Take part in my Sell Your Future video

VIDEO SHOOT: Sat 7th July 10am-12

We’re shooting a video for the song Sell Your Future, for my new CRUMBS album. It’ll be in the underpass, between Decathlon and St Mary’s church, near the United ground, in sunny Sheffield.

  • Dancing/ hanging about looking beautiful/dim required. Come dressed how you like, but here’s a suggested scale of greatness:
  • 1 as you are
  • 2 dressed a bit businessy
  • 3 a bit hipster
  • 4 a bit ravey (just come straight from where you’ve been)
  • 5 punk
  • 6 John Bull with plastic Union Jack Bowler /kiss me quick hat
  • 7 business-punk
  • 8 woman/man of the cloth (no nuns, please – oh, go on, then, some nuns)
  • 9 punk-business-man of the cloth
  • 10 as you were or are

Would be so lovely to have you on the video for this, so invite whomsoever you like along 🙂 Brexiters very welcome too, despite my strong views and heavy lyrics on this one – you can dance along ironically. And no-one’s being signed up to my political party. As yet. Just two hours of crumbs and silliness with the Sieben band. I may even get cakes for you all. Well, crumbs…

Matt Howden – 18th June 2018

Don’t let the coldbloods take the stage…

Happy New Year to you! Had brilliant gigs in 2017, and hoping for more of the same this year. Not much in the way of gigs, to start this year – I’m trying to get my next album finished. I shall be in Colchester and Hannover at some point. And back to London, Croydon and Freiburg, possibly, too. Such is the beautifully odd nature of my varied gig list.

Crumbs From The Richman’s Table, my next Sieben album, is coming along nicely. I have ten tracks so far:

Crumbs / Sell Your Future / Just Be A Lot Nicer  / Forge A Better World / Sleep Our Dream / Post-Brexit Dreams Of Albion / Here Is The News / We Will Be Alright / I Will Ignore The Apocalypse / Coldbloods

Here’s a snippet of Coldbloods for you:

Coldbloods

Who let the hawks hang the higher ground? Who led the crows to circle round?

Starting to feel a little nervous now. (Don’t-let-them-near-the-switch-hey)

Who let the vipers take a hold? A slither of lies that became a road.

Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

Who let the primal shape control? Who let instinct steer the wheel?

Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

(Don’t-let-the-coldbloods-take-the-stage)

Who let the reptiles free their cage? Who let them loose on the modern age?

Who let the reptiles free their cage? Can’t just be me that’s starting to feel a little nervous now.

Still no plans for a release date. I want to write some more songs for this before its done. And properly make sure its exactly as I want it. And sit on it for a few months and try and do some proper promotion for it, for once. Though, I always say that and then when I get the copies made they start ‘burning a hole in my pocket’ and I itch to get them out there and heard.

Wishing you all the best 2018 🙂
