Kevin Haskins, drummer and founding member of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, Tones on Tail and his latest trio Poptone, has announced his involvement in an exciting new MTV-inspired television show.

Haskins just signed on as a music supervisor and producer for the new project, entitled FOXES Television, created by mother and son duo Tina and Julian de la Celle, founders of the rock ‘n’ roll music and men’s fashion-focused FOXES Magazine.

FOXES TV aims to fill a huge void, where once there was exciting music programming, such as The Tube and MTV, and also include men’s fashion. The aesthetic of FOXES Magazine will be placed firmly on the screen, showcasing new bands and men’s fashion, interviews, and behind the scenes footage with a very cinematic look.

Mentioned in Despatches –  8th July 2018

I am now getting so many submissions, links and physicals, press releases and album launch notifications that covering more than just a fraction has become an impossible task. I feel guilty watching so many great records go unmentioned so I thought that a short (hopefully) weekly round up of some of the music that I haven’t had time to write about at length might be the answer. So welcome to the first Mentioned In Despatches.

The Last Woman –  Larkmail

If you like your music dark and menacing, then The Last Woman is for you. A blend of brooding bass lines, doom ladened guitar riffs, industrial rawness and demonic vocals that make Nick Cave sound like a chirpy pop diva. It is a challenging listen wandering between the stark and beautiful to Fall-esque rants and reminds us that music, like all art, is best not when it is giving the audience what they want but what they didn’t realise they wanted.

Katy Hurt on tour and new EP planned

mail-2New EP from Redwood

Redwood have announce a new e.p. is going to see the light of day, titled Lay Your Love Down EP it will be released on 5th October 2018 via Failure By Design Records. Drawing on influence from a wide range of genres—from emo to post-rock—Redwood combine delicate melodies and thought provoking lyrics with intricate, shimmering guitars and powerful choruses with explosive endings. On record they’re nothing short of impressive, but the live show is where this band truly shines; energetic, atmospheric, bold and emotionally powerful. Check out lead single Mother here.

mailI Hate Hate, brand new single from The Cuban Brothers

The Cuban Brothers have announced the release of their brand new single ‘I Hate Hate’, a cracking summery reworking of the classic soulful Razzy Bailey track.

A track that remains highly relevant in today’s political climate of divisions in the US under President Tump, his LGBT stance and a Britain divided over Brexit and Trump’s state visit on the 13th July, never have the words ‘I Hate Hate’ been more significant or poignant, so the brothers decided it was time to bring a little love back into our lives with this soulful, funky number proving that love is most definitely alive.

Tancred releases Something Else ahead of new album

29597572_1977515075634092_4823471223990199273_nTancred (aka Jess Abbott), will release her latest album Nightstand on June 1st via Polyvinyl Record Co. But fans eager for another glimpse into the record before then can listen to the new single “Something Else”, out today on all DSPs. “Something Else” follows the “urgent and shimmering” (Stereogum) lead single “Reviews”, and most recently, the song “Queen of New York”, dubbed by The FADER as an “ode to one-night-stands.” Following a tour this spring in support of Julien Baker in the US, Tancred is also excited to announce dates for a North American tour this autumn with The Joy Formidable.

‘Nightstand’ is an album born out of an unexpected revelation Abbott experienced following her transformation into a more confident person, one full-throatedly declared on 2016’s plucky ‘Out of the Garden’. “After I became comfortable in this new skin, in truly being myself, I was immediately hit with loneliness,” she reveals. “I realized that human connection is really important to me.” And so Abbott began a new journey of personal exploration, one that involved connecting with other people just as much as connecting with herself. “I was reading a lot of books, learning a lot of new hobbies, meeting so many new people — just taking in as much information as possible to try and figure out what it really meant to me to be alive,” she recalls.

thAs many of you know I had a previous new music site which I ran for a number of years. Green Man Music was my first attempt at covering the latest music of the day with a view to catch underground, leftfield and off the radar music of all genres and geographical locations.

Now DAA is up and running I thought that I would dig some of those lost reviews with the help of some nifty software, dredge the back waters of the internet and post them on this site. As they are all from anything from a few months to a few years ago I am adding them with a back dated position on the site so you will find them all bunched together at the earliest point of this sites posting chronology.

Over the next few weeks I will be adding all sorts of stuff, if there is anything specific that you are looking for check the tag cloud or use the search bar.

Towns call it a day

securedownloadJust a week after the release of their debut full-length ‘Get By,’ the Weston- super-Mare four piece call it a day.

 Here is a statement from the band:

 We are sad to inform you all TOWNS have decided to call it a day. We have had a wonderful 3 years but it is time for us to all move on and explore new things. I would like to thank everyone who has ever supported us, believed in us, shared the beers, gave us a floor and showed us a good time. A big thank you to Joe and Adrian at Howling Owl Records for putting out our album. Gareth White, Rory Attwell, Owen Morris, Chris Fraser, Lewis Jamieson and Billy Burrell for their time and energy. Finally a huge thanks to Dom Mitchison who poured his heart into the making of our album. We are eternally indebted to all of you I can’t thank you all enough. 


No dead flowers, here we go to another candle that I know.


Big Love TOWNS X

Saint Agnes single launch show

securedownload-1 Cinematic psych duo Saint Agnes are set to release their brand new single Old Bone Rattle on June 10th through London based Energy Snake Records (home of Vuvuvultures) and play Hackney’s The Sebright Arms to celebrate the occasion.

Raw, bold and sultry, the title track showcases the band’s trademark Ennio Morricone rock n’ roll style, trippy Western inspired psychedelic-rock in its purest form. The B-side sees the pair – Jon Tufnell of The Lost Souls Club and Lola Colt’s Kitty Austen – duet on a cover of The Doors’ Roadhouse Blues.

Jon and Kitty met at a gig whilst playing in their respective bands and quickly bonded over their mutual love of Nick Cave and Jack White. In Kitty’s East London flat they experimented with ghostly guitar reverb, swirling Hammond organ and dirty blues harmonica, the result is brooding psycha-western no-nonsense rock n’ roll at its best; think Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with Ray Manzarek on keys and Kills-esque dual vocals.

10th June – The Sebright Arms  (‘Old Bone Rattle’ Single Launch)

24th June The Old Blue Last – London w/Blossoms

18th July Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen – London w/Black Market Karma
