Paul Weller – The Attic

Monday 23rd July 2012

Track Listing:

1. The Attic
2. The Piper
3. Sleep of the Serene (full version)

The Modfather is back, with his third single from his number 1 album ‘Sonik Kicks’. Due for release on July 23rd, ‘The Attic’ will be released as a digital EP, which will be backed by the brand new track ‘The Piper’, and the full-length version of album track ‘Sleep of the Serene’.

‘The Attic’ packs a melodic, yet atmospheric punch, and if you close your eyes, you might find yourself swimming through a kaleidoscope of emotions. This track relates much to those found on his 2008 album ’22 Dreams’. Weller describes it himself, as “lyrically, it’s a bit lovelorn”.

Lasting only two minutes, we’re quickly transferred from Weller at his most noticeable style, to a more modern, yet space age scenario with ‘The Piper’. Which is then taken in to a psychedelic instrumental with ‘Sleep of the Serene’.

 

Killing For Company – Former Mining Town

Wednesday 21st July 2010

On Monday 7th June 2010 Stuart Cable, aged 40 was tragically found dead at his home in Llwydcoed, Wales.

Stuart was an ex drummer for the Welsh band Stereophonics and member of his current group Killing For Company. Not only was he a music artist but also regularly involved himself in charitable events.

In 2002 he was part of a billboard campaign for Testicular Cancer Awareness and most recently completed a 50 mile Welsh Cycle Challenge for PACT (Parents & Abducted Children Together).

In honour of Stuart and the work that he has done, Killing For Company will be releasing the single ‘Former Mining Town’ on the 25th July 2010. Not only will it be dedicated to his memory but also all proceeds will be donated towards the charities, Teenage Cancer Trust and TÅ· Hafan, the family hospice for young lives.

The single was written in 2009 by the band, who have said:

“To think Stu won’t be joining us on stage anymore is a hard thought to face and although his passing is tragic, we hope to draw some positive from this difficult time. As a band, we are honoured and privileged to have shared the experiences we’ve had with Stu.

We will be releasing the single, ‘Former Mining Town’, and dedicating it to Stuart; he was hugely proud of the album and this track in particular. All funds raised will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and TÅ·· Hafan. Not only have we lost a rock legend but also a best friend and the heart of our band. The stage will not be the same without him.”

The single will be available to download from iTunes from the 25th July and all other major online stores.
