Ginger has been at it again. Following the success of last year’s “555%” triple album and this year’s Hey! Hello! and Mutation releases, the Wildhearts frontman has again gone down the Pledgemusic route of raising money for his new album “Practical Musician” and has again hit his target a mere matter of hours after the pledge went live.
Backing Ginger up on this project are his long-term band consisting of Chris Catalyst (Eureka Machines), “Random” Jon Poole (Wildhearts, Cardiacs, Goddamn Whores), Victoria Liedtke (Hey! Hello!), Rich Jones (Loyalties, Amen, Black Halos) and Denzel Pearson. As Ginger himself explains in the introduction video, the aim was to finally get this band of musicians out of the live arena and into the studio to make an album showcasing their talents. If it’s anything like the live shows have been then it’s safe to say that we here at Pure Rawk are VERY excited about this one!
In other related news, Ginger will be holding his traditional Birthday Bash gig at Koko in Camden on December 17th. Tickets are still available so make sure to get yours sharpish!
