The Leap Home

Brothers and Sisters, what the hell is up?!

I trust all is well. I hope so, it's been so long it's hard to know...my bad.

But it is because I have been jetting here there and everywhere playing gigs left right and centre and putting right what once went wrong and hoping that the next leap, will be the leap...oh hold on, that's 90's TV show "Quantum Leap" not my life. I always do that!

But the gigs have been keeping me busy. Tunbridge Wells Forum has a special place in my heart and I even got to play my home town of Maidstone. Keeping it about as real as you can. Loads of fun. Personally, I think I have been playing some of the best shows I have ever played. It feels like I'm in a groove and on a roll and so thanks to all that have come and seen me and given me praise, because i promise you it fuels the fire.

I've also been getting pretty prolific of late and writing tons of new material. There are certainly two new songs that I absolutely love to play and am thinking of chucking them into my sets coming up.

Talking of which I am at the "Dig the City" Festival in Manchester this weekend playing on both Saturday and Sunday. I've somehow managed to miss Manchester on my tours since coming back to the UK (I know, Bad me!) so I am really, really looking forward to getting up North and playing for you all. Then there are a string of London shows whilst I sort out some studio work and get on with recording some tracks.

I have also confirmed I'll be playing the Oxjam Festival (Clapham) this year, (Oct 26th, save the date), which is awesome news and something I can't wait for.

Loads happeing behind the scenes as well, but as usual it's best to keep it hush hush till I know for certain the old fan fare can be brought out and we can have a bit of a knees up, believe!

Forwards!!

August Shows + More!

Hey All,

We had a couple of fantastic shows these past two weeks.  Our 5th annual BBQ on the lawn show at Rancho Nicasio sold out for the first time!  Thank you all who came out to spend the afternoon with us.  Last weekend we were back in the East Bay performing for a packed crowd at the Alameda Park Street Art & Wine Faire.  It's been a great summer so far but we're just getting started!... 

The fun continues in August as we have one of our busiest months of the year with seven shows coming up.  Starting this Friday, 8/2 we return to the Terra Linda Northgate Mall in Marin for their summer Concerts Under the Oak series from 6 to 8pm.   It's FREE and All Ages are welcome.

On Saturday 8/3, we return to one of our original stomping grounds: Dan's Bar in Walnut Creek.   Always a wild n' crazy rock n' roll fest in this joint.  We’ll be playing all night so it's a good place to hear us bust out some Petty rarities.   Drinks will be flowing and the dance floor will be moving…JOIN US!

Please see below for our upcoming show schedule and check our website for future shows and other information about the band.
 
"Yeah and she looks so right, she is all I need tonight…"
 
Cheers,

It's been pretty quiet around here lately, so here's something - a new single! Demagolka's own Hotline Miami soundtrack, "Bull Kull" is an edited and differently mixed version of "MoTeK/Nateshimura" from the band's latest studio album, "Haestrom".

We tested it in the game, replacing one of the existing tracks and it fit perfectly!

The Alien Nation

"The Veil" Inspired by Trayvon Martin

This veil that I wear is heavy! I wear it daily and it gets cumbersome because I constantly have to place it upon my head even on the days I want to breathe the fresh air.  My white male counterparts don’t have to wear a veil he can walk freely. Not me, a black male! Our skin is a burden to society and we have to see the world through this veil. Live two separate lives in one body so that we can survive the world.  

W.E.B Dubois wrote in his book The Soul of Black Folk that, “One ever feels his twoness, -- an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”

If the murders of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis and Darius Simmons, who are all under the age of 19, their twoness led to their deaths.  Their deaths reveals how America truly thinks of black males.  It is more than just a white and black issue but a societal issue; black males are forced to live two lives.  

Their two lives are between the images protrayed in the media and their actual lives.  Many would want to believe most African American males are full of mischief, deceit, anger, and lies.  While many are trying hard to be fathers, lawyers, doctors, and a role model of their community.  The constant fight of trying to be a man is often distracted by the color of his skin.  The deaths of four African American young men, who were innocently shot, shows that we still have to live in two worlds that conflict with each other.

The reality of it all is that no black man is a threat and the images are false.  “I am not a Threat!” shirt is to show the world that black men want to live in one world.  Where they can live, breathe, eat, laugh and love freely without being seen as a menace. Available now in the store. CLICK HERE

 

Let the world know that your are not a threat.

A week is a long time

Brothers and Sisters,

Well, they say a week is a long time and by jove they might be onto something! A few interesting things and people have popped up recently, that are affecting the course of action I was on. I've always been happy to change if it benefits the overal cause and so I am heeding the advice I have been given and making some changes.

What this means is the EP and Music Video are to be put on the back burner for now. I'm gutted in many ways because not only was I excited to get it out for all to see and hear, but I was working with some amazing and talented people and I hate letting folk down.

Alas, it is by no means over, but more a new chapter unfolding. In actual fact instead of the music just being released MORE is to be recorded and MORE exicitng projects will come of this.

So, watch this space and await further instructions for loads of new tunes!

I'd just like to thank all of those involved with the artwork (below, and you can also check it out in my photos page) and the Music video. The video was going to be mega and everyone was so professional and keen for it and so it's a real shame it has had to be put on ice. However, it will get up and running again at some point, so if you're still up for it the door is always open for you, believe!

Forwards!! Modern Romance EP ArtWork

GettingYour music onto Radio

Getting your music onto radio is a clearly defined target for most artists when they are preparing for the release of a single or EP. We all know that the competition for airtime is tough but are there things that you can do to give your new release a better chance of hitting the airwaves?
 

In this article we speak to 2 professionals who seek promotion to radio from different perspectives. Mark Muggeridge owns and runs Evil Genius Media, a full service music marketing company that promotes music to radio on behalf of their clients – a service known as radio plugging; and James Bursey, the producer of Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show which receives hundreds of tracks each week for consideration to be included in the programme. 
 

"When I am promoting a new artist to radio for the first time I like to start by sending the track to either regional radio or to shows that play new artists at around 6-8 weeks prior to release." says Mark Muggeridge. "I am trying to get my first one or two spins of the track along with a quote from the DJ before I go into the main part of my promotion to radio. Once I’ve got these, then I’m revising my press release to include a mention of these and I’m onto going out wider with the track and the new press release.

Although digital is great it’s also important to have physical CDs and a printed press release. A lot of radio shows will only accept a CD promo. Can you imagine having to download hundreds of MP3s every week just to listen to them once? It’s a nightmare for some radio staff and it’s really still just so much simpler for them to organise physical CDs when they are working out what to play each week. This said It’s also important to know which shows prefer a CD and which shows want digital. The Unsigned Guide is great for that kind of information."
 

"Unsigned artists often have to do a lot for themselves and this is a burden than slows things down, but by running a smaller campaign and only sending your music to those shows that you are confident play new music by new artists you can help keep your costs down and chew up less of your time than sending a hundred promos." says Muggeridge.  "Also when I am writing the press release to go to shows like John Kennedy or Tom Robinson I’m careful not to overstate what an artist has achieved to date. I see a lot of press releases from unsigned artists that try to convince me that their last EP ‘was a massive break-through…’ or their last single was ‘hugely supported’ by a particular radio station when in fact they only received one play. People who work in radio will read between the lines; everyone has to start somewhere and clearly stating that you had a play from or were ‘supported’ by a particular show helps us all to know where you are up to in developing your audience and how we can help you further."
 

James Bursey is the producer of Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1. "When you’re first sending tracks to us at Radio 1 it will take us a little time to get to know you. We sometimes talk in terms of a new artists’ journey." 

That journey should begin at a local level via the BBC Introducing uploader.
 "This is a great way to get our attention at BBC Radio. It’s surprising how many artists don’t use this path to get music to us when we are always listening to tracks that have been uploaded. Once you’ve been played on your local Introducing Show then your next target should be the shows that are on air from midnight to 4am, from there the shows that are on air from 10pm to midnight." explains Bursey. "In terms of how to send us music, using a plugger is a great idea as they are a trusted source for us to find new music. However if you want to DIY sending your music to radio then send us tracks via a streaming service, such as SoundCloud so we can have a listen; then also give us a download link so that if we like the music we can grab the MP3 or WAV file. The important thing here is that for a first listen we don’t want to download or sign in to anything. It has to be click and play."
 

 

Mark Muggeridge and James Bursey both give presentations as part of the Guest Presenter Programme at The Music Business School MMBE course in London. The MMBE (Managing a Music Business Enterprise ) is a new accredited qualification that offers participants a fast-track course of study to get them up and running in the music business. The guest speaker programme brings a unique roster of active music business executives into contact with the students via small group presentations. These sessions give students a chance to ask direct questions and connect with leading players from across the music business spectrum.

Trials and Tribulations

Brothers and Sisters, what's gwanning?!

Well July has been fraught with trials and tribulations: Being messed around by "professionals", having some more drama with the EP and trying to pull together this Music Video...(Mark takes a deep breath)...it'll all work out in the end, but I want it all worked out NOW!!!

So, those that saw my tweet will know, the EP is likely to be put back again! It's driving me mad to be honest and just want the thing done and dusted like it should have been months ago. The latest missed deadline was last week when it should have been mastered but the situation is looking even more dire and ANOTHER studio is going to have to be booked and more of the same work done AGAIN...

Releasing this EP cannot come soon enough!

Still, onwards and upwards.

Whilst we wait even longer and in case it never sees the light of day, here's the track listing for shits and giggles:

1. If Only For Today

2. Suicide Tuesday

3. Bones

4. The Girl

5. Idle Wish

6. What You Do

You've probably heard most of them now if you've come to any recent gigs and a few of them have a "The Couch Session" video that you can check out. I did also record a song called "Lucky" and "She's The World (And She Spins For Me)...I don't know if they will ever surface!!!

The music video has had it's own problems and issues, mainly the use of Victoria Park costing the equivelent of the Queens Jewels (Oooh Errrrrrr Missus!). So, that has been pushed back by a week to the 2nd and 3rd of August, which because of the above EP issues is not a huge problem for me!

If you happen to be free and want to get involved on the Saturday (3rd August) drop me a line as you're more than welcome. It will still be in London somewhere, just need to work out where.

Still this heat wave has made for a fun month none the less, so I'll push on with getting everything back on the straight and narrow and before long there'll be an EP and Music Video to watch and I won't even remember this struggle, believe!

Forwards!!!!

Hey Honey Bees & Refugees,

We hope you all are enjoying a wonderful summer season.  We have been doing so ourselves taking a few weeks off from the gig trail.

We head back into the great wide open with some fun outdoor shows coming up.  Starting this Sunday, 7/21 we perform our 5th Annual "BBQ on the Lawn" show at Rancho Nicasio.  This is truly one of our biggest and best shows of the year!  Enjoy great BBQ and custom summer drinks while relaxing in a beautiful outdoor setting and listening to all of your favorite Petty tunes.  This show is perfect for the whole family!  Joining us will be the fabulous Austin DeLone filling in on keys for Mike Emerson (who is on the road in Europe with Carlene Carter).  Audie is the “real deal” and we are honored to have him sit in with us again.
 
The following weekend we return to Park Street Art & Wine Faire in Alameda on Saturday, 7/27.  We close out the festival on the Encinal Stage from 3:30-5:30PM.
 
Look forward to seeing you all SOON!

here it is - Cut Loose and Live - Play Loud!

 

I've always loved live bootleg albums, when I was a kid I used to buy them on cassette at head shops. Usually printed on the back was "Fan club release only, not for sale" - but there they were, right beside the rock t-shirts and rolling papers, usually for around 12 bucks. 

I had a bunch of them, with tacky labeling and questionable sound. Almost always right under the track listing was printed  "PLAY LOUD." Which of course, you did.

They always seemed really cool to me, and a lot of times really different from the records that the songs were from. I was fascinated by how the bands would approach stuff live. Maybe they'd strip it down to bare bones, or speed it up. If they were from before the album was released you'd get different lyrics sometimes. Or a lot of swearing and drunken shenanigans. 

Most of the bootlegs I'd had have long since been stolen or got eaten up in various shitty cassette players. Wish I still had them though.  

Also - one of the ballsiest albums in Rock and Roll is the MC5 putting out that kick ass live album as their debut. If somehow you've never heard it go quick and look it up!

ANYWAY - all my teenage bootleg love led me to always want to release live stuff. And, the tech has caught up to me- clubs are starting to have digital rigs now for live sound, which means in the right place, getting live recordings is really easy. It's 2013 and you can bootleg yourself!

So- here's ours. Listening back I kinda wish I had started with " I'm Christian and these are the Hangovers- Kick out the jams motherfuckers!" 

PLAY LOUD.
