NEW RELEASES: QUICK RECAP
Hello there fellow music lover, BEFORE WE SAY HELLO TO SEPTEMBER: here’s a look back at our August releases::
Underworld: Single ‘Always Loved a Film’: taken from brand new album ‘Barking’ (set for release September 10th 2010).
“A joyous return to form” – Q, July 2010
“Hottest Record in the World Right Now” – Zane Lowe, July 2010
‘Always Loved A Film’ is the first full single to be taken from Underworld’s dazzling new album, ‘Barking’. Given a global premier by Pete Tong on Radio 1, followed by a “Hottest Record in the World Right Now” from Zane Lowe, ‘Always Loved A Film’ is a collaboration between Underworld and techno producers Mark Knight and D. Ramirez, resulting in seven ecstatic minutes of pressure-cooked euphoria. Remixes include Solo’s percussive work out, Michael Woods’ deep and dubby epic, Breakage’s stripped back, minimalist version and DJ Madskillz’s bouncy dutch house. Following on from a barn-storming headline performance at The Roundhouse on a balmy July evening – as part of the iTunes festival – Underworld return triumphantly with their first new album in almost 3 years this September.
JOHN, SHELLY & THE CREATURES: Single: ‘FOOLS’ + bonus track ‘THE FIRST MOVE’. ‘FOOLS’ is a defiant twist of the multi faceted musical dimension of Belfast city’s: John, Shelly & the Creatures. Formed after a chance meeting they had in a bar in Berlin with two homeless Irish twins named ‘John and Shelly’…this Belfast foursome have been receiving critical acclaim upon the release of their debut Dinosaur earlier this year. With a list of new gig dates here, this band will continue to earn new fans and surprise old ones.

One year is becoming hard to sustain for modern bands trying their hand in the music business nowadays, so it is that little bit more impressive to know that in the past 20 years The Saw Doctorshave emerged as the most successful Irish rock band since U2. With a list of Chart success on numerous songs over the years such as well known favourites: “N17”, “I Useta Lover”, and more recently a cover of SUGABABES “About You Now”, (note that The Sugababes’ original version of About You Now stalled at No. 2 in the Irish Chart while The Saw Doctors reached No. 1!) plus many more, have helped The Saw Doctors maintain their defiant musical stance on the scene.
