not gonna like it, but in order to make things clear for fragile 2020's
people, from now on a part of my catalogue features a trigger warning:
formerly known as Glen Llewellyn Smith, thinks the world has gone
crazy. Amongst musicans on the album, you'll find the usual suspects
Hudson Silveira, hetpampa and yours truly. And Glen, of course.
Or should I say Lew Ellyn. World Gone Crazy is available on various online shops, like this one...
A few remasters are now available for you on Gilles' Bandcamp site, including the controversial 2001 demo Farewell To The Pulsar.
Friend and collaborator Brick Bosso released a new single, which happens to be an interesting cover from David Bowie.
, that you know as Glen Llewellyn Smith, co-wrote a new song for my
forthcoming album. And he just recorded and released his own version. "Something New In Waterloo
", that's the song. The B-side is called "Solitude
". And I play the keyboards on that one.
The whole single Solitude In Waterloo
Saturday 4th of March 1989 was recorded the first version of "Memories Of A Teenage Cat". It surely deserved a remaster for its anniversary.
Remember "Legs & Liquor" from MokoMoko Collection?
Sure you do. But the dub version? It was released a few months after
the album, and has just been remastered and finally gets the
international release it deserves. Try it on Spotify or any of your favourite online shops.
Happy Year of the Cat (or Rabbit) to my Asian friends! Do you remember the soundtrack of cat-minded people?
And happy Mardi Gras to the happy few (like me) who were bron on Mardi Gras Day...
You have the full Unboxing
collection? So you're familiar with my friends and collaborators
hetpampa, Bill Bayer, Glen Llewellyn Smith and Keith 'Brick Bosso'
Walsh. Those cats have news for you:
hetpampa released a new album, Alma,
featuring yours truly on two tracks, and a bunch of other guests,
including piano virtuoso Hudson Silveira. It's on the best online
shops, and your job is to click here and listen now.
Bill Bayer is launching a crowdfunding so he can pay his musicians on his forthcoming album Now. Support him (and his starving musicians) here and now (like the album's title)
Glen Llewellyn Smith
changed his artist name into Lew Ellyn
. He went to check into his tapes from 1999 until now and released them as Ark-Hive Collection
. Listen to Lew Ellyn's moving collection of songs here and now
is a busy guy. Between two shows of MindFree
, he records a song or two as Brick Bosso
, inclusing this surprising "Bodhisattva Kiss
". Check it and listen to it here and now
Author & music historian Peter Checksfield just released his Undercover encyclopedia of the 500 Rolling Stones covers you must hear. And guess what? Gilles' version of "This Place Is Empty" is included. Get your copy on Amazon
