Since the release of ‘The Bluest Blues’ and ‘My Museum’ on that record, Mr Ben has toured the UK with DIY legends The Lovely Eggs, played in session twice for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 Music, been on air all over the place, bought a new hat, eaten at least 17 pieces of toast and had a bath.
After all that, it was time to record some new stuff. Here’s The Happy Shopper EP, out on Bingo Records.
Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music (re: The Bluest Blues): “This is a great tune, I like it an awful lot. One of my tracks of the year.” “ Perfect Pop”
“It’s an intoxicating combination of excellently written melodies and perfectly fitting vocal strafes.” – Piccadilly Records, Manchester
‘Prolific, Lo-fi Pop type’ – Clash Magazine
With support from Sun Drift (AKA Zac Barfoot). Minor-key melodic dreams, with the sliding guitar trills and reverb-ed vocals carving a fuzzy line through the languid atmospheres and echoing bass wandering. With hints of Gengahr in his vocal delivery, he’s as laid back and carefree as the very best slacker pop.
The New Adelphi Club The Adelphi Club Hull is probably the most iconic music venue in the region, and one of the best for original live music. Bands from all over the region play music gigs here, as well as national and international acts, covering a wide range of genres.
