MUSIC: BEARS DEN

Bears Den
Bear’s Den are celebrating their new album, ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’ and it’s well worth a listen! They have a sound that reminds me of Fleetwood Mac and their new album is an addictive listen..
This week.. they have entered the UK Albums Chart as the week’s Highest New Entry at #6.
The band’s debut album, 2014‘s Islands, was a true slow burning success, just recently reaching Silver sales status in the UK. It achieved this over an 18 month period, slowly building a huge fanbase for the group along with their consistently stellar live shows and wide radio support for the singles, Agape, and the Ivor Novello-nominated Above The Clouds of Pompeii.
Red Earth & Pouring Rain was released last week by Communion, and is off to a flying start internationally, too, with Top 10 chartings just announced in Holland (#5) and Belgium (#9) as well as charting as the second highest new entry in Germany this week (#26), while live dates across Europe and on Bear’s Den’s upcoming US tour are fast selling out.
The band’s Kev Jones told the Official Charts Company on hearing the news today, “We’re overwhelmed by how Red Earth & Pouring Rain has been received this week. We can’t wait to tour the album in the Autumn.”
Bear’s Den head out on their biggest headline tour to date in support of the album in November. UK dates are as follows (for full dates, see www.bearsdenmusic.co.uk)

DATING DIARY: CHIPS

DATING DIARY: CHIPS

He looks at my drink…”let me get you another!” and runs off toward the bar. He comes back with a full pint for me.. I look over at his glass.. only half full. Then back to my own. An overflowing curvaceous goddess of liquid gold full to it’s brim.

I grab his glass… and pour half of the drink he came back with into it before he can say…

Hey!!! Why did you do that?” he looks at me slightly angry. I don’t really understand why because they’re both the same drink. And I hadn’t even taken a sip of mine. Sharing is caring right?

I decide I won’t take a sip until he takes one first. I wait patiently. One minute… two minutes. Three pass. Four.. then FINALLY. 

He takes a gulp. Ok. Probably rohypnol free then. My green light to go. I drink my half with an innate awareness. Why is he going so slow…..It doesn’t take long. I’ve finished. And I get up to leave.

“Where are you going?” he glances up looking perplexed. I shrugAnd decide to culminate a less paranoid explanation… “Er.. I need to get some.. chips? Night!”. Chips, chips, chips, du, du, du, du, du. Mmmm chips Ci bum ci bum bum

Good luck my baby.

The band are rumoured to become one of the hottest cross over acts of 2014.

The Inspiration Series introduces the patrick james pearson band

Fresh from playing Glastonbury here is an introduction to The Patrick James Pearson Band – one of my ‘one’s to watch’.. one’s to watch rise that is… taken over by past Hard Fi/The Bluetones/My Vitriol’s Management – they have some experienced backing helping them up the greasy pole of the music industry. And we hope they make it (turns to cameralady: don’t we Sophie?). Here we discuss fascism/elitism/classism and music* (all very briefly)… also featuring Richard from Hard Fi…

*We hold no grudges against Peaches Geldof – we are simply using her as an example in the topic of debate.

Thank you to Sophie Lasson on camera!
