If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Liverpool band Matchstickmen.
I’ve just found out that they also have a side-project. They are a tribute band for the rock band Stone Temple Pilots.
The band have a new 4-track EP, “Purple At The Core”.
They plan to release one of the tracks from the EP every Monday for four weeks. This Monday they released the first track and it’s fantastic. “Sex Type Thing” is my favourite Stone Temple Pilots song. Matchstickmen have made a brilliant cover version.
You can check it out and download it free on Bandcamp.
The song was recorded and mixed by Lewis Wright (singer). I had a chat with him about the project. He said, “We’re supporting ‘ourselves’ [Matchstickmen] in Rok Box, Wigan on the 22nd October. Our first gig is on 16th Sept in the Fox & Goose, Southport.”
