19th March 2015
The Vinyl Factory probably makes the best vinyl in the UK. But their comms are terrible. Similarly Key Productions. Lovely templates for the artwork. Bit clueless.
Vinyl Factory had a flood.
Delays. Maybe the flood was a metaphorical Record Store Day flood. No sorry, can’t give you a date.
But I have a date now and it’s the 24th March.
Thank you for listening.
soz to report; One Girl vinyl delayed by a few days; something to do with paper from Denmark, apparently…..
. New EP out. Looks like this. You can hear a sampler on the ‘listen’ page of this site.
we now do downloads…..sorry, lost loads of my previous posts when the new site went up, but to be honest they weren’t that interesting (and to be fair, there weren’t loads)
Vinyl arriving 2nd March….
there’s a 7” single coming out in the summer and that will be the final Heligoland release.
I have decided that I am only making utility music after that. Which is to say, music that has a use, other than just being listened to. This is because I think the world has enough ‘listening’ music now, whereas I believe there is still a point to making music if you can think of a use for it that no-one else has. (Or if they thought of it, but just didn’t do it very well.) One could argue that One Girl was a move in that direction, as dancing is a very specific use for music – the only problem being that it’s a bit of an easy target and one that a lot of people have aimed for, making it a crowded working area, and thus one where you keep bumping into other people. Also, have bad ears now, and I can’t work with distortion any more, which was a vital part of what Heligoland was about…..very sad about that, and sad not to be singing any more.
going out for New Years Eve bash now…..
Totnes Civic Hall, since you ask……best wishes to everyone everywhere
