EVERYBODY’S ICON (Live In Session) 2021 from the KEROSENE “EXISTENCE IS FUTILE” album
Recorded LIVE IN SESSION over the last few months during COVID-19 lockdown measures the band have selected 12 tracks spanning their 30 years. With all their normal full-on live dynamic, the band had to record remotely with a simple plan: one practice run through, and then record! The result is a powerful set of specially curated songs, from their debut single SINK on the Dead Dead Good label in 1992, a fully re-programmed update of 1993 single EVERYBODY’S ICON (complete with this updated 1992 vs. 2021 video), a cover of Def Robot’s A MOVER & A SHAKER and a punked-up version of arthouse cinema homage FORMULA ROCK.
The album is available on CD and CASSETTE via their Bandcamp site, with the ICON single on streaming platforms 14th March, two weeks prior to the full album streaming.
