New Trampolene Single: ‘The Boy That Life Forgot’

  • Published in News

Welsh wonders Trampolene release a new single, ‘The Boy That Life Forgot,’ on Friday December 8. The single is taken from their debut album Swansea To Hornsey, out this Friday on limited edition 12” vinyl, CD, Deluxe CD and digital download. Trampolene will be touring over the next few months including shows with The Libertines & Liam Gallagher in December, Musicians against Homelessness with Cabbage in November and Jack playing lead guitar for Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres in November.

Swansea To Hornsey was recorded at Ray Davies’ Konk Studios in London’s Muswell Hill (the ‘Hornsey’ of the title) and produced by Trampolene singer/guitarist Jack Jones & engineer Josh Green and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Jamie T / Everything Everything). The album includes the singles ‘Alcohol Kiss’ (New Mix), ’The Gangway’ (New Extended Mix), ‘You Do Nothing For Me’ (New Mix), ‘Imagine Something Yesterday’ (New Version) and recent single ‘Beautiful Pain.’  Along with live stalwart ‘Storm Heaven’ and spoken word favourites ‘Ketamine,’ ‘Pound Land’ and ‘Artwork of Youth’.  Dr John Cooper Clarke described Jack Jones’ spoken word pieces as “Exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time and how often can you say that?”

Trampolene have toured continuously over the last 2 years, with stand out supports with The Libertines, Buzzcocks, Peter Doherty, Reverend & The Makers, The Enemy, Pretty Vicious, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Carl Barat & The Jackals. Trampolene performed at the Isle of Wight Festival (headlining The Jack Rocks/This Feeling Stage), The Great Escape, Tramlines, Y Not, Hope & Glory and Reading Festivals this summer.

Scruff Of The Neck Presents ... - 20160321

  • Published in Columns


For your entertainment at the start of another working week here's five more hand-picked delights from the Scruff Of The Neck stable.

Trampolene – 'Tom Hardy'

Balls to the wall and tongue-in-cheek indie rock from South Wales kicking off this week. 'Tom Hardy' sees the indie rock trio musing on life's mundanities and how much better it would be if they were the eponymous actor. Fusing together blues driven indie anthemics with cheeky every-man lyricism, it's easy to understand the bands appeal.

New York Tourists – 'Adrenaline'

Something a little more sincere in the for of New York Tourists. Hailing from Blackburn, the band peddle a moody and atmospheric brand of alt-rock that throbs with a quiet dissatisfaction. 'Adrenaline' steadily mounts towards a fragile break-down, before exploding in an emphatic and cathartic conclusion.


Fake War – 'Uniforms'

Stoke's Fake War aren't happy with the current political climate, but rather scream, shout and spit about it as other bands might do, they write a quietly condemning commentary in the form of 'Uniforms'. Having created an amalgamation of post-punk, new wave and garage rock that perfectly suits their political malaise, it's likely we'll be hearing much more from the three-piece soon.

Factory – 'Norman Wisdom'

One of Merseyside's most promising acts at the moment, Factory subscribe to the kind of Scouse psych that's become a common export. Rather than feel like something you've heard before however, Factory manage to stay fresh and forward thinking without straying too far from their roots.


Sheafs – 'Anticipation, No Consolation'

Snarling and swaggering indie rock from the Steel City, Sheafs manage to encompass the attitude of brit-pop without ever sounding trite. 'Anticipation, No Consolation' is a short sharp kick to the ribs that doesn't so much as introduces listeners to Sheafs' sound, as it does bludgeon them around the head with it. Expect big things.
