Singer-slash-one-man-Arctic-Monkey-slash-songwriter Eugene McGuinness tours new album and has a new video.
Singer-songwriters? DiS can pretty much take them or leave them. Just because you've got an acoustic guitar and can pen a little ditty doesn't mean you should. Chances are, it'll be a bit shitty. See, it's easy... Anyway Eugene McGuinness is a massive exception to this rather clumsy rule, and he's got a couple of releases on the horizon that you should know about.
First up comes the self-titled début LP (following last year's 9/10 rated mini-album) on October 13th, with a single, 'Moscow State Circus', following fourteen days later. Both releases are via Domino.
There's a tour, too, including a date at Sheffield's DiScover Club next Monday:
22 Sheffield The Harley (DiScover)
23 London 229 (with band)
24 Cardiff Buffalo
28 Bristol Start The Bus
29 Bournemouth 60MillionPostCards
