  • Hall or Nothing :: News :: Chapel Club - biography
    old bassist called Liam Arklie new to London from Swindon and the pair began to hang out all day and try things out then go out drinking We repeated that process seven days a week for a while The line up grew with the addition of mild mannered guitarist Alex Parry Liam s best friend since childhood But it wasn t until Mike was introduced to Lewis that Chapel Club found their focus and their spark Lewis had been writing stories and poetry for years never showing it to anyone beyond a few close friends I wasn t bothered about getting published he says I just wanted to get better I had a vague hope of making something of it all one day but I knew I had a long way to go before I could compete with the writers I respected Then Mike asked me if I wanted to try writing something for this embryonic band he was putting together and I thought I may as well have a go It seemed like the perfect outlet Of the tunes that emerged from those first attempts several appear on Palace pushing the dark arts of Interpol and My Bloody Valentine way off into the future stunning and confrontational in equal measure Debut single O Maybe I offers a moral tug of war between romantic security and recklessness O maybe I should settle down to a quiet life or maybe I should fuck around with someone s wife while Surfacing a pile driving shimmer that ll never make the band any money since Lewis included a large chunk of the lyric from Mama Cass Dream a Little Dream of Me in the chorus is an out and out hate song directed at an unnamed London scenester I can t tell you who it s about Lewis insists but it doesn t matter It s enough to say it was inspired by someone who for me represented a certain type of London life form totally vacuous and celebrity obsessed and success obsessed I remember being at uni and putting on these club nights and it was all about music and sex Everyone used to go back to after parties and everyone was trying to get off with everyone else I had a girlfriend but I was like this is the way it should be when you re young this is fun Then I came back to London and it all changed Everyone here was all about success about how much you earn and what access you ve got to which parties And Surfacing is about someone who represented all that for me a person who d squandered their humanity or something They were devoid of personality of talent of taste or insight or innocence or wisdom yet they were doing very well despite all this I guess you could work out who it s about if you looked into it the clues are there The lyric s cryptic rather than obscure Surfacing

  • Hall or Nothing :: News :: Pete Lawrie - Fell Into The River
    The River on the 24 th January 2011 through Island Records It is taken from the debut album A Little Brighter released on the 4 th April 2011 The obvious pressure of being a hotly tipped young artist for the coming year is something that Pete Lawrie hasn t even considered Confident and assured the young Welshman soaks up the pressure and volleys it back in the shape of another soulful pop lament The success of Pete s limited edition EP at the tail end of 2010 with lead track In The End being playlisted at national radio and press acclaim suggesting that the next twelve months were Pete s for the taking has primed the now London resident for an exciting 2011 It s not just these early recordings that have raised his profile so significantly but a hefty touring schedule which started out at 2010 s festivals Glastonbury Isle of Wight Radio 1 s One Big Weekend Hop Farm Belladrum and Cardiff s SWN and has seen Pete perform to thousands of potential fans as support to Paolo Nutini Corinne Bailey Rae Rumer and Amy Macdonald It has led to his recent London headline shows selling out and the anticipation of a debut headline tour in the Spring almost palpable Pete blames his parents for his idiosyncratic tastes in music and for the strength of passion in his songwriting His mother plays the oboe in the Welsh opera his father makes woodwind instruments and his grandfather played on the original recording of Strawberry Fields Forever by The Beatles Fell Into The River is Pete Lawrie s first single proper and a joyous acoustic pop scorcher It s upbeat and jaunty in contrast with his gravel toned husky rasp of a voice and it s another expertly crafted indication
