I Don't Feel Welcome Here or Anywhere
As most of the internet has probably heard tonight, Defeater are releasing their new record ‘Letters Home’ on July 16th of this year. Over the course of a couple of their recent European tours I’ve been shooting my next documentary piece with them. The feature is now in its very final stages and I’ve been working on it over the last month to finish it all off. The guys in the band have turned into great friends and I feel excited for our collaborative work to be put out there into the world. This post more so though is to promote one of their side projects, Alcoa.
Derek Archambault (vocalist of Defeater) is the man behind the band from Portsmouth, USA, which comes from folky blues roots mixed with country influences. I listened for the first time a few weeks back, and without being bias, I was immediately sold. It’s the sort of music you can listen to before you hit the sack (which is coincidently what I’m doing now). I think diversity in any sort of creativity is key to keeping a lot of things fresh; this musical outlet is a great example of that when compared with the sound which Defeater are so known for.

Playing guitar with Goodtime Boys. An afternoon of fun in Cornwall where the ceiling got smashed in (see photo 3). Extreme fun.
In Brighton this Friday, come see some rich Welsh people play at Concorde 2 for The Great Escape (Rocksound Stage). I was £5 short from this video so I’m there collecting what’s owed from Sean.
I first heard about Bad Rabbits from a bunch of friends of mine in another band who had done some touring with them (Foxy Shazam). Ever since then I’ve been sold on their sound and their grooves. Amazing. This is a song off their new album which comes out tomorrow. The video and the song speak for themselves, but I’m hoping to eventually work with the band as their music is something different from my usual haunts (and different is what I’m after right now).
Literally a handful of these left. They’ve been snapped up. If I get enough interest I might get another 20 or 30 printed, however for now, once these shirts are gone THEY ARE GONE.

Pleased to announce that the new Crashburn Media website has gone live. Please head over to the page now by clicking the above image and check out the new layout of everything. It also features some new clients like Mind Candy of London who I’ll be doing a blog post about soon.
It’s been a labour of love for myself and Sam Manley my web designer, but finally we’re in a new place and it feels GREAT. Onwards and upwards. Please share this post around!
