We’ve got sad news to pass along this evening as graphic artist Storm Thorgerson has passed away. The news was confirmed by English journalist and songwriter Polly Samson, who’s also David Gilmour’s wife. Thorgerson designed countless album covers including Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Phish’s Slip Stitch and Pass, Umphrey’s McGee’s Safety In Numbers and The Mars Volta’s Frances The Mute, and of course YOURCODENAMEIS:MILO ‘Ignoto’ and ‘Rapt Dept’ -
Featuring haunting vocals from Linda Harrison, this track is set to cement Bleach Blood’s reputation as a must-catch act in 2013. The track’s infectiously catchy chorus and atmospheric verses recall the angular, jerky of stylings of Post-Punk as well as the more commercial strains of the likes of Two Door Cinema Club. Born out of a bunch of songs written in a bedroom somewhere in the vibrant warehousing district of London’s Manor House comes Bleach Blood. This is ex King Blue, Jamie Jazz’s compiled love of 70’s (post) punk, dance, electronica and pop music.
Since arriving in the UK, Luke and Steve from Brisbane added Paul Mullen to their line up and have hit the studio and created an outrageous arsenal of tracks with Cooper Temple Clause cohort Tom Bellamy. Paul is doing a range of very exciting projects at the moment, Horsefight being a major one of those. This is there latest release ‘Friends Apart’ – Share it at will!
We introduce you to Paul’s latest project and encourage you to buy this EP instantly.
Born out of a bunch of songs written a bedroom somewhere in the vibrant warehousing district of London’s Manor House comes Bleach Blood. Along with the thundering beats of Invisible Frank, Charlie Elliot synthed up bass lines and touring guitarist Paul Mullen‘s math psych guitars, expect honest songs about love, loss, escapism, friendship and whatever else falls out of their collective heads.
Paul has recently been jamming with London based ‘Horsefight’ and if I’m honest. I can’t get a fucking enough of them. I’m unaware as to whether the join is permanent or whether Paul is just playing a few gigs with them, as they are usually and still described as a two piece, consisting of Luke Dunell and Steve Canter both from Australia.
You can check them out below, via the stuff I’ve embedded, and the links below that. ENJOY.
Paul Mullen’s not so new outfit ‘Losers’ consisting of Paul, Tom Bellamy ( Cooper Temple Clause ) & Eddy Temple Morris ( Oceansize ) have announced a Secret Garden Party warm up show at 93 Feet East in London on the 11th July. Support TBA. The track ‘Turn Around’ ( due to be the next single ) is currently being remixed by DJ SHADOW.
So, as we posted Losers played KOKO in London on the 27th April. What an awesome gig! We found this amazing snippet video on YouTube for you to enjoy. An amazing gig, make sure you see these guys ASAP.
I asked Paul, Adam, Justin, Shaun & Ross to put together a playlist of songs they’re either listening to at the moment, liked for a while, love, or just recommend. I’ve then compiled them into a Spotify Playlist for you all. Enjoy. ( Unfortunately I couldn’t get a playlist from Justin, when I do. I’ll post it.
