“NonStopErotik” Out March 30th On Cooking Vinyl

April 1st, 2010

…”I finally came into possession of an old guitar someone had given me at a nightclub in San Francisco awhile back; Eric Drew Feldman had been holding it for me there on Haight Street. He convinced me that it looked cool (it was black) and had been given in the spirit of benevolence. Every time I picked it up a nice chord came out and so I lovingly cleaned it with red wine in the dressing room the following night and began to write. I told the tour manager that we would drive in my Cadillac directly to a recording studio in Los Angeles (and could he book one, oh, and a rhythm section, too?) from the gig in San Luis Obispo which would put us at the studio at about 4am. It all happened according to plan and we cut the initial tracks there in the wee hours over a few days, and then moved on to an equally haunted studio in London and Eric Drew Feldman joined us there and we finished the record in St. John’s Wood. Like I said the studio was haunted and I wrote many a couplet by candlelight in the studio accommodation, slept very little, and only felt the need to get the fuck out of there fast on the last night. The spirits had not ever bothered me, other than low drama moral support, but I was informed that they had heard enough and it was time to move on; plus I had a gig in Ireland.

When I was a boy the plant we boys called a fern was code for vagina, and to this day I love fern plants. In my heart the vagina is almost everything, and almost everything else could be summed up in what cock and seed have to offer; and everything else? The love of the father, dead or alive, the pain of too much pleasure, till death do us part, the voice of another song man from the other side, with or without God, Teri and the Possibilities, where ever you may be, the smell of sex in the air, seduced, slain, on my knees in prayer, sucking at the only thing that matters, my own personal Meret Oppenheim, I am Man Ray and I want you and to be all the way inside you, the cameras whirring as we put some elbow grease into the scene, the audience watching us in the dark”….

Audio Bullys LP out On May 18th On Cooking Vinyl

March 4th, 2010

Audio Bullys return with a new album on 29th March. Higher Than The Eiffel follows a four year gap since the pair’s second album, ‘Generation’ and sees Simon Franks and Tom Dinsdale recapture the energy and dancefloor instincts that made Audio Bullys one of the most successful UK dance acts of the previous decade. Mixing their love of house and breaks with an expansive cast list of musical collaborators, switching across dance’s myriad genres and throwing away the rule book has led Audio Bullys to make their finest record to date, a worthy successor to breakthrough debut ‘Ego War’ and follow up ‘Generation’, which spawned the massive worldwide hit, ‘Shot You Down’. 

Audio Bullys make no secret of the fact that the long gap between ‘Generation’ and Higher Than The Eiffel was in part down to that massive success. Having lost their way following the release of ‘Generation’, Higher Than The Eiffel sees the pair return to top form after a few false starts. Recorded in a six month burst through 2009 and made with the express intent of creating an album for their mates rather than a record company, to be ‘respected by the people that you want to respect you’ as Si puts it, the fourteen tracks range from the full on club stomp of lead single, ‘Only Man’ and rave anthemics of recent free download ‘Kiss The Sky’, to the psychedelic come down of ‘Daisy Chains’, the Chic guitar disco of ‘Dynamite’ and the ska stylings of ‘Goodbye’. The bangers are still here but this is a complete album, a journey through various dance musics, all held together by Si’s conversational lyrics and the little production twists and turns that are the hallmark of Audio Bullys sound.

Recorded and produced by the band with help from a cast of friends including Suggs and Mike Barson of Madness, Charlie Creed Miles and Si’s brother Jimmy, Higher Than The Eiffel is released on the band’s own Face Piece imprint via Cooking Vinyl on APRIL 27th on Cooking Vinyl.

After two years of stuttering, Audio Bullys had sprung back to life, the fourteen tracks of Higher Than The Eiffel laid down in that six month period. Album three, the album that had seemed so impossible previously, was duly finished and ready for action. More than a collection of like-minded tunes, more than a selection of beats to be played intermittently in DJ sets, this was the real deal, an album of highs and lows, a collation of influences from those classic songwriters through the myriad dance musics of funk, house and techno with a good dose of punk attitude and electro beats where electronics or live instrumentation took their place when it felt right rather than because that was how things had been done before.

Album now complete, the pair cannot wait to unleash it on the public and are looking forward to getting back in front of people live. Whilst there have been DJ sets in the meantime and a rare live showing in London, March sees Tom and Si take Higher Than The Eiffel on the road in the UK and they can’t wait.

‘We want to get back to that live thing and the buzz that goes around a live gig is a lot more fun than Djing where, no matter what you’ve done, there isn’t a focus. we really want this album to be presented live’.

Not long to wait but for now, welcome back Audio Bullys, stronger and wiser than before and back doing what they do best, making music for the joy of making music and sharing it with others. Let’s leave the last word to Si, with what pretty much is the Audio Bullys new manifesto, from ‘We Don’t Care’ to ‘We Do Care’ if you will. It’s been a long wait but Si and Tom are back

‘I love making tunes and that’s what keeps me alive, if we’ve made something that gives me a buzz that’s why you do it. We almost had to make a few things that didn’t work to remind us what it is that drives us. At times you start to think it’s easy to make music but it isn’t and it’s about capturing a moment and we’ve done that on this album’.
