ARTISTS ONLY [pre order now]

ARTISTS ONLY by Vinny Peculiar

The new album ‘Artists Only’ comes out 10th Jan 2022, you can pre order CDs/downloads via the VP store or Bandcamp . Not sure if I’ll be doing it in Vinyl yet as the logistics costs and pressing times look ominous.  If you’re a Vinyl buyer and want to commit please do let me know, that way I can gauge demand and if enough people want one I can set the wheels in motion.

Thornton Plus

We had a lovely little gig at Thornton Hough last night, so good to catch up with friends and supporters, music fans, such a lovely rich array of people in one of my all time favourite venues it had been a long time coming. Eighteen months to be exact. Its nice to think we are heading back towards something like normal but I suspect the road will be long and complex. Around twenty people who bought tickets didn’t show, some … Read More >>

Thornton Gig 24th July 2021

Its been a long time coming but we are finally getting back to playing live this coming Saturday 24th July at Thornton Hough Village Club, Wirral which is such a great little venue and will be the first new band show we’ve done since getting together a few months ago. This means breaking out the effects pedals the new SG and making more of a racket than usual. The set will change accordingly and we’re all really looking forward to … Read More >>

Finishing Lines

New album working title ‘Artists Only’ is almost mixed and ready and to master, I spent a couple of days this last week tweaking and revising little parts, more guitars replaced and revisited, Matt Culpepper doing ever such a fabulous job on the sonic details and arrangements. And I really need a new bass as mine seems to have a bad case of pops and hiss, anyway, I replayed some at Matts so all good, and we’re nearly there which … Read More >>

All Back To Matts Place

Well its taken forever but I’m finally back at Future Primate Studio end of the week to finish the new album currently titled ‘Artists Only’ [like the Talking Heads song I hear you say and you’d be right]. I have done some of the work on this album remotely but I wanted to wait and do the more hands on stuff with Matt for these final mixes. Under normal circumstances this record would have come out by now but I’m … Read More >>

GONE – 2021 re release

Some good news…after some twenty three years GONE, the debut Vinny Peculiar album from 1998 gets a digital re release, initially via BAND-CAMP and coming to all the major platforms including Spotify April 9th. It took awhile to track down a copy as it sold out many years ago but luckily my good friend Pete Doyle found a copy in his loft and dutifully forwarded. Thanks Pete. Its been a little odd listening to it once again after such … Read More >>

A brand new live Vinny Peculiar mini album LOOT comes out Nov 6th 2020, a cause for celebration here at Peculiar towers as its the first live record I’ve ever put out. It still feels a bit odd to have spent three hours in a recording studio and to emerge with a fully formed record.  LOOT was recorded at The Old Cider Press Studio in Evesham by Pershore rock guru in chief Dave Draper on a Sunday morning in September … Read More >>
