Time of the Lunatics by Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves official music video by Boshpit Productions
Here is the official music video for Time of the Lunatics from This Can't Get Any Worse, the debut album by Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves out now via Howling Invocations, thanks to Boshpit Productions for doing what we think is a brilliant job. The video was filmed at Studio 24 Edinburgh at the album launch for This Can't Get Any Worse, which was an insane evening and this video perfectly captures the amazing atmosphere of the evening. We are all very happy with this and Boshpit Productions! Watch it multiple times, buy the album and share this post ta!

Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves live at Studio 24 Edinburgh November 2014 album launch for This Can't Get Any Worse
It's always nice to have a gigantic intimidating skinhead in a Status Quo Blue for You shirt playing a solo on a beer bottle as you play your guitar. If this is an experience you are not familiar with then I suggest you try it out immediately. This was quite good, more often than not the wha-wha pedal controls your own facial expressions, occasionally it controls the facial expressions of audience members. In this instance, the wha-wha pedal was in charge of us both. In case you didn't already know, this particular old-school giant is Matt who plays bass for Mastiff and Shitball.

In December 2013 I found myself recording a new solo EP, in one very stressed out seventeen hour session at Mountain Sound Recording Studios in Hull, produced by Paddy Tobin. The whole thing was written, recorded and mixed on the spot. I had no equipment of my own with me and just used the studios interesting and unique collection of weird old valve amps and guitars that I really wasn't used to. The whole thing was very interesting and I am pretty happy with what I came out with.
I'd never even played a baritone guitar before and totally fell in love with it, all the songs were written on this, these are a couple of the fucked up old valve combos that I used for everything, really really nice sounding even though I couldn't get them to distort! I let the equipment lead me as to what the music should sound like.

Five tracks of psychedelic punk rock and roll, recorded at mountain sound studios in Hull December 2013, produced by Paddy Tobin. Out now on Howling Invocations! Everything played and sang by Tommy Concrete except the drums which were hit by Paddy. This EP was done in one seventeen hour session, for no reason other than why not!
