The Despoilers

All Ends Well on a Chaotic Saturday

Those who play in covers/hobby bands will know all too well the highs and lows assocoated with playing their local music scene. The weekends gig is often the main focus of positive thinking to get you through the working week and the highlight of the weekend.

Having kicked around most of Saturday to ensure we would not be late to load the gear and travel to Drighlington for our gig at the New Inn, we get a call at 5:00pm cancelling the gig. Our Drummer had already loaded his kit and had set off and the others guys had either loaded or were loading their gear.

Anyway we got on the "Rock of the North" facebook page and within 30 minutes had a booking to play function for the East Leeds Lions MCC in Crossgates.

Every emotion was experienced between 5;00 pm and 12:00 pm Saturday, but fortunately it ended on a high!

Interestingly we are back in Crossgates on Friday 13th March when we play the New Travellers Rest.

Friday 13th???? We got to be "Suckers for Punishment"?

Thank you Rock of The North and East Leeds Lions MCC.

The Wounded Lovers

NEW SINGLE - "MOVERS AND SHAKERS"

THE NEW WOUNDED LOVERS SINGLE HAS LANDED!

"Movers and Shakers" is the first of three new Wounded Lovers releases.  The rumour circulating at Casa Mojo HQ is that it is the follow up to "Stolen Car".  Whatever! Here at HQ we have been attempting to dance to it's obviously eastern european influenced beats.  Not easy after hours of lounging around the pool drinking "David Niven's"!

It's quite unlike anything the boys have produced before.  Its MEAN, its MOODY.....and its MAGNIFICENT!

It has the fabulous T-Bone FC production, that we have come to expect.  Another tantalising T-Bone FC solo too. Fenwick has apparently written a bag full of new tunes, and we salute this news..

 

We hope you enjoy this free download and stream, as much as we do..

Hiring A Musician

Hiring a musician/band or thinking of asking them to play at your event?

 

What you think you're paying for:                     

      Someone to play some music.

 

What you're actually paying for:

Someone to play some music plus:

Equipment and instruments.

Hours of rehearsal time.

Rehearsal space.

 Transportation to and from the venue.

 The amount of money spent on lessons and training to become the musicians that they are.

Promotion and Website costs.

The percentages that go to income tax.

Telephone and internet bills spent organizing the performance and its rehearsals.

Any manager, agent,or other booking fees.

Insurance.                                

 

Not to mention......the payment also has to cover food, housing, bills, and all other living expenses. 

 

STILL THINK THAT OFFERING "EXPOSURE" IS FAIR RECOMPENSE FOR A PERFORMANCE?

 

You wouldn't expect a plumber, carpenter, hair-dresser, doctor, dentist, optician, electrician, chef, auto-mechanic, dressmaker, or shop owner to work for free would you?

Yes, we're having fun......but it takes a lot of time and money investment to have this fun.

Bobby Mahoney

Behind the Song: "Star-Crossed"

Courtesy: Nathalie Le Pennec

It's now been more than seven months since the release of Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son's debut full-length album, Friends in Low Places. Despite the time, the songs remain fresh for much of the loyal fanbase.

One of the favorites for the crowd continues to be "Star-Crossed." Bobby and Jon discuss track No. 8 in the newest "Behind the Song."

Where did you draw inspiration for "Star-Crossed?"

BM: "I drew inspiration from 'Peter Pan,' 'West Side Story,' 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Bonnie and Clyde.' A lot of fucked up love stories that were doomed to fail. These relationships were completely romanticized and ill-advised, but they were dumb and in love and followed their hearts (usually to their own demise)."

JA: "I didn't have much to say with the lyrics for this one, but very much its aura. We didn't really have a true bombastic, epic-in-sound track yet for the album at that point, and that's something I'm big on. So I would say I had a pretty big influence on the track sounding (audibly) how it does."

How did the song change since how you initially wrote it?

BM: "What ended up being the chorus, was originally the bridge and at Jon’s suggestion, I re-worked the song and it came out to how it is on the record. There was also a third verse that we cut in order to streamline the song, but we use it as a live intro to the song. I wish I didn’t have to cut it, but I’m glad we were able to repurpose it."

JA: "The song was originally three verses, a bridge and a chorus. He was going for something different, and I respect that, but when I heard the bridge, I knew that was the catch. That was the part I remembered from it. That was the part I could see thousands singing along to at once. I begged him to redo it with that as a chorus, throw in a solo and have this huge ending. I actually ended up composing the drums for this song, with two sticks I had laying around and a bedspread. I also wrote the lead for the song that Dan plays live."

What's your favorite element of the song?

BM: "I really enjoy the verses and the solo. The crowd usually sings the chorus, so I also enjoy that aspect of it."

JA: "Obviously the chorus is great, but my favorite part of the song is undoubtedly the solo. It tells a story, which I beg and push Bobby to do every single time he records one. It's actually my favorite part of the entire album."

This is one of the poppier songs on the album. Were you trying to write one like that?

BM: "Not really. When I sit down to write, I don’t go 'oh I’m going to write a pop song, or a love song' I just put the pen to the paper and let my mind wander until I find something that feels right."

JA: "I don't think it hurt that we wrote one. I wanted this enormous sounding anthem of sorts. I think, to a degree, that gets across."

How is it represented live?

BM: "Like I said, we use the cut third verse as the intro, and the crowd really gets into this song because of the easy, catchy chorus. It is always a fun, high-energy song to play live."

JA: "It's the only song that we play I use effects on. So that's pretty cool. Crowd really gets into this one, and I give a nice lead-in to Bobby's solo. Dan and Joe add a lot on backup vocals too."

Where does it stand on the album for you?

BM: "It is the only full 'love' song on the record, and the main character is referring to the same girl he is refers to in the end of 'Scoundrels.'"

JA: "I personally would have placed it after 'Deadbeat' on the album, but I get why it comes after 'Guilden Street.' It works."

Will this one stick around as you enter Another Deadbeat Tour?

BM: "I don’t see why not. I like it and the band likes it and the crowd likes it. Even Joe sings along."

JA: "Not my say, but I sure hope so. Maybe stagger it a bit to make it more special."

Mahoney also noted he recorded all the leads and solos for the song in one take, a rarity these days for musicians.
