After a year of touring and the release of their ‘Travelled And Unravelled’ EP earlier this year, the Gaolers returned to the studio in July 2008 to record their follow up to the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Soundtrack To The Daily Grind’ with their second album ‘Triple Distilled’ at Ranscombe Studios in Rochester, Kent which is due for release in October 2008.
‘Triple Distilled’ is made up of 12 blistering new tracks with fairly autobiographical lyrics telling tales of their life on the road, drinking and smoking. As usual they are the amalgamation of Graham’s tuneful and aggressive songs, driven with an energy and attitude, which has been perfectly captured in a simple no-frills studio recording.
Buzz couldn’t make the recording so Johnny Barker (Ex of The Buff Medways) has stepped in and will also be part of the band that hits the road again around the albums release for another European tour and a headline show at the legendary 100 CLUB in London on October 29th
A single ‘Begging You’ will be out just before the album backed with an exclusive b-side called ’Sitar Spangled Banner’
Dan Elektro from the great US band The Woggles is on drums.
GRAHAM DAY – Founder member of The Prisoners, Prime Movers & The Solar Flares as well as drummer in The Mighty Caesers and bassist in The Buff Medways alongside old friend Billy Childish.
The NME said of their first album…
‘The first release by his new band The Gaolers is so freakbeat crazed it will have Russell Brand and his child-scaring hair running back to Hogwarts, and is all delivered with a paint-stripping intensity which makes The White Stripes sound like The Feeling. Someone get this man out of the Cult Hero clink and into the charts, fast. Legends have been made of less.’
