Johnny Lloyd

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Former Tribes frontman Johnny Lloyd has signed to Xtra Mile Music, the publishing wing of Xtra Mile Recordings, which – fact fans may be interested to know – is a joint venture with BMG. Which we told you when it launched last year, but I bet you forgot. I don’t know why we bother.

• UK live firm Robomagic has confirmed it will co-produce a new offshoot of the New Orleans festival Essence, which is set to launch in Durban, South Africa next month. Robomagic’s Rob Hallett will co-produce the new event alongside Ben Moseme of C-Squared Group and Mike Fuller of Famous Concerts.

• Jimmy Eat World have released the lyric video for new single ‘You With Me’. I would not lie about something like that.

• Three Trapped Tigers drummer Adam Betts has released another track from his upcoming solo album. This is ‘Hero Shit’. He’s also announced that he’ll play a show to coincide with the release of that album at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on 29 Nov.

• Sälen have put up another new song, ‘Copper Kiss’. And they’ve announced that they will play a headline show at Kamio in London on 19 Oct.

• Parekh & Singh have released another new song, ‘Philosophize’. “‘Philosophize’ was one of the earliest songs we ever wrote,” says Nischay Parekh. “It’s essentially about how we used to dream about life in the west and feeling a little out of place as a western musician in India”.

• Busted will be touring the UK in January and February next year. Here’s the video for new single ‘On What You’re On’.

• If, like me, you’d scheduled four and half minutes in your diary today to review the nominees for this year’s Festival Congress Awards, then get yourself over to this webpage. It’s where all the cool kids are hanging out. You need to scroll down a bit. But all the cool kids know that.
