I’ll Surrender is a modern-day Roots Reggae/Dub 7″ single release from Renegade Connection AKA Gary Asquith (Renegade Soundwave, Rema Rema) & Lee Curtis (Lee Curtis Connection, Flavornaughts, Psyclops Trees).
Rock solid early 1970’s style roots with Gary Asquith’s sparse, succinct vocals on top, this isn’t some throwaway digital retread of past glories, rather it evokes and adds to that great tradition of Channel One/Dennis Brown/ Observer et al. Beautifully crafted, every note on the money and without an ounce of fat. 300-only one-time pressing, comes in a gloss disco bag with the label logo print and colour postcard.
Mourning Birds are back with their brand new riff-chugging heavy angst-throbbing garage punk rock ‘n’ roll single, ‘Leave Me Alone.’
Mourning Birds continue to fly high above the rest, somewhere between The Ramones and Dr Feelgood, and always with a full tank of petrol. ‘Leave Me Alone‘is 100% sweaty garage rock ‘n’ roll. LOVE IT!
The video was directed and designed by the up and coming Stephen James of ‘2Steaks Production’ and the high standards represent the progress of a band on the rise.
The band aim is to get across the energy that is put into the live show and with this audibly achieved by Rhys Downing in-between engineering Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars smash hit ‘Uptown Funk’ the achievement to match this success with such raw energetic imagery cannot be understated.
One day all rock ‘n’ roll will have this much energy… again!
The next big step in the Mourning Birds journey has finally arrived in truly glittering form. Through the brand new heights of last year’s Camden Crawl and The Great Escape Festival whilst riding off the back of BBC Introducing Single of the week recognition, BBC Radio 1 , BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio and NME coverage the band wrote and recorded their debut album which was then released via the notoriously reputable P-Vine records in Japan. The album will be available in the UK soon… I hope!
Mourning Birds will be playing in London @ The Black Heart, Camden on Thursday 5th March via Club Fandango (In association with Music Week).
