Radio play includes BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe), Resonance FM, Echoes (US) and numerous digital and web stations. He also plays guitar in the instrumental band The Fierce And The Dead who released their debut album recently. “An effortless display of cleverly arranged and resourceful playing….(an) acoustic masterclass” Classic Rock Presents Prog (live review June 2011) “A one man guitar orchestra” Acoustic Magazine UK Sanguine Hum Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. “The Weight of the World” sees Sanguine Hum expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of diverse compositions – technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic and direct. Songs such as “From the Ground Up” and “System for Solution” pursue the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record “Diving Bell” with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement. Formed from the Antique Seeking Nuns and the Joff Winks Band, this band are really one to watch. Tin Spirits Tin Spirits first got together in Swindon UK in the summer of 2008, when Daniel Steinhardt from TheGigRig invited former XTC guitarist (and musical hero) Dave Gregory to a local studio to video record an ‘amp shoot-out’ with Dan’s band The Hi-Fidels, comprising bassist Mark Kilminster and drummer Doug Mussard. All enjoyed the experience so much they decided to take things a stage further and rehearse some of the more challenging music they’d grown up listening to but never had the chance to perform. The band play a mix of new material and some XTC covers and are a tremendous live band with huge energy. Currently working on their second album following good acclaim for Wired to Earth-also released on Esoteric Antenna..
