Following a summer of festival performances, Recreations (Sam Duckworth, formerly Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.) will embark on a tour of south coast seaside towns throughout October, in what will be a celebration of these provincial British holiday destinations.
The run comes after two very special performances in his hometown of Southend On Sea – one at legendary venue Chinnerys and the other at the end of Southend Pier as part of the Estuary Festival. At both gigs, Recreations will play Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.’s debut gold-selling album The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager in its entirety before putting the mouthful of a moniker to bed forever with a Viking funeral.
Full dates are:
01 Southend @ Chinnerys
02 Southend @ Pier
13 Bournemouth @ Anvil
14 Worthing @ Bar 42
15 Ipswich @ South Street Studio
20 Hastings @ Observer Building
21 Ramsgate @ Music Hall
22 Eastbourne @ Printers Playhouse
Coinciding with the announcement of these dates, Recreations has made available a live EP recorded in Hamburg earlier this year. Live At Lux EP – out 9th September 2016 - features ‘Pipe Down’, ‘Red Spex’, ‘Built To Last’ and ‘Shake It Off 2’ showing how incredible his one-man performance is in the live arena. Watch a live performance of the single ‘Pipe Down’ which is currently soundtracking the summer by being blasted out across 6Music courtesy of Steve Lamacq and Radio X on the Xposure Playlist. Watch the live performance video below.
Recreations released the self-produced debut album Baby Boomers 2 back in April. It’s a collection full of wide-eyed, big-dreaming, conscientious pop songs that are undeniably /him/, but delivered with looser funk, crisper electronics and notably less tubs to thump on. In more ways than one, it sees Duckworth get his groove back.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Recreations’ creative output continues apace with an EP of brand new tracks to be released very soon. More information to follow.
