BPF Remote Viewing EP banner

“Co-produced with seasoned guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite, the BPF Remote Viewing EP is a thirty-minute rhythmic rumination, punctuated by hefty dollops of hard truth” (Vassifer)

Released on 24th August 2018 via the Dead Radio Station record label, we are pleased to confirm this new collaboration on the solo release by Big Paul Ferguson: Official (aka BPF) of post punk legends Killing Joke… with KJ embarking on a 40th anniversary tour in September, drummer “Big Paul” has announced the release of his solo debut EP, titled Remote Viewing, a new collaboration with Mark Gemini Thwaite.   The EP’s seven tracks include guitar, bass, and keyboard contributions from MarkGT, best known for his work with The Mission, Peter Murphy, Tricky, Gary Numan, and his own band MGT;  Ferguson had performed drums on the latest MGT album, Gemini Nyte. Also appearing will be Brainshadow, who mastered the album & performs electric violin on “X-Box.”

“Killing Joke drummer delivers a 9/10 widescreen classic”.. BPF “assembled the finished tracks by fleshing out his pre-recorded loops of rhythms, guitar and keyboards, with the assistance of the multi-instrumentalist Mark Gemini Thwaite (MGT)”..  “these songs are superbly produced, and it’s MGT who co-produced the album with Big Paul in Los Angeles”  Louderthanwar.com

“Drums rise to meet the fiery guitars of underground veteran Mark Gemini Thwaite, whose presence is felt throughout the EP”… “ fulfills everything the words Big Paul solo release promise”… “With Thwaite adding dark menace behind the curtain, the drums unsurprisingly take center stage”

“Remote Viewing will provide new treasures to listeners years after their introduction to it. An essential addition to the discography of one of underground music’s most innovative minds” JoeGausten.com

Check out the video teaser below for ‘I Am War”.. “The thundering hooves of “I Am War” arrive to deliver another densely layered exorcism wherein Thwaite unleashes an electrical storm of guitar noise” (Vassifer.blogs.com)

Also check out the video teaser for ‘Reboot’:

BPF Remote Viewing sleeve MGT & BPF

“Incredibly refreshing and unique.. it’s easy to hit play and before you know it you’re at the end. It’s dark and surreal, but it combines that with relaxing, hypnotic vibes that makes it difficult to turn away from. If you like Nine Inch Nails or any kind of melodic industrial music then you have to check it out” MetalPlanetMusic.com

BPF first made its debut with the track “The Great Motivator” on the 7-inch vinyl EP included with special editions of writer/photographer/biographer Mont Sherar’s Twilight of the Mortals book released in 2017 via PC-Press, which also featured MarkGT and is included on the new EP release. Written and recorded by Ferguson & Thwaite at Drum ‘n’ Steel Works in Baltimore, USA & co-produced and mixed by Thwaite at Mob Research laboratories in Los Angeles.. The EP will be released in CD and digital editions and is available for pre-order now via Dead Radio Station 🎧

MGT pays tribute to fallen hero Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots with an emotionally raw cover of STP No.4 classic deep-cut “Atlanta,” found on the new MGT album ‘Gemini Nyte’. The band has partnered with NewNoiseMagazine.com to premiere a video for the touching homage:

NewNoiseMagazine.com MGT Atlanta Premiere

http://newnoisemagazine.com/video-premiere-mgt-atlanta-stone-temple-pilots-cover/

“As an avid fan of Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots I was deeply moved by his passing. Mark and I were busy recording the Gemini Nyte album at the time and I reached out to him to record some acoustic guitars for “Atlanta”, as I was toying with releasing a stripped version of the song as an Ashton Nyte solo single / tribute at the time. Mark kindly obliged and then kept adding bits and pieces to the musical arrangement and it organically evolved into a “Gemini Nyte” track. Once I had laid down the vocals I knew it had to be our album closer. It is not necessarily the best known STP track but has been my favourite song of Scott’s since the moment I first heard it. We shot a very impromptu video of Mark and I recording the song in the studio, in the hope that it captures the intimacy of the performance and the love we both have for this beautiful song and our respect for the body of work Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots have given us. Rest In Peace Scott.” – Ashton Nyte (MGT)

“If this haunting cover doesn’t give you goosebumps, we don’t know what will”.. Alternative Corner magazine name ‘Atlanta’ track of the day: http://altcorner.com/trackoftheday/mgt-atlanta/

MGT is touring behind their recently released sophomore album, Gemini Nyte, which is available now from Cleopatra Records.
