Yet another Joyless Jones remix lives the studio. Black Dog by Ambition Demolition is an upbeat rendition of a song about depression…. Catch what the boys are up to and what gigs they have planned on their Facebook page:
I have had the greatest pleasure in remixing a tune for the finest of garage punk rockers, Fever Creature. The tune is What the Eye Doesn’t See and one that appears in its original form on their debut digital EP release Behind Closed Doors.
I challenged my very good friend from Rogue Sector Andy Trussler, to do a remix of the video from the original release which he has done with great aplomb. Check out the tune and the video here:
Department S released a marvellous album back in 2015 called When All Is Said and All Is Done which I co-wrote and produced.
The title track was written by Phil Thompson who now fulfils guitar duties with the Rezillos as well as Dept S. I decided to remix the track for fun, so this isn’t an official Department S endorsed release which is a shame. So there you go, let’s not let it go to our heads.
Here’s a rather unenthusiastic Youtube video I put together mashing up a bit of footage from the original Department S video along with my own footage.
You’ll be thrilled to know I’m sure, that the second part of the Bunky Wimp series is now available for download from all your favourite (and not so favourite) digital sources.
“Who is Bunky I hear you cry?”.. Well you’ll just have to work it out for yourselves once all tracks in the series are released.
It’s called.. The Ballad of Bunky Wimp (Part2: Arthur). You can listen to it here for free on Youtube if you feel so disposed, but do buy a download if you can, my children are starving.
Parts three and four are currently being worked on (when I have the energy) and should be available by the summer. I am hoping to do a physical release of all four tracks in the future should there be enough demand.
I like dabbling in video, and during the Covid lockdown I had a bit more time on my hands. I wanted to make a film about the tedium of being shut indoors, self-isolating. I made three separate films, the idea being I get more manic as the episodes go on… enjoy!
I am please to announce that I have released a new digital single as of 22nd March. It’s a reworking of a song written and recorded for the Critically acclaimed Department S album When All Is Said And All Is Done, which was released in 2016 on Westworld/Plastichead.
This is being released on Pete Jones’ label Jabberjab ART and Media UK.
I have taken the original recording and re-recorded guitar and vocal parts to freshen it up a bit, perfect for these apocalyptic times. It can be downloaded at the usual digital outlets but my preference is CDBaby who I’ve worked with for many years and I trust them to pass on the money
Musicians playing on this are:
Pete Jones: Guitars, bass, vocals, synths, programming
