Seminal UK group McLusky have just shared a batch of new songs.
The band released a string of utterly essential, pretty-damn-life-changing records before splitting in 2005. Evolving into Future Of The Left – itself a noble rock institution – fans often hankered for a dose of those earlier musical adventures.
As a result, a reformed-if-slightly-different version of McLusky went back out on the road on 2014, playing some sporadic, celebratory shows.
Earlier this week a brand new recording from McLusky aired on 6Music, Marc Riley and Gideon Coe given the task of introducing this historic moment.
As it happens, there are four brand new songs from the band, spread across what they’re terming an old fashioned double A-side.
The first release from the band since 2006 compilation ‘mcluskyism’, it boasts four tracks of all-new material.
In a note, singer Falko comments: “well, we recorded it and thought we might release it in order to raise money towards the ridiculously expensive us visas we require if we’re to finish what we started in that stupid, wonderful country.”
He also points out: “an album is half recorded. we just need to write and record the second half but that’ll be easy.”
So, tune in below. You deserve it.
