wesley fuller – someone to walk around with…

Wesley Fuller has a new video for us all to watch and listen to – this is what the power pop by wonder has to say about the video…

I borrowed my girlfriend’s dog. She is an 11 year old Jack Russell called Abby. Although she’s getting on in age, she’s still got tremendous energy and stamina. She really enjoyed the walk. We had to call off the first day of filming as it was so windy that a big gum tree had fallen across the road and into my apartment block. We ended up spending the following day in Gisborne where it wasn’t quite as windy, and not too far from where I wrote the song. It turned out to be a cracking game of football, Golden Square edging out the Gizzy Bulldogs by a goal. The crowd could tell I wasn’t a local though, was copping bit of attention prancing around the place. I’m told that I strut when I walk, hence the term strut step.

Nadine Shah – Yes Men (Official Video)

go and vote today

Nadine Shah – Yes Men

Nadine Shah has shared powerful, biting new cut ‘Yes Men’.

The songwriter will release new album ‘Holiday Destination’ on August 25th, a powerful record that finds her pushing to the next level of her artistry.

New cut ‘Yes Men’ arrives with immaculate timing, a powerful take-down of the political elite just hours before the nation goes to the polls.

Nadine explains: “Any time is a relevant one to release a piece of work that deals with the subject matter that ‘Yes Men’ does, but this week, these upcoming days towards what could be the most important election this country has had in decades it seems so pertinent to the point that it’s violently vibrating with its own life.”

“‘Yes Men’ are the people that sell the lies and convince us that their enemy is our enemy, they’re the people who hide in plain sight behind bold typefaces on the covers of mainstream media outlets, the ones that would make us believe that the hand in power which is perpetually slapping you in the face is the hand that will someday pull us from a chasm of its own creation.”

“There is a war going on but it’s not the one the Yes Men will have us believe. The real war is the divisive untruths that the ‘Yes Men’ push into our homes with their aim being for us to tear ourselves apart simply to protect their own top dollar arses.”

vile as you want

more Man & The Echo memories…

Vile As You Want

The last of the four smart Alec-y pre-album singles, Vile As You Want, was an attempt to explain why political correctness isn’t necessarily a terrible thing. Given that most adults already understand that, we did the video as a kids show, directed by Manchester based production company Anattic.

We weren’t happy with an initial studio recording of this tune, so we took the drums and keyboards from an earlier version and rerecorded everything else in our practice room at Tuff Gong, with a bit of help from local production stalwart Lee “Latch” Parker and some more mixing from Neil “Comber” Comber dahn sahf.

Karen Elson in The Guardian and NME

Karen Elson released her album Double Roses last week and played a show at Moth Club in London – here’s a glowing review from The Guardian newspaper….the NME also spoke to Karen and here are the results…

Nadine Shah @ Omeara

Unlock Your Mind in The Blythe Hill Tavern

Man & The Echo in Margate in May

count me in…

i don’t give a….man & the echo

This song was written as a bit of a joke, and ended up being nearly everyone’s favourite. Gaz wrote it in about 20 minutes after becoming exasperated at some mundanity or ill informed opinion on one of the social medias that you’re reading this on. We recorded this ourselves in our practice room before Neil Comber finished it off with some expert mixing in swanky London.

The video was done by the very talented Layla Sailor who let us have a go on her dressing up box for the day.

PREMIERE: Man & The Echo – Operation Margarine

So Young Magazine have premiered Man & The Echo’s latest single, ‘Operation Margarine’.


Here’s a little quote from Gaz about writing the single…

Arranging and recording this song was the moment that the album sessions really took off. At one point we nearly dropped it as we just couldn’t work out how to play it, but Fush and Joey worked really hard to get the rhythm section right and give the whole thing this massive disco feel.


Ahead of the release of his latest single, ‘Right Time’, Selfie Boy sat down with FMS magazine to discuss his some great music.

‘I wish it could be 1965 again…’ Q Magazine

James Endeacott wrote a piece for Q Magazine on relaunching 1965 Records, signing bands and the 1965 family…

“Running a record label is quite a mad thing to do. The competition is fierce and, despite what people tell you, records don’t really sell anymore. It usually costs a load of money and the chances of getting it back are pretty slim but if you’re clever about it you can break even and you can have the time of your life.

I started 1965 Records almost ten years ago and was bankrolled by a major record label… despite having a Number One album withThe View within 12 months the label folded after three years as I’d spent a stupid amount of money and, guess what, not sold enough records. I kept the name of the label and went into a corner to listen to jazz records and to contemplate middle age, teenage kids and hangovers that last at least 48 hours. Maybe I should write a book and tell people of my life in rock n roll…

Over the last couple of years I’ve been writing the book and I’ve also come across so many good records and bands that I was starting to get itchy feet… I wanted back in the game. I was jealous of great records coming out and me having nothing to do with them.

here was only one thing to do and that was to get back on the bike and start peddling. I found like minded souls to help me re-realise my dream and here I am. The label is back – I have offices above a pub in the increasingly fashionable New Cross, South East London and two top music heads to keep us afloat.

We’ve signed a couple of bands and have our eyes on a couple more… it’s small steps but it’s exciting. The blood is starting to pump through the veins again – the passion is there and the heart is still beating. There is nothing better than seeing a band grow from a shitty rehearsal room through releasing their first record to getting mentioned in he music press and finally hearing them on the radio…

In order to spread the 1965 word we have also decided to put gigs on… I’ve heard people still go to live music so we should be ok there… the whole thing was a trip last time round but this time I feel the drink is going to be spiked more than normal… Let the rollercoaster begin – come and join me and the 1965 family as we try to make sense of it all…”
