Forget SuperHeavy-Dave Stewart’s Offspring Crush Their Dad’s New Band
The momentum is building behind SuperHeavy, the band of famous people who are due to release their pet project’s debut album next month.
I’m sure by now most of you know all about SuperHeavy, the group put together by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart and taking advantage of the talents of Joss Stone, Damian Marley, A.R. Rahman, and some guy named Mike Jagger (wait-it might be Mick). I’m not here to debate whether or not SuperHeavy is indeed super heavy, nor is this a review of their debut single, Miracle Worker. In fact, my opinion on the subject can be found over at Sound In My Memory in the comments section of Rob’s post on SuperHeavy which went up yesterday. Rob has even posted the video for the single there, so if you haven’t had a chance to watch it here’s your chance.
The point of today’s post is this:
If you have only a limited budget allotted to buy new music during the course of your day, skip SuperHeavy.
Instead, I suggest you take a listen (and look) at another project Stewart has had a hand in, although in this particular case there are a couple degrees of separation involved. The band is called Nightmare & The Cat, and it features Stewart’s kids Sam and Django (on guitar and vocals, respectively). Some of you may recall the name from a post I did on the lads many months ago, when they were still writing and demoing tracks for their in-the-works EP. Well, that EP is now available over at iTunes, and I recommend you pop over and take a listen.
Here’s Nightmare & The Cat live, performing their song Desert Heir.
