MONSTER JAW Announce Basement Sessions EP & UK Tour News 
Armed with a forthcoming EP release and promotional UK tour, British alt/garage-rock three-piece Monster Jaw reveal news of their Basement Sessions project. 
With both their debut EP ‘Get A Tattoo’and follow up ‘Losing All My Friends’bringing acclamation from both mainstream and independent rock media, Monster Jaw have boldly set out on a mission to showcase the band in its most purest, un-edited and intimate state, with their first record release of 2015, being self-produced in a home basement. 
Taking a back to basics and lo-fi approach to their record production, Mik Davies (Vox/Guitar), Neil Short (Bass/Vox) and John Bradford (Drums) intentionally set out to capture the synergy of the bands live performances using predominately a vintage Tascam 8 track tape recorder and minimal use of modern recording technology. 
Basement Sessions EP out on 30th April 2015

Mishka Shubaly defies easy description. He is a veteran singer/songwriter who tours all over the USA and has shared the stage with The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Decemberists. He is often compared to Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, and Leonard Cohen.


Mishka Shubaly is also a best-selling writer. His Kindle Singles for Amazon—surprisingly funny autobiographical stories about drink, drugs, disasters, and deception—have all been #1 bestsellers. His work has been praised for its grit, humour, fearlessness, and heart, and he was dubbed “a new star” by The New York Times. His six Kindle Singles (recently collected in a volume with an introduction by Jeff Bezos) have sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into Spanish, German and Polish.


Mishka Shubaly is also an ultra-runner, competing in races of up to 100 kilometres, races so long that he runs marathons as training runs. And Mishka Shubaly is a respected voice in the global recovery community. “The Long Run,” his firsthand account of his transition from alcoholic to sober distance runner without rehab or AA, has sold more than 90,000 copies worldwide. A full-length hardcover version of “The Long Run” will be published in 2016 by a major American publisher.


Shubaly’s sobriety doesn’t prevent him from mining the darkness in his past on his newest release, Coward’s Path. “I’m at peace with my alcoholic past,” he says with a grin, “what should I have been doing instead—selling insurance? I can’t recommend twenty years of drinking to others… but I gained a lot of insight into human darkness, soaked up a good story or two.” Indeed, Coward’s Path demonstrates Shubaly’s fluency with the lexicon of despair. No one else has plumbed the depths with such an unflinching gaze and indefatigable humour. Never has such a dark album been so funny.


Having wowed crowds in thirty-nine USstates and several other countries, Mishka’s album “Coward’s Path” is now being released by Invisible Hands Music in the UK. It is a tragic, comic, and brutally honest account of his descent into alcoholism (and the misadventures that followed). Johnny Depp calls it, “Forever a favourite – sublime!” Comedian Doug Stanhope says, “If you have ever considered committing suicide at happy hour, Mishka Shubaly is the singer-songwriter for you. You will drink yourself into a bottomless pit of despair, tap-dancing all the way.”




“The songs on Shubaly’s new LP were recorded during his last epic bout with alcohol and they’re both harrowing and hilarious.”



“The gruff and rough-voiced Shubaly is a chronicler of mankind's darkest impulses and failures, a guy with a ticket to hell and back. Shubaly’s voice ain't exactly pretty, but it’s just right for his music: thickly melodic sing-along songs that yank at your heartstrings, and dark furious rockers.”

“Don’t miss the track from singer/songwriter Mishka Shubaly.”

USA Today


Left-field alternative combo The Permanent Smilers bring you their debut album 'One Real Big Identity Crisis'. Thirteen brand new songs which have been perfected over two years. 


The single Identity Crisis is taken from the album. A boisterous, jangling guitar affair.


An album doffing it’s cap to many musical genres, but with The Permanent Smilers tunefulness and unpredictability threading throughout. Reviewers have readily likened various songs to The Kinks, The Doors, XTC, The Fall, Half Man Half Biscuit,and Richards songwriting talent to Simon and Garfunkel, and Burt Bacharach.


Under the guise of The Permanent Smilers, Rich Lemongrower has written, recorded and overseen several albums in recent years. Despite there being no intention to fully release them, one still crept out to be featured prominently in The Sunday Telegraph supplement. Prior to that, in the early 1990’s, as the songwriter behind The Lemongrowers, he released two albums on the Norwichbased Noisebox label. Both were very well received and national as well as international airplay followed, including several songs being aired by John Peel. More recently, Rich appeared several times on Channel M television in Manchester to perform a single. He ended up also reviewing the sport and even the papers! Again, the song was very well received, knocking the Manic Street Preachers off the top spot in the local charts.



The Permanent Smilers are fronted by Rich Lemongrower, who writes the songs, sings them, and is responsible for guitars, keyboards and most of the percussion. Jonny Cole plays bass, and Pete Fraser drums. Dave Land (Starlight Express, Dame Shirley Bassey, amongst many others) guests on a number of tracks playing trumpet or flugelhorn. David Pye (Transgressive) completes the team by mixing the songs.
