1 Paul McLinden- Rocketa/p
Glasgow’s Paul McLinden releases his new single ‘Rocket’, through Oneinchpunch Records. Taken from his second album ‘Foggy City Orphan’ (also out 28th May), it’s backed by a video that sees a tortoise taped to a firework and sent into space! This new material follows on from Paul’s debut album ‘This Is That’, a release which earned him critical acclaim and music beds in CSI and One Tree Hill, a grand feat considering Paul doesn’t even own a telly. The new album was recorded at Glasgow’s Chem 19 studios with Admiral Fallow’s Louis Abbott on drums and is loosely based around Charles Dickens (‘Foggy City Orphan’ being the Chinese translation of ‘Oliver Twist’). Paul recently finished some dates supporting Pete Doherty and is making plans for more UK shows, details of which will be announced soon.
