“So pleased to have collaborated with these legends.. a huge influence on our music.. the moment we heard Lol’s and Pearl’s instrumentation on the song I was amazed how Curesque it sounded! You’ve got 50% of the original and classic Cure lineup right there… sounds brilliant” – Mark Gemini Thwaite

“As a long time fan of The Cure, it is a true blessing to have Lol and Pearl add their magic to my favourite song on this album. Most grateful indeed!” – Ashton Nyte

In addition to the remix of “The Assembly Line,” MGT has also released an accompanying b-side, “All The Broken Things (Lol Tolhurst Remix).” Tolhurst adds, “I loved remixing “Broken Things,” such a beautiful track!”

MarkGT: “Jesamine is a track from my last album ‘Volumes’ which featured the marvelous Ashton Nyte on vocals, a co-written composition that is been given a fresh MGT remix & makeover and seen as a reminder and stopgap ‘release’ until our ‘Gemini Nyte’ album drops on Cleopatra records in February..  a reminder of one of the songs myself and Ashton wrote that formed a catalyst for the new album.”

‘Gemini Nyte’ by MGT – featuring 13 new songs written and recorded by Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission) and vocalist Ashton Nyte (The Awakening), plus Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke) on drums coming Feb 2018 on Cleopatra Records.  – more details soon!

October brings not one but two MGT remixes for your aural and visual sensory pleasure… firstly the long awaited Sex Gang Children‘Hollywood Slim’ MGT remix, released on 1st October for digital download via the bands website here:

Hollywood Slim MGT remix

SGC formed in England in the early 1980’s, with frontman Andi Sex gang considered one of the founding fathers of the gothic rock scene.. their album Song and Legend was released in 1983 (debuting at #1 in the UK indie charts). 30 years later, the latest SGC album ‘Viva Vigilante!‘ -from which Hollywood Slim is taken – also features a mix of ‘Death Squad Diva’ by MGT.Check out the new SGC video for the single below..

 

October also sees the debut of the Erica Nockalls vs MGT ‘Cut Them Out’ Bodyrokk remix, where Mark deconstructed and recreates last years CTO single (taken from the ‘Imminent Room debut album by EN) in a harder electrodancefloor guitar driven direction, complete with new expanded video below. Erica is best known for her fiddle playing as part of UK band The Wonder Stuff.

Erica Nockalls vs MGT: ‘Cut Them Out’ BodyRokk remix:

marchviolets2014tourSince 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.

“I’m pleased to announce I’ll be joining electronic pioneer and long time friend GARY NUMAN for some US shows in August/Sep.. We collaborated back in 2002 on Gary’s ‘Hybrid’ album on reworkings of his classic ‘Are Friends Electric’ and ‘This Wreckage’ and have known each other for years but never performed live together. He was a big influence on me when I first started playing guitar so really looking forward to it”…. Numan’s new album ‘Splinter’ released Oct’13.
