Silver Meadows & Hay Festival22/05/2017

A couple of dates of note coming up. On Tuesday 23rd May SILVER MEADOWS the musical gets its stage debut, an initial dress rehearsal run through trialling the play with live band. If you fancy coming along please do, its a free event at The Joe. H. Makin Drama Centre, Liverpool L1 9BG in collaboration with the Liverpool University Drama Team.  The play starts at 4pm with doors at 3.45pm. I realise this is quite a difficult time for people but if you can wangle it we’d love to see you there. All feedback welcomed. The stage play has been written by Liverpool Writer Ian Salmon, its based on the characters and stories from the songs. I think he’s done a great job but seeing it for real will be a very different experience and one we are hoping to build on. All feedback is welcome. Silver Meadows is available now to buy on CD from the VP website and from all the usual digital platforms, reviews and listening posts.

On Tuesday 30th May Rob and I play The Hay Music Festival, we are on at 4.30 pm in the BBC Tent, its part of BBC Introducing. Its a free event, so if you can come please do, the event if filmed for the BBC Website and the music played on BBC 6 over the coming months. It should be a nice little gig five songs and some chit chat with DJ Andrew Marsden. Its a ticketed free event. Tickets here.

Until then…VPx


The Fairer Sex EP16/02/2017

Hello everyone, here’s some good news, there’s new music on the way THE FAIRER SEX EP’ comes out 17th Feb 2017After some time spent in the analogue vaults I’ve remixed three tracks from a session I did at Whitby Studios in March 2016, with Paul Tsanos [Drums,Backing Vocals] Bobby Kewley [Bass, Backing Vocals] Rob Steadman [Keys, Backing Vocals] and Maaike Ghijsels [Vocals] – at the time I was planning a new album [post Silver Meadows] but the direction of travel changed, I moved back to the Midlands and set about the WR3 recordings which are ongoing to date…this left me with tracks from the Whitby sessions that didn’t really have a home for so a year later I’ve remixed the ones I liked and after some tweaking and refining here they are..Trial by Lingerie is the exception to the rule here, a light hearted look at a time honoured scenario recorded at home. I think the tracks complement each other well, I hope you like them – heres are the tracks/ press release/artwork/video…

Vinny Peculiar ‘The Fairer Sex’ EP


Release Date 17.2.17

Format Digital: All Platforms

I Came Back As A Girl

2 House Of Girls

3 No Reply

4 Trial By Lingerie

The Fairer Sex EP is a gender-linked identity confused sexually deviant positively humiliating four-track collection of songs from UK outsider artist poet and songwriter Vinny Peculiar.

‘I Came Back As A Girl’, is an identity switching fantasy of reincarnation, a transitional re awakening…

‘House of Girls’ from the webcams of desire to the Jacuzzi’s of the absurd with Hefner, String-fellow and the usual suspects…

‘No Reply’ a gentle plaintive piano ballad, simply sadness loss and resignation…

‘Trial by Lingerie’ a lighthearted look at male humiliation in an M&S Lingerie department, oh dear….

 ‘NO REPLY’ was shot by long term VP collaborator Andy Squiff [ Pop Music Football and Girls, English Village, Hospital Wing]. We are really pleased with it. Please like share and comment do. The EP can be downloaded from Bandcamp and is coming soon to all the other digital platforms…

Thanks for supporting as always, your spreading the word is massively appreciated x
