Here’s another rough cut from the first Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus gig, new song The Lum’s on Fire. See yesterday’s news for more details and the first new song, Catch a Break.
Here’s the first of three of new tunes from the first Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus gig a couple of weeks back, Catch a Break.
The others will be uploaded over the next few days. These are warts-and-all/rough’n’ready recordings to be sure but hopefully they’ll be worth checking out.
Normal/improved service resumes on the Channel Nowhere website as of now.
The following, from craighughes.net, applies here too:
Apologies for the lack of news etc. since last year – I’m afraid life rather got in the way. This site will be being updated regularly (at least weekly) again as of now. There will be news about gigs, releases and new sounds coming soon. In the meantime …
I’ll be playing a showcase gig with new band The Crow Bone Chorus at The Audio Lounge in Glasgow on Saturday afternoon, May 5th. More details to follow.
Well, there you go. No matter how daintily you tiptoe through life, it’ll still give you an unexpected kick in the cock just to remind you who’s boss. And so, due to ill health, plans for live work for the rest of 2017 have had to be shelved. Hopefully we’ll pick up where we left off in late January or February of next year. On a cheerier note, the “Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus” rehearsals are carrying on regardless. They’re sounding rather good too.
For the same reasons as above, plans for the Off the Cuff EP release have also changed. However, rather than leave it until next year, we’ve opted to put it out for download/streaming as a Bandcamp exclusive as of Friday, December 1st. A physical release and full digital distribution will follow in March 2018. Ish. Full details on the Bandcamp release will be up here in the next day or two. Please do check back.
Off the Cuff is the new EP from The Craig Hughes Two which will be available at the end of November.
Here’s a preview – the brand new lyric video for My Side of the Veil.
After five years of rehearsing, songwriting, recording and intermittent gigging, we feel it’s time for Dog Moon Howl to wind things down. We’re opting for the popular showbiz euphemism “extended hiatus”.
Unfortunately, for unrelated reasons we’ve had to pull out of the October gig at Nice’N’Sleazy, so as it stands we’ll no longer be active after our upcoming support slot with Lionize at the ABC2 on August 1st. We may take the very occasional gig if we get the right offer but we won’t be chasing live work or working on new material for the foreseeable future.
There’s no bad blood involved, not even musical differences. In fact we’ll be continuing to work together, though on a very different project. More news on that soon.
Anybody who wants a last hurrah with the band can head over to dogmoonhowl.bandcamp.com for half price tickets to the ABC2 show. In the meantime, thanks to those of you (family, friends, bands, bloggers and broadcasters) who’ve supported us over the years.
Now available from Dog Moon Howl’s Bandcamp store: HALF PRICE tickets to their ABC2, Glasgow show supporting Lionize with Mantis Taboggan + The Last Gasp on Aug 1st. Tickets are half face value with no hidden bullshit.
