A press release by Clive Meakins (their Manager)
They (the band) told me “write from the heart!” and after reviewing their newest release Erithacus Rubecula and standout track “Captain Hauser”, and carefully checking my contract, I decided I should.
Returning from a winter wellness and Twitter workshop/retreat in Cape Verde I was, to be frank, ready to move on and manage a new outfit. (Backstory: after several surprisingly bruising psychotherapy sessions, I had come to realise that, to the detriment of my health and finances, there is only so much I can and in fact want to do for this 4-piece from London, despite my experience and industry contacts).
I’d received several requests to manage other bands (via my online portal) but I’ve been at GiT’s helm – so to speak – for the best part of their 15 year career. I’ve seen them at their worst, several times in fact. And, let’s be honest, they’ve certainly seen me in some pretty awful, stressful and downright awkward situations. The mind boggles!
Admittedly it was easy for me to get their last single – “Stick it in the Garage” – played on BBC 6 Music several times in the last month, and Twitter has proven the boys’ unusual sound is proving popular. But this latest release, paired with their best video to date, takes things to a whole new level.
I’m working on getting them a few gigs, but as ever I remain open to new avenues!
