May 23rd, 2012

Last week I learnt that my music (the entire catalogue, by implication) is apparently reminiscent of mindless 80’s thrash metal. I like this idea. Bilbao Syndrome will cover The Knack’s My Sharona in the not-too-distant future, as this track is indicative of much of the ‘mindless’ music to come out of the aforementioned genre.

In the meantime, I’ll be playing a solo concert at The Venue, Leeds tomorrow –  Thursday 24th May. For those planning to attend, I hope that you will be able to embrace the influence of the 1980’s implicit within the music. Much of the programme will focus on the atmosphere explored in Montauk Variations, released on The Leaf Label earlier this year. As a little treat, here’s a sneak preview of a solo track I recorded for the forthcoming duo album with Laurent Dehors for the Emouvance label (scheduled for release in September 2012).

Oh, and here’s a new Spotify playlist, to get you in the mood for tomorrow’s concert…
