SUPERB NEW ALBUM BY FISH ON FRIDAY
FEATURING NICK BEGGS (MUTE GODS / STEVEN WILSON / LIFESIGNS / STEVE HACKETT)
Fish On Friday has always been able to walk their own thin line between well-crafted art pop and progressive rock and have earned a constantly growing following in both camps. Though every album is different, the band has its own distinct sound, with lush vocal harmonies on top of thoughtful lyrics, in this case of a more nostalgic nature, hence the title track’s reference to watching old 8mm home movies.
This, the band’s sixth album and much anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Black Rain’, features a line-up of Nick Beggs (bass and vocals), Frank van Bogaert (keyboards & vocals), Marty Townsend (guitars) and Marcus Weymaere (drums) and is the culmination of
three years work.
The sessions saw Nick Beggs assume the role of co-producer with Frank van Bogaert. ‘8mm’ is a fascinating collaboration between friends and kindred musical spirits and is their finest work to date.
