Here is a stream of the next release on my label Text Records by a band from London called Rocketnumbernine. It will be released on September 20th on 12" and digital.
Rocketnumbernine toured the UK with me earlier this year and they were playing this track every night. Each night the performances were getting more and more intense and blowing mine and the crowds minds. By the end of the tour I knew we had to go into the studio and get a great recording made of Matthew and Toby. We recorded all analogue to get the sound right and if you buy this on vinyl you will have a recording that has never touched a computer, which I think is the way it needs to be done sometimes. I’ve done a remix for the b-side… more of a club version.
I discovered Rocketnumbernine through Steve Reid who was great friends with the drummer from the band, Tom Page, and you can hear Steve’s influence and spirit in this music without doubt. Steve passed away just a couple of weeks before we made this recording and we have dedicated it to his memory.
Rocketnumbernine will be touring with me in the UK again this November.
I have produced a new album by Sunburned Hand of the Man called "A" that is about to be released on Ecstatic Peace. They have put together a beautiful vinyl package with artwork by Raymond Pettibon and it comes with a poster and a digital download. The tracklist is:
1. The Return Of A & C 2. Now Lift The Outer Finger (For Newcastle) 3. Loft At Sea 4. A Red Rag To A Bull 5. Apollo Wind 6. The Books Of Ability 7. Anger Icon 8. A Sticky Wicket 9. Action Figure 10. Radish Vs. Beet 11. Alpha, Beta, Adam
The music was recorded in a studio in the woods in Vermont during the summer of 2008 and then I worked on edits of the recordings back home in London.
