Sometime in 2005
No news is good news
(and more soon)
1 January 2004
Yaaay a much needed site-update in honour of 2004.
It's less than a day into the new year, but already
I'm looking forward to forthcoming releases with
Thee Moths, lots of gigs and new
music with the
Electroluvs, and maybe even some brand new music of my own!
Happy New Year everyone!
The Soft Touch of Berlin Guitarfalling has been included in
the soundtrack of Italian film "Prendimi e Portami via". The film
is directed by Tonino Zangardi and stars Valeria Golino (Tom Cruise's
wife in "Rainman"). Apparently it's a rubbish film. (Apart from the
soundtrack of course).
Electroluvs gig news
Tuesday 13th May, King Tut's, Glasgow - T-break heats, doors 7pm.
NEW BAND+gig news!!!
Electroluvs popped up with an irresistable invitation to
become the new backing-singing keyboard-playing girl in the duo.
An astounding three rehearsals later and we're equipped
with a magnificent mixture
of Electroluv and Polopop songs and set for our first gig -
supporting Motormark at Dr Drakes, Shiprow, Aberdeen on
Saturday 3rd May at 9pm. It'll be an entertaining night! (one way or
Record release in Germany!!!
1000 limited-edition copies of the German
music magazine PNG (persona non grata) will come with a
free 7" vinyl record on 8th of May featuring work in progress of
a song called Fading Away being made with German
Firstly, Kaye is on the go again with a new, minimalist acoustic
sound and a couple of new songs to prove it:
Secondly, I wrote some nice lyrics and recorded some
very nice vocals for a song The Soft Touch of Berlin
Guitarfalling by Italian band Giardini di
Mirò. It's now available on 7" vinyl in the UK on
the Jonathon Whiskey label, 250 copies only and mail order only
Records. Look for it as Heidi Whiskey 28 (the flip
side features another great Italian band, Yuppie Flu). The song
can also be found on Giardini di Mirò's latest EP,
The Soft Touch EP. This is available on CD through their
usual label Homesleep in
Italy (also distributed in Japan and US). The song is beautiful,
the band is fantastic and it's WELL worth hearing if you can
track down a copy!
Actually no news really, just the nice new collaboration section! I'm
working gently on some new Kaye music, I've been listening to a
lot of Nick Drake and strumming my guitar. (Just not infront of
a microphone yet).
Along with my sister in a duo called Barbados Villa, I'll be singing
LIVE on the 21st July at a show in Edinburgh. Neither of us have
ever sung live before. We'll be opening a showcase evening of
four bands (not including us).. whipping up the audience into an
frenzy of excitement as they wait impatiently through our
acoustic strumming and humming for the bands they've paid to
hear. I can't wait.
Polopop.com is back in action! Please
browse around and mail me
if you find anything broken, wrong or bad. You can tell me if
you don't like the new look either, but I certainly won't be
doing anything about that for a year or two until I recover from
the exhausting experience of this update.
But now you can
catch up with some of the NEW MUSIC! There are several new Polopop songs, a new Polopop CD
Very Cherry, and
even a new(ish) Kaye song, Dream Angus.
New Kaye music will be on its way very shortly.
