For Your Eyes – AFTER LONDON Drop Action Movie Inspired Video Clip For Rad Single ‘HURRICANE’

Eye-catching clips

24 June 2022

Band: AFTER LONDON
Who: London quartet producing a striking sound with
infectious hooks, truly unique delivery, and effortless swagger.

At the start of this month After London launched their new rad single HURRICANE.

The band about the song: “Hurricane” is about coming up for air after a long time in deep water. It’s a commentary on anxiety as our new age common plague – ‘pit in my stomach, learnt to serve it’, the dark undercurrent of technology – ‘white screen with a blue tick mural, your fix is somebody’s flaw though’ and genuine need for human contact ‘hard embrace,
saves the intervention’. Best listened to on a late-night drive.”


Artwork single

Turn Up The Volume named it Pick Of The Day and wrote: The combination
of a funky and foot-tapping groove, a bouncy rhythmic, spry and soulful vocals
by the band’s charismatic Amazon, and a sprightly and sticky as A-1 glue chorus
help you to breathe again in these alarming times. Play it everywhere, any time.
It’ll enliven your worrying state of mind. Don’t miss this hopeful injection.

And here’s the brand new video clip for the cracker.

Anything can happen at night, just like anything
happened in the action movie Heist

BOB DYLAN Defending Convicted Black Boxer Robert ‘HURRICANE’ Carter 45 Years AGo

Top singles from the past

3 January 2022

At the end of 1975 living legend BOB DYLAN released single HURRICANE.
A protest song co-written with Jacques Levy, about the imprisonment of black
boxer Rubin Carter, whose nickname was Hurricane.

“Carter and a man named John Artis had been charged with a triple murder at the Lafayette Grill in Paterson, New Jersey, in 1966. The following year Carter and Artis were found guilty of the murders, which were widely reported as racially motivated. In the years that followed, a substantial amount of controversy emerged over the case, ranging from allegations of faulty evidence and questionable eyewitness testimony to an unfair trial.”

The song entered the US Singles charts this day 45 years ago.
It peaked at #33 and was part of his stellar 1976 album Desire
released on 5 January 1976.

BOB DYLAN Released ‘DESIRE’ Album 45 Years Ago Today

Back in time…

5 January 2021

Artist: BOB DYLAN

Album: DESIRE – Zimmerman’s 17th LP
Released: 5 January 1976 – 45 years ago today

AllMusic: “There’s no other place where Dylan tried as many different styles,
as many weird detours, as he does here.. And, there’s something to be said for its
rambling, sprawling character, which has a charm of its own. Even so, the record
would have been assisted by a more consistent set of songs; there are some
masterpieces here.”
Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: In my top 10 of best-Bob-Dylan-albums-ever.

Highlights: Hurricane / Mozambique / Romance In Durango / Sara

The full desire…

19 May 2018

Atlanta garage squad THE COATHANGERS release a live album, simply titled LIVE,
on 1 June. It was recorded across two nights at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, California
last November. The record is a career-spanning collection, with songs from their
2007 self-titled debut through 2017’s Parasite EP. “It’s like our anthology… our
entire career in 38 minutes,” says guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel.

Along with the longplayer, the band will also launch some live videos from those shows. Here’s the first clip, a hot rendition of HURRICANE from 2011 LP ‘Larceny & Old Lace’

Talking about sweaty live action! Here are some impressions
of The Coathangers hitting my hometown Ghent, Belgium last year…
