Electronic Sound Magazine

Billy, Chris, Midge and Warren were all recently interviewed for an extensive piece in the latest edition of Electronic Sounds magazine (issue No.69).  The band talk about the making of the album from the early beginnings with Midge joining, writing and recording through to the release. Initial copies of the magazine came with an exclusive 7” Vinyl Single which featured the new Steven Wilson mixes of B-sides ‘Herr X’ and ‘Alles Klar’.  Unfortunately, this edition sold out within hours of going on sale, but you can purchase the magazine direct from select local newsagents or direct from the publisher here: https://electronicsound.co.uk

Soho Radio: Pete Paphides chats with Midge

Journalist and Broadcaster Pete Paphides has invited Midge to join in and co-host his lunchtime radio show on Tuesday 29th September. Covid/Lockdown permitting, Midge will be talking about Vienna and its background as well as choosing some of his favourite music and artists he grew up with. Soho Radio is an online-only radio station and broadcasts live, but don’t fret – each show is archived afterwards, so you can listen anytime you wish.

BILLY CURRIE – THE BRUSHWORK OBLAST

Billy Currie – The Brushwork Oblast

Billy: "The Brushwork Oblast is my latest album. It is a piano album. Something I have wanted to do for ages. The Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 Centenary exhibition at the Royal Academy made a big impact on me. I started listening to some forgotten Russian composers like Mosolov & Protopopov. Tracks like Sound as it Looks and Slight and Forgotten are the result of my experience. Piano Stories of Berry Brow, another track, is about a walk I used to take when I was about eight. From Netherton to Berry Brow in West Yorkshire. The sound of the river, the church bells echoing in the valley. The amazing star-studded skies."

Track list:

01   Sound as it Looks
02   On the Colour Wheel
03   Slight and Forgotten
04   Overshadowed
05   Forward
06   Piano Stories of Berry Brow
07   Smothered
08   Sketch the Fields and People
09   Give Over
10   Shine

MIDGE'S BACKSTAGE LOCKDOWN CLUB – GROUND CONTROL!

Midge Ure – Backstage Lockdown Club

Midge has started his own Patreon subscription service called ‘Backstage Lockdown Club’, with the aim of broadcasting live sessions every few weeks, direct from his home studio. Over the past few months, he has been investing in professional cameras and lighting to make it look as best as possible rather than broadcast from a phone.

This is all interactive and includes Q&A sessions, request shows and access to exclusive merchandise for subscribers etc. The plan is to let the broadcasts develop as time goes on and all comments and ideas are welcome.

The first session took place last Saturday (5th September), with people joining from all over the world. These broadcasts can be view for a period afterwards, for subscribers.

Check Patreon direct for further information:  www.patreon.com/midgeure
