“Mark is a friend, and the stars were aligned… it was the right song at the right time” – Ville Valo

Along with the release of the single ”Knowing Me Knowing You” on April 15th, British guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (aka MGT) premiered his new  video starring Ville Valo (HIM), the featured vocalist on the ABBA cover. Now over 600k (half a million) views! Stream or download the single here: https://MGT.lnk.to/KnowingMeKnowingYou

amazon itunes google buttons.jpg

The video was shot in the California mountains and Helsinki Finland during February and March with well-known Finnish video director & photographer Ville Juurikkala (The 69 EYES, APOCALYPTICA, HIM). Juurikkala is known for his very unique way of catching pictures, blending in colours, and with the layered shots in this video, he creates a kind of James Bond feeling to it.

MGT gave the following comment about the video shoot:
“ABBA released ‘Knowing Me Knowing You” nearly 40 years ago in the winter of 1977, and the single sleeve and their video had a wintery feel to it, so when we decided to shoot a video for our version, both myself and Ville Valo agreed we should try and capture some of the feel of the ABBA version and have a winter vibe to our video as well.. So we shot my footage up in snow covered mountains, and Ville’s close-ups in front of a fire place in a secret place in Hell-sinki.. we’re pleased with it, and director Ville Juurikkala did a fantastic job!”

Following the release of the first PR EP ‘Long in the Tooth’ featuring a collaboration with <PIG> featuring Raymond Watts and MGT, which recently debuted at No.1 in the Amazon hot new releases chart, the industrial collective Primitive Race has released a music video for “Follow the Leader” from the forthcoming debut album, making its debut on New Noise Magazine [click here], featuring lyrics and vocals by Graham Crabb of Pop Will Eat Itself; also appearing on the track are Erie Loch (Blowload, Exageist), Chris Kniker. and Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, The Mission, Mob Research).

Directed by Dustin Ferguson, vocalist Crabbi of PWEI  had to say of the song, “‘Follow the Leader’ is more about the dumb people that follow our leaders, unquestioning and and without thought, than the leaders themselves”… “We get what we deserve when we bring kids through a system without a grasp of the fundamentals of modern life.”

Conceived by bassist, impresario and Lords Of Acid manager/executive producer Chris Kniker; ‘Primitive Race’ features regular appearances from Crabb, Loch and MGT, and is joined by an all-star cast of contributors on the album including Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry, Danzig), Dave “Rave” Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Jackalope), Kourtney Klein (Combichrist, Nitzer Ebb), Mark “3KSK” Brooks (Warlock Pinchers, Foreskin 500), Josh Bradford (RevCo, Stayte, Simple Shelter), Andi Sex Gang (Sex Gang Children) and more!

“Sex WAX n Rock n Roll” is an upcoming autobiography by former DJ, Mont Sherar, who was instrumental in the creation of two legendary anti-mainstream dance-clubs during the 80s era in Miami and Miami Beach, Florida, namely Fire & Ice and The Kitchen Club. Although this is only part of a life story, Killing Joke is a thread throughout the book and of special note, the drummer and cofounder of the band, Big Paul Ferguson.

To provide a“visual sample” of what lies within, Mont has created the short film, “Chapter Big Paul Ferguson.” This film serves not only as a tribute to the band as a whole, but with rarely seen focus on what many consider one of history’s greatest drummers.

Featuring:
• Never before seen live footage from Killing Joke from 1989 at both Kitchen Club and Cameo Theater, Miami Beach
• Unreleased original music from Big Paul Ferguson, “Wounded Pride”
• Live footage from recent Killing Joke including a dynamic version of “Pssyche”
• Performance by Mark Gemini Thwaite

• Comments from:
Peter Murphy – Bauhaus
Martin Atkins – Public Image Ltd./Killing Joke/Ministry
Martin “Youth” Glover – Killing Joke
Hugo Burnham – Gang of Four
John Ashton – Psychedelic Furs/Satellite Paradiso
Jason Bowld – Killing Joke fill-in/Axewound/Pitchshifter

Peter Murphy has announced the Mr. Moonlight Tour, celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus. Murphy, who has started working with producer Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve) on the follow up to his 2011 critically acclaimed solo effort, NINTH- which also featured MarkGT on guitars – will spend three months touring North America and Europe with a full band including MGT, drummer Nick Lucero and bassist Zef Noise performing only Bauhaus material.

Says Peter, “Since 2006, I have included my Bauhaus work into my solo work as a way of tipping my hat to my own audience…those who discovered my early work as well as new and old fans of those years strong wishes to hear the music of my band crackle and spark in the live arena. Being the foremost advocate of this Bauhaus work, I decided the time was ripe to at last give a pure Bauhaus experience in one Mr. Moonlight world tour. Mr. Moonlight is alive and well, don’t doubt it.”

Bauhaus formed in 1978 and achieved worldwide cult status that continues to this day. The band originally split in 1983, but eventually bowed to public pressure to reform in 1998 and again in 2005. The Mr. Moonlight Tour will be the first time since 2006 that Peter Murphy will perform full Bauhaus sets, and the first time ever that he will do so on his own – with long time guitarist MGT at his side.
