Lots of chatter about the new Peter Murphy LP…
Peter Murphy may be on the road playing Bauhaus songs at the moment, but his next batch of new music won’t be far behind.
The singer is eyeing an early 2014 release for “Lion,” the follow-up to 2011’s “Ninth.” The album was hatched during sessions with producer Youth, an old friend who Murphy got together with “just to see how it went. We did it ourselves, just like a week to see what would go over, and basically we did the album in four and a half days. It was like dropping off the edge of a cliff and no turning back, and it was really exciting.”

Gary Numan speaks to Mark and Stuart about his brand new album Splinter, its industrial sound and moving to the US west coast.
Thanks to Dd – the original Numanoid – for the heads up!
Nick Cave‘s first incarnation – “The Boys Next Door”. Their only LP “Door, Door” is worth checking out for historical value alone, but the excellent track “Shivers” is a real treat – and a real indication of where Cave’s sound would be a dozen years later…
If you happened to be at the rather excellent Postal Service gig last Saturday (18th May 2013) at Manchester Academy 2, you may well have ended up with one of the 100 “I am a visitor here” badges (left) which my mate Jason made specially for the gig.
Hope you enjoyed the gig.
…and thanks to Jason for the spectacular effort.
