LEATHERFACE – New Album Very Soon!
Man, we’ve always been in love with Frankie and Dickie
We’ve just heard UK’s veteran melodic punks LEATHERFACE is releasing a new album; a live one recorded in Australia during 2010′s Stormy Petrel World Tour and a tribute to the recently tragically closed down Melbourne venue Arthouse. Most of the classics from the band’s much revered third & fourth albums (Mush & Minx) are here; right from I Want The Moon to Not Supertitious, Pale Moonlight, Dead Industrial Atmosphere and even the Trent Reznor-written, touched by Johnny Cash “Hurt”!
“Viva La Arthouse is Leatherface’s second release on their own label and is a celebration of their 2010 Stormy Petrel World Tour that took in Europe, Canada, America, Japan and Australia. This double live album was recorded and mixed at Melbourne’s famous music venue The Arthouse by Poison City Record’s Matt Bodiam. The recording was made in arrangement with bassist Greame Philliskirk on the spare of the moment with the other three members of the band unaware the gig was being recorded for posterity.
Sadly The Arthouse, which has hosted punk and indie shows in North Melbourne for the past 19 years, closed its doors in May 2011 after its long-time licensee Maree Kelly decided not to renew its lease. An unsympathetic landlord and a change in the liqour licensing regulations are the two major factors in the Kelly family’s decision not to renew the lease. Leatherface’s Frankie Stubbs has a long-standing relationship with The Arthouse, in October 2005 A Death In the family flew Frankie over from the U.K to produce their debut album in the newly equipped Arthouse Studio.” – big ugly fish records
