This is issue #11 for The Monthly Articles News column

Halloween may be over but here's a story anyway. One Halloween I was laying by the curb in a sheet and mask as a kid and a lady approached I lay still on the ground. The kid started towards me and said "that thing ain't real." As they came closer I started convulsing and flapping against the ground startling the lady who took off down the street leaving the kid behind. There's also a myth that I like to hand out dried shrimp skins to trick or treaters. So the kids will drop their candy by the door when they go... I improved my press stories. I estimate if Fence Field Park was a movie it would cost a lot to make and would last only an hour. Which reminds me. I put together a movie made from June to around October with never before seen music videos, live footage and more. But it won't be put out since it's a full hour and my fan base is too small to release any movies.

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!

Today's, Tune of the Week, is Stan Bush - The Touch!

I love the track for so many reasons - It reminds me of being a kid, it's SO eighties it hurts and it makes me feel good when I listen to it. Try listening to it and not posing with an air guitar...it's almost impossible, believe!

Back in the Game...Studio!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Lovely day for it huh?!

Did a bit of a dodgy gig last night. Seriously, it's one thing having the crowd talk through a set, but when a performer that has gone before you begins to be unbelvieably rude and disrespctful it is something else!

Sometimes, fellow performers can be the worst people of them all...and all he did was covers! Pah!

Anyway, such is life I guess and I think I will avoid anymore gigs there.

Good news though, I'll be getting back in the studio to demo some songs. 2015 is going to be chock full of recordings and releases so I want to work out what songs work, what songs will be on what EP etc etc. Can't wait to get back into the studio. The last time I was recording I had this haircut!

Oh yes, the old legoman haircut! The choice of a generation, believe!!

Cereal Killers

Brothers and Sisters!!

Welcome back! I hope this new daily blog is working out for you? Just some minute ramblings on a day to day occurence. Feel free to message me about anything as you followers and fans are what keep me doing what I am doing.

Anyway, did anyone notice the article yesterday about a new breakfast cafe opening up in Shoreditch? Essentially, two brothers are going to open a cafe that serves cereal and milk. Yep, the lows of the SHoreditch Hipsters no, no bounds. You will soon be able to go to a "Milky Spoon Cafe" (Just that fucking term makes me sick in the throat) and buy a bowl of cereal!

Unbeleivable!!

I can see it now - A bearded man, with a shaped and pruned moustache rides in on his fold up bike. He orders, in an ironic way, a bowl of Ricicles with "a splash" of Goats milk. He then sits there pontificating on the reasons why goats milk should be served at room temperature in order for the Ricicles to be enjoyed correctly.

And you know it's going to cost you about a fiver a bowl!

Over the years I've played various gigs in Shoreditch and seen the steady increase in Hipsters and their middle class, wanker-ness. I'm far from being someone that hates change, but I can not dig a society built on bull shit and narcisssim. 

I recently asked a friend how he thought it was that Shoreditch was now so dull and boring, because everyone who thinks they are different actually dresses and thinks the same, but Camden, regardless of it forever changing and adapting, still holds some danger. Some edginess. His retort was simple - Camden Town has historically had life living in it. Sure, there are the artists and the Hipsters that moved there, but the original working classes that have been around there still exist. They still work there, there are still the punks from back in the eighties. There are still the Goths from the ninties. There is a huge mish mash of people that continue to live side by side and so there is a melting pot of interest and culture. Shoreditch on the other hand is man made. It was a run down area. The aritsts moved in, then came the bankers and then the middle class hispters and before long, what was once reasnably exciting had flat lined into a race of one dimensinal people.

Sigh.

I play tonight in Camden Town at Proud Galleries, so come see what I am talking about when I say "Camden's still got it!"....Becasue I tell ya, it still has, believe!!

Back on the Merry-Go-Round

Brothers and Sisters!!

Top of the morning to you! And another one where the sun is shinning! Do I even need to go to Peru to chase the sun?! Sheeeessshhh!!

Anyhoo, I feel positively boyant today. I managed to set up my drums and piano in my little studio in the loft last night, had a little play and then fell asleep on the couch! I managed to get a full 8 hours kip for the first time in ages!

I guess them bods are right - Sleep is good for you!

When I woke up this morning I wrote another part to a new song I am working on. It is a little bit prog to be honest. Never thought I would be saying that sentence about one of my songs, but it certainly works as a song that progresses as it goes on. However, it's prog in the Gomez sort of way, not in the Yes sort of way! It's also a little love song, so it's all very beautiful and lovely!

I'm also rarring to get back on the merry-go-round of gigging, which happens tonight! I've been out the game for a few weeks so it'll be good to taste the metal of the microphone and hear the sound of the P.A pumping out the love of my life - my guitar!

If you're about in London town come to The Hideaway and I'll play you some tracks, believe!

Don't look down (at the bank balance)

Brothers and Sisters!

Good day to you all. I hope the halloween celebrations went well. I, like a lot of you, are feeling the pain of the excesses of the weekend. Although, I am trying to keep my head in the sand regarding the money I have spent!

The thought of looking at my bank account feels me with dread, especially as I am flying out to Peru in a matter of weeks and could really do with having some cash to spend whilst I'm out there. Still, until that time machine is completed I guess I'll just have to suck it up and maybe consider not going so overboard!

On other news,  afew cheeky gigs have been booked in before I fly out, so do please come down and have a sing song with me. It's actually been a couple of weeks since I gigged so I'm looking forward to doing them. Defintiley going to play some new stuff, believe!

Flat Pack Furniture

Brothers and Sisters!!

How was your Halloween?! It's all getting a bit out of control these days if you ask me. I'm not really one for dress up, so this is not really the season for me. I guess that seems a bit moody, but what you gonna do? I don't like wearing make up. Sue me. 

I have spent my day today heading across to the other side of London and picking up an electronic drum kit. I'm slowly adding to the mini studio I have and so now as well as the work I put into my piano playing I can now start to imrpove my drumming...well, as soon as I work out how to put the damn thing together! Seriously, at the moment it looks more like a robots knob than a drum kit. I'm no good at these flat pack furntiture type things! I am doing something very wrong, believe!!

3 drink hangover!

Brothers and Sisters!!

I hope I find you in fine fetal! I'm dealing with one of them '3 drink hangovers'. You know the type, you go out and have just a few drinks, keep it quite sensible because you got shit to do the next day and feel quite good about yourself for not going mental...

...and then you wake up feeling like you drunk a bottle of Vodka! The most annoying thing being that you may as well have gone mental and got hammered. 

Anyhoo, I struggle on! 

I've been making plans for the remainder of the year going into the new year and last night was no exception. Plans afoot people and I can share with you that the next single, Someone, will be released on December 15th and my EP will come out on February 16th 2015.

I won't give the title of the EP away just yet, (gotta keep some info secret for the time being, eh?) but believe it is on it's way and I had a brain wave for the artwork last night, where I strangely have a lot of my brain waves - on the DLR, believe!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Those of you who are my Facebook fans will know that each Friday I have a 'Tune of the week'. It could be a song I have heard that week, it could be a song I remember from my yoof (!) or even an act I have played on the same bill with, but each week I find a track I simply love.

As I've been writing a daily blog now, I've decided to move this weekly event from my Facebook page to be here on my website. Facebook fans will still get the link to it, but this way I can give a little more information about what the song means to me and why it has been chosen as tune of the week. 

So, without further ado the tune of the week today is: Mumm-ra, She's got you high

I love simplicity and catchiness in music, because it is the hardest thing to actually pull off, and this tune has both of these aspects in spades. From the second the track starts with that riff, it is instantly recognisable and from there it keeps on building and building into pop song perfection! Throw in the multi harmonies and vocals and you've got a beautiful 3minutes of music that never, ever fails to get boring. I love it!

This is certianly a song I wish I had written, believe!!

Addicted!

Brothers and Sisters!

What up?! I trust I find you all well?

I've had three coffees this morning and I am buzzing my tits off! I have one of them, "addictive personalities" see, where quite frankly having one thing, (E.G a cup of Joe), is simply not enough! 

I WANT MORE!!!

There are many issues that go with having such a personality. I mean, I should be very wary of smack and I hear this crack cocaine can be slightly moreish, but I believe that this trait has helped with my music.

When I first started playing guitar I became quickly obsessed and wanted to be playing all the time and I mean ALL the time. I used to hole up in my room, like a weirdo, for hours and hours at a time and avoided going out so as I could practice, write and pretend I was on the pyrimid stage of Glastonbury! 

This has again been happening recently. I am teaching myself how to play piano (properly). I have always flirted with tickling the ivories and added little piano parts to recordings I've done, but I am by no means a pianist. However, now I am doing what I did all those moons ago with the guitar. I hole myself up in my attic and sit there playing (badly) and pretending to be Elton John (only with hair, a lot younger and, I like to think , with a better sense of style). 

So, as long as I keep away from that heroin, I reckon this personality of mine could pay off again...now, off for another Coffee, believe!

Travelling through time

Brothers and Sisters!!

What's happening? Sorry to be so British and talk about the weather, BUT it's the 28th October and the sky is freaking blue and the sun is shinning! It's unheard of! And they say Global warming is a bad thing, pah!

I've been going through my old songs that I found (see yesterdays post) and boy does it take me back. It was a prolific time, but I won't lie to you, some of those songs are absolute stinkers!! Whatever you want to say about my lyrics these days, you have no idea! I also think there was a lot of weed being smoked back then, maaaaaannnnnnn!!

However, I did find one or two little gems. Granted they need re-working slightly, but I think they are something worth playing live and most definitely recording. It's funny finding these songs and almost travelling back in time and seeing where my mind was at all those moons ago. There is definitely a progression in my writing and you can see where I was trying to find my 'voice' so to speak. 

Anyway, it's been interesting, believe!

York Bound Again, Don't Know if I'm right or if I'm Wrong

Sunday 9th November see's the band with angelic frontman Tim Weatherhead back in the line-up for a Sunday afternoon gig at the fabulous Victoria Vaults, York. Band on 4:00-6:30 pm.

Looking forward to gigging again with Tim, as we love him really, in a perverse kind of muso chocolate fashion!

Changing of the guard

Brothers and Sisters!!

How you all doing? Those in the UK - Can you believe it's still not cold and rainy?! What the hell is going on...not that I am complaining of course!

I've been working out strategies for my next move. I am leaving my label and am going back to a much more successful DIY approach. I mean, when you are doing ALL of the work and a bunch of Charlatans take 50% of your meagre profits, well, it's a no brainer.

The third single I'll self release as I have done before and is booked in for a worldwide release date of 10th December. All the usual Cats wil stock it (Itunes, Amazon etc).

An EP will follow in the new year, before moving onto other singles and EP's. 2015 is going to be a big year for material - some free, some to pay for, but I want a to get a lot of my music out so get ready for some different stuff!

In actual fact when I went back to my Mums house this weekend I came across around 200 songs I'd written back in my 'Yoof'! I was certainly prolific! And I came across my very first guitar. The one in which I taught myself to play and began writing songs on. Without that little beast I would not be writing this now...awwwwwww!

So, there is a slight change of the guard and I will explain more about that as it finalises, but fret not, I will still be releasing tracks, I will still be performing live and I will still be writing nonsense like this...so, nothing essentially has really changed, believe!!

The Wounded Lovers

STOLEN CAR - RELEASED TODAY!

We are chuffed to anounce the release of the new Wounded Lovers tune "Stolen Car", and we feel confident that all Wounded Lovers thrill seekers will love it! It's a cracking Fenwick song, featuring an astonishing lead guitar contribution from T-Bone. 

As recently reported, there will be four new releases this side of Christmas, to make up for the barren summer where Fenwick and T-Bone went there seperate ways.

  

There has been a number of rumours regarding the absence of fresh Wounded Lovers material over the summer period, and now feels like the correct time to officially respond to them.  Here at Casa Mojo HQ, we were particularly irritated by stories curculating that once again the demon booze, or dreaded drugs had  somehow had an adverse impact on creativity.  Even worse was the rumour that Fenwick and T-Bone had fallen out with each other in sober surroundings! Nothing can be further from the truth! The boys just had a well deserved break, and are now chomping at the bit to write, record and release new Wounded Lovers material!

So there you have it..... 

Look out for the next release "Smoke and Mirrors"...

Oxjam Video Posted

Luis kicked off his Oxjam 2014 set at brand new venue the Creative Corner Cafe in fine style, with one of his old favourites, 'Love'.

Providing a mix of original and well-known classics, the crowd seemed very appreciative, with a couple of audience members accompanying him on the various percussion items that were lying about the cafe.

"It was great fun. Half way through Take It Easy I heard a shaker, then some wood-drumming and clapping. It's great when the audience join in - it shows that they are also havng a good time."

Performing classics and favourites from Paul Simon, George Ezra, The Eagles and a mash-up of Robbie Williams, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Rocky Horror Show, Luis also showcased some of his own material; Love, Take A Look, A Little Bit Like Kiss Me and Blow It All. The latter getting a very good reception.

"There was quite a cheer after Blow It All, which really made me smile, as this was the first time I'd sung the full song to such an audience. I got a few comments afterwards, too, which was really nice."

Not content with performing Blow It All at The Creative Corner Cafe, Luis also managed to slip it into Anteloup's set later on at The Star Inn.

"We put our set together for Anteloup, but decided to squeeze another number in. We'd left it a bit too late to get a workable version of our new material together, so Pat suggested I just do something acoustic. I think it broke the set up a bit and added a bit of dynamic, which worked well."

You can see a video of Luis' performance of Blow It All by clicking the 'Videos' link in the menu above.

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son to release "New Age Outlaws" music video Thursday

Four months after the release of the highly-popular music video for "Another Deadbeat Summer" off the debut full-band studio album Friends in Low Places, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son will release another video to promote the compilation.

"New Age Outlaws," originally released as the first single off the album, will debut its music video Thursday night. Directed and filmed by Zack Morrison, the piece will mark the second time the two entities have worked together on a music video.

"Once again, we had the chance to work with the great Zack Morrison," Mahoney said. "Zack is an extremely talented up-and-comer in the film industry. He graduated from Rutgers and is now at Columbia for graduate school for film. Not only does he produce excellent film work but he is also a passionate music lover. It is always great to work with him, as well as to see him enjoying our music at shows. He has helped us out a lot in the past year. I look forward to seeing all the great things he will accomplish."

The video was shot in 4K, also known as "super HD," with a RED Epic Cinema camera courtesy of Ideas United and Distinguished Filmmakers. It was filmed on Sept. 6, 2014 at The Court Tavern in New Brunswick, N.J. before a packed audience.

"This time around we went for a straight, no frills live video," Mahoney said. "I think it accentuates the rawness of 'New Age Outlaws.' It is arguably the hardest rocking song on the record, and we had a kick-ass time at the show filming. We don't have mosh pits at a lot of our shows, but one broke out while filming this video and it was an awesome vibe in the room and it gave the song the edginess it needed."

In addition to the video, the band will release preliminary dates for the winter leg of the Friends in Low Places Tour.

A second preview for the film can be found below.

Friends in Low Places is available via iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify and various other outlets.

Anteloup Storm Oxjam

Anteloup delivered a storming set at this year's Oxjam Beeston Takeover music festival. After having had their slot moved back, due to time issues with sister band Middle:6, the later 8.50pm start seemed to give the band more of a lift.

"It was great to go on a bit later this year," says frontman Luis. "The atmosphere was absolutely brilliant, and the crowd really got into what we were playing. The response to our opening number [Think Of Love] was mind-blowing, with the whoops and cheers really giving us a strong footing for the rest of the gig."

As the band have a such a varied genre of material, the set-list took a pop-to-rock route; starting with foot-tappers like Think Of Love and Woman In The Blue Shoes, through We've All Been There and finishing with Frozen Turkey and Jodie.

"Frozen Turkey was possibly my favourite number of the gig. What started as a simple American Rock song some years ago has grown into a great band song, with an intro and massive 32-bar outro featuring Pete's monster guitar solo. It was a real crowd pleaser and we should have a video up on the site soon."

Thanks to the Oxjam response, Anteloup are now planning a few free gigs in the run-up to Christmas, with proceeds going to Oxfam and other charities. For up-to-date band and gig information sign up to the mailing list and follow the band on Twitter.

Bobby Mahoney

Behind the Song: "Guilden Street"

The seventh track on Friends in Low Places is a sharp curve from the rest of the album. 

"Guilden Street" starts as a somber acoustic reflection piece, and explodes into something much more. It has quickly become a fan-favorite, but is seldom played live.

Describe the origins of "Guilden Street," the place and song.

BM: "Guilden Street is a street in New Brunswick, N.J. that some friends used to have a house on. This house was notorious for insane nights of teenage debachary."

JA: "Guilden Street started as an acoustic demo that Bobby put on YouTube. He felt strongly about it for the album, and while I was heistant at first, we figured we'd just lay it down and see what we could do with it."

How was the song conceived?

BM: "The song was written based off a series of events that took place at this house, and how I felt out of place. Seeing my friends turning into different people over the years, or even the course of one night, is really what the song is about. Not fitting in with your friends as they change and grow up, and how you have less and less in common is part of life - it happens. It all hit me at this house party one night, and that is what inspired the song. I also never really understood the whole 'partying' thing that most people my age do. I just never saw the appeal to drinking or doing drugs. Not that I am some annoying 'Straight Edge' advocate that judges people, or a D.A.R.E. officer, but I just never really got into that stuff. But to each their own."

JA: "I wasn't there, but everything seems to be pretty literal in the song. You can follow along the storyline fairly easily, as its written to reflect how the night unfolds. It fits really well following up 'Deadbeat' because things are really beginning to crash and burn for the main character."

Describe the recording process.

BM: "The acoustic guitar and lead vocals were recorded by me in the studio, and then we brought in Joe Larkin to sing some harmonies with me to make it sound huge. He did a great job and I think his vocals really make the studio version of the song come to life and stand out. Max then did the snare drum part, and I wrote the string quartet part and added it in later."

JA: "We've mentioned throughout all of these how much Bobby and I argued over elements of the album. 'Guilden Street' was one of my biggest contentions. I believed in the song, but not the original presentation. The song was laid down vocally and acoustically, and that was originally to be it. I had initially conceived a full band version of the song, with it being intended to close the album in the same exact way 'Self-Induced Exile' does. But we soon learned that version of the song would not work, and I pushed to add more elements to what had been recorded. We conceived the snare to resemble a drummer boy march, as the characters, as Bobby insinuates, are marching to their downfall. The other voices was Bobby's call, and the strings fell on both."

What are some of your favorite elements of the song?

BM: "Well like I said, Joe's vocals really tie it all together. I am also proud of the string parts, and the lyrics. These are some of my most honest lyrics I have ever written."

JA: "The harmonies definitely are awesome. There's a lot going on, which is cool. I think once the snare hits, the song really explodes, which creates an awesome sonic moment on the album."

Are you surprised the song has gotten over the way it has?

BM: "Yeah, a lot of people tell me that they connected with this song the most on the album, which makes me happy. I fought tooth and nail to keep this song on the record, and I'm happy people appreciate it for what I intended it to be."

JA: "Very, and that's not a bad thing. I didn't think it would be a song people would connect to initially, but I think once we added the extra elements, it really becomes a standout track. And now, ironically, it's one of my favorites."

Do you have plans to keep the song around?

BM: "Yeah I think we have some cool ways to work the band in a little more with this one."

JA: "Stay tuned, Canada."

What are the struggles with playing the song live?

BM: "Most of the shows we play are hard rock/punk shows that don't have a lot of room for ballad type songs. People who are there to rock out, often times tune out the softer songs, or go to the bathroom or get a drink. But that is why I want to change up the arrangement a bit and give it a little more bite."

JA: "We've gotten experimental with it. Our live show is where we earn our money (jokes), so when we have to slow things down, it becomes a little harder to elongate a show. But the song is fun, and there are people who really love this song."

Any final thoughts?

BM: "It is a song about sticking to your guns. I am extremely proud of the song. Don't go to the bathroom when we play it."

JA: "I mean, if you gotta piss..."

Anteloup

Oxjam 2014 Update

Anteloup have had their timeslot of 8.50pm confirmed for this year's Oxjam Beeston Takeover.

This is the first time the band have been involved with Oxjam, and they are really excited about it, as frontman Luis Ogando explains:

"We've been together some years now, but missed last year's Oxjam due to me being in Spain at the time. To get such a good slot this year is nothing short of fantastic. The whole band are really fired up about it and we really want to go and play our hearts out."

"Oxjam is an ideal event for new, original bands, because it is all about the music - whatever the style or genre - people want to listen to live music and enjoy themselves. And that's what we're aiming for - a great night of music and the chance to show our wares."

"We've been really quiet over the last 6 months or so, going back over our material, re-writing parts, adding parts, dropping songs, adding new songs... It's been a real busy time, but we've got a great set that we're really proud of now, so I hope people like it."

"The 'genre-span' is quite wide too, with bouncy pop-like songs (one with a nice reggae bounce), to jumpy punk-like songs, to head-nodding, toe-tapping songs, to different rock approaches. We're sure there'll be a song for everyone in the set."

So, to catch Anteloup's inaugral Oxjam gig, head along to The Star Inn in Beeston for 8.50pm on Saturday 18th October. 

Luis Ogando

Luis At Oxjam 2014

Luis will be taking part in this year's Oxjam Beeston Takeover, performing at brand new venue The Creative Corner.

This is the third time Luis has been involved with Oxjam, but the first that he has been signed up for a solo set.

"I'm really looking forward to this. Doing the band sets with local covers band Middle:6 is great fun, but I've been doing more and more solo stuff, so it seemed a good idea to slot an extra gig in."

"I've got a great selection of my own material, including the new EP title-track 'Blow It All', as well as some of my favourite, upbeat covers, including Free Falling, Budapest and Me & Julio Down By The Schoolyard."

"I decided to mix old and new with the covers, so you may get to hear Rude by Magic if I feel a bit bouncy on the day!"

The set starts at 12:50 and The Creative Corner can be found along the Chilwell High Road, opposite Cator Lane.
