Hi – you wait ages for one video then two come along at the same (almost) time…
Here’s a video for our new mix of Beautiful & Useless. You can get that new mix here from 1st April (uh-oh) and you can get the whole album for not very much RIGHT NOW – see the right hand panel on this site or go to “Buy” page…we’ve update the links to the cheapest places you can get them…
Here it is! The official video for Lament…the first single from the Album “Appetite for Chivalry” (which you can buy below on limited run before it hits the shops in November).
We recorded it live at Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds, an Edwardian Cinema. Featured in the video are a bunch of other musicians we got in to make the recording an interesting thing with new parts and epic dynamics and what not. We’d be honoured if you shared the video with others…
Well we’ve finished a nice little run of gigs off the back of the big tour in January, and confirmed a couple of great festivals (see the sidebar on the right), so all very exciting. Last month we got interviewed by local Leeds magazine Vibrations…got some new pictures from the awesome Brad Pettman too, all on there…check out the magazine below:
Hey, last night we played Leeds and it was pretty rad. saw, mega amounts of people come to us, is nice to come back from playing to lots of people on other bands’ gigs to lots of people on our own. hooray!
Here’s one of the tracks recorded for our album, a bit of a mood setter/slow starter and all that. Get you in a laid back vibe, like R Kelly bump and grind before you knew about his behaviour.
Some blogs have said some really nice stuff about it…look!
“ they are shaping up to give it one hell of a kick up the arse” – Artrocker HERE
“Club Smith may hold the keys to the revival of British guitar music” – Music Broke my bones - HERE
“the band have not been letting up, and steadily have been permeating across the online community sharing their love of The Smiths (really had to think hard about that one) cruising with The Maccabees-style guitar indie – and it has indeed got to the point where this foursome’s music can be brought to bear around their contemporaries…” Killing Moon Records – HERE
“Beautiful & Useless remains firmly fixed on the RotD playlist after we were sent it last week. The chorus has proven unforgettable” - Record of the day – Today! – HERE - admittedly this is a different song…so completely irrelevant.
That’s nice isn’t it. There was one russian one but I don’t know how to speak russian…yet.
You know we at Club Smith have been banging on about recording a lot? I suppose it makes a change from talking about boxing a lot, which I have, the entire last year, such is the lack of dimension in my personal interests since making this music video. Anyway, we sent a new track from the album we just recorded to Artrocker…
…and they only put it on their website! It’s at this link below:
Some nice words said indeed. I think they said we might help save the world which is pretty cool. Oh no, I think it was just saving guitar music, not quite as important as saving the world, but pretty close? No? No? Ok.
