Here come the Big Nowhere out of Glasgow, Scotland, with the mellow “Hank” and a cracking ukulele cover of “Werewolves of London.” The band tell us:
“We recorded the song ‘Hank’ having never played it together before, which explains the ramshackle feel – in fact, Simon had never seen the lyrics before, which is why he is reading them from a sheet. For ‘Werewolves’, the drum machine and fx are being done live in the room, but camera operator Jennifer Snodgrass refused to be on video and performed from behind the camera.
The Big Nowhere are working on our third album, which will be preceded by an as-yet untitled EP to be released in early April.
Last year, the band released our second album Don’t Burn The Fortune – a very small number of the limited edition CD are still available from our Bandcamp site. The CD contains artwork contributed by fans of The Big Nowhere, including Neil Gaiman, TROMA studios’ Lloyd Kaufman, and Devon Sproule, among other well-known names.
Earlier this year, The Big Nowhere’s releases were inducted into the National Archive at the British Library (the UK version of The Preservation Directorate of the Library of Congress), as works befitting preservation for future generations.”
