Kate from Trash Blog and BSTV came down to the last Speak No Evil night at the Macbeth in Hoxton. As I’ve mentioned previously, Speak No Evil is the monthly music event we help organise along with our friends in Georges Kaplan Presents… and JB Newman & the Black Letter Band.
Kate has written a really flattering blog piece about that night, and a rather complimentary summation of our musical efforts on the Black Hay front, including our “wonderfully croonerish quality that references the darker side of Johnny Cash” and “beautiful, maudlin textures” amongst other things.
Many thanks, Kate.
You can check out what this fine young lady has to say over here:
Those lovely folks at Against The Odds have been giving us a bit of blog love recently.
They called the album “Shamelessly good rock served in the most unpardonable of ways” and suggest that it is “played after midnight when you’ll enjoy it’s beauty to the fullest”.
Guess you’ve been told, kids.
The lovely Marietta at crackedwax.com had some nice things to say about our “insanely awesome bluesy inflections”.
I’m loving the deep-throated, twisted rock ‘n’ roll vibes of this track from London-based duo Black Hay, which oozes with raw magnetism, manifested in captivating claps and infectious riffs. While they’ve been compared to the likes of Nick Cave and Mark Lanegan, I’m hearing hints of The Kills in here, along with Edwyn Collins’ “A Girl Like You”, which I love.

It think that’s pretty accurate journalism there. 😉 Apart from the bit about us being a duo. Ah well, the picture is misleading.
