Herbie Airto ‘Childsplay’

Released on 10 August 2019

I originally heard about his music through a text sent to me by mistake;
‘Herbie’s track that sounds like the Blade Runner soundtrack’.
 
I replied saying ‘I don’t think this was meant for me, but I’d be curious to hear it’.

Herbie’s first release was this wonderful slice of electro, ‘Childsplay’, followed by the ‘Unknown Passenger’ e.p. in January 2020.

The ‘Unknown Passenger’ e.p.

Dark, electronic, jazzy, psychedelia.

Released 5th January 2020.

J.D. and Bob

Demos that were recorded for Island Records in 1998, the cassette was lost, then found again in 2018. Featuring Jo Bartlett, Danny Hagan, Bob Whittle and Mathew Priest.

New Tennessee Waltz

The e.p. is a collection of songs recorded on cassette in 1986 by New Tennessee Waltz. Based in Fleet, Hampshire, the band were regulars at The Buzz Club in Aldershot, where they supported The June Brides and The BMX Bandits. If they weren’t on stage, they were usually in the crowd. They played semi-acoustic guitars and wore great clothes.

 

Sons of the Descent

‘Physics of Angels’ released 5 July 2019

Sons of the Descent are a Scottish three-piece rich in musical history. Based in Edinburgh and FifeHugh Duggie, Stephen Evans and Ian White together bring a touch of independent music royalty to the label.

Ian, from the band is great friends with my brother Tom and we always enjoy talking about music in depth whenever we see each other. Ian was previously signed to Factory Records as part of The Wendys.

I’m also delighted to say that Grant McPhee director of ‘ Big Gold Dream’ was especially commissioned by the band to produce the ‘Physics of Angels’ video.

Grant’s work ‘Big Gold Dream’, focusing on Scotland’s post-punk culture, was the winner of the Edinburgh International Film Festival Audience Award a couple of years ago.

Originally released as a 12″ single on Push Records in 1990.
