For those who don’t know who BirdPen are, you will soon, and not just because we’re going to talk about ‘em for a bit here. Trust us.
For starters, Dave Pen launched this project with Mike Bird a few years back, and they’ve released two awesome albums (so far…). Both members have contributed to the writing on the last four studio records from the mighty Archive, and continue to write, perform and tour as part of that band. If you haven’t heard Archive yet, check this video link out. We’re obviously big lovers of BP, and of course, Archive.
Fortunately for us, the BirdPen guys are also fans of what we do, and it was a huge pleasure for us to do this remix of the anthemic ‘Saver Destroyer’ for them - we had a lot of fun with this one; best listened to when searching for some last minute motivation, we think. As ever, PLAY LOUD (prepare your ears for extra aural assault at about 5:25 too)!
This beast comes off of BirdPen’s awesome Rarities & Remixes album, and that’s available to buy at this link. Check it out and let us know what you think…?
More album news coming soon..
Start-up artists and creative types should take note too, as the article (check out the cuttings below) sees Stuart give a very in-depth and personal account about how he started out selling stuff on eBay, and how doing something like that has led to his global recognition. If you wanna know how to get things done, then look know further than Mister Semple!
We’re really pleased to unleash these extracts of our interview with Piano Magazine which has just come out! It was great to do, and we covered a lot of different topics over a few pages - from our origins, inspirations and ethos to touring with GN.
It’s an entirely DIY mag (and this one features other great bands like The Cribs and Loom) and so we want to make sure they can do another one - you can buy a copy at the following link: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/635950 and help to spread the creative love!
