The songs they play, and which they've recorded for release, are primarily the ones you'd expect with a couple of curveballs. Despite the persistent calls for it from the back of the room, there's no Brave New World. Yet like when Nirvana didn't bother with Smells Like Teen Spirit on their majestic MTV Unplugged album, it's not missed at all musically. What they do in its place is unravel songs and rebuild them with subtle layers replacing the adrenaline and anger - equally so on old favourites like ICB Blues and L'Etat C'Est Moi as well as on second album Fantasises Of A Stay At Home Psychopath's Something Wicked This Way Comes and Lunatic With A Loaded Gun.
The Lounge Lizard Session album is released on July 23rd. Signed copies of the white vinyl version are available from Piccadilly Records.
The Blinders are still scheduled to play the following shows - Sheffield Tramlines Festival (July 23), Doncaster Regent Hotel (25), London Electric Ballroom (September 16), Leeds Brudenell Social (18), Newcastle St Dom's (19), Glasgow Garage 2 (20), Sheffield Leadmill (22), Nottingham Rescue Rooms (23), Birmingham O2 Academy 2 (24), Oxford O2 Academy (25), Bristol Thekla (27), Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (28), Brighton Chalk (29) and Manchester Albert Hall (30). They are still trying to reschedule their July and August tour dates.
