Yes, you may – possibly – have seen these folks getting jiggy with the dumb judges on X Factor recently (look it up, it was all over the press) but before all that happened they invited me to do a remix, and hell, why not ? Yes, it’s got a vocal on. No, it isn’t ‘ambient’. But hey, be brave, explore new territory… it’s a slice of fun, enjoy ;)
Seems the mystery that kicked off Erebus & Terror, by David Bickley & Tom Green, is now solved. Well, half solved.
Further info concerning acoustic side-project Newanderthal…
If you’re heading for WOMAD this w/e, swing by the Taste The World venue, noon Friday. Newanderthal will be providing a little musical accompaniment to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony. If it’s anything like other Ethiopian coffee I’ve had, it’ll be Damn Fine Coffee. Damn fine music, too.
Just scored the next film – “Happy Thoughts” – from Layke Anderson (director) and Jean-Paul Berthoin (DP) of Little Cricket Films, who made the awarding-winning Dylan’s Room (which featured Erebus & Terror)
Fingers crossed this one hits the spot as well – further info at the FB page below
