Happy Mondays man teams up with Babyshambles

Kav also gets help from Peter Hook

Kav, the guitarist for Happy Mondays‘ recent incarnation, has collaborated with BabyshamblesAdam Ficek and New Order and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook on his debut album.

The record is currently being recorded in east London, with other guests including The Infadels and Datarock.

On the collaborations on his album, Kav said: “It’s amazing to work with the Infadels guys because they’re one of the most musically talented British bands around, and also The Thirst, who are signed to Ronnie Wood‘s label, Wooden Records.

Peter Hook, Datarock, and Adam from Babyshambles are also going to be laying down tracks – as are some other special guests. The album is going to be a mix of dirty rock ‘n’ roll and electric blues.”

To celebrate the release of his new EP, ‘The Blaggers And Liars EP’, Kav is performing at The Macbeth in east London with The Cavaliers on April 4.
