Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson

(Old time blues with Celtic tones) Album ‘Wiley Ways’ out Fri. June 1st + Nationwide Irish Tour Dates Announced including Electric Picnic, full Uk tour and tour support for Jools Holland.

“With Wiley Ways, Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have crafted as genuine a blues record as you can hope to find in this day and age – simple, powerful, full of the inherent realism we’ve come to expect from these two, a stellar effort” – Samuel J. Fell (Rolling Stone).

The process of this album has been, up to date, one of the most enjoyable experiences Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have had in making an album; what with banging bed pans and packing Cigarette box Pedals into old leather glad bags for that sought after sound. It has been a shared passion for their music that has molded this album lovingly track by track.

Now they want to share this personal experience of their scrawls and ramblings they have created late into the many early hours from their shed in the bush and long dark nights on the road with the rest of the world.

This dynamic duo is a unique combination that have skillfully combined their music of hill style country blues with old time folk, which has seen them become firm favorites’ on the international festival circuit. Their material is original yet crosses the boundaries as if written from a time once forgotten. ‘Wiley Ways’ will be released June 1st and will be available in all record stores and on iTunes.

A Plastic Rose announce new single, Tour dates and Kerrang awards show in London!

No Comments

A Plastic Rose have just announced their second musical offering of 2012; ‘BOY RACER’ (Release date June 15th in Ireland/ 18th in Uk). Taken from their eagerly awaited debut album titled: ‘Camera.Shutter.Life’. The album was produced at Manor Park by Neal Calderwood (General Fiasco, Fighting With Wire) and will be released in the summer of 2012 on DidiMau Records. (Rel date TBA)

Fresh from Supporting Snow Patrol on a handful of their arena tour dates, the spectacular and ever ‘EPIC’ (Irish Times) band ‘A Plastic Rose’ are the name on a lot of people’s lips at the moment.

Widely seen as one of the most exciting prospects to emerge from the increasingly fertile Northern Irish music scene, the band have been instrumental in uniting artists and gig-goers alike, knowing that there is great strength in a united front.

On ‘BOY RACER’; the band have yet again captured the sound that makes them such a favourite amongst audiences. Defined by their individuality and with talent aplenty, APR are proving that behind the band’s ability to bring people together, there is some serious edgy song writing skills at work.

Camera.Shutter.Life’ calls to mind the aggression of Rival Schools, the dark mystery of R.E.M., the emotional intensity of Biffy Clyro, as well as the fist-pumping choruses of the Foo Fighters.

Gig dates just announced including a UK tour + Portugal date:

Exclusive Stream of Marilyn Manson new single ‘NO REFLECTION’

No Comments


(COOKCD554) April 30th (27th in Ireland) 

Hear the lead single “No Reflection” (FRYDL509)

Los Angeles, CA…Marilyn Manson continues to upend the mainstream with each new release, and his upcoming album Born Villain is about to take that a bit further on April 30th, 2012. Evidence #1, the single, “No Reflection”: http://bit.ly/mansonnoreflectionsoundcloud

KROQ debuted “No Reflection” yesterday and the lead single will be available exclusively on iTunes this Tuesday, March 13th. Blabbermouth was first to catch the premiere, reporting that the song’s chugging, faint-friendly distortion offers plenty of sonic waves for Manson to glide over reminiscent of glory-era Ministry.

“The new record put simply has the ambition and determination of how I started making music in the first place,” Manson says. “It sounds like the first record in that it’s not afraid to do anything. I had to remove myself from my lifestyle and start fresh.”

“It doesn’t really sound like any of my old records,” Manson says in an upcoming Revolver magazine cover story. “In fact it sort of sounds like what I listened to before I made records — Killing Joke, Joy Division, Revolting Cocks, Bauhaus, Birthday Party…It’s very rhythm-driven. I think this will probably be the grandest concept record of all.”

The tumultuous relationship Marilyn Manson has cultivated with the public through his genre-defying music and anti-status quo message of thinking for oneself has resulted in sold-out tours, protests, legal battles, adoration, hate, more than 50 million records sales, award-winning distilled spirits, several Grammy nominations and, most importantly, a long list of some of the most enduring and powerful singles ever, such as “Lunchbox,” “Get Your Gunn” “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” “The Beautiful People,” “Antichrist Superstar,” “Tourniquet,” “The Dope Show,” “I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me),” “The Fight Song,” “Mobscene “Heart-Shaped Glasses,” “Coma White” and “If I Was Your Vampire.”

Born Villain will be released on Cooking Vinyl and Manson’s own label Hell, Etc.  Marilyn Manson has had astounding success across the globe including three albums being certified platinum and three more certified gold in the USA, in addition to three top ten albums and two number-one albums (Mechanical Animals and The Golden Age of Grotesque).
