2016 will be an absolute ripper!
Fergus Maximus was selected as one of the bands for the new Vision and Sound initiative organised by Music SA and Flinders University. In a hugely exciting development, third year students from the Bachelor of Creative Arts in Screen Production are collaborating with local bands to produce music video clips. Ferg met with his director, John, to discuss the overall shape of the clip and it is going to be all kinds of cool. Seriously.
In other news, Ferg has been listening to the mixes for the next Fergus Maximus release (and they sound GREAT! Huge thanks to Matt Williams at Fat Trax Studios). This is a live Fergus Maximus set recorded at The Gaslight Tavern in August 2015, with Ferg on vocals, sax and percussion, Kym on guitars (and stomp box) and Jamie on basses. Some of you were probably there! A couple more minor tweaks and the tracks will be ready for mastering. Which means, of course, there must be a launch party coming!
The ‘One Gaslit Night’ EP will be launched at The Jade on Sunday, 17 July at 5 pm, supported by the wonderful Courtney Robb. The launch will be part of the Umbrella Winter City Sounds Festival and will also be linked in with the Guitars in Bars initiative organised by the Adelaide Guitar Festival. Once ticketing information is available, we will let you know. Don’t miss this one, folks. It is going to be our best show yet!
And speaking of festivals, rumours are that Ferg will have some super exciting news to share on that front really soon! So excited to tell you about that but for now, our lips are sealed.
