Benni Hemm Hemm - Retaliate EP

Benni Hemm Hemm release their eagerly anticipated new EP "Retaliate" in April. All 5 songs were self-recorded by Benni with Emily Scott (double bass) and Peter Liddle (horns) in his Edinburgh home and marks his first release entirely in English (or Scottish according to the press release). You can expect "knives, gold, lazy pioneers, confident talibans, blood thirsty vampires, Stan-Stan-the-caretaker-man and last but not least blood, lots of blood".

1. Retaliate
2. Blood On My Blood
3. Church Loft
4. Shipcracks
5. Blood On Lady Lawson

I was lucky enough to be at Stereo last year to hear a sneak preview! In particular, I went away that night with "Blood On Lady Lawson" stuck in my head. If you can't wait 'til April you can hear the title track over at and they'll be on tour in March as a trio:

Tour Dates
24th - Whelans, Dublin
25th - Windmill Brixton, London
27th - Jericho Tavern, Oxford
28th - Buffalo Bar, Cardiff

with a special 7 or 8 piece band set at Bloc in Glasgow on the 30th. In the meantime though you can buy previous albums Benni Hemm Hemm (2006), Kajak (2007) and Murta St. Calunga (2008) over at Kimi Records. All three are highly recommended!
