Well this was a bit of a surprise wasn’t it. After 6 years in the wilderness, who else should bust through the fabled swinging doors of the ‘Last Chance Saloon’ than no less than Mr Thomas Timothy Vernell-Kell.
A Chore, is the first single to be released off Tom’ forthcoming, and completely out of the blue second album ‘Leisure Seizure’. To those unfamilar with Tom Vek (I don’t blame you, he did do a Lord Lucan) the attractive young blonde Debbie Harry look-a-likey is not actually Tom, but I’m sure he could probably bang her whenever he wants being a bit of an indie leg-end and what have you. No, Tom is the clean cut early 60’s TV executive pulling the strings. As you can see below he’s going for a much cleaner look nowadays, somewhere in between Dave Brubeck and Buddy Holly.
‘Leisure Seizure’ is released on 6th June and the man himself will be playing a few shows through June promoting it which go on sale on 20th April. I recommend you move quick because those bad boys will sell out faster than the latest reality TV sensation. The dates are;
Mon 13 Manchester Ruby Lounge
Tue 14 Glasgow Classic Grand
Wed 15 Birmingham HMV Institute Library
Thu 16 London Heaven
Sat 18 Brighton Concorde 2
As soon as we get our mits on the album we’ll chuck up a review.
