It’s that time of year again when we all gather together with our families to cower inside, terrified of the all-seeing, all-knowing eye of the Crimson One, K’rizz Kringgl, better known as Satan Claus. But as you huddle together for safety, take a moment to gaze back with us, at the year we survived and think of the events that made it so memorable...
There were many good times!
Wills and the Willing released the excellent 'Villa' which made it to #14 on the Music Week Commercial Pop Charts. A well-earned ranking for a great track! Check their new track 'Mercy's Door' with Moya Brennan, the voice of Clannad.
Check it on Amazon or iTunes.
Flicknife Kru mainstays Electric Cake Salad released the EPIC 'Terremoto' last month! Get it here while it’s still shaking.
This album has been FLYING out of our warehouses, and is really making the earth move for the fans. And of course, rising stars in the Kru, Yur Mum, released future classic 'Road Rage' which was a huge hit with new and old fans alike! Get the rage here.
But, sadly, this year wasn’t all happy. With the good, there must always come the bad, and this year had its share of that, as well.
A few months ago, we said goodbye to the Grandmother of Flicknife Records, Valentina Gloder. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her, but her spirit will continue on, in the hearts and souls of all the Kru.
Lastly, fan favourite Kru members, Hung Like Hanratty bid a fond farewell to the Label. While we had great fun working with them, they’ve set sail for new shores. From everyone here, and all the fans, we wish the best of luck to some of the nicest guys we’ve ever worked with!
So, that’s a brief look back at Flicknife’s 2018. To all the amazing people, the bands, reviewers, editors, distributors and other behind the scenes, people who have kept this great wheel turning: THANK YOU! We couldn’t have done it without you.
And of course, to all of you who still read my ramblings, who buy our CDs, stream our tracks and turn up come rain or shine to our gigs.....we cannot express our gratitude for your continued support. Indies never have it easy but you guys make it all worthwhile!
That’s just about it for this blog, and this year! So to everyone out there….
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!
Catch you on the flipside,
Taheg Gloder and the Flicknife Kru.
