After a long silence due to the fact that I have to make money so I can eat and not be homeless, I’m back with PHASE 2 of this great project you all love with such fierce devotion! The exciting elements of Phase 2 are:
This beautiful new website, based on the WordPress platform
A new EP series called ANTI-PATTERNS
A headline gig in London on March 11th with AMAZING special guests
Other new things
In the next few days I’m going to be posting more information about all these exciting topics, so make sure to add my site to your favourites! Or your RSS reader! And follow me on twitter! Oh, and buy my records!
Incidentally, the production team at 6music favour the font Comic Sans in their correspondence.
[UPDATE: The Bob Marley cover is no longer required by the BBC. We apologise for any disappointment this may have caused you and are fully committed to bringing this important work to the public as soon as possible through other channels]
We would like to apologise for the recent hiatus in posting here at iamtheeuropean.com. This is due to time pressures brought about by our current aggressive program of expansion. Recent developments include, but are not limited to:
Firstly, the album launch party has been scheduled for 22nd February (Edit: rescheduled to 23rd February) at The Stags Head in Hoxton, London. Support acts are being arranged and will be announced here as soon as they are confirmed.
Announcing the release of In A Very Real Sense Now, the debut album by THE EUROPEAN.
Released by Stolen Recordings Ltd on 1st March 2010, this electronic pop epic has taken five years to reach the point where it is ready to be unleashed upon a public utterly unaware that the first true posthistoric supergroup has finally arrived.
In A Very Real Sense Now rejects the staple pop subject matter of romance and facile self-actualisation in favour of themes of compromise, frustration, psychosexual angst and cultural confusion.
The album will be released in the following formats:
Three songs from the album
Audio file download
Luxury vinyl package inc. download
Very limited CDR edition
Purchase information will be posted to this site as soon as it is available.
THE EUROPEAN is pleased to announce that last week, after a long period of careful negotiation, a bit like a good game of chess or D&D, a recording contract was signed with Stolen Recordings Ltd of London, England.
We will be releasing an album in February or so, called In A Very Real Sense Now which will be preceded by a single called The Settler. We are totally 100% convinced that you are going to love it.
Energies and agendas overlap and intertwine
This blog will be updated regularly with posts on a variety of topics, from the lofty to the mundane. Announcements, inspirational texts, bad jokes, technical documents, internet-based artworks and more. Of course there will also be free mp3s, news about concerts, image galleries and everything you could possibly want to know about the most significant pop group of the posthistoric era.
Thank you for reading and listening. Be assured that we are 100% committed to the success of this project. We will not let you down.
