Billy Bibby&The Wry Smiles - Single Launch
Published:
Description:
Image may contain: one or more peopleWe've followed the ascendancy ofBilly Bibbysince he started to plough his own furrow on departingCatfish and The Bottlemenand the formation and transformation ofBilly Bibby& The Wry Smiles.

So we're delighted to be featuring news of the new singleWar Of Onehere onRalph's Lifeand Brian will be playing the single on theRadio KC Indie Showon Sunday April 29th between 5 and 7pm.

Billy had this to say of the new release:

"War Of Oneis another upbeat rock song that I personally loved writing because I just know that live it's gonna be a blast to play for mine and the band's sake, and I'm sure from the audience perspective too," 


Image may contain: 4 people, people standing and shoesBilly mused further:

"Any fans of rock music are going to want to be hit with a wave of sound that fills their hearts with joy and tears them down with its sheer power and driving force behind the amps, and that's what I am hoping this single will bring to the fans. I always want to keep an element of secrecy behind my lyrics so that you can all create your own thoughts as to what they mean to you."

"For me, it is simply about the war between you and you alone and how you deal with certain normal issues in life. Hence why it's calledWar Of One. As depressing as that may sound I always try to make light of it and write positively so it's far from being a negative song!"

No 1: Acrylic




Once in a while some new music comes along that transports you back to when you first heard a new release by a band that later becomes a true classic. 

Such was the occurrence on first listening to the upcoming EP release by burgeoning Scottish Alt-Popsters Acrylic

Listening to their All I AM EP transported me back to first listens to the likes of The Blue Nile and their near incomparable release Stay







No 2: Brownbear


Image may contain: 1 person, beard and close-upWhat is Home? is the debut album from Brownbear. Combining strong melodies and indie riffs that have come to be expected from the band with an added lyrical maturity, the album covers love, loss and life whilst questioning what exactly home is. The album is preceded by an addictive and accomplished single release by the band in the shape of Truth Without Consequence which is accompanied by an equally accomplished and stylish video.

Brownbear are a four-piece indie-rock outfit led by singer/songwriter Matt Hickman.








No 3: Bugeye


No automatic alt text available.
Having made a splash in 2016 and 2017 with airplay from luminaries such as BBC 6 MusicSteve Lamacq and rave reviews from the likes of God Is In The TV, female fronted, disco-punk band, Bugeye, return with their new single, I?m Not the One and a UK tour with sold out shows.  

Taking obvious inspiration from early pop punk bands such as, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Altered Images with a visual nod to David Lynch and punch-drunk productions, I?m Not The One sees the band take on a slightly darker pop approach.









No 4: The Kut

Brian's favourite video this week is Made Out Of Maps by Wojtek The Bear.

Made Out Of Mapsis the first single from the eagerly awaited debut album byWojtek The Bear,A Talent For Being Unreasonablewhich is due for digital and vinyl release onScottish Fictionrecords on May 25th.

After setting the British guitar music scene alight with their riff-filled debut EP, hedonistic Hastings quartet Kid Kapichi return with their much vaunted EP Lucozade Dreams which is released tomorrow March 30th).

Having received support from the likes of Kerrang TV, MTV Rocks and London Evening Standard with their eponymous breakthrough debut EP, the rising indie rockers were being tipped off by industry experts as ones to watch.












For the last year Spring Break have been working on their debut album Tropicaledonia; a fusion of many styles, drawing influence from a rich palette of folk, funk, blues and jazz whilst all the while steeped in the cut and paste traditions of hip hop. 

Spring Break hope the musical diversity of the record will appeal to a wide range of tastes as it draws from the varied backgrounds of all the band members and collaborators. 











Image may contain: one or more peopleThe Velvet Hands have long time been favourites for plays on the Ralph's Life Indie Show on Radio KC over the last few years and with the imminent release of a debut album on limited edition blue vinyl for Record Store Day and general release May 5th it would be rude not to check it out here on the blog. 

We'll be featuring Sick Of Living on Brian's Indie Show on Radio KC Sunday 29th April as a pre-release spin of a track from the album Party's Over.
The Bordellos
Published:
Description:
If you're looking for some honest music you need look no further than theDebt Soundsalbum by St Helens bandThe Bordelloswho have embraced the brutalist ideal with this latest release, gripping on to their non-conformist honesty with a vice-like grip.

The Bordelloscould be described as the Howard Hughes of the music world with live performances like hens teeth, however I can announce with no small degree of delight that they will be performing for a second time in support ofMusicians Against Homelessness.

At the humble behest ofRalph's Lifeon May 19th in the Ruskins Sports and Social Club, St Helens along with another 12 bands and artistes they take the stage with all monies raised going to homelessness charities.






Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, night and indoor
Their idea behind theDebt Soundsalbum was to get back to basics, so Brian Shea informs us that he set down these ground rules: 

1. All recorded on old tape 4 track, using microphones and recording equipment bought from pound shops and cash convertors for under£5.

2. All tracks recorded on 4 tracks only no overdubs.
  
3. All vocal tracks would be first take only even if disaster struck whilst recording ,so a lot of these songs have only ever been sang once.  

4. All songs recorded would have been written that week . so the rest of the band would never have heard them before recording.

5. every song started would be completed that night so no going back. 





Image may contain: 1 person, playing a musical instrument, sitting, guitar and indoor
Brian further elucidated:"It was recorded over 10 consecutive Friday nights during that 10 weeks. There were two romantic break ups (the two ex girlfriends actually sang on some of the tracks to add to the spice), and only just before the start a marriage had also broken up. There was lots of alcohol consumed lots of madness. It is the sound of four people going out of their minds."

"Looking back, I wonder how Dan managed as he only turned 17 during the recording of this album, but his teenage angst mixed with our midlife crises made for a very dark work of art. 

This was supposed to be our thirdBrutarian Records release, but a label that boasted in its bumph as releasing noncommercial uncompromising music refused to release it as it was too uncompromising and noncommercial." 

"I have very fond memories of this LP; recording it was an experience that was only matched in madness when recording ourRonco Revival SoundLP."

It's been great to see our hard work pay off, and we can't wait for more of the same in the future!?


Co-frontman Dan Able said of the up-coming single release:Gimme Some Time is about self destruction, coming to terms with one?s own morals and the questioning of what one believes in.

Brian's favourite video this week isEyes Of Steelby Déjà Vega which sees the band hitting new heights of alt rock glory.

Filmed by Shari Denson and Stuart Hadfield.

Déjà Vega consist of vocalist and guitarist Jack Fearon, drummer Tom Webster and bassist Michael Newton. 

After forming in Cheshire, they made the short journey to Manchester, a fitting backdrop to their gritty, guitar led psychedelia, with its red-brick and cobbled streets which has very much ingrained itself in their soundscape.

Image may contain: 3 people, people standing, plant, sunglasses, flower, beard and outdoorSpring Breakare a three-piece hip hop collective who invite us to join them on their journey of ambitious diversity whilst they explore a broad palette of influences that they've marinaded in a melting pot of multiple genres. The result is one of the best albums I've had on repeat so far this year.

They cleverly fuse those influences into the deliciousTropicaledoniaalbum in a Ralph's Life favouritesStanley Oddstylee who they've previously toured with and it will provide the soundtrack of my summer.

A nascentSpring Breakevolved atBelladrum2014 where the band were organically assembled to play on the Burke and Hair stage. A winter in Thelonious Rumpus'studio birthed the spring time release of 2015'sDeparture LoungeEP. 

A hectic summer of festival appearances, with national press coverage, radio and tv appearances and an advert forBowers and Wilkinsspeakers. 

A busy year was jubilantly capped off with aSAMAaward for Best Hip Hop act.

Spring Breakhope the musical diversity of the record will appeal to a wide range of tastes as it draws from the varied backgrounds of all the band members and collaborators. 

Lyrically it's a highland reportage on the human condition; detailing daily stresses, mental health, drinking culture and addiction, small town mentality, lampooning back stabbers and the foibles of the industry and pointing a clown gloved finger at toxic masculinity.
