Famous Graves, their first album for Xtra Mile Recordings, has been described as “a collection of good. honest punk jams for us all to enjoy” by Rock Sound, and Kerrang! said “(it) will entertain you, your mum and your 70-year old grandma all at the same time….they rock in all the right places”.
Check out three songs from the album that the band recorded for a radio session in the States including the recent single ‘Knock Me Over’ which gained plays and support at XFM and Amazing Radio:
The album title came from the band’s habit of visiting cemeteries in the towns they visit to see if anybody of note has been buried there. They’ve seen everyone’s grave, from Bon Scott in Perth to Ian Curtis near Manchester. The second meaning for the title is, as bassist/vocalist Ian Graham explains, a bit deeper. “The phrase started taking on the idea of common error, It refers to obvious ways to make mistakes - ways to get caught doing the same thing over and over.”
We hope this trip makes good use of the first meaning!
“You could see them sharing a stage with the likes of The Replacements, REM and Dinosaur Jr. and more than holding their own.” - Big Cheese
