Big Special are sharing a brand-new single, "Desperate Breakfast", a marriage of bludgeoning percussion and buzzsaw synths that lays out the next chapter of a band manifesto that - only three singles deep - is already making converts of many. The follow-up to this summer's "This Here Ain't Water" - which landed on the BBC 6 Music A-list - "Desperate Breakfast" kicks against the mocking "put up and shut up" mentality that broadcasts itself under the guise of being "character building."
The way singer Joe Hicklin's brimstone-fired voice marches from guttural punk barks and serrated spoken word to soaring soul and back again, is a form of alchemy that only he knows how to conjure. It's an approach siphoned from their forebears, crushed under the weight of history, and retooled for a new generation. Hicklin's magnetic presence on the track walks us through a vision of dilapidated smalltown high streets, capturing the exasperation of living pay cheque to pay cheque. (continue)

Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett announces the dates for his 2024 UK tour: Steve Hackett - Genesis Greats, Lamb Highlights & Solo. The tour takes in 15 dates across the UK culminating with a visit to London's Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 23rd October. To mark the 50th anniversary of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Hackett is including a selection of highlights from this iconic Genesis album.
Steve Hackett's timeless guitar-work was woven throughout Genesis' classic 70's catalogue of albums. In recent years he and his outstanding touring line-up of Roger King (keyboards), Nad Sylvan (vocals), Jonas Reingold (bass, backing vocals), Rob Townsend (saxophone, flutes, additional keyboards) and Craig Blundell (drums) have brought many of these albums back to the concert hall to great acclaim. Special guest, Amanda Lehmann will be joining the whole of the UK tour on guitar and vocals. Many fans have also been asking for more tracks from The Lamb to be included. What better way to celebrate half-a-century of this remarkable album than to include a selection of Lamb Highlights alongside some of Hackett's finest solo work and unmissable Genesis Greats.

Scotty Hollywood just released his new single "The Ricochet" from his "Wondervu'" album and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song. Here is the story:
The Ricochet was written at a time when I was doing some excessive traveling. I was literally traveling to a different place each day due to my career, some weeks waking up every morning in a different state. I had heard stories of people who travel so much, they sometimes forget where they are. (continue)
