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..


New Album Release Details & Reviews29/10/2019

In case you missed the mail out here it is, and thanks as ever for the support and for checking in here…

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


[includes a download code] Digi Pack CD, via the VP STORE or via Bandcamp. It’s also available to download from iTunes, Amazon and many other online music providers. It’s also streaming on SPOTIFY. 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…



I’m totally thrilled to report that the vinyl copies of the new album ‘WHILE YOU STILL CAN’ have arrived here and will be dispatched to all who have pre ordered on Monday14th October, thats a couple of weeks ahead of the digital release date of 28.10.19. The package includes a digital download code which should be available to utilise on the official day of release. I’ve played the record a couple of times here and it sounds great, there’s something intrinsically satisfying about the physicality of vinyl, the size and the artwork, the analogue warmth and all nicely coincided with National Album Day. The artwork for the album is by Paul Cliff, long term VP design associate, do check back here or check social media nearer release date for more background information on the art behind the music. The record is available to buy on Vinyl or Digi Pack CD from the VP website and from Bandcamp  please do  support  it if you can. Here’s the  ‘Vote for Me’ video, in case you missed it earlier, the track starts the album.  Best wishes VPx
