Trampolene have almost finished their debut album too
Trampolene have shared new single ‘The Gangway’, while singer Jack Jones has published his diary following the trio’s appearance at Glastonbury last weekend.
‘The Gangway’ previews the Welsh band’s debut album, which follows their three ‘Pocket Album’ releases of mini-albums mixing music and Jones’ poems. The single can be heard here.
Jones recently supported The Libertines on their arena tour as the band’s poet-in-residence, as well as playing guitar on Pete Doherty’s solo tour.
In the diary, Jones said Trampolene have nearly finished recording the album at Konk, the London studio owned by former Kinks singer Ray Davies. Jones wrote: “The album is getting closer, closer and closer. I can almost smell the vinyl pressing.”
Jones, who wrote the poem ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go?’ ahead of the Brexit votes, said he was horrified by Britain’s decision to leave the EU. He wrote: “Nigel Farage says it’s a win for ‘ordinary, decent people’. What does that make us then, you c**t?”
In his diary, Jones revealed that Trampolene’s car got stuck in the mud trying to get off site on Sunday night, before being rescued by a passer-by. He concluded: “I cannot waste this moment, these moments. Life and moments must never be wasted.”
Having also played at Isle Of Wight Festival, Trampolene next appear at Latitude.
