Well 2017 is here. Vending Machine Heart had no plans this time last year to reform after so long (just under 10 years) but we're glad we did. 2017 will see the release of our first album 'Welcome to The Club', we hope to do a few shows too. In the meantime hear's a new song.
I just came across this clip which I previously didn't know existed. It's a clip of St Thomas Gospel Choir (when I was a member) performing at Exeter Cathedral on 4 December 2012.
I appeared on Mark and Steve's Phonic FM show last night and played a couple of songs live. I play Can't Be Cool at 25:55 and Welcome To The Club at 48:50. I also had a surprise call from my Vending Machine Heart other-half, Jason, who asked me some 'fan' questions.
So as previously mentioned, Vending Machine Heart are putting out a cover of George Harrison's 'Ding Dong, Ding Dong' on the 26th Dec to celebrate the coming New Year. It's 'b' side is our version of Witchita Lineman.
The new Vending Machine Heart LP is coming along nicely and should be out early spring 2017. In the meantime we're releasing a free download single on the 26th Dec. It's our cover of George Harrison's New Year themed song 'Ding Dong Ding Dong' plus our cover of Glen Campbell's 'Wichita Lineman' - more details soon.
This song is likely to be the last Vending Machine Heart are making public before our LP comes out on Musical Bear 'Records' next year. It's called 'Welcome to the Club'......which is also the name of the LP.
Vending Machine Heart LOVE Mark and Steve who present a well good radio show called The Last Transmission on Devon based independent radio station Phonic FM. On last week's show they played Vending Machine Heart (1hr 17min in). Thanks chaps. You can listen back to their show here...
Vending Machine Heart recently reformed after ten years. This is one of our new songs. We wish to thank Sam Dean for her amazing help with this video and her heartfelt interrogation of the subject matter. VMH felt it would be a neat idea to have some of our songs signed for the deaf and Sam agreed to help. We are truly grateful. Please share this video as we think it's pretty and can be enjoyed by a wider audience than normal. Thank you.
Ten years after our first e.p and a handful of shows with the likes of Caribou and Mindy Smith. 'Vending Machine Heart' have finally gotten around to recording the follow up. Here is our first new song in ten years! Out in early 2017 through Musical Bear 'Records'.
A song about and inspired by the Teign Valley and Dartmoor.
