ME4 Album to be Released at Midnight on Saturday 27th October

It’s almost that time again. The 27th of October sees the release of our fourth annual charity download compilation of Medway music. Once again, it’s at the Nag’s Head in Rochester where we’ll be joined by Crybaby Special & The Monsters, with support from The Muswells, These Guilty Men and Broken Banjo. The music kicks off at 8:30pm and ends at 11pm. These launch nights are very well attended, so get there nice and early.

This year’s album is our biggest yet, with over fifty tracks from local artists and featuring cover art by the brilliant Lupen Crook. It will be available to download via this site from midnight on Saturday 27th October, right after the gig. When you download the album, you will be encouraged to make a donation to this year’s charity. It’s called Holding On Letting Go and is based in Rochester. It supports bereaved children, young people, (6-16) and their families and carers in Kent and Medway who have experienced the death of an important person in their lives. Please donate what you can when the time comes.

We’ll reveal the full line up when we release the album. In the meantime, feel free to plug the hell out of the event and album. You can download a high resolution version of the above poster here.

ME3: Album Line-Up and Launch Details

It’s that time of year again. Medway Eyes is three years old in October, and what a long way we’ve come. Three years of art, music, photography, community and fun can only be a cause for celebration, so that’s exactly what we’re going to do. In grand tradition, we’ll be releasing a download album of Medway music at midnight on Friday 7th October. You’ll be able to pay what you like for the album, and every penny raised will go to Oxjam. The album will be available via http://www.medwayeyes.co.uk.

We’d like to thank the following lovely, fluffy bands and musicians for contributing to the album we have so imaginitavely entitled ME3: The Ambience, Arcelia, Archie Wah Wahs, Baron Von Marlon, Ben Jones, Billy Wears Dresses, The Blissful Mop, Bob Collins, Brigadier Ambrose, Crybaby Special and the Monsters, Damsel, Dave Read, Didi Bergman, Falling Lucid, Firstborn Heroes, The Flowing, Frau Pouch, The Galileo 7, Glenn Barnes, Groovy Uncle, Houdini, James Doyle, The Kids Unique, Los Salvadores, The Love Family, Lupen Crook, Maker, Mr Bridger, One Eleven Edmund, Porlie Eidolon, Reavsey, The Reg Varney Trio, Science Noodles, The Shagmonroes, Simon Bunyan, The Singing Loins, Stuart Turner and the Flat Earth Society, Survivors Of Suki, Tape Error, Theatre Royal, Thomas Turner and the Contents, Tyrannosaurus Alan, Unlucky Fried Kitten, UpcDownc, Wheels, Wolfgang Riot and Z-Stacks.

That’s 47 tracks. Not bad for a dead music scene, eh? We’ll be plugging it shamelessly when we take over Fizzer’s show on Radio Sunlight between 8pm and 10pm on Monday 3rd October.

We’ll be celebrating the launch of the album at the Nag’s Head in Rochester from 8pm on Friday the 7th, in the splendid company of Singing Loins, with support to be announced soon. It’s the landlady’s birthday that day, so expect a top atmosphere. And get there early. It might get a bit busy.

UPDATE 02/10/2011:  We are delighted to announce that Singing Loins will be supported at Friday’s gig by Crybaby Special and Gary Robertson of The Love Family. That’s two more reasons to come along!

ME2: A birthday gig and the download of the year

With another year of community art events and a final salute to the summer behind us, Medway Eyes is crawling back into its autumnal grassroots for a 2nd birthday shindig at the Nag’s Head in Rochester.

ME2 begins at 8pm on Friday 15th October, and features live music from Stuart Turner & the Flat Earth Society, The Flowing and Fires Took Over.

Last year we celebrated our first birthday with a free (but donate if you will) download album of excellent Medway music. This year we’re doing it again, and we have thirty-one tracks of Medway music to blow your head clean off.

The ME2 compilation features hot-off-the-press demos, exclusive tracks and a live desk recording from a much anticipated reunion gig from earlier this year. The ME2 album will be available to download for free from midnight on the 15th October. A button will be installed for voluntary contributions, every penny of which will be donated to Oxjam.

Download the full press release HERE.
