SnC 162 – Wed 08 Apr 2009
Recovery from Podcrawl is progressing as quickly as can be expected. The day started wonderfully well for Jeremy G and I at the very welcoming Market Coffee House near Spitalfields Market in London. Apparently a former market pub (from when Spitalfields was a proper market with pubs all around to quench the thirst of market porters, often from very early in the mornings) it is now meeting the urgent needs of caffeine starved podcasters. You’ll find it at: www.marketcoffeehouse.com/Since I was driving it was a day of light drinking but it was still a blast and very tiring.She blows my socks off – Too Slim and the Taildraggers (USA) On Burnside Records.

Pluralizing his name and using it as the nom de plume for his projects alludes to the kind of musical schizophrenia from which Danforth suffers. His head is filled with so many sounds, structures and ideas that he is forced to allow each voice to have its turn at the helm. The Danforth hone perfectly amalgamated quirk-pop to a more mature conclusion. Combining found sounds, field recordings, synth and guitar-led songs, they craft lo-fi psych pop that Ink 19 called "an orchestral, angular, epic take on panoramic sunshine music like some long-lost Elephant 6 track calling in from the twilight zone."

Old School Funk/Rock and Blues – Meets new School Sounds. The result…..Memphis Nights.I started off in the city of Melbourne, Australia, and fled to the country for "The peaceful life". The deal was to hibernate for a decade or so, and it was there in my little van in the High Country that I wrote and recorded on cheap audio cassettes.About 350 songs later the quiet life went loud.Emerging to put together a 4 piece swamp/rock band: "The Swamp Cats", we played for 5 years in just about every backwater bar, party and major festival that was going at the time, and its was during this time I was given the name of Memphis Nights because of the American influences and style of music. Having such a large number of originals and having played the regional circuit for so long I soon out grew the scene and needed bigger and better things.At the end of 2003 some guy in a suit convinced me to head back to the city, having to leave the band. So, as a soloist with my Bass guitar and my own recordings, I played with a variety of musicians and played at all levels and classes of venues achieving minor successes, while pursuing a market for the recordings.The market in Australia is a strange one….in 2008 I made my voyage to Europe. Armed now with 5 finished albums and a new hunger to re-invent and re-launch again. Working with new musicians and a fresh look, I record and and plays live with a new band while looking to market the music to Europe, Asia, America and beyond.With a blues voice, working with drum and bass techno samples, I’m half country – half city. A guy who had to escape the small alpine Australian country van for Europe….www.myspace.com/memphisnightswww.cdbaby.com/memphisnights
