Peculiar Disco Moves "Joining Fee" Launch Gigs
Peculiar Disco Moves are back with new single Joining Fee, their take on the ridiculous sums of money involved in the top echelons of the football world!
The single will be supported by an intimate launch show at the Newcastle Institute for Mining on Friday 22nd November, as well as from HMV Newcastle with an exclusive in-store performance of the single. Joining Fee will be available to download from the Peculiar Disco Moves’ Bandcamp page and as a limited edition CD.
Joining Fee examines and compares the life of footballers and their agents with the everyday working man, challenging the disparity between them, as well as other sportsman and athletes who struggle to finance their careers. It seems that the difficulty experienced in modern society is not reflected and in proportion with the astronomical amounts of money accumulated by a small, select group of individuals, who are only required to ‘sign on the dotted line’ in order to assure their extreme wealth and status.
- Peculiar Disco Moves followed up their 2011 debut-EP with 3-track extravaganza The Domino Effect, released April 2013.
- The EP had support from BBC’s Tom Robinson, with ‘Automatic Choice’ featured on the Listening Post section of the Fresh On The Net blog, as well as being selected for airplay on BBC6Music’s BBC Introducing Mixtape show.
- Lead track ‘Chris’ has also featured on BBC Introducing on BBC Newcastle, and the band performed a number of live radio sessions, including for Amazing Radio’s Colin and Matt Show. The band’s 2011 debut EP included radio coverage from BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Metro Radio’s Nightowls, as well as reviews and features in The Crack magazine, the Journal’s Culture Magazine and Generator’s Tipping Point blog.
- They also recorded a song
and video (‘Wembley Way’) to celebrate frontman Alix’s football team Bradford
City reaching the 2013 Carling Cup Final, scoring a You Tube hit with 8,000+ views,
culminating in Alix giving an interview and performance of the song on BBC
Leeds the day before the match.
