Jesus, They’re Everywhere
The new Jesus H. Foxx EP is being given a full release on Song, by Toad Records in about a month’s time. By full release, I mean that we will be making a run of five hundred copies, with hand-painted artwork and I will be doing my best to publicise it around the various magazines and radio stations and blogs out there. It also implies that they are Song, by Toad Records’ latest signing, I suppose, in the sense that anyone is signed to Song, by Toad Records, which is something I am really pleased about because the stuff I’ve heard from them in the last year or so has been truly excellent.
I’ve not emailed bloggers yet, but we’re getting a little traction with radio it seems, with I’m Half the Man You Were appearing on both Gideon Coe’s 6Music show (my favourite show on the station, which makes it even nicer) and Jim Gellatly’s New Music show on Radio Magnetic. And apparently I got hammered on the Toad night last Saturday and gave BBC Radio Scotland’s Mr. Vic Galloway a big sloppy kiss, so if that doesn’t get them some airtime on his show I don’t know what will.
That picture above is how the artwork is shaping up so far. It will be printed on natural card, so there will be a texture to the flat areas of colour which should look really nice. So, in general, I am really excited about this. Publicising EPs is harder than albums in many ways, because a lot of magazines don’t cover them, but I am going to try to get through to as many online and community radio stations as possible and see if we can’t make up for it that way.
Any suggestions appreciated, and in the meantime, please enjoy Elegy For the Good Times from the Matter EP.6music, bbc radio scotland, gideon coe, jesus h foxx, jim gellatly, radio magnetic, vic galloway
