Another pesky one off single

Pending a new full length offering from The Parasite Mr Moss and Mr Osborne have put together a couple of new songs which reflect the state of the world at the moment.
Pimple comments on the Donald’s seeming wish to be Jim Jones a couple of weeks back, he has of course got worse since then and gone even more full on bonkers
My Culture is about cultural appropriation and an ironic statement, at least musically, about the Twitterati’s holier than thou attitude over certain things……
It’s a free download thing but anyone who wants to pay anything we’ll send the money over to the Peer Hat Manchester, our favourite gigging spot,  to help them survive the current thing.

THE JUNTA – TECH NOIR

Guaranteed to make you want to do the boogaloo this one is a guaranteed dancefloor (or living room carpet) fave!

MESMER DISCIPLES

Leeds finest proponents of alternative guitar rock are back with a fascinating new single “Chosen Child”.

Sadly the band are still without a singer so have chosen to use found sounds to compliment their intricate and emotive compositions.  We love the music this band make and we hope you will to!

 

THE PARASITE

Brewed in Mossley and Eccles over several months the new album from The Parasite is called “Social Validation Feedback Loop”

Politics , sexuality, fame and it’s attendant problems, extinction and identity, are all subjects in this collection of new pieces.

Non genre specific it weaves it’s way across several styles and influences to create a unique listening experience.

THE PARASITE

Our next release, on March 13th, is a digital only album by The Parasite called “Keep The Future Safe”. It will be available from Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and many more digital outlets.

The Parasite is a project involving Ian Moss (Four Candles, The English Disease, 2 Lost Souls), and, Bob Osborne (Space Museum, Auster Boys, Passage of Time).

The latest release from the duo comprises eight new tunes which combines Moss’s spoken word/vocal delivery and lyrical dexterity, with Osborne’s unique take on sound design.

With subjects ranging from that boy in the Tank Top behind David Bowie, performing Star Man, on Top of The Pops (a seminal cultural moment), via urban decay, a tribute to Pete Shelley, and downside of being a Good Samaritan. This is another collection of music which we like to describe as Different Noises For Your Ears.
