First of Many....

....great album reviews for "Last of Many"!

"From the early Beatles on speed wig out of Suzy all the way through to the album’s climax, the brooding meltdown of Sorry To Leave You the album’s jammed full of one classic sounding track after another......all human emotion’s on offer here folks, often wrapped up with a dash of wry wit. Musically it’s pure British pop gold."


"The début album hands over to you almost always a rock/pop song that you've come to know so well, but can hear over and over again!! "


Fancy getting your hands on an advance copy of the album? Fancy writing a review even if you've never written one before?! Email nigel@thefoxesband.com and tell me why you'd like to review it! Best reviews published here. 


MUSIC VIDEO NEWS.


The newest music video for our album is for "The Sad Thing" and is up now:



This was filmed at Survival Studios in North Acton, without telling them about the incredible fire hazard we were going to undertake, using my little hand held digital camera (Panasonic HM-TA1 the geeks!) and I then edited the footage together using Windows Movie Maker - which isn't the most ideal program for this sort of thing, but hey ho....

Award winning...

I'm thrilled to tell you that the video to 'No Reply' has won a top award at the Digital Arts Festival in Somerset - with judges including part of the team who made the famous "Wallace and Gromit" animated shows, Terry Thomas came first place with the video to 'No Reply'...which was...

..."for his older brother's band, The Foxes, and was a technical achievement, lip synching a claymation puppet's lips and guitar strumming to the soundtrack. Terry painstakingly captured every frame with a webcam and used various other software to scrub each image to look its best."

The next music video...

I'm working on is for 'Send Me Nothing' - a great up-beat track written by our guitarist Jon which you're going to LOVE. It'll be ready in a week or so because without wishing to spoil anything, I'm making it by sifting through over 1,700 photographs taken at the same session we filmed 'The Sad Thing' - but here's a sneak photographic preview...(click on the pictures for the big versions)





U.S. podcast first!

Fancy hearing the unreleased first track, 'Suzy' off our début album? It's ready to hear on this "Best of British" podcast from North America about 15 mins in. Click here to listen now.

I've just seen that 'Run' is also featured on their latest podcast! It's at 13 mins 29 seconds in. Click here to listen now.


And finally....

* I'm playing an acoustic set this Saturday (29th October) at The Vesbar in Shepherd's Bush for the Shepherd's Bush Oxjam Takeover. I'm on stage at about 8.30pm and will be in full zombie gear - so come down, it's all for a great cause with over 40 live acts across six local venues.

* I can't believe the Steps album go to number 1 in the UK album charts!! Nor can I believe that I actually quite like Noel Gallagher's latest single (let's keep this between you and I, ok?)

* I did a little photo shoot with Rich Newman just down the road from where I live in Wandsworth. Check it out here. 

* We'll be featuring the amazing artist Owain Thomas (no relation!) on the next blog - as well as doing the artwork for our last EP and forthcoming album, he painted the piece or the right for the album booklet, based on this photo by Tina Sheikh from Magic Photography.

* Our big album launch party plans will be announced soon!

Much love, 


P.S. My solo album 'Third Movement'  had this rather lovely review.
P.P.S. There'll be a music video to 'Third Movement' very soon, made by Fry Films - the same lovely people who made the 'Bill Hicks' and 'Lover, Killer' videos.
P.P.P.S. I want to make a new  Facebook account and the name will be 'Nobody' so when I see stupid rubbish people post, I can Like it. And it will say 'Nobody Likes This'.
