Tag Archives: you want some?

You wait patiently for one apocalypse, then two come along at once…

Unprecedented times. With that in mind, and all my European dates wiped off the map for the next few months and with who knows what disruption later in the year, I’ve had to change some plans.

Having just finished the new Sieben album 2020 VISION, I’d planned to sit back for a bit, send it off to manufacture, get CD copies back, send them to press, all in time for European dates and tour with a September release. With things they way they are, I’ve decided to push the album release forward to May 1st. No point it being upstaged by an actual apocalypse, I guess.

I’m planning on adding it to my Bandcamp, and then Spotify, iTunes etc if I can make the deadline. Some videos are in commission already.

I know this is of little consequence with what’s going on in the world currently, but to me its my livelihood and sanity! So, I will carry on. With us all possibly in self-isolation for the foreseeable future, I thought I’d add the album as “pay what you like” – so if you have no money you can still have the full album. (*NOTE: I tried this, but it wouldn’t let me do this with pre-orders, so will be offering free download codes to those with no money – simply email me if that’s any of you 🙂 ) And I have you as a captive audience! Had planned to do CDs, but for now this will have to suffice. Without the gigs I have no money to make the CDs

Keep well out (in) there, and see you on the other side. My ray of hope is that many people may question the nature of the modern way of living our lives, the rat race, the pace, the “endless more” of the society we inhabit. Or they may talk about loo roll. Either way, I’m going to try and add some content online when I can, in an effort to keep people’s spirits up. 2020 VISION may be my most apocalyptic work, but its upbeat and chirpy, irreverent and bouncy – we’re not counting the lyrics, here, right? 😉

Keep well and be nice,

Matt – March 2020

video shoot for ‘You Want Some?’

Those of you in and around Sheffield, come and be in my video!

The Brothers Arms, Wells Rd, Heeley, Sheffield. 10am-12 midday Sat 23rd Feb 2019

For this video shoot I’m after a mob –  an angry mob, a bemused mob, a passive mob, a confused mob. No acting skills required, but in your minds you should each ‘channel’ the following:

A no-rules bun-fight with sharp chunks of old rye

Piles of oiled walruses pouring through an impossibly narrow gap

Grasping chancers making a grab for land and power

a laughing industrialist

Two bald men fighting over a comb

a 52/48 split in your bum crack

Feel free to bring along your own prop that best describes Brexit to you.

Here are the song lyrics:

You Want Some?

Want some? You want some? Everything must go! Despite a Boaty Mc vote race, the overlords still sit in place. The Great British cake-off , the ‘fuck your own face off’. Everything must go. The new rules are a cinch, ignore the small print, do not flinch. They really just want zero contact, here’s a brand new zero contract. Everything must go. Welcome to the Great British bring and buy sale! I hear Europe wants to ban trumpets, Matt. I hear they’re straightening the good old British banana. You can’t even keep a lion these days. Political correctness gone mad, I call it. Ah, zee famous English sense of humour. Under EU directive 777, there shall no more trumpets on British records. Crumbs from a rich man’s table, a little bit of Britain, while you’re able. Not much left, its dirt and fluff, come on down, get the good stuff. Everything must go.

A flurry of crumbs…

Thank you for your orders. I’ve packed them up, complete with a packet of actual crumbs (and a crumbs sticker, too) and they’re going out in the post – with my appreciation and gratitude. You people are the lifeblood of what I do, and make it possible for me to be continue doing it 🙂

CDs will be with you soon. I’m off to the post office with them in ten minutes time. If anyone is coming to Art Of Dark Days  festival in Cologne this weekend I will have some for sale then too:) And in Hannover, the week after. Actual proper release date is 3rd August, at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool.

Thank you again.

Matt
