Pick up the new CLASSIC POP for a wee career-spanning interview with Chris Constantinou. “Duran boys / Adam /Roxy Music / Pet Shop Bys etc etc in this mag .. great read actually,” sez CC. The first page is gratis here, but this ain’t no library, mate, pick up CLASSIC POP at your local magazine rack, airport lounge, or beauty salon.
Next week CC, Paul & Rat start writing and recording backing tracks in Wandsworth at Sugar Cane Studios (what used to be Raezor Studio) for The Mutants ‘Desert Album’ sessions in Nov/Dec this year in Rancho De La Luna, Joshua Tree, California.
We are hoping that we can coincide with The Dandy Warhols live dates at the same time in California. We’ll keep ya posted.
I DON’T KNOW WHY you’re not following the Official Mutants pages and socials and whatnot, maybe you think you’re too good for timely rock and roll information?? Why would you think that? You’re kind of a stuck up mess! You are missing out on all CC news, it seems, just because of your messy, messy pride. Get a grip!
THE MUTANTS – are in TOKYO (again) this time to jam with their TOKYO NIGHTS collaborators such as Guitar Wolf, Jackie & the Cedrics, The 5678s, The Let’s Go’s, Kannana Speedcats, Mr. Pan of Neatbeats +MORE MORE MORE. 12 June! Gig Info: HERE
THEN: 13th July, the record (TOKYO NIGHTS) comes out on Killer Tracks.
So why don’t you pay more attention to THE MUTANTS? CC’s got other things going on TO BE SURE, but this is what’s happenin’ right now, so get with the program, Charlie.
Courtney Taylor-Taylor and Chris Constantinou polish up on The Dandy Warhols classic LOU WEED at London’s Brooklyn Bowl, July 2014.
Even with two more Mutants albums coming down the pike in 2015, CC’s not just sittin’ around eatin’ bon bons and combing his hair. In the new year you can expect an all-new new CC EP to be mixed by CTT – that’s Courtney Taylor-Taylor of The Dandy Warhols. I don’t have any concrete details, but I do know Chris is super pumped. So yeah, just a little tease there. Cheers, happy holidays.
Cc will be perfomring with Holy Holy (the legendary Tony Visconti + crew) on Monday the 22nd at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. They’re doing Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ which is pretty flippin special so you don’t wanna miss out.
