Idiot

Postby Foma2 » Sun Jun 12, 2011 09:05

I've posted this already in the forum members' things bit but I thought it wouldn't hurt to put it here as well:

Hello everyone

If you care to follow the link below you'll find what can only be described as a "trailer" for our band "idiot". It's a short film announcing our presence to the world and advertising the fact we'll be releasing our debut ep in the autumn:

If you're looking for a Cardiacs connection then there is one, of sorts. I played in Bill Drake's band for a little while and I recorded his album "Briny Hooves" (as some of you are no doubt aware). Alongside myself there's my dear friend Darren Saddington, brother of Sharron Fortnam of NSRO and Shrubbies fame. Darren and I have been writing music on and off for something like twenty-odd years and we've finally decided the time is right to take things a little more seriously. There'll be plenty more in due course - hope you enjoy it.

Cheers

Darryl

The first bit of that promo is quite creepy for me but the second half I really like :)

There'll be an ep in a few months, but we have so much stuff an album is inevitable. All being well it'll be ready for early next year.

You can come and join us at our facebook page "Idiot the band" which is here:

Hey, guess what? I'm delighted to announce we'll be uploading a tune from our (yes, still) forthcoming ep to our Facebook page this Friday (10th August). I'll post the link when it's ready for your perusal. Embrace the idiocy people.

Please have a listen:

or

Weirdly, facebook flips the stereo image on the vid. The youtube one is correct.

Hope you enjoy listening - if so please spread the word.

I did indeed enjoy it. Splendid work, sir! Kind of reminds me of Steve Hackett's early solo work, and that can only be a good thing :D Still not sure about the band name though :? i.e.

Person : "Who are you listening to?"
Me : "Idiot"
Person "No need for that, I was only asking!" :)

cheers

Steve

Thanks for the kind words. As far as the band name's concerned we've had a very positive response so far, and when I wear my tee shirt around town I often get some young kid saying 'Ha ha, Idiot!' which is great because it means it was noticed. Anyway, got to crack on with the other tunes. Cheers!

Absolutely great stuff!! Really hope to catch you live if you're out and about in Lincoln or, even better, the Nottingham direction...
