Since we're playing on Friday 7th October at the Menagerie as part of the Holylands Arts Festival I thought I'd better pull the finger out and give you more new tracks from the still forthcoming 'Britain's Biggest Killer' album with which to revise (especially you EPK if yer doin our sound;-)
The first one is called "The Utopians", yes, "The Utopians", like "Heroes", and it explains why we changed our name from The Uterus Women.
That's Andy Simpson on triangle, and me on mellotron...
The second one is called 'To Betray Her' and is quite frankly more miserable than Throbbing Gristle @ Joy Division's cat's funeral. Or sthg.
The third is a viscous/viscious attack on The Kings of Leon & indeed the guy from Jet's parent's red setter, and all other cock-rock beachcombers, and its called SPUNKROCK. It features m'pal Kat on riotgrrl drums- RAWK!!!
On this stuff I've been using my Sequential Circuits Pro-One and a wee Korg Micro-Preset analogue synth from 1977 that I rescued off ebay. I've also made some use of Reason's Subtractor & Malstrom softsynths (especially on 'To Betray Her'). Most of the keyboard sounds come from Mellotron and Chamberlin samples, though.
Just added another mp3 to the list at the top there- this is the last preview from the album before it's, as it were, "released", and it's called SPUNKROCK.
Do not listen to this song if you work for the RSPCA/PDSA please.
Good stuff. I notice that the end of cut with a kitchen knife bears a striking resemblance to the end of the Airwolf theme tune. Whether it's intentional or just my love for big shiny helicopters coming thru - good work there!
