We are delighted to announce the release of our third album.


‘The Effervescent Travellers’ will be released digitally on all download/streaming platforms on 14th August.


The track list is as follows

1.) High Rise

2.) Extreme Push Cycle Race

3.) Sur La Dordogne

4.) The Almighty Faff

5.) Mont Blanc

6.) Fred’s Motorhome Extravaganza

7.) Kinky Joe’s Steamboat trip down the River Taff

As can be suggested from the titles, the theme of the album is all about travel in the most vibrant and enthusiastic sense of the word, either inspired from experiences we’ve had or silly scenarios we came up with in our heads!


We look forward to sharing the full album with you.
Additionally, we have a live set all ready to go as soon as shows are allowed to start happening again. Once we are on the road we will also be announcing the release of the physical version of the album.


In the meantime, you can expect to see livestream performances of the new songs after they are released.

Peace!

Below is a video of the three of us playing through the new track in different locations.

Here is a little information from Ryan about the song

‘High Rise came from a guitar riff I had when I was something like 14 years old. It’s taken about 13 years for me to do something with it and being surrounded by massive skyscrapers in Dubai gave me the inspiration for the title and to finish writing the song. In essence, I wanted the technical scope of what we are doing musically to be reminiscent of some of the amazing post-modern architecture that is appearing in cities, it was great fun putting this together and I cannot wait to do it live when we are able to play live again!’

Here are the credits for ‘High Rise’

Ryan Elliott – Guitars, Moog

Jonathan Griffiths – Drums

Mathew Griffiths – Bass Guitar

Recording and Mixing Engineer – Andrew Bishop

Mastering Engineer – Steffan Pringle

Artwork – Dale Johnson

We look forward to sharing the rest of the album with you.

Kinky Wizzards

Our first ever live album is out.

This show was recorded in Cardiff back in September 2021. It was the first show we had done since the Pandemic.

I am delighted to have a record that showcases what we do live and captures our tracks in this format. There’s a frenetic energy to our live performance which was really fun to work with when mixing it!

A big thank you to Andrew Bishop, who captured the recordings, Steffan Pringle for mastering the record, Dale Johnson for the unique artwork and Adam Prosser for the photos.

I hope you enjoy the record and here are the links:

We are delighted to announce our very first live album.

Quirky Musings & The Effervescent Travellers Live will be released both physically and digitally on 6th January 2023.

This was captured all at the same show live at Clwb Ifor Bach in our hometown Cardiff on 10th September 2021. It was our first show after the Pandemic and we still remember the joy and adrenaline we felt playing this show and are so grateful to @Andrew Bishop – Sound Engineer who captured the performance.

We are also pleased to be announcing this record to showcase what we do live to our listeners around the world.

We look forward to sharing this live record with you all.

Ryan, Miff and Jiff.

Time to reflect on 2021.

It was no doubt a stuttered year for so many artists. Lock down was very much in place for the majority of the year but despite all of that we are grateful for the opportunities we had to get some things done.

One of the biggest highlights for us as a band was our livestream performance. It was a joy to share a live performance in the midst of lockdown.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyzOpC3wGr0&t=2120s

Then we took that show live to an audience in our hometown in Cardiff and I think it is the best we have ever played. The relief to play in front of an audience again was huge and the entire night was an exhilarating experience that we can’t wait to do again! Despite living in a digital age, nothing can replace the quality of being in a live performance space with an audience.

We recorded the audio from the desk and will be putting a selection of the tracks on our soundcloud soon.

The plan going forward. We have a full set ready to go and ready to take it out, live shows tbc. We are also writing loads of new material and planning another live video as well, so plenty of things are in place for us as a band in 2022. Unfortunately, the virus is running amok again and disrupting Christmas for many. Our thoughts to anyone reading this who has been affected.

We wish everyone health and peace of mind going forward. Nadolig Llawen.

Ryan, Miff and Jiff.

We returned to the live scene last Friday with a hometown headline show at Clwb Ifor Bach.

We could not have asked for a more enthusiastic and supportive audience and we were quite literally overwhelmed by the support of those who came along.

It is very much on our agenda to plan future shows around different regions in the U.K. and you can follow us here to keep up to date as we announce them.

In the meantime, here are some photos courtesy of Adam Prosser as well as the set list from the gig. Our encore was ‘Stomp Foot Syndrome’.

A big thank you to our support acts, King Curelean and Tobias Robertson, and Andrew Bishop for doing the sound for the evening.
