2016 has begun with my first London radio interview. James Hodder, charming presenter of Tin Can Review for Resonance FM, didn't believe me when I told him at the Resonance Studios on Borough High Street. But it's a fact.
I think I may have disappointed James with my mellow live acoustic tunes but he made up for it by needle-dropping Rattle The Bars, one of the band's more deranged numbers.
I have a feeling in my bones it's going to be a good year. Much more to come...

Spottiswoode & His Enemies sixth studio recording. A haunting new departure for the New York septet. After winning two Independent Music Awards for 2012’s Wild Goosechase Expedition - a poppy and satirical romp about a rock band’s doomed tour - the band returns with a beautiful and much more atmospheric set.
ENGLISH DREAM is an English record written and sung by an Englishman and recorded in Brooklyn by a New York band. “Salvation, our fourth record - was Americana,” says Spottiswoode. “This time we’ve gone Anglicana and made a pastoral collection of songs about nature, love, childhood and the other side of the pond. Sometimes it’s idyllic and sometimes it’s a bit scary.”
The sequence with the full song can be seen here on the Super Pitch label website.
The episode first aired on December 9th, 2015.
The song was produced by Riley McMahon at New Warsaw Studio in Brooklyn and released by the French label Super Pitch.
Earlier in 2015 the song ALL IN THE PAST, from the band's IMA-winning WILD GOOSECHASE EXPEDITION, was featured as the closing track of the last episode of the Netflix series BLOODLINE. The track was produced by Kenny Siegal for Old Soul Records.
