KAV - Blaggers & Liars EP - Press Release

‘BLAGGERS N’ LIARS’ EP THIS FEELING RECORDS RELEASED 21 APRIL Fresh from rocking Los Angeles with some select gigs and getting props in the LA Times for a show-stopping performance at the legendary Whisky A Go Go, Kav has returned to the UK to unleash his new release, the ‘Blaggers N’ Liars’ EP. This will coincide with his first live appearances since guesting with Datarock at last year’s Reading and Leed’s festivals. After teenage stints forming bands, which brought notable performances at the Astoria and Glastonbury with Sonic Audio, Kav created the infamous Get Loaded nights. While co-promoting the 20,000 capacity festival on Clapham Common that grew from the night’s success, he was invited to join the Happy Mondays, and subsequently has spent the past few years travelling the world as their guitarist and co-writer on the band’s much heralded comeback album. Following tours with James Brown, playing on line-ups with Guns & Roses and Bob Dylan, and events like Coachella and Fuji Rocks, Kav left the Mondays last summer, having had his fill of exhaustive world gigging, and spurred on by a longing to return to London to restart his solo career. He’s spent the past 6 months writing and recording new material. Collaborations on the horizon include Peter Hook, The Infadels, Adam from Babyshambles, and more. Showing a lyrical nous to match its hooky guitar lines, the ‘Blaggers N’ Liars’ EP is brimming with mescal slugging, bluesy psyche-rock. ‘Lizard King’, is the swaggering, riff-filled opener, followed by the three minutes of vitriolic speed pop that is ‘Blaggers N’ Liars’. ‘Easy’ is a blues-soaked missive about life’s ‘chancers’, while ‘Satanic Circus Mask’ closes the EP with a double-dipped psychedelic ride circa 2008. Born of a mind that at 28 has already been opened as wide as the Watford Gap and come out fighting (you don’t tour with Shaun Ryder and return an innocent), the ‘Blaggers & Liars EP’ is the first hint of Kav’s adventures this year; with another single and his debut album to follow this summer. www.myspace.com/kavsonic
