Vote for Me

The second video taken from the new album WHILE YOU STILL CAN [due 28.10.19]  is ‘Vote for Me‘, the track opens the new album setting the atmosphere before the noise kicks in. It was shot in a deserted garage beyond the beatific fringes of The Forrest of Dean by longterm VP collaborator Andy Squiff and features a blonde politician gently imploding. You get the idea. I hope you enjoy the track, and please do feel free to share the video. … Read More >>

The record seemed to take on a few political themes as the writing moved forward, I guess I’ve been watching and … Read More >>

Wedding Presence

I’ve just done a couple of shows opening for the wonderful Wedding Present, at The Mars Bar here in Worcester and at Waterloo Music Bar in Blackpool,  I’m pleased to say that both shows went  well. To be truthful I was only a fleeting WP fan, I have a copy of George Best on Vinyl but that was a far as I went.

Pleased to announce the new Vinny Peculiar album ‘While You Still Can’ gets a heavy duty Vinyl release in October after some last minute procrastination its ready and in waiting to be heard. It comes with a download card so you won’t need to wear your stylus out!  I’m really pleased with it, ten new songs, big noisy guitars, fatter drums and a harder rockier edge.
