Although London based band Flashguns recently called it quits in early February with a final show in Berlin, we wanted to bring you this great track from the free sampler via Humming Records, a fine label out of Germany. The original version is taken from the band's Mad Dogs And Englishmen EP. WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | TWITTER | SOUNDCLOUD Download Locarno [Alternative Version] Free Music, Every [...]
Hey folks - hope you all had fantastic Christmases. Normal blog service to be resumed from tomorrow, but first just to sadly announce that terrific London band Flashguns are to split after their Berlin show in February. As a tribute, here's SOIWT's favourite Flashguns song, one more damn time... Click here to view the embedded video.
Schade, die englische Indierock Formation Flashguns haben gestern via Facebook die Trennung der Band bekanntgegeben und damit für große Traurigkeit in der Indie-Szene gesorgt. Bis auf zwei Termine wurden auch alle Konzerte gestrichen. Die Band aus London wird 2012 noch zwei Shows spielen (Termine weiter unten), danach ist endgültig Schluss. Nutzt die Gelegenheit, das erst [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]
Mais uma bandinha londrina excelente. Os Flashguns estão por aí desde 2007, mas o debut só saiu recentemente, chamado "Passions Of A Different Kind". Segundo os próprios, suas referências são bandas como Nirvana, Radiohead, Queens Of Stone Age, The Cure... Mas, ao ouvir todo o disco, tracei uma tendência, mesmo, da banda de buscar a sonoridade de bandas de stadium rock como o U2 e o Coldplay. Um mesmo caminho, diga-se de passagem, trilhado por grupos como o The Killers. O disco tem altos e baixos, mas vale bastante a conferida. A melhor faixa é a [...]
I can't take credit for finding Flashgun , a mate pointed them out to me. Glad he did, aswell as being from being located in Devon (and in London), they make some solid music. They've just released their debut album ' Passions of a Different Kind ' last week which has had a lot of critical acclaim, which I completely agree with as the album is a massive success for the guys. Flashguns - Passions of a Different Kind Flashguns - Come & See The Lights
Debut albums are always difficult. On the one hand you want to showcase your talent and the countless hours of material you've written over the past few years, but there's also the desire and necessity of producing a record that's popular. This is no easy task, especially if the music you're fond of writing isn't currently plastered all over the Top 40 and your scene sees no future. Luckily, UK indie pop isn't exactly a niche sound and fans up and down the country are looking for the 'next big thing'. Flashguns [...]

"passions of a different kind" ist vor wenigen tagen auf humming records erschienen. den kompletten stream können wir anbieten, um Euch einen ersten eindruck vom von luke smith (foals, depeche mode) und barney barnicott (arctic monkeys, kasabian) produzierten erstling der flashguns zu verschaffen. das trio aus london, bestehend aus sam johnston (vocals/guitar), giles robinson (drums) und olly scanlon (bass) schafft sich seit ca. 2007 und sieht sich vor allem in der tradition von the cure, the killers und vampire weekend. Ihr auch? darüber hinaus natürlich bewegte bilder, die wirklich sehenswert sind. [...]
Photo Credit: Olly Scanlon Next week, Flashguns will release their spiffy (yes, you can quote us on that) new album 'Passions Of A Different Kind'. This week, we're premiering the entire thing , one track at a time, here on DIY. Brilliant. The bad news: it's Friday afternoon, which means we're now onto the tenth and very last track - 'Racing Race'. The good news: you can now listen to the album, in full, by clicking a few different links. Here you go: 'Sounds Of The Forest' [...]
"No Point Hanging Around" is the new & leading single from Flashgun's upcoming debut full-length, Passions of a Different Kind, out later this month. Watch the vintage looking... **Summary** Go to website for downloads, videos & more.
Back without any demand, popular or otherwise, here's SOIWT's annoyingly infrequent end-of-week round-up of new videos by London acts we like: Is Tropical - Lies Is Tropical's last video was the stuff of internet legend. This one, directed by "the creative director of America’s only new luxury erotic magazine" (that's like saying 'the only red banana with wheels on Mars in February' in terms of unsurprisingness), isn't quite as good but it does manage to neatly parallel a stripper and a vulture. [There is a video that cannot be displayed in this feed. [...]
'Passions of a Different Kind' is the first album from London band Flashguns. It was recorded and produced with Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode) and Barney Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian) in Somerset and Kent. It has been a long wait for their fans, but I am sure after reading this review they will be really eager to go out and buy it, seriously, you're in for a great début! Having toured with Bombay Bicycle Club, the two bands can easily be musical siblings, they sound similar yet with a different appeal. While BBC are aiming for [...]

Tweet OK boys and girls, quick musical history lesson coming up. Stay with me, it's kinda fascinating. Why were singles traditionally 3 minutes long? Our dear friend Wikipedia says "A combination of technical factors combined with the 10 inch diameter of standard discs limited the duration of recording available on each side of a disc to around three minutes. These manufacturing limits in turn exerted a direct effect on the composition of music, as songwriters and performers increasingly tailored their output to [...]
Gelüste gibt es ja so derer manche. Hunde mit frisch zerhackten Fleischstückchen zu füttern scheint eine der Leidenschaften der britischen Band Flashguns zu sein. Jedenfalls könnte man auf den Gedanken kommen, wenn man ihrem Video zur aktuellen Single «Passions of a different kind» zuschaut. Die Musik ist jedenfalls typisch britisch, modernistisch trendgerecht, aber harmonisch-melodisch wohl abgeschmeckt. Im Sommer soll dann auch das Debütalbum das Licht der Welt erblicken. Auf der Website der Jungs kann man sich übrigens den (nicht sonderlich spannenden) Song «Speed & leisure» gegen Hinterlassung der E-Mailadresse gratis herunterladen. [...]
Flashguns - Passions Of A Different Kind
As former tour partners of Bombay Bicycle Club, you just know that Flashguns are going to spit out some seriously good melodic, angst-ridden indie pop before you've even heard it. That they do, producing a soaring 'shout it if you mean it' chorus that is intertwined with jingly jangly guitars in their latest release Passions of a Different Kind . Whilst the London based 3 piece are veterans on the scene, having been around for a number of years quietly chugging away and fine tuning their sound, they manage to muster up feel good tracks [...]
Passions Of A Different Kind es el nuevo single del trío londinense Flashguns , una de las promesas del pop británico para este 2011. La publicación de su primer álbum está prevista para el verano. Mp3: Flashguns. Racing Race (vía NME)
