Here’s the second of the rough cut videos/new songs as detailed in yesterday’s post. This one’s called The Lum’s on Fire. One more to come.

So, the Dog Moon Howl EP launch came and went – and even though it was a Sunday gig (not traditionally the best suited evening to rock), it was a grand night, a good time was had by all and so on. This despite a piss poor showing on the Friday from Parcel Force who decided they couldn’t be arsed delivering a box of CDs because was a nice day or whatever, and my main guitar having a breakdown on the day of the gig. So, the EP’s out. Dog Moon Howl at Bandcamp – fill yer boots (also available from iTunes, Amazon blah blah blah).
Since then, I’ve been doing a bit of writing and that, including updates to the Ritual Objects blog. I’ve been revisiting a modern favourite album of mine, Amanda Palmer’s Theatre is Evil (check out the write up HERE) and if you’re partial to some musings on movies/VHS obscurities, I have a look at The Dark Power HERE.
We’re booking new live dates at the moment for both The Craig Hughes Two and Dog Moon Howl (contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for gig enquiries) and we’ve already got a couple of choice Dog Moon Howl dates in Glasgow for your diaries:
On Mon 01 Aug we’re at The ABC 2 for a return engagement with the mighty Lionize. Also playing will be Mantis Taboggan and The Last Gasp. We’ll have tickets for sale at crazy-knock-down-blow-out-how-do-they-do-it discounts very soon. Watch this space.
Sun 08 Oct sees us back at Nice’N’Sleazy with Serpent Kings, as part of their UK tour (+ Warhead + TBC).
There’ll be more gig announcements soon as The Craig Hughes Two gears up to release our live-in-the-studio mini album, Off the Cuff. I’ll keep you updated.
Work continues on the upcoming releases. Here’s a preview of the new Dog Moon Howl E.P. These Days in the shape of a lo-fi video (knocked together out of some under-exposed rehearsal footage) for the title track. The tune itself is perhaps a bit of departure for the band but I believe we’re all seriously pleased with it. I know I am.
Dog Moon Howl has been working on new material of late and taken to bouts of random jamming. I recently bought a Zoom H2N field recorder for an upcoming documentary project and thought I’d try it out at rehearsal. Sounds pretty damn good, I reckon. Anyway, if you’ve a spare ten minutes, click on the soundcloud player below for a warts-and-all performance of the Campbell/Hughes/Tennick on-the-spot composition Jam #1. Those of you with an aversion to extended space-blues jams may want to move along. Nothing to see here.
