If you use Spotify to listen to our music there’s a couple of things you can do which will really help us. The first thing is to add our music to your collection. Next to each song or album click on those three little dots and choose “Save to your Library“.
Secondly, following us on Spotify is another big help and if you do it via this link here, we’ll send you a free download of Innocence, the title track from our new EP.
In which your favourite psychedelic post-punk group slap themselves in their own stupid faces for your entertainment.
Releasing the Innocence EP just before the turn of the new year brought us, as is always the case with new recordings, an enourmous sense of weight lifting from our collective shoulders. We all feel very proud of the new songs and are looking forward to performing them live this year, expanding and opening up the songs even further.
As we’ve mentioned many times, these new songs were all born from much longer sessions of intense collective improvisations. My own personal vocabulary of improvisatory musical language took a leap at the beginning of 2017 after having attended a couple of terms of lessons at the wonderful Morley College in London, under the tutorship of Alex Haines.
Alex graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2013 with a first class degree in Jazz Guitar, and has since become a sought-after performer in many of the UK’s top jazz clubs and venues. As well as being patient and wise teacher, Alex’s playing is a thing of great beauty. Here he is, in a trio with Alex Munk and Nick Jurd, performing a piece called Robots.
When I decided to attend Alex’s classes a friend of mine casually remarked “Why do you need to do that? You already know how to play the guitar”… I didn’t mention that I felt that my own playing at the time was somewhat clumsier than I’d ideally like but I did reply that the process of learning never stops.
Alex, if you happen to be reading this, cheers mate. I’m still wilfully ignoring harmony, but at least now I know what I’m ignoring and why! Ha!
Here’s to the absorbtion of more wisdom and the further inflaming of neurons in 2018!
Dearest friends. Here, as is our tradition, is our annual sonic ritual to summon the New Sun. Thanks and love to everyone who has supported us through 2017.
Onwards towards endless vibrations. May we be reborn as cats.
Some words about the new EP over at Spill Magazine!
SPILL ALBUM PREMIERE: THE INFINITE THREE – INNOCENCE
We are extremely pleased to inform you that our new recording – a collection of four new songs – is now available to place inside your ears and brain.
Go forth here to download the EP from Bandcamp. Alternatively you may choose to set foot thus to purchase the EP from iTunes.
Perhaps you are the sort for whom streaming it from Apple Music seems more comforting. Or you may be inclined to attend hither and save it to your Spotify library.
Those of you who have done the right thing and subscribed to us will, by now, already have the EP available from your Bandcamp account at no additional charge along with every other fucking thing we ever fucking did ever.
If you have not yet done the right thing, kindly move in this direction to do so. Regret is not an option.
Our new EP, Innocence, will be released on Friday 15th December.
During our 2016 tour we stopped off at studios in Newcastle and London to record several hours of improvised music. The most promising lumps of sound from those sessions were excavated at the start of 2017 and Innocence is the first fruit to be assembled from the wreckage.
Four new songs for you: Innocence, Hot Strings of Love, Like A Dog and These Animal’s Eyes.
Innocence is intended as the first of two related EPs. A virtual ‘Side A’ of an album, with ‘Side B’ – a sister-EP – to follow in 2018. The cover artwork is by Harumi Foster.
Also due for release soon (on the 21st December as usual) will be this year’s Winter Solstice song. For those of you who dont’t know – for the past seven years we have issued a new, longform piece of music every 21st of December. Every year presents a new creative challenge for us to bend and manipulate our sonic muscles for you in new and innapropriatly physical ways.
All of the Winter Solstice tracks so far can be found here:
…Which is where the new one will live after it has hatched from its moist egg.
One more thing… There’s a couple of new(ish) shirts available from our merch store. The Lucky Beast shirt features Andrea Voisey’s amazing cover art from last year’s album and can be found here. And the Sonny Sharrock Was Right shirt can be found here, with all the proceeds going to the Youth Music charity.
More news soon.
