The Bug Club’s name does a good job of introducing the band and their music: a tight-knit, collaborative effort focussed on telling tales of the everyday that we often take for granted, shot through with humour and riffs-a-plenty.
The Bug Club have today announced their Irish tour following the release of their latest double album, Rare Birds: Hour of Song. ‘We Can’t All Play Saxophones’ comes hot on the heels of the BBC 6 Music play-listed ‘Marriage’, and offers a gentler side to the band. Albeit a gentler side that’s all too eager to remind us all of our musical inadequacies. Fortunately, the band don’t seem to have any such inadequacies of their own, and this single sets the tone for an upcoming album packed with memorable Bug Club nuggets.
‘We Can’t All Play Saxophones’ is the third track to be revealed from The Bug Club’s second full-length album. Rare Birds: Hour of Song caps off a year that has already seen the band put out a live album (of new, one-off tracks) and an EP. And, what’s more: it’s a double LP which clocks in at an hour and four minutes.
Now then, what could you possibly have to say that takes two records to spit out? Pay attention to this and learn. It’s The Bug Club‘s Hex Enduction Hour. South Wales’ Double Nickels On The Dime. It’s The Faust Cycle for people with shorter attention spans.
