|In case you missed it here’s the mail out I did to my online subscribers re the new album, links and gigs and such…
Greetings friends, website subscribers, diary readers, I hope this finds you safe and well in these challenging times. I’m very pleased to say the new Vinny Peculiar album ARTISTS ONLY is finally ready and available to pre order now via the website and via bandcamp. The album comes out 10th January 2022. The CDs are all pressed and ready to go, a vinyl incarnation is on hold for now but do watch this space. The artwork is by Paul Cliff and Dave Hulston, their beautifully sympathetic painterly-photographic collaboration complements the songs perfectly. The record was written during the first lockdown and feature songs inspired by some of my favourite artists including Rothko, Hockney, Perry, Bacon, Pollock and Warhol. There is also ‘Heavy Metal’ which was never quite finished in time for the ‘Return of the Native’ album, ‘Perfect Song’ made its debut in rehearsal at Salfords Lads Club back in the Joyce Rourke Gannon Knott era, ‘A Man and His Shadow’ is my lockdown balladand ‘Pathetic Lament’ goes way back to the ‘Goodbye My Angry Friend’ sessions.
‘A Bigger Splash’ the Hockney poster inspired lead track is available now to download as a single taster for the album. It’s a particular favourite of mine.Here’s a link You can also listen to the album via my website
Videos are currently at various planning/production stages but should be all ready to go in time for the release. Do check the website or my social media for updates.
Huge thanks to everyone who’s pre ordered so far, its really appreciated. I hope a few more of you will do likewise following this most gentle of reminders.
