Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!

It's here again...!

Today it is FKA Twigs and her track "Two Weeks". A huge track that is beautiful and interesting in equal measure. The production of it is pristine and the vocals on it astonishing. I particulary like the dark, brooding feel that the song has befor edropping into an almost euphoric chorus. Beautiful!

Hope you all have a great weekend and remember if you want cheap Camden Rocks Festival wrist band click HERE and use the code: CRF15FB002

As always, big love to you all, believe!

The Wounded Lovers

NEW SINGLE - "MOVERS AND SHAKERS"

THE NEW WOUNDED LOVERS SINGLE HAS LANDED!

"Movers and Shakers" is the first of three new Wounded Lovers releases.  The rumour circulating at Casa Mojo HQ is that it is the follow up to "Stolen Car".  Whatever! Here at HQ we have been attempting to dance to it's obviously eastern european influenced beats.  Not easy after hours of lounging around the pool drinking "David Niven's"!

It's quite unlike anything the boys have produced before.  Its MEAN, its MOODY.....and its MAGNIFICENT!

It has the fabulous T-Bone FC production, that we have come to expect.  Another tantalising T-Bone FC solo too. Fenwick has apparently written a bag full of new tunes, and we salute this news..

 

We hope you enjoy this free download and stream, as much as we do..

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!

It's that time again: Tune of the Week!

Today it is: Brian Protheroe with his track "Fly now".

The only reason I am aware of Protheroe is from an interview with Noel Gallagher who said his friend and fellow Mancunian talent, Morrissey, turned him on to the track, "Pinball", which he now loves. I checked that song out and then the back catalogue of Protheroe and he is colossal! This track is so short and simple and yet it is so memorable and catchy. My kind of shiz! However, do you think that the 'Scissor Sisters' have COMPLETELY ripped him off? I smell a court case! - Oh and this is by far better than the friggin 'Scissor Sisters'!

A seriously great artist and one to check out, I think you'll agree!

Remember folks tonight we headline the Camden Barfly

So, come on down for some messy, tuneful times! It's going to be mega, believe!!

FORWARDS!!

London Live

Brothers and Sisters,

What a wonderful morning we've woken up to here in the mighty L.D.N! It's glorious! Hopefully all our days will be just as glorious, huh?!

I thought I would write a little post today about when you do a gig and it turns out to be the most inspirational and lovely thing to be involved in. I did one of these magic gigs last night, but more about that later.

Now, don't get me wrong I live to gig and as most of you know - I gig A LOT! But aside from being on stage, gigs can be very hit and miss. There are three scenerios that can ruin a gig:

Promoters

A dodgy promoter who doesn't care about the work you are doing for their show is one of the worst. Rehearsals, equipment, travel, years of practice and study of your craft all cost money and time. So, when a Promoter treats you like they are doing them a favour, it kind of takes the sheen of the event itself.

The Other Acts

There are also instances when the other acts you are playing with that night are rude, talentless or really annoying - Sometimes all three. This again makes you want to get the gig over with and leave. 

The Audience

Yes, sadly you can have a really rude audience. I once played a gig in a venue I shan't mention, where I had someone walk on stage and speak to me whilst I was playing. I had audience members walk through the stage area to get to the bar and I had people sit right at the front of the stage (during a intimate acoustic night) and play drinking games in a very loud manner. The lack of respect can really throw your game - Of course this never goes for you lot who come to see me of course. You're all lovely.

But then there are times when the gig is awesome, the promoters are great, the audience is receptive and the other acts are not only lovely, but they are brilliant performers too.

Last night at Obar was one of these nights. 

Seriosuly, I was in awe of the songs that these artists had written and their performnces were great! I just loved the night. It's great to be a part of a live scene that is so fresh and full of great talent. There are a lot of players in London, but only a few are any good. If that building had have been hit by a meteor, the music scene would have lost some incredible talent. 

Luckily for us and the music scene, there were no meteors heading towards Soho that night.

So, I feel I should mention the players (in no particular order) so as you can check them all out:

Joseph Lofthouse

Emel Michael

Tim De Graauw

Vinzenz Stergin

Cat Maria

Chloe Akam

Pharella

The show was a charity competition set up by Cameo Sessions. The guys involved did a great job of looking after the acts and treating them with a huge amount of love and respect, which is all that an artist asks for really. 

That and you get a receptive audience, and this audience was just that!

All in all a great night of fantastic acts - Oh and yeah it was a competition and you're probably thinking "He must have gone through to the next round, hence why he is bigging it up so much"...

...Well no, I didn't! And you know what, I couldn't have missed out to a more talented bunch, so I'm all for it, believe!!

Hiring A Musician

Hiring a musician/band or thinking of asking them to play at your event?

 

What you think you're paying for:                     

      Someone to play some music.

 

What you're actually paying for:

Someone to play some music plus:

Equipment and instruments.

Hours of rehearsal time.

Rehearsal space.

 Transportation to and from the venue.

 The amount of money spent on lessons and training to become the musicians that they are.

Promotion and Website costs.

The percentages that go to income tax.

Telephone and internet bills spent organizing the performance and its rehearsals.

Any manager, agent,or other booking fees.

Insurance.                                

 

Not to mention......the payment also has to cover food, housing, bills, and all other living expenses. 

 

STILL THINK THAT OFFERING "EXPOSURE" IS FAIR RECOMPENSE FOR A PERFORMANCE?

 

You wouldn't expect a plumber, carpenter, hair-dresser, doctor, dentist, optician, electrician, chef, auto-mechanic, dressmaker, or shop owner to work for free would you?

 

- Article courtesey of Tune Core

                                                                                 
Yes, we're having fun......but it takes a lot of time and money investment to have this fun.

Rich Hamer & PLYMOUTH GUITAR SCHOOL

Behind The Looking Glass

The modern world brings us literally hundreds of videos and photos every day. We are presented with theses frozen moments in time where friends are laughing together, musicians are sharing a moment on stage, a bride is walking into a church... It is a wonderful thing to take hold of a perfect slice of time and have the chance to see it again; to 'see' that feeling once more. We often admire the people in that image, yet how often do we ask who was behind the lens? What artist captured this perfect moment? Enter Scott Calnon...

Scott Calnon is an established photographer here in the South West and he is responsible for some of the most awe-inspiring images around. You can see his handywork everywhere from art gallery walls to treasured wedding albums and even the websites of good-for-nothing jazz musicians! His photography is refreshingly unique and always a cut above the rest:

www.scottcalnon-photography.com

"Scott has caught some of my favourite moments on stage with a couple of bands I've been in and he was also the photographer at my wedding. When he shows up at a gig I just know I can relax and lose myself in the performance - because he genuinely knows how to capture a moment. The man just has a gift!" (Rich Hamer)


 

Mark Mathews

The day is almost upon us!

Brothers and Sisters!!

How are you all?! 

I did a fantastic gig at Luna Lounge last night, thanks to all those that were there! I love playing there because not only are the crowd warm and receptive, but the promoters/owners treat the musicians with the upmost respect. There is none of this "We're doing you a favour" belief. Oh no, they know this is mutually beneficial and so work hard to help us out as much as we help them. Love it. 

I really look forward to getting back there and playing again.

On other news, Monday sees the release of the new EP, Misspent Future!!! Exciting, make sure you get yourself a copy by clicking HERE

Also, at midday on the same day (16th Feb) the brand spanking new video will be played on my FACEBOOK page!!

And then if that wasn't enough I play a solo gig on the 16th and 18th and then the mighty One Ts are back on stage with me, headlining the Barfly! Check out all the gigs HERE

Yep, there is much to be excited about here in Mathews HQ, believe!!

Tune of the week!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Tune of the week!

Today it is the ninties band, Smaller with Wasted.

I found out about 'Smaller' from the mighty Chief himself, Noel Gallagher, who back in the day had mentioned the song 'Digsys Dinner' was about his mate - Peter 'Digsy' Deary who was lead singer in a band called 'Smaller'. Smaller, a band from Liverpool, released one, great called 'Badly, Badly' and this was one of the singles lifted from it. It's scouse ninties indie at it's best and reminds me of fellow LIverpudlians 'The La's'. Snarling vocals and simple but huge guitar riffs make this an absolute stomper and a good one to play before going out and getting wasted yourselves!

Just a reminder that this Monday (16th Feb) my 4th studio EP, Misspent Future, is released along with the brand new video for the last single lifted from it, Someone!

Seriously this video is incredible and features none other than my little bro, believe!!

Anthology V2

The tracklisting to "Anthology (the best of Azwel 2003-2009)" has been updated.   Being it was released at the time of "Leaving the Fold" it was largely based around that sound.  

The revamped release is more of a retrospective look-back at that time period and thus, a much stronger/more accurate "introduction to the past."   There is thought of doing a remix session, as with the recent bsides release, "Inversions." (Each of those songs were remixed and remastered in high quality.)    It could happen, time will tell.   The tracklisting is not chronological like Inversions, but it does kick off with the older material. For example, track 1 is mm from album 2-Diversions.

Music Video number 3!

Brothers and Sisters!!

Good day to you all, because that's what I want you all to have - A damn good day!

I'm feeling exhausted after last nights music video shoot for 'Someone'. We were meant to shoot it on Friday night, but owing to gridlocked traffic on the isle of dogs for hours it never came to pass. So, as a last minute decesion to quickly get it done before the release of the 'Misspent Future' EP, (16th Feb) we enlisted my brother to be our actor (he's a professional thesp, don't you know?!) and then we sped down to a studio in Brixton.

All went well. We were quick and managed to roll through the video getting some awesome performances. We experiemented a bit and found our favourite version before declaring it was a 'Wrap'! 

It was merely 10:40pm and we were done. We were very happy with ourselves as we expected it to go on to the early hours. Oh how we congratualted ourselves. We were in a heedy, happy, self obsessed mood. 

Cabs weere called and we packed up ready to go. 

And then. 

We found that the gates had been padlocked shut! We were locked in! How could this be?!!

The studio had always been open 24hours for us creative types and now we were like dogs in a kennel!

This was not good.

"Why didn't you just climb over the fence?" I hear you say. Well, smart arses, the reason being is that we had massive amounts of lighting and camera equipment that had to be delivered back in the morning. We simply couldn't leave without it and this stuff is HEAVY!

However, my brother - 'The Talent' - didn't need to wait around. So, we grabbed a ladder and helped him over to a waiting cab and freedom. He waved goodbye as we were left, behind bars dreaming of a life on the outside. 

It turns out that the site had recently been accuisitioned by another company who had decided on THAT night, to lock the gates! After numerous phone calls we found that the closest person who worked for the company was down in Kent and was not planning to come and set us free.

The dick.

So, we did the only thing left. We called a lock smith and waited in the cold studio listening to songs about captivity, dreaming of what we were going to do when we eventually got out.

Hours later we had a man cutting through the locks. A man who was uncomfortable to be around due to his VERY perculiar personality. Although, with a job that requires you to be cutting locks at strange hours in the evening I guess you're going to be slightly weird. 

We got our cabs and made our way home. Sweet, sweet home!

Check out my Facebook and Twitter pages that will be updating with pictures and videos of the shoot.

But boy do we have a great music video for you! Oh yes, I am really hoping to get it through post production and out there for the release of the EP because it's awesome, believe!!

FORWARDS!!

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son

Behind the Song: "Star-Crossed"

Courtesy: Nathalie Le Pennec

It's now been more than seven months since the release of Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son's debut full-length album, Friends in Low Places. Despite the time, the songs remain fresh for much of the loyal fanbase.

One of the favorites for the crowd continues to be "Star-Crossed." Bobby and Jon discuss track No. 8 in the newest "Behind the Song."

Where did you draw inspiration for "Star-Crossed?"

BM: "I drew inspiration from 'Peter Pan,' 'West Side Story,' 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Bonnie and Clyde.' A lot of fucked up love stories that were doomed to fail. These relationships were completely romanticized and ill-advised, but they were dumb and in love and followed their hearts (usually to their own demise)."

JA: "I didn't have much to say with the lyrics for this one, but very much its aura. We didn't really have a true bombastic, epic-in-sound track yet for the album at that point, and that's something I'm big on. So I would say I had a pretty big influence on the track sounding (audibly) how it does."

How did the song change since how you initially wrote it?

BM: "What ended up being the chorus, was originally the bridge and at Jon’s suggestion, I re-worked the song and it came out to how it is on the record. There was also a third verse that we cut in order to streamline the song, but we use it as a live intro to the song. I wish I didn’t have to cut it, but I’m glad we were able to repurpose it."

JA: "The song was originally three verses, a bridge and a chorus. He was going for something different, and I respect that, but when I heard the bridge, I knew that was the catch. That was the part I remembered from it. That was the part I could see thousands singing along to at once. I begged him to redo it with that as a chorus, throw in a solo and have this huge ending. I actually ended up composing the drums for this song, with two sticks I had laying around and a bedspread. I also wrote the lead for the song that Dan plays live."

What's your favorite element of the song?

BM: "I really enjoy the verses and the solo. The crowd usually sings the chorus, so I also enjoy that aspect of it."

JA: "Obviously the chorus is great, but my favorite part of the song is undoubtedly the solo. It tells a story, which I beg and push Bobby to do every single time he records one. It's actually my favorite part of the entire album."

This is one of the poppier songs on the album. Were you trying to write one like that?

BM: "Not really. When I sit down to write, I don’t go 'oh I’m going to write a pop song, or a love song' I just put the pen to the paper and let my mind wander until I find something that feels right."

JA: "I don't think it hurt that we wrote one. I wanted this enormous sounding anthem of sorts. I think, to a degree, that gets across."

How is it represented live?

BM: "Like I said, we use the cut third verse as the intro, and the crowd really gets into this song because of the easy, catchy chorus. It is always a fun, high-energy song to play live."

JA: "It's the only song that we play I use effects on. So that's pretty cool. Crowd really gets into this one, and I give a nice lead-in to Bobby's solo. Dan and Joe add a lot on backup vocals too."

Where does it stand on the album for you?

BM: "It is the only full 'love' song on the record, and the main character is referring to the same girl he is refers to in the end of 'Scoundrels.'"

JA: "I personally would have placed it after 'Deadbeat' on the album, but I get why it comes after 'Guilden Street.' It works."

Will this one stick around as you enter Another Deadbeat Tour?

BM: "I don’t see why not. I like it and the band likes it and the crowd likes it. Even Joe sings along."

JA: "Not my say, but I sure hope so. Maybe stagger it a bit to make it more special."

Mahoney also noted he recorded all the leads and solos for the song in one take, a rarity these days for musicians.
