Word has it that Jez is no longer involved with Raized By Wolves, and has not been since last October! Jez & Andy are working on a project together that they hope to have finished in July.
Great news! Of course Jimi is still working on his project, but lets hope we get some new material sometime later this year!
Season’s greetings to you! It has not been the most active/exciting year around these parts. Next year promises to be a bit more exciting with a solo album from Jimi expected and a album from Jez & Martin’s new project Raized by Wolves. Would be cool if Andy released something too, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all pans out.
I spent the year listening to and reviewing an album a day which allot of you have been following, so thanks for all the recommendations/messages of support! I’m finishing up the challenge over the coming days. Been enjoyable checking out new albums, genres and all that. My favourite album? I’ll do a list or something but the Blue Nile’s A Walk Across The Rooftops resonated with me big time. What an amazing band. As for current releases.. I highly recommend Land Observations Roman Roads or that brilliant record from Diiv.
Have a Merry Christmas and here’s to a great 2013!
A new gig poster designed for Doves! The blurb about it here..
I like the Gigposters. I´ve made some posters for music events in my recent work. At same time i´ve done some “Not real” posters, just to tribute to several bands i love. And obviously, Doves are one of this bands.
Here´s the poster i made a year ago.
Very cool Dr! You view this and more of the Dr’s work here.
Jimi once again sat in for Guy Garvey on his 6 Music’s Finest hour last night. He will do so again this coming Sunday (Nov 18th) from 10pm.
You can listen to last night’s show in full here, it will be archived until next Sunday.
Raized by Wolves have released a bunch of Spirit World remixes as a download EP. For more info/links visit their facebook.
There are some great fan tribute videos out there, this one tops the lot for me. Done by forum big man Teppin. Its quite emotional really, makes you miss going out to the gigs, meeting fellow fans and all that makes the gig experience something to remember.
Well worth a watch, if you enjoy it let him know at the forum or by liking the youtube video!
Doves are one of a number of bands who are having their back catalogue re-released as part of a EMI 5 Album Set series. Its essentially the five original albums packaged together, don’t be expecting any remastering, extras etc. For the asking price of £13 ($ 19.81 in the US) you cannot expect much more. Certainly an economical way for those who may only have the best of, to own all the studio albums, and the Lost Sides 2003 reissue.
