The Drifter’s Escape

Entkommen

Gosh it’s been quiet here. Even tumbleweed would have been an exciting distraction. I’ve kind of been pretty full-on with Invaderband this year, but the good news is The Poseidon Adventure re-soundtrack is virtually finished and will be released next year. In advance of that, a track from it entitled ‘Entkommen’ (meaning ‘Escape’) will be broadcast at this years 5th The Dark Outside event (‘A site specific 24 hour FM radio broadcast in a place where you might never hear it’) on 23rd Sept 2017.

The track will also be released in a physical format by the superb Polytechnic Youth label early 2018.

Turned on my record player— It was Rock-a-day Johnny singin’, “Tell Your Ma, Tell Your Pa Our Love’s A-gonna Grow Ooh-wah, Ooh-wah”

The poster says it all really. Invaderband play their first show this year, upstairs in Sandinos, Derry. There will be a little present for everyone who comes. Note that this is NOT an album launch – I’ll try to sort that for January. x

cd

The Invaderband album is now out at the start of 2017. Blame me for not realising how long vinyl takes to press. However people who ordered the vinyl will still get the album on the original release date of 25th November, albeit on a CD (pictured) instead. The vinyl will then follow around Christmas time.

The street date for the album is now 6th Jan 2017.

Invaderband Is Nigh

inv-front

It’s been a while. Sorry I’ve been quiet. Life, etc.

But I’m delighted to finally be able to announce my next record. It is the self-titled debut album from Invaderband. And I believe it’s the best thing I’ve ever been involved with. It will be released on 25th November on Digital Download and Vinyl LP formats.

Pre-orders of the vinyl edition will also bag you a free & exclusive 3-track CDr of previously unreleased Invaderband material. These tracks will not be made available in any other way, ever. An instant rarity. Anyway, you can listen to the opening track and pre-order here.

 

If you don’t want to use bandcamp, you can also pre-order a copy directly from me, which is fine and dandy as it means I won’t have to pay bandcamp or paypal fees.
