Classic Rock14/11/2019

Not only is this Classic Rock Review of WHILE YOU STILL CAN beautifully succinct and flatteringly put together [the other bard of Salford is of course Dr John Cooper Clarke] but sits alongside two of my all time favourite artists Robin Hitchcock and Andy Partridge, the album is available right here right now… 


New reviews review…12/11/2019

Some smartly written reviews coming in over the last few days,  from John Clarkson at Penny Black Music, Shindig Magazine, a nice little mention in Record Collector and a review in SLAP MAGAZINE. And theres a new video release for QUESTION TIME [ taken from WHILE YOU STILL CAN] coming on 15th Nov 2019. I will post here there and everywhere then, any re posts tweets and likes and comments always appreciated, thus tis the modern way. On Sunday we rehearsed as a band for the first time in a long time for our gig at the Castle, Oldham Street , Manchester on 26th Nov, tickets for the gig available here, do come along do, it’ll be something of a nostalgic return to the city for me, the city I miss more than I care to admit..

I’m very pleased to say the new Vinny Peculiar album ‘WHILE YOU STILL CAN is out today Monday 28th October 2019 on 12’ Vinyl

It’s always a pleasure to finally arrive at the moment of release, to share the songs and the ideas behind them. If you’ve not bought a copy yet I gently urge you to. Early reviews have been pleasing, here are some excerpts…

Question Time – our favourite track – is a Smiths-like, jangly pop song, but with a lyric about a missing female politician, told from the point of view of a suspect under interrogation. Say it with Garage Flowers, Sean Hanan UK

On ‘Culture Vulture’ the driving art funk and ‘Screw you’ chorus are pure Bowie, that same 70s Young Americans/Lodger influence also percolating through the conspiracy theory ‘Scarecrows’ (“For every government covering its tracks there’s a body in a body bag”). 5/5 Mike Davies, Fatea Magazine UK

‘Scarecrows’ a wonderful mix of funk and pop, which swings like a train, sitting still is not an option’ Dutch Underground 4/5 Holland

“Question Time”, a song that actually sounds like a Tom Petty song with Johnny Marr on guitar. 8.5/10 Marc Gossenns,  Enola Magazine Belgium

‘Man Out of Time’ – a perfectly timeless post glam-rock song complete with killer slide guitar hooks, like Medicine Head meets The Arrows! Terrascope UK

We have a full band launch gig for the album is at The Castle on Oldham Street Manchester on Tuesday 26th November, I’m looking forward to turning up to eleven. Tickets are selling fast so get yours early, here’s the linkThe Castle is our favourite a small venue, you’ll need your ear plugs ha…
