His Lordship Grace London On 23rd

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the band’s upcoming (and first ever) UK tour, His Lordship play at The 100 Club on May 23rd.  Having already made their mark on London’s live scene, the band is the new project from James Walbourne (The Pretenders, The Pogues, The Rails) and Kristoffer Sonne (Chrissie Hynde, Willie Nelson), and sees Walbourne’s full potential unleashed as a frontman. Forging a furious riot of raging guitars and frenetic drums, the show is set to be one to remember.

 

In addition to the tour, the duo also announce their debut EP, a one take collection of rock ‘n’ roll covers, which came together in one evening after a long day of recording original songs (also coming soon). Deciding to let loose, they kept the tape rolling and filmed a set of rock’n’roll tunes they like to play. They didn’t even rehearse them. The finished EP is a first take 15-minute set of stuff they like; Gene Vincent, Jack Scott, Link Wray and The Killer.

 

The EP is out now, with a vinyl release to follow on Psychonaut Sounds.  Tickets for the tour are available from:  http://www.prbpresents.com/his-lordship/

Von Liz Soundtracks Our Extinction

 

 

Our extinction is the latest album from Von Liz; an Irish artist, with an album recorded in Scotland, and launched in Germany.  The album came out digitally in February, with a launch party at Loophole in Berlin.  The vinyl will be ready in the coming weeks.

Von Liz says, “The title was decided long before the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, so it's not some cynical attempt at being 'relevant'. ‘Our Extinction’, the title track, was inspired by a Bill Hicks rant about the horrors of TV.

I'm from Tipperary, currently living in Berlin, where the album was made. Myself and my producer mate from Aberdeen bunkered down in the basement of a bar I worked in during the lockdown, and set up studio to finish off what we thought was a lost cause - we'd lost all the original files, but salvaged them again”.

“Von Liz, former leader of notorious Irish alternative rock band Liz is Evil, moved to Berlin after the Irish recession.  Mixing elements of electronica, rock, folk and contemporary classical music, Von Liz gives an aural snapshot of our collective anxiety as we find ourselves the custodians of a looming climate apocalypse.  On the U-Bahn, vagrants shoot up while artists write delirious notes to self. In old East Berlin, the Romanticism of Soviet towers falls under the creeping shadow of global tech hubs. But within it all there's an ever-beating heart, and Von Liz uses his characteristic humour, wit, energy and observation to bring it all to life - a digital postcard from the crumbling shoreline of what might be the end times.”
