Stop the Press!!!! - KTP playing Live Sat 12!!!

Yes it’s true!  We’re playing for half an hour downstairs after this show.  Just a small appearance to get us back into the swing of it, but if anybody’s free that night, the show itself is well worth seeing, and we’ll be a bonus!  Click title for details.

Pogo a 21-year-old who has the incredible talent of mixing songs using chord, bass & voice samples from movies.  This was made entirely from sounds in Up!

I can’t even begin to imagine the level of patience required to create a song like this (or even editing the clip!)

A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid anymore.

Hi Johnnyx, thanks for the kind words.  Some good questions there.  To answer:-

1. Yes, to some extent.  In the process of making the new album we’ve gone “back to our roots” a wee bit, and some of the mixes we do will be more quirky like our original stuff.

2. It’s mostly Jon, Nick and George, with some contributions from Peter and Simon

3. Not at all!  Phil Harding was instrumental in introducing us to Chicago House at the time.

Glad to hear you’re into our stuff - hope you enjoy what’s to come!

Fool’s Gold.Los Angeles-based afropop band

Fool’s Gold

The Cockpit, Leeds)

From Vampire Weekend to Foals, afrobeat has become a part of pop lately, but there’s nothing quite like this. Fool’s Gold aren’t – as one hapless punter had imagined – a Stone Roses tribute but a fearsome Los Angeles-based afropop band. Led by Lewis Pesacov – a man who plays guitar when he isn’t raising his arms in the air – and vocalist/guitarist Luke Top, the group grew up listening to western pop radio alongside soukous, high-life and desert music, and bring it all together in work that is uplifting and inspirational. At times, their approach to African music brings to mind that of the Pogues’ to traditional Irish folk: playing it faster, and with such demented enthusiasm that one of the drummers falls off his stool.
