Tickets €13.00 available from Ticketmaster

Aiken Promotions proudly presents Leif Vollebekk live at Whelans, 31 st October.

New Ways is a new album by Montreal’s Leif Vollebekk, his hotly anticipated follow-up to the Polaris Prize finalist Twin Solitude. It’s a record that lives between the kick and the snare, in that instant of feeling before the backbeat.

“The way that it was is the way it should be,” Vollebekk sings on “Phaedrus”—a line that’s a memory and a wish. New Ways is that too: the sound of desire in its
unfolding. Two years ago, things were changing so fast, and the songwriter didn’t want to forget. “I often think of Leonard Cohen’s line, ‘I hope you’re keeping some kind of record,’” he says. “So I did.” It was like he was pretending you can compose a soundtrack to your own life (which perhaps you can).

In the end, New Ways is a document of everything Vollebekk felt, the way each moment arrived and moved through him. Whereas Twin Solitude was about self-reflection, New Ways is about engaging and changing, touching and being touched. It’s a physical record, with louder and tighter grooves, and the rawest lyrics the musician has ever recorded. A portrait of beauty, desire, longing, risk, remembrance—without an instant of regret. “She’s my woman and she loved me so fine,” goes the chorus to one tune. “She’ll never be back.”

“Massively brilliant.” Shaun Keaveny, BBC 6music
“Gives your eardrums a good kicking.” Drowned in Sound
“These Pigs are flying.” MOJO
“Sounds like an advancing storm.” The Guardian
“A band to be genuinely excited about.” The Quietus
“Thundering riffs and filthy psychedelia.” Classic Rock

“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig” reasoned George Bernard Shaw. “You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.” True to form, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have left the wiser of us aware that they are no band to be messed with.

In the seven years since this band’s inception, the powerful primal charge at their heart has been amplified far beyond the realms of their original imagination. The band’s upward trajectory has done nothing to make the Newcastle-based quintet complacent however, as they’ve used the cumulative force behind them as fuel for their most ambitious and hard-hitting record yet. ‘Viscerals’, their third proper (released April 3rd on Rocket Recordings) is an enormous leap forward in confidence, adventure and sheer intensity even from their 2018 breakthrough ‘King Of Cowards’.

Incisive in its riff-driven attack, infectiously catchy in its songcraft and more adventurous than ever in its experimental approach, ‘Viscerals’ is the sound of a leaner, more vicious Pigs, and one with their controls set way beyond the pulverising one-riff workouts of their early days.

The fearsome album opener ‘Reducer’s battle cry “ego kills everything” brings a philosophical bent to its Sabbathian abjection, elsewhere live favourite and perverse banger ‘Crazy In Blood’ marries MBV-ish guitar curlicues in its verses to a raise-your-fists chorus worthy of Twisted Sister or Turbonegro.

Yet Pigs have effortlessly broadened their horizons and dealt with all these new avenues without sacrificing one iota of their trademark eccentricity, and the personality of this band has never been stronger. This record is their most far-reaching yet and its ability to get down to the nitty-gritty of the human condition is implicit from its title outwards.

STOP MAKING SENSE

LIVE BAND

Facebook event

Floor lamp? Check. Big suit? Check. A tape they’d like to play? Check.

You’ve watched the film, heard the album and gone to the screenings. Now it’s time to see the live band tribute show! Fresh from highly successful appearances in venues such as the Button Factory and the Whale Theatre, Playback are hitting the newly refurbished Opium Rooms with their re-enactment of Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense.

Come and watch as the band blast through all sixteen of the songs from the film, including classics like “Psycho Killer”, “Once in a Lifetime”, “Burning Down the House” and “This Must Be the Place”.

—————————————————————————————

Playback is an “album tribute” band. We cover classic albums in their entirety, then round out our sets with some of the artist’s greatest hits. So far our repertoire includes Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde (1960s), David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane (1970s) and Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense (1980s).

Our current project, “Still Don’t Make No Sense: The Music of Stop Making Sense”, includes every song from the film as well as classic visual moments like the tape recorder, the lamp dance, the projections and the Big Suit. The show’s lineup includes Justin McCann (vocals, keys), Cathal Farrelly (vocals, guitar, Big Suit), Jack Hussey (lead guitar), Gordon Dunning (bass), Mark Finlay (drums), Paula Size (vocals) and Ronan Slater (percussion).
