Matt Finucane Brighton, UK

Brighton based singer/writer/horror freak Matt Finucane takes his influences from Lou Reed, Mark E Smith and horrible electronic noise (despite primarily performing on acoustic guitar), and is happy to be “an explorer and purveyor of the wonderfully unconventional and confrontational”, as Ringmaster Reviews wrote. He’s always working on new material, now with a live band. ... more

Track Name: What Comes Next
well this is a snotty little number
Track Name: The Black Membrane
The black membrane
Covers everything
And what's worthwhile
Feels like nothing
I said the black membrane
It covers everything
And what's worthwhile
Feels like nothing
You're calling out to something
That just doesn't want to know
It's brute misunderstanding
And as for me
As for me... I get the whole spectrum
Sometime's it's black
Sometimes it's grey
You know it varies from day to day...
And I just don't know
Are you ready to fly?
The world's shorter now
But heavier
You can watch yr neighbour squirm
And the heroes
Are low
And a hand points over
Yr shoulder into darkness
A hand points over yr shoulder into darkness
Track Name: Phantom Party
Oh the night is soon in coming
There's just no way
To escape it
People blow in like an evil smell
To angry lost ones from a single cell
They grew
Do they mean you harm
Mean you harm?
The coin falls in a copper sky
Laughter echoes as the light fails
Strange and frightening
Rushing in
At night... at night
The city's rich with invention
Lit windows like votive candles
There's a phantom party glow
Coral lights of office blocks
As the black tarmac flashes past
Headlights, headlights, headlights, headlights
At night... at night
World becomes a haunted village
Closeness drops down in veils
Cobwebs on the internet
Ghostly whistlers on the hill
Whistling for
The crack of doom
Release control, release control x2
