September 18, 2009. Paul Noonan and David Geraghty from Bell X1 stopped by our studio for a session to chat and play some tunes from the latest album Blue Lights On The Runway. They were in the area, playing later that night at the legendary Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ. When Paul and I got talking off mic, we chatted about cover songs (“I Fought The Law” by Sonny Curtis and Bruce Springsteen‘s “No Surrender” which he and David slipped in during this session). Leonard Cohen‘s name came up, and Paul talked about the Cohen show he recently went to. Hear my conversation with them and the three songs they did in our studio.

Apr 30 2010, 20:54 di IanARFollowing Fly Things Come In Threes? - Another in my occasional series of articles about spooky goings-on, on my profile.
Here's a screen-cap' of my three month's top eight artists, today ...
Notice anything odd? There're a few strange coincidences about this line-up. Here's a key image, to illustrate ...
Chaps grouped in the centre & ladies on the flanks. Julieta Venegas is about to be pounced on, by a bunny. Whilst Shara Worden is holding a bunny. Simian Mobile Disco bring a monkey (class of 'higher primates', to be precise), in their name. Run Toto Run are named after a cute li'll' running doggie. The Stranglers are riding a dragon. Then We Are Wolves and ... It's the Wolf! It's the Wolf!
What's the role of Imogen Heap & Massive Attack?
My Current Fav'e Releases / Tracks From These Artists
Julieta Venegas Otra Cosa / Amores Platónicos (other plays)
Simian Mobile Disco Cruel Intentions / Cruel Intentions (Greg Wilson re-edit) (other plays)
Massive Attack Heligoland / Babel (other plays)
Shara Worden The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton / Cocodrillo (other plays)
Run Toto Run Plastic Gold EP / Hater (other plays)
The Stranglers BBC In Concert (23rd April 1977) / Sometimes (BBC In Concert 23/04/77) (other plays)
We Are Wolves Invisible Violence / Paloma (other plays)
Imogen Heap Ellipse / Wait It Out (other plays)
What's the message in these tea leaves? I think this calls for an expert in Chinese astrology, or some-such! :/ %)
Apr 16 2010, 13:42 di eachmanThe Gavin Friday and Dave Ball collaboration single 'Ghost Rider' (Alan Vega) is now listed for release in May 2010 on the Blast First Petite website.
Blast First Petite
Jump Cut Time
Like there is No Tomorrow
The Big V calls time
Spooked Sci Fi crooning
Nothing lasts….. for ever
1990 Deuce Avenue album
Mr Friday ( T.G.I.F !!) Sharks swops blade-iswitches to Dave Ball’s Jets
A warp speeding cycle-arama-la-ma-ding-dong
Tom Brinkman’s 2005 steriodal muscle-bound dance floor twitch-out
Digitally body ripped the biggest star made to crash his own party.
Keep it clean, keep it TIGHT.
We spin ON !
Onwards / inwards
Into Vega’s millennial blackhole
Single handedly speed dialing up car radio statics with a jazz break crackle frosting…..
ON! Says V.
Sodium flares reflecting his deadly night shades
Puss On Tha Time Warp
1999 “2007” album
Apr 6 2010, 7:19 di eachmanRubyworks are delighted to announce the signing of singer, composer and artiste Gavin Friday to the label.
Gavin has been working on songs for a new studio album since 2008; co-writing with Cork based keyboard player Herbie Macken. The pair first collaborated for the Patrick McCabe play 'The Revenant' for the Druid Theatre Company in 2007.
Recording for the new album started last summer in Dublin, with producer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Moby, M83) at the controls. The record was mixed and completed in the UK in earlier this year; and is currently being scheduled for a late summer release. It will be Gavin's first solo album since 1995's 'Shag Tobacco'.
His recent work includes film scores for 'In America' and 'Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. 'Nothing Like The Sun' with Gavin Bryars for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and 'Drifting And Tilting' with Scott Walker at The Barbican. Plus ongoing live and studio collaborations with long time compadre Hal Willner; and the very special "An Evening With Gavin Friday & Friends", a unique event with a stellar line up at Carnegie Hall in 2009.
Gavin is in the process of putting together a new live band with a view to returning to the concert stage later in 2010.
