BLOKE MUSIC Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 5 February 2017, Bloke Music

Glasgow’s Armellodie Records has an impressive pedigree when it comes to releasing original music which pushes the envelop and the label’s latest – an eponymous EP by Bloke Music out on 10 February – is no exception.

A supergroup consisting of difficult-listening stalwarts including former members of Gastric Band and Super Adventure Club, they describe their songs as a blend of prog rock, contemporary classical and Michael McDonald.

We also detect a hint of The Tubes and an Alex Harvey-style vocal which deliver lyrics that eschew the rhyme crimes committed by far too many acts.

Bloke Music reckon that this collection of five songs will “make you pout and gyrate like a pissed uncle at a wedding.” Listen to their lead single Mortise and Tenon below:
