(Fantastic. I must've sounded so, so lame.)
Also! Jon let me know that his band Burningpilot has a new album out of indie-disco synth-rock, titled "Cold Caller". The last time I was in England, Jon was in the studio working on it, so I'm excited to see it hitting iPods everywhere.
Here are some reviews of it:
"The newcomers are burning bright on the dancefloor with this Talking Heads-meets-Franz indie disco blaster" - NME Magazine
"Two songs in and you're thinking: this, with its art-rock music, Mark E Smith vocals and William Orbit synthy sounds, is the future of indie-disco" - The Independent
"First-rate synth rock" - The Big Issue
"Burningpilot favour a metallic, Eighties rush of sound, throwing out echoes of The Fall, The Stranglers and general post punk desolation and fizzing synths. The band do a sterling job of setting out their stall, showcasing all that's good about Burningpilot on these ten tracks that justify the rush for their previous sold out singles. 8/10" - Clash Magazine
