We like this lot. There will almost certainly be an effusive, hugely expansive Kill Van Kulls album post here sometime so I’ll be quick now.
Proper, substantial, grown up synthguitarPopMusic. Full of regret, optimism, ambition and hope. New Manchester based label called, nicely, ‘Label’. Nice band logo. Group shots feature good solid ‘band-type’ posing. Combine look of ’Cool But Nice Guys with a dash of ‘QuiffGlam SOOO-phistication’. They’d make the jukebox their space, conspiratorially playing cool records and up to something - quite happy taking you down the pub alley for a knee-trembler and/or thorough mugging. Well – that’s my impression (to unnecessarily drag Lord & Lady Neil of Tennantshire into it all…)
…**focus**….RIIIGHT so; The Kill Van Kulls “Wooden Heart EP” is released March 18 via Label.
Pre-order it via their .coms/FBs/YTs etc - give them an email and they’ll give you the title track – FOR FREE – now. Feels like quality things going on here. I think I know what tickles you by now… if it isn’t even slightly ‘piqued’ here then – and I don’t like saying it – you’ve changed. Wrongly.
…Gary Tibbs and yours truly…
Last years Manchester gig was an unexpected treat. That this new LP is even here, with a phenomenal title, pure & engaging in it’s total conviction and sits there old school Top Ten style = unbelievable. And lovely.
Onto a new Prince ,errm, something. Presumbly while idly browsing those weirdly fascinating Sunday Times motoring section number plate adverts he spotted a beauty & so immediately bought it. Contrary as he is Prince doesn’t actually own a car but he loves this new reg SO VERY much he’s just gonna riff around it….
No Bowie, sorry… it didnt actually happen, too outlandish…
that Tuesday morning shower was my *calm yourselves, ladies* Bobby Ewing moment….
