So, finally. The new Craig Hughes Two EP is available as a Bandcamp exclusive (download/streaming). Listen via the player below, then buy it for whatever price you see fit to pay, including of course absolutely nothing at all. You cheap bastard.
So the new EP from The Craig Hughes Two – yes, we’ve decided it’s an EP – should be out at the end of November. Called Off the Cuff, it’ll look like this:
As a wee preview, here’s the brand spankers new lyric video for My Side of the Veil. Please enjoy.
A friend’s Facebook post of the “what song would you want played at your funeral?” variety got me thinking. Robert Johnson’s They’re Red Hot, perhaps? Tom Waits’ What’s He Building? Ultimately for me, it would most likely be War Pigs by Black Sabbath.
The mourners, should there be any, are to sing along with the guitar solo in a “woah-woah” styley as shovelfuls of dirt are dumped to the rhythm onto my budget chipboard casket. As the song ends, a loop should start of mid-’80s coked-up Ozzy exhorting a pigs’ blood soaked arena crowd to “Go fucking crazy!” before affirming, “we fucking love you!” The loop should continue playing until everyone in attendance gradually gets the message and trudges miserably away through the inevitable rain and mud.
“Go fucking crazy!”
“We fucking love you!”
Brief update: there will be something of a flurry of Channel Nowhere activity over the next couple of weeks, so you can look forward (or not) to the release of the remastered Pennies On My Eyes on March 11th and a couple of gig announcements for both The Craig Hughes Two and Dog Moon Howl. Promos will go out for Pennies just prior to the release date and a lyric video for new track No-One Cares If You Die will be up soon on YouTube.
Told you it was brief.
