Ryan Jarman is sitting on a “great record” from his side-project Exclamation Pony, according to Pete Yanowitz.
The Cribs frontman launched the band back in 2012, joining forces with former Here We Go Magic member Jen Turner. The duo performed a number of live shows and released two tracks – ‘Pseudo Individual’ and ‘Mazez’ – via Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records.
Yanowitz, who played drums for the duo, has now revealed in an interview with NME that there’s a raft of unreleased Exclamation Pony music in the can.
“Ryan is a really good friend and there’s a great record we’ve made that nobody has heard,” he explained.
“I don’t know why Ryan is sitting on it, when there’s 15-20 songs that’s some of my favourite music ever. I hope he wants to put it out – maybe if Ryan sees this, he’ll get to it and put it out there.”
The Cribs’ acclaimed eighth record ‘Night Network’ came out last November. In a five-star review, NME wrote: “…This album gives ample reason to be cheerful going forward, and the trio now have a genuine shot at being a force in their own right in this new decade.
“It may begin with a ‘Goodbye’, but ‘Night Network’ isn’t the sound of a run-down band staggering towards the finish line. Far from it – The Cribs have just embarked on a victory lap.”
