Malcolm Goes Bananas.

Malcolm Middleton is back, again, with his seven-hundredth studio album BANANAS, this time on the much beloved TRIASSIC TUSK RECORDS. The guitarist and songwriter is best known for his work with Aidan Moffat in Scottish rock legends ARAB STRAP, as well as for his string of DPR$$N-CORE smash hit singles “Fuck It, I Love You", "We're All Going To Die" and "Balled Of Fuck All”.

On BANANAS Malcolm has teamed up with the acclaimed not-jazz trio JEANSY, JONES & SMILLIE (David Jeans DRUMS, Stevie Jones DOUBLE BASS and Graeme Smillie PIANO) to produce an album that is both scathing and nice. With new songs like “BUZZ LIGHTYEAR HELMET”, “LOVE IS A MOMENTARY LAPSE IN SELF-LOATHING” and “PISS OFF LIFE, JUST KILL ME NOW” (that last one is a joke), Malcolm continues to report back from the depths of the everyday whilst attempting to monetise HELL. Adding a dose of saccharine to the mix, the Samaratinesque choir of Kenny Anderson (KING CREOSOTE), Jenny Reeve (BDY_PRTS) and Dan Wilson (WITHERED HAND) courageously manage to pull Malcolm back from the brink of many a teetering jont just as he’s about to disappear up his own proverbial.

Recorded and Mixed by Paul Savage (Mogwai, Delgados, Suckle, Magoo) at Chem19 Studios in Glasgow, the album contains “melodic bits and interesting lyrics” - Stephen Marshall, TRIASSIC TUSK RECORDS.

GRANFALLOON 

Granfalloon began in 2016 as the folktronica recording project of Manchester based musician Richard Lomax and resulted in 2017's debut album Down There For Dancing. It has now grown to become a group of musicians from the UK and Germany and based across Manchester and Barcelona. These geographic influences can be heard in their mixture of folk, experimental music, and lo-fi electronica. Granfalloon use the electronic elements of Casio keyboards, vintage drum machines, and Omnichords (an electronic autoharp) and weave them in and out of acoustic guitars and found samples to create beautifully cracked soundscapes with compelling storytelling elements.
