In 2007 I was asked to do a session for Welsh glam metal legends Tigertailz. The result was the title track of their album ‘Thrill Pistol‘. After that I did some gigs doing backing vox for the boyz, which included a festival in Bilbao in 2008 supporting such acts as Kiss & Ronnie Dio, and a gig in Italy supporting Europe & Whitesnake.
I went back into the studio with the ‘Tailz earlier this year and did backing vox for their forthcoming EP ‘Knives’
It’s been a horribly long time! Quite literally (and the actual meaning of the word, not the irritating and entirely wrong way people are using it currently!) I hope you’re all OK, or at least heading towards some semblance of ok!? I can’t say I’m entirely there yet – but I’m certainly in a loooooaaaads better place than I was a few months ago!
Not an awful lot of news, but Dr Fistlove recorded a few live demos straight after lockdown, and you can catch them on our new YouTube Channel Please give us a subscribey type click. We’re currently working on more new tunes.
I did a fab gig in Scotland with The Frank O’Hagan Band – which was like all my xmasses come at once after such a long time not playing live!
Have been rehearsing with The Skapa Collective, and there’s a gig in the pipeline really soon – watch this space!
Just put my vox down for the fab ‘The Naked Citizens‘ project – a space disco track, and did some backing on a gospel track, and a rockabilly tune. The album will be diverse to say the least! Watch this space!
Been doing loads of recording in deepest darkest Adamsdown, but can’t share owt about that just yet! *wink*
New originals project – ‘Knitwear Junkees’ coming on nicely – we’re writing some groovin tunes, and are looking forward to taking it out live when we got a few more songs in the bag. Knittin’s never quick is it!
Lots of new and exciting stuff on the cards at the moment! Met a fantastic band from up Blackwood way yesterday knocking out some seriously tasty funk. Recording a space-disco track with a couple of the Railroad Bill boys. Got some studio work coming up with the mighty Tigertailz! Groovy Uncle album in the midst of creation, and a good few gigs with the Get Ready! Crew! Tidy of the darts!
Delighted to announce that the new Chunk single ‘Got Up & Gone/Find The Morning’ will be released 1st September 2016 on sexy orange vinyl (download code included in purchase). First 100 copies bought from the website will have a lil something extra, so get on it! We’ll be taking pre-orders soon, so keep and eye out on my page and on the Groovy Uncle website. It will also be on sale in Cardiff’s own Retro Vibe Music shop on the High Street.
The Groovy Uncle collective are heading in to Ranscombe Studios tomorrow to record the new Suzi Chunk single! Very excited! Two killer tracks, which will be released on vinyl! I’ll be laying down the vox in a few weeks.
In the meantime you can still buy loads of Unc & Chunk earworms from the Groovy Uncle shop!
