MORGELLONS release their eponymously titled 2nd album in June 2017 on Flicknife Records.
To mark this occassion, Morgellons are playing a launch event at the Mau Mau Bar in Notting Hill’s famous Portobello Road with their long term buddies Viva Las Vegas UK and new kids on the block Desperate Measures NZ.
Getting Under The Skin Of The Twenty-First Century
London-based quartet Morgellons have been causing something of a stir on the Capital’s music scene, and the ripples are spreading further afield as their zeitgeist surfing snapshots of post-millennial ennui are beginning to strike a chord with an appreciative and rapidly increasing audience.
Taking the post-punk blueprint of bands like Joy Division, Wire and Magazine, the frozen intensity of early Banshees and the art-school nihilism of the Velvet Underground through to the Stooges, Morgellons have created a sound that, although rooted in a rich musical past, has a relevance and urgency that marks them out as something very different from their peers.
Debut album ‘The Memory Of Echoes’ arrived on Flicknife Records and received very positive reviews, including a scorching 9 out of 10 in Vive La Rock magazine.
The diversity of musical styles – from ska and psychobilly (Lester Beale and Subterranean Homesick Beast), to the brooding atmospherics of Monochrome Soul and Cold Dark Sunrise, to the pure punk rush of Rose-Tint Parade, are an indication that a genuinely original and exciting new band had arrived.
The follow-up to Memory Of Echoes is now recorded and mixed, eponymously entitled ‘Morgellons’ and ready for release in early June 2017.
12 songs of diverse moods, varying atmospherics and downright bloodymindness are to be unleashed again by Flicknife Records on an unsuspecting public, you have been warned.
