When Push Comes To Shove
LP, CD + Digital. Out NOW on Possession Records.
“Chin Up contains 11 tracks of what might be loosely described as “ambient synth pop” with a running time of almost an hour. It is in a way a mirror release to When Push Comes To Shove as both records share the same approach to composition, sound design and production techniques but with different results.”
Starting tomorrow, the Gothic Pogo XIV.5 Livestream commences with 3 days of musical acts and DJs from around the world. Along with a live/studio Soft Riot performance of three songs, there’s a bunch of other video treats that have been created for this online festival upon request of the fine folks at Gothic Pogo.
“Jack Duckworth is a synth-driven journeyman who has delivered leftfield sounds across multiple projects over the past 25 years. For the past decade, he’s developed a sizeable, sinewave-forward solo catalogue as Soft Riot.”
Also known as Three Broadway Girls, this number is a fun gem from the Pre-Code era of Hollywood Films that came near the end of Prohibition in the US and around the start of the “talkies”, showing a window to an era of free spirited film-making. It’s the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun of the classic Hollywood era.
