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’ -
Knuckle Dragger are playing alongside &U&I (ex Blakfish ) + In Oceans + | Waheela (whla) @ THE NEWBRIDGE PROJECT [ 18 New Bridge Street Newcastle ] on the 13th July. Not only that, but they have a full list of gigs to play this year, so your bound to catch them somewhere, they unfortunately had to pull out of a recent Norwich gig due to Shaun being in ill health, however he’s full recovered and ready for the Newcastle gig, in around two weeks time.
WAKD Blank Sessions : Mucker
‘The Knuckle Dragger lads came to Blank to track their first two EPs, and over the course of these we became fond friends and fans of the guitar-bass-drums trio. It’s not hard to do so though, as their numerous tour videos and the like online go to show; they’ve always got an upbeat and charismatic attitude surrounding their music, and their musicianship itself is impressive to say the least.
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.
FIRSTLY, I WOULD LIKE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT ‘COMPARISON FORD’ from the forthcoming album will be available via iTunes on the 26th March 2012.
