BLANCMANGE HIT THE ROAD FOR EXTENSIVE UK DATES THIS AUTUMN, TOURING UPCOMING ALBUM: ‘PRIVATE VIEW, OUT 30 SEPT, VIA LONDON RECORDS

LISTEN TO FEATURED TRACK: ‘TAKE ME'

BLANCMANGE are charting an extensive run of UK dates this Autumn.

Embarking on a run of 29 dates around the country, the tour will follow the release of their highly anticipated new album: ‘Private View' (out 30 September). Full details can be found below.

Marking a return to London Records, almost 40 years since the label released the band's debut; the release is preceded by the track ‘Take Me'.

STREAM ‘TAKE ME' ON ALL SERVICES HERE
 

Of ‘Take Me', Neil Arthur explains:

"As usual I'm playing with double meanings and domestic references. Can you take me, in terms of the unpredictable aspects of a personality, or can you literally take me to our favourite place by the sea? And also how much does someone have to "take" before a relationship breaks down? How many times can your partner be expected to accept repeated mistakes? Where is the tipping point?" 

Across the album, there's a deft marriage of futuristic electronic sounds, Arthur's unmistakable vocal hooks, and songs that veer from buoyant and joyful to dark and brooding. Benge returns as a key collaborator, and David Rhodes (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Scott Walker) returns as the guitarist, having previously performed with the band on 1982's debut Happy Families (as well as several other Blancmange albums.)

In their post-punk early days, Blancmange made tape loops and experimental sounds with kitchen utensils, before developing into one of the definitive chart-topping British electronic pop acts. Since reforming in 2011 (Luscombe had to leave shortly after for health reasons) Arthur has harnessed a duality of experimentation and seamless pop melody to release a staggering 10 albums in the last decade. "I don't know whether I'm on a roll but I feel something in me has been released," he says. "I used to hold back and I didn't trust myself. While I'm still full of self-doubt I'm now quite comfortable with it. This is it. We've only got one time around the block, so make the most of it."

The past is used as a trigger to create new ideas and build fresh momentum, not as somewhere to linger. "A lot of people are frightened of the future and are quite happy to have a repeat of something that was done before," he says. "But it's just not for me. Looking forward you've got a hell of a world to try and navigate through at the moment. We're all moving forward - so we've got to try and find some answers." 

Private View is a record that manages to capture an artist who is potently in the moment when it comes to creating new work, while also being able to draw on 40 years' worth of knowledge, experience and built-in intuition. "I'm really lucky to be able to make the music completely on my own terms," Arthur says. "Within myself there are no limits, there's a massive palette inside and I will try anything."  

Private View tracklisting

  1. What's Your Name
  2. Some Times These
  3. Reduced Voltage
  4. Here We Go Go
  5. Chairs
  6. Who Am I
  7. Everything Is Connected
  8. I Tried To Be You
  9. Private View
  10. Take Me

 

An extensive UK tour throughout October, November and December follows a recent performance for Grace Jones' Meltdown.

Across the tour, Blancmange will be joined by a number of stellar support acts including Rodney Cromwell, Bernholz, Oblong, Alice Hubble and Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire / Wrangler).

Since 2005, Beans on Toast has written simple songs about complicated subjects. Tackling the big issues of the day but doing so with his feet firmly on the ground, he's become a people's champ of the modern folk scene and amassed a huge back catalogue of songs in the process. 

An unrepentant optimist whose songs celebrate all that is wonderful about the human spirit, his live shows are similarly uplifting and have taken him from SOLD OUT headline shows in the UK to the stages of major international festivals across the globe. 
 

Releasing his latest studio album in 2021, ‘Survival of the Friendliest', the record proved a hit with fans and critics alike, with RNR Magazine championing the record as "rather special… The lyrics shimmer with Beans' trademark of truth and humour", whereas Louder Than War hailed it as "the perfect antidote to re-energise us all".

Already working on the follow-up, which will be out in December as usual, stay-tuned for further news from Beans on Toast in the coming weeks…

GUN RELEASE BIGGEST HIT WITH 2022 SUMMER REWORK: "WORD UP" (FEAT. THE SISTERHOOD)

STREAM ON ALL SERVICES HERE || LISTEN ON YOUTUBE HERE

TAKEN FROM LEGACY DEFINING NEW ALBUM: ‘THE CALTON SONGS' OUT 14 OCTOBER, VIA CHERRY RED RECORDS

+ UK DATES FROM THIS AUGUST

"So tell all the boys and girls, Tell your brother, your sister, And mama too…" - WORD UP

28 July, Glaswegian rockers GUN release a brand new version of their seminal single: "Word Up".

It's the latest track to be cut from their upcoming album: ‘The Calton Songs' (out 14 October, via Cherry Red Records) and arrives ahead of intimate acoustic shows around the UK this August.  

Originally covered by GUN in 1994, this massive track saw the band win an MTV Europe Music Award for Best Cover and featured on their Top 5 album ‘Swagger'. The song itself is, of course, a retooled version of the evergreen Cameo hit from 1986.

Reimagined and revived by GUN for the Summer of 2022, the new version of "Word Up" is a totally different beast to the one that the fans know so well, boosted by the vocal talents of Beverley Skeete & The Sisterhood [Noel Gallagher, The Chemical Brothers, Mick Jagger] and phenomenal Brass provided by The Selecter. The band are describing it as the "Word Up Summer Jam" and it has all the raw, radiant energy its title would allude to. 

Taken from upcoming album, ‘The Calton Songs', the record will be released on Cherry Red Records on 14 October 2022; available on Cherry Red-coloured vinyl, CD, cassette and digital. ‘The Calton Songs' is a full-blooded celebration of the band's career so far with enthusiastic and brand new acoustic reinterpretations of the songs that made their name. These classics are bolstered by recent single ‘Backstreet Brothers', a new and fully electric track that basks in the joys of both lives and good times shared, and brings the GUN story up to date, 

As Jools Gizzi says of the album:
"When the pandemic hit we realised that it was the perfect time to try and counteract the bleakness that was all around. It felt like we couldn't write anything, or of course tour. Out of that darkness came a desire to completely rework these songs that we know the fans love, and bring a different, stripped down vibe".

Whilst Dante Gizzi adds:
"It's ironic that those feelings of negativity led to something so positive, a celebration of our career up to now".

The Calton Songs' takes its name from the area of Glasgow where the band grew up, and where they still write their music. These new versions of great songs are cut through with un-ironic nostalgia but this is a band with an eye on the horizon for what's to come. ‘Taking On The World' announced the band to a global audience in 1989 and their next album ‘Gallus' just marked its 30th anniversary. ‘The Calton Songs' is the latest milestone and follows-up ‘Favourite Pleasures' from 2017 which made the top 15, making it their biggest album in almost a quarter of a century, since ‘Swagger'.

With ‘The Calton Songs' now ready, initial work on a potential new studio album started and live dates in, GUN are truly firing once more. They remain in the Top 50 modern hard rock artists in the world according to industry data specialists, Chartmetric, with top 20 albums and singles. They have toured with The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and Iron Maiden; this is a band with plenty to shout about. GUN in 2022 features Dante Gizzi [lead vocals], Giuliano ‘Jools' Gizzi [guitar], Paul McManus [drums], Andy Carr [bass] and Tommy Gentry [guitar].

From Glasgow to the world was always the mentality, and their desire to entertain remains undimmed and on ‘The Calton Songs'; these ‘Backstreet Brothers' remain serious contenders.

*****

Around the release of ‘The Calton Songs', the band will be hitting the road for a number of festivals and gigs. With a storming acoustic tour around Scotland planned this Summer, a series of fully fledged electric gigs will follow throughout November and December. All UK dates so far are as follows:

GUN CELEBRATE LEGACY WITH NEW ALBUM: 'CALTON SONGS'

OUT 14 OCTOBER, VIA CHERRY RED RECORDS
 

WATCH NEW SINGLE "BACKSTREET BROTHERS" VIDEO HERE || STREAM ON ALL SERVICES HERE
 

+ ANNOUNCE NEW UK DATES 

Glaswegian rockers GUN are back with a brand new album, ‘Calton Songs' released on Cherry Red Records on 14 October 2022.  


The new album will be available on Cherry Red-coloured vinyl, CD, cassette and digital. ‘Calton Songs' is a full-blooded celebration of the band's career so far with enthusiastic and brand new acoustic reinterpretations of the songs that made their name and took GUN to the four corners of the world. 

These retooled classics are bolstered by the addition of the single ‘Backstreet Brothers' which was released 18 May. This is a new and fully electric track that basks in the simple joys of both lives and good times shared, but also brings the GUN story up to date.

‘Calton Songs' is an album that takes its name from the area of Glasgow where the band grew up, and where they still write their music. This record is about celebrating the road that GUN have taken to reach this point, these new versions of great songs are cut through with un-ironic nostalgia but this is a band with an eye on the horizon for what's to come, not what's over their shoulder in the past. ‘Taking On The World' announced the band to a global audience in 1989 and their next album ‘Gallus' just marked its 30th anniversary. ‘Calton Songs' is the latest milestone on this journey and follows-up ‘Favourite Pleasures' from 2017 which made the top 15, making it their biggest album in almost a quarter of a century, since 1994's ‘Swagger'.

As Jools Gizzi says, "When the pandemic hit we realised that it was the perfect time to try and counteract the bleakness that was all around. It felt like we couldn't write anything, or of course tour. Out of that darkness came a desire to completely rework these songs that we know the fans love, and bring a different, stripped down vibe. ‘Better Days' was the first one to get the treatment, and that really brought all our enthusiasm back and relit the creative fires". Dante Gizzi added, "It's ironic that those feelings of negativity led to something so positive, a celebration of our career up to now. It turned into something great, and ‘Backstreet Brothers' really sums up that unalloyed enthusiasm that has been brought back into the heart of the band".

The band hit the road this year with festivals and gigs announced in Barcelona (18th May), Madrid (19th May), Segovia (20th May), Villava (21st May) and a storming return to Scotland with an acoustic tour and full electric gigs throughout November and December. Full UK dates so far are as follows:

The Undertones + Hugh Conwell Live At The HMV Empire

News

THE UNDERTONES PLUS SPECIAL GUEST HUGH CORNWELL ANNOUNCE COVENTRY SHOW - SATURDAY 4TH JUNE

TICKETS HERE

THE UNDERTONES have confirmed a live show at Coventry's HMV Empire on Saturday 4th June 2022 with support from Hugh Cornwell.

The Undertones emerged from Derry in 1976, the result of five friends (John O'Neill, Damian O'Neill, Fergal Sharkey, Billy Doherty and Michael Bradley) learning how to play basic rock and roll.

Even by the standards of that decade Derry was not the rock and roll capital of anywhere. With no live bands worth watching, they learned by listening to mail order records, reading one of the few copies of NME that made it to Derry but most of all from listening to John Peel's wonderful show on BBC Radio One. Practicing in their bedrooms eventually led to the band recording John O'Neill's ‘Teenage Kicks' in 1978 on Terri Hooley's Good Vibrations label in Belfast. The legendary DJ John Peel received a copy and liked it so much he played it twice in a row on his radio show.

The Undertones signed with Sire Records and ‘Teenage Kicks' was re-released, resulting in the band's first appearance on Top Of The Pops. Over the next five years, John O Neill, crafted further pop gems such as `Here Comes The Summer`, ‘Jimmy Jimmy`, `You've Got My Number (Why Don't You Use It)' and ‘Wednesday Week' whilst Damian O'Neill and Michael Bradley contributed ‘My Perfect Cousin. They also recorded four highly acclaimed LPs. Indeed, they almost enjoyed the life of professional musicians. In 1983 Feargal Sharkey left the band to pursue a solo career and the remaining members decided to call it a day. The Undertones were to remain silent for the next sixteen years.

In 1999 The Undertones reconvened, without Fergal Sharkey, to once again perform their two-minute, three and a half chord songs to a new generation of fans in Derry. Fellow Derryman Paul McLoone replaced Sharkey on vocals and his vocal prowess and electric onstage presence soon convinced any doubters that he was more than capable of doing the job.

After much consideration the band released an LP of new songs called `Get What You Need', which was critically acclaimed by Q magazine, Uncut, Rolling Stone and Hot Press. Songs like ‘Thrill Me', ‘I Need Your Love The Way It Used To Be' and ‘Everything But You' showed that the art of writing short, sharp songs had not been lost over the previous two decades.

In 2003 ‘Thrill Me' was released as a limited edition 7" vinyl single and found its way to John Peel's turntable. He introduced it on his show commenting, "And these are words I thought I would never be saying on radio again, a new single from The Undertones". He liked it so much he played it twice, just as he did with ‘Teenage Kicks' in 1978.

The band marked Record Store Day 2013 with a 7" vinyl only release, recorded in the famous Toe Rag studio in London. A return to their punk roots, 'Much Too Late' sold out the 1,000 copies before the day was out.

In 2016 the Band released vinyl remasters of their first two LPs; ‘The Undertones – The Undertones' and ‘The Undertones – Hypnotised' along with a 7" vinyl remix of the 1979 single ‘Get Over You'. Remixed by Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine/Primal Scream). Michael Bradley also published his book Teenage Kicks: My Life As An Undertone'.

2018 marked the 40th Anniversary of the release of their most influential and famous song, 'Teenage Kicks'. On 21st April for Record Store Day 2018 the band released a Vinyl Singles Box Set containing the 13 x 7" original Undertones singles from the classic early period: 1978-1983.

Live The Undertones present a glorious set of classic tracks taken from what are considered by many fans and critics to be some of the best punk albums of all time, adding to them a whole bucketful of their iconic guitar pop hits & anthems.

Their show in Coventry this June will see the band joined by Hugh Cornwell. ‘Golden Brown', ‘Strange Little Girl', ‘Always the Sun', ‘Peaches', ‘No More Heroes', ‘Nice & Sleazy.'.. sound familiar? All big hits, all great songs, all written and sung by Hugh Cornwell — the songwriter behind The Stranglers. Expect a mix of prime solo songs and iconic Stranglers hits, sung and played by the man himself and his band.
