The Wolfmen follow-up Two Eyes, the NUMBER ONE smash on the BBC Asian Network chart from November 2007 with a brand new single, a delicious collision of glam-rock and punk-rock – Needle In The Camel’s Eye (out 14.04.08) – and news of a debut album.
The band is formed of Marco Pirroni (Siouxsie & The Banshees/Adam & The Ants/Sinead O’Connor) and Chris Constantinou (Adam Ant/Jackie Onassid/Iggy Pop). But as RADIO 1’s Bobby Friction says, “They’ve got pedigree, a full-on pedigree. I’ve been playing them on Radio 1 but – you know what? – f*** pedigree, they’re an amazing band and they’re going to take you somewhere else musically…”
Needle In The Camel’s Eye is mixed by Alan Moulder (THE KILLERS, U2, ARCTIC MONKEYS, Smashing Pumpkins) and is taken from The Wolfmen’s highly anticipated debut album – due in July 2008 – which follows a string of acclaimed vinyl/download-only releases, all of which have quickly sold out their limited edition 1000-only runs, winning rave reviews including:
“Marco and Chris do growing old disgracefully moves with style. With thumping Suicide-alike beatbox and glam-rockabilly guitars, the A-side is exuberant filth…” — MOJO
“Is (Marco & Chris’) music as necessary in 2006 as it was nearly 30 years ago? In a word, yes. In more words, too f***ing right it is.” — BBC.co.uk
The Wolfmen are also PLAYING LIVE throughout 2008, next show is at the 333 club in Old Street on Thursday 17th of April. Guest list and photo passes available now!
Needle… is a cover of classic BRIAN ENO, from his first post-Roxy Music solo album – 1973’s Here Come The Warm Jets – described recently by Paul Morley as “The only Eno record of it’s kind, and the only record of it’s kind… Pumped up with hammy Roxy feeling, Eno as half man, half theorist, or half genius, half pervert.”
