Oh, to have witnessed that.
Well, here's the next best thing, until we get the whole filmed gig edited and fit for broadcast: a 5 minute promo vid we have made using footage of last week's gig.
A dynamic performance, Fit.
Very cool! When are you coming to the States?
Spacehog just offered us a couple of support slots, but we didn't think it was quite right for us.
here's an updated version of the Flies on You interview, with new info about their upcoming album and some new answers added in. Very good stuff!
Flies On You: Doug and Andrew interview
In anticipation of the new album, slated for release on September 19th and entitled "etcetera", we have released one of the new songs as a free download from our bandcamp site.
Here is the video for "Can You Smell That Burning Noise?"
It's already getting some really positive feedback, been played on the BBC... :sing1:
Have fixed link, I hope. Thanks, Edna
Beef, the link is wrong for me. I found this one: Flies On You-"Can you smell that burning noise" -
I don't know if it works for you...
I love the song!!
Yeah, Edna's link looks like the right one. Great tune and video. Love the bassline.
Great song. That's gonna be a hit.
Great work, BF and all. Very catchy! :sing1:
My Spanish friends are sharing videos of Flies On You on Facebook...
Hope some promoter sees them!
This week we have launched a video of another track from the forthcoming album.
The track is called "Katie Hopkins In Human Form"
Awesome tune! My favorite so far. Not just because of the catchy tune and great lyrics but also reference to the most irritating woman on earth. Wicked song all around! :rock:
Great song B-F. Love the lyrics. Who is this Katie Hopkins person?
That's a good song. Bizarre video.
Sorry for the delay in replying. Thanks to all for your positive, enthusiastic comments. :-)
Katie Hopkins is... she has somehow managed to carve herself a niche on TV morning chat shows as the token "all opinion, no intellect" snobby cow, and has a regular opinion column in the Daily Mail. She's a total viper but with neither the wit, charm nor intellectual substance to carry it off. She is a mouthpiece for spite, effectively.
To be honest, the song isnt really about her as such; but by adding the "Katie Hopkins in a human form" refrain towards the end, I can see how it gives that impression.
The lyric is more an observation of how the right-wing establishment media contemptuously views we ordinary people - "the great unwashed" - when we have the audacity to express any sort of opinion / discontent, as if we were guilty of having ideas above our station.
Maybe its a peculiarly British thing?
Thanks for acquainting me with Katie Hopkins, B-F. From what little, I've seen, she seems to be the British equivalent of Anne Coulter in the United States in terms of the controversial opinions she expresses. While I find her and Anne Colter odious creatures, it never ceases to amaze me that the news outlets continue to provide platforms for them to express their repugnant views. Perhaps if we all stopped responding to their idiocy, they would simply disappear.
Catchy tune, by the way.
Flies On You have a new video for the song "Hang-Dog", which is the opening track on the new album.
Flies On You - "Hang-Dog"
Caution: the video contains strobe-lighting and other potentially-distressing visual effects.
Album entitled "Etcetera" is finally released later this week, on Friday 6th March.
Thanks for the warning! Sounds cool... would be nice to watch. Don't wanna take chances tho, with my epilepsy & all
Great song B-F.
