Music Submission, The Airwaves

Artist or Band Name: 
The Airwaves

The Airwaves, from Ljungby in Sweden, was formed out of the ashes of the act Swedish Whistler, a band that participated on Pink Floyd tribute discs and the 10 hrs Pink Floyd tribute concert at Brighton, organized by Pink Floyd’s biggest fan club in England (Neptune Pink Floyd). When the band changed line-up to Sussi Johansson (bass and vocals), Patrik Arvidsson (guitar), Jessica Lilleberg (vocals) and Ludwig Johnson (drums) they decided to change name to The Airwaves. In 2006, the band came in contact with Clive Jones from the occult 70s band Black Widow. Along with some friends, he had written a tribute tune to Abba titled “Hey You Ring Me Tonight” and offered the Airwaves the song because he thought the band with his two singers could sound like ABBA. Clive Jones also wrote two additional tracks for The Airwaves to use on “Release”, the bands debut album, released in the summer of 2014. “Hey You Ring Me Tonight” was produced by King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque who also plays guitar on the track while keyboards are performed by Paolo Apollo Negri (Wicked Minds, Black Widow). 1/7-2020 they released a cassette "Bob Dylan Blues" - including another song written by Clive Jones for the band: "I'm Happy"

Music Submission, The Screens

Artist or Band Name: 
The Screens

When we decided to record a second album we set out two conditions.

  1. We were making for an audience and not just for us as a vanity project

  2. It had to have a story and a point and not just a pile of meaningless songs.

Three years ago a close friend of the band, who was 18 at the time, came out as gay to his mum and dad with the latter being unable to accept his son's choice. As a consequence the son attempted suicide several times before eventually being sectioned. It struck a chord with The Screens that family could be divided by a choice one member had no control over and the other suddenly felt a compulsion to put their opinions of sexuality ahead of their bond to their own flesh and blood. It became the beginning of a story that The Screens developed and which they also turned in a short novel called The Boy Who Waved At Trains.

The album of songs is a journey of a boy born in post war London who, as a teenager, discovers he is gay and is thrown out by his alcoholic dad. The boys is forced into a life of male prostitution, drugs, seedy sex parties, brutality......Its not a pleasant story but it highlights what life as a gay man during the sixties would have been.

As big fans of Quadrophenia, and Tommy we wanted to write the album so each song, in chronological order, tells a specific stage of the boys life and that might one day be the basis of an interesting film.

The first condition for making the album was that an audience wanted it and it wouldn't be a vanity project for us so we ran a Kickstarter campaign and invite people to pre order the album on vinyl and CD before we made it. We were relieved enough people stumped up the cash and it meant we could make it.

We plan to delay the album being put on Spotify because The Screens think it detracts from sales as well as radio. The Screens will eventually put the entire album on there but after radio stations have the option to play it.

So that's it. The album is out on 31stMarch 2020. We will service radio stations with a WAV or MP3 of The Boy Who Waved At Trains a week before.

If any DJ's want personal idents from the band please message the office at messagethescreens@gmail.com

Thanks

Rick Young

Manager/ The Screens
