So the new album is pretty much done. While I work out what the heck to do with it, here’s a wee live vid of one of its songs :) x
Don’t say I don’t ever treat you… …I mean to me that is…about this. If someones neglecting you please feel free to act.
Over the past few days the internet has been ignited in fervent political discourse over Russell Brand’s article and interview on revolution. Whilst the call to action was clear but the model nebulous, I thought it nevertheless raised some very important questions that aren’t currently being answered. This led to me doing one of those ‘of the moment’ songs, which also led to it being a bit scrappy around the edges, so apologies in advance.x
Eton boys will eat you up for lunch
that you’ll pay for
a ballot passed a palimpsest
a torch, a rose
it’s all the same to me
Damocles sits atop his throne
whilst devils twine his string
the middle meets the bottom in the dirt
yeah we’re grateful, for our lot
Hoodwinked the reticent are lost
in their chambers
governance forfeit from the yore
the rot that blights today
we’re not lying down
we’re not lying down
to take this
Quick cover of one of my fave 78s that sadly warped and snapped in the sun. ‘Poinciana’, by Geraldo and his Orchestra. That’s the version I have/had anyway…*stares sadly into middle distance*
Merry Monday all : ) The wonderful doublet of James Shrig and Lucy Walker recorded me singing in a woods the other day. They made it all look very pretty, in spite of chavs trying to throw sticks at us and a hundred dogs wondering what the hell I was doing.x
Lovely new album by my good friend and bandmate Tom Morris. I played a wee bit of drums and double bass on this, he sang some words and guitared and has emotions.
Singles now out and free as a bird…or as ‘pay what you want’ as a bird.x
Video for my new single ‘Vixen’, directed by James Shrig. Out monday, Pre-order available here -> http://music.weikie.com/album/vixen
Working on stuff. Here’s a lovely album by The Oh Hellos in a meantime. Anthemic sibling niceties and crowd claps.
Quick snapshot from video for my next single ‘Vixen’
Did a couple of Photoshoots with good friend Jinnwoo recently- really love how bleak they’ve come out. They also let you know I’m still alive. Working on a double sided single type thing at the moment to further compound the rumour I’m still alive.
So I also play/write in 'Her Name is Calla', and this is our latest single. Hope you like.x
