Doesn’ttime fly when a début album is delivered to an unsuspecting world and it’s all grown up now, at 10 years old? Yes, 10 years since Tom Vek’s “We Have Sound”. The album gave us the still fresh sounding ‘Nothing but Green Lights’…with an intro that still makes us think of Talking Heads! AND he’s gone on to make two more that flirt and skirt around the indie/electronica axis.
He’s still performing and making music, having recently done a solo A/V set for Land of Kings, but it’ll be time to dust off the first album and give it a full airing, at Brixton Academy on 22 May. He won’t be playing it on the original guitar he used though, as it’s up for auction on Ebay! (Currently over £500 for the Fender Duo). Guitar. Gig. Heavy-vinyl re-issue (Tummy Touch Records). It’s nice to not be chasing hot, new music and be reminded about still hot older music.
