We are very excited to announce that our debut EP has been given the RMXD treatment. Tracks are remixed by some of our favourite artists/people. Daithi – Decoded, Dazboy – Go! New York! Glow!, Frenchie – El Troubador. Released today for free download on bandcamp (click here) the remixed EP also includes our own remix of song Jake the Dog. We took the dry stems of the song, squeezed them through filters, cut, pasted, stretched and reapplied to give it a completely different vibe. The original bits and pieces will still be there for you to hear – if you listen carefully. Here is a Bluestack video done for Frenchie’s El Troubador mix, enjoy & happy christmas
Here’s the line up for Hard Working Class Heroes 2011, a festival we’re quite frankly honoured to have been chosen to play at. Back in ’09 a very different GPG played HWCH, with 3 of the current line up performing a very acoustic (although plugged in-ish) collection of now rarely heard songs a review of which you can find here. We honestly have no idea what kind of set we’re going to be playing this year, but promise it will be yet another incarnation of GPG than that to which some may have become acustomed in recent months. Among the acts we’re excited about seeing are MOTHS, THE DEBUTANTES, and NANOBOT but in fairness, there’s lots to choose from! So keep the 6th,7th, and 8th of October – thursday to saturday – free people! Also a litany of Galway-based bands playing this year including THE DEPRAVATIONS, JUNIOR 85, THE FOLLOWERS OF OTIS, ELAINE MAI, DAITHI AND THE KANYU TREE…
Woooo! We’re all really looking forward to this one.. also available on their website is a full bar price list AND off-licence opening hours and prices!! Exactly the kind of transparency any Irish person heading off to a large field for a few days tenting and tomfoolery needs!
Here’s a snippet of soundcheck behind the scenes, as drummer Yos gets to grips with the opening lines to DeCoded
Check this shizzle out. Recorded and Produced by David Phelan at Forge Recording Studio. Tis sublime and free!! (but dont just take our word for it, we’re biased)
We did an acoustic session with Hector a few weeks back. Here’s a snippet of the interview and acoustic performances of EP tracks ‘DeCoded’ and ‘Go! NY Glow!’ that that went out live on the 2fm breakfast show.
