Since I chose to leave Peter Murphy‘s band last September over personal differences, things have been quiet on the live front but all of that is to change soon, as my friends The March Violets will be touring the USA in June and I’ll be joining them onstage for a few songs at the San Diego and Los Angeles shows.
You may recall The Violets reformed in 2007 and released ‘Made Glorious’ last year, their first full album in many years. The limited edition 2xCD includes the ‘Dandelion King’ MGT remix (check out free Soundcloud download below). The Violets were part of the seminal UK goth scene in the early 80’s and were labelmates to The Sisters of Mercy on Merciful Release. Frontman Si Denbigh later toured with the Sisters on numerous tours. More info and tour dates on the March Violets website [here]
In other news, I completed some new remixes for Sex Gang Childrenfor their forthcoming EP, and the band previewed the new video for their forthcoming download single ‘Hollywood Slim (MGT remix)’ at their recent London concert on 24th May – the video was shot in London, Athens and Leipzig. A release date for the single and video is TBC. More news at sexgangchildren.com
Last but not least, also just finished work on Erica Nockall’sforthcoming sophomore album, contributing guitars, various racket and assorted programming to five new songs on the album. It’s Sounding great so watch this space! EN is the fiddle player from UK band The Wonder Stuff and a solo artist in her own right.
