NEW MUSIC: The Red The White and The Blue and Robin Grey

The Red The White and The Blue are Paul Cronin on guitars, Ed Loades on vocals, Rick McMurray (Ash) on drums and Taka Hirose (Feeder) on bass.  

Delivered as a music/comic combination entitled ‘The Balloonist’, this is a story about a love triangle between two feuding brothers and a girl that turns deadly told over ten songs which will be released on the 1st of every month. The band also promise to keep us on our toes with surprise guest appearances and hidden content. Here is video number one entitled ‘Crisis’…

Here is a wonderful video featuring much beloved folk artist Robin Grey. It’s called Mariam’s Cake and the video was created by Ronnie Le Drew (who also worked on Labyrinth and was Zippy in Rainbow).

We love it Robin. We love it.

I  just went to see Robin Grey headline at the Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell. An intelligent and amusing East London writer, performer and promoter (I used to live next door to him which is now not so easy as he lives on a Canal Boat)..

 I’m hoping to film him soon for ohDearyme – but for now check out his music here:


Apparently that bloke Jarvis Cocker played him on BBC6 Music on Sunday. And I feel honoured to also preview him on my site. Signed to independent label Oilbug (an independent label run by four people in  a  Cambridgshire farm house in the middle of nowhere – and I’m told it’s as weird as it sounds.. I want to go there!). Here is Neil Cousin (pictured below) who releases his full album ‘Bonfire’ on the 5th November.

Also on my radar – is Whisper Gallery and XOYO present ‘The Boombox Project’ launch night with Das Racist gig on Thursday 1st December at XOYO 32-37 Cowper Street, London EC2A 4AP, 8pm.

The Boombox Project is the first time New York based filmmaker and photographer Lyle Owerko’s prints will be displayed in the UK (apparently the V&A recently acquired one of Owerko’s boomboxes for their permanent collection).

Whisper Gallery is run by Jamie Wood and represents excellent contemporary artists such as D*Face (I’ve never forgotten D*Face’s exhibition in Old St a few years back – blew my mind). If you cannot afford the £12 don’t worry because Lyle Owerko’s work will be free to view at the Whisper Gallery from the 9th December until the 14th January.


And last but never least I’m also recommending Peggy Sue who have just dropped their album Acrobats. Here is a peak from the Bands in Transit crew here:

Did you get to the end of my epic post today?! Or have you wondered off… well….. if you’re still here I will leave Tuesday’s thought with a quote:

Far far away in a distant land…across the ferocious seas….somewhere near ‘Stillwater Regional Airport’ in Oklahoma – there are four men and a lady making hauntingly mysterious sounds together. I was intrigued by these sounds. And these men. And the lady.

Listen to the single For 12:

Describe your music to those who haven’t heard of you in five words:

Layered, percussive, ambient, orchestral, melodic.

Who does what in the band?

Jesse Tabish – Lead Vocals, Piano, Guitar (me)
Jonathon Mooney – Violin, Trumpet, Guitar Piano
Jenny Hsu – Cello, Violin, Vocals, Autoharp
Josh Onstott – Bass, Keys, Percussion
Colby Owens – Drums, Clarinet

Where does the inspiration come from for your music?

This latest record took a lot of inspiration from classical music. The inspiration for the subject matter comes from a number of things like the landscape around us, or historical events.

Did you know you had talent? 

I feel like talent is pretty insignificant compared to time. I just knew that I loved music and, therefore, put a lot of time into it.

Who would your ideal festival line up be?

Max Richter, The Ramones, Neil Young, Steve Reich, Phillip Glass

Is the cup half full or half empty?

Half Full

What is the meaning of life?


‘Tamer Animals’ will be released in the UK on August 29th
