON BY

We didn't write it! Walk On By was a leftover from the days when we had to play cover versions. We'd play our own songs but, before people started throwing bottles, we throw something in that they knew! The solo section became a vehicle where we could extend our musicianship and it got longer and longer. Everyone played a solo in it and that became a trademark in some of our other songs in the future, like Genetix, where the four of us are playing totally different things. The instrumental section was a nod to Light My Fire by The Doors, that was the template that we used for the solo piece. 

TITS
We used Tits as our weapon when something went wrong or against us! We'd circle the wagons and give people what they don't want. The song was taking the piss out of everything and it worked for us on occasion. We used it against the Finchleys when they tried intimidating us at the Torrington that first time. We weren't been forced off stage like they'd done with other bands. We also did it at the Roundhouse when we supported Patti Smith the first time. Old school sabotage...

MEAN TO ME
A basic bit of rock and roll because we were just a rock and roll band originally. We had no pretentions and it's an unpretentious rock and roll song with misogynistic lyrics from Hugh. We did a version with Celia Gollin. Dai Davies came up with the idea us working with Celia and to lend our kudos and musicianship to this girl he was trying to push. He wanted me to write songs with her, one of which featured Wilko (Johnson) too.. 

OLD CODGER
This was a blues type song which came about because we were pleasantly surprised having just met George Melly. We'd met him making an Arena programme for BBC2 where he had described us as the 'inheritors of Dadaism'. Hugh wrote the lyrics for him specifically for him to sing, with references to his self-confessed sexuality of previous years. During the recording at TW studios, with Lew Lewis (harmonica player), he also surprised us getting out a small tin and rolling spliffs! We didn't expect a bloke of his generation or ilk to be like that. It was all very chummy and we kept in touch with him for a few years... 

SHUT UP
An inoffensive little song with my lyrics about a girl. We wanted to do the fastest song we could ever do. Punk by numbers, tongue in cheek and a bit throwaway really...

SOCIAL SECS (released as WASTING TIME)
The title is a play on words, with Hugh's lyrics about social secretaries at colleges who wouldn't book us. It also relates to the well documented Rock Goes To College incident which was considered commercial suicide at the time. The track went on to become Yellowcake UF6 although the riff also resurfaced on Do The European as I was working on Euroman Cometh at the time.

Come on England!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Well, England just played the last friendly with Uruguay and the rehersals are now over. Let's just hope all that practice has made them play well. 

It's much like the gig I did on Saturday to promote the release of, London Lives...well, sort of!

I mean, myself and my fantastic band, The One Ts, spent time practicing for the upcoming gig. It was a make or break gig as it is the first of, hopefully, many gigs we play together and being the first single release there was a lot of anticipation. People believed in us enough to come down and watcha nd support us. People wanted us to do well. And so when we came out onto that stage we knew we had to put on a good show for the fans. And that is what we all believe we did. The time spent practicing made us play well. Exceptionally well and though there are some things to smooth out, overall it was great to play the tracks with a full band, as they are menat to be heard...

Or that analagy could all be a load of balls and just me trying to link my music to the World cup.

Who knows?!!

Alas, my biggest love and thanks goes to you folks that came down and supported us. It was a top night and may there be many more like it. We plan to do a full band gig once a month so watch this space for gig updates.

I may have had a few after the show!

Thanks to everyone for watching the music video as well. If you haven't already check it here:

Larry Perez Joins BMB as New Lead Guitar Player

Hey Friends,

We are excited to announce the addition of Larry Perez to the Brandon McDermott Band.  Larry will be taking over the reigns as the new lead guitar player for BMB and is an extremely talented guitar player who brings an exciting new style of guitar playing to the band.  Larry is not only a great guitar player, but he is also a heck of a nice guy and we are proud to have him.  He also has a degree in meteorology so he always knows if it is going to rain at our shows, which is always good to know.  Larry is taking over the lead guitar duties from our good friend Kevin Anderson, who is reducing his role in BMB to focus on his own project….which I have heard a little bit of, and it is going to be fantastic.  Kevin will still be joining us for some shows from time to time, and we are glad we get to keep him around a little bit.  So come out and help us welcome Larry to the band because we know you will enjoy listening to him as much as we do.  Ohh feel free to ask him about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, he can tell you all about it.
