Andy Cairns says: “There’s a Samuel Beckett influence on Tides. I used to live near the harbour in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. I’d sometimes stay up all night to try to get inspiration for songs and often ended up going down to the pier and just look out at the waves. Later on, I found out that Beckett used to get a great deal of influence from that as well. I took that low point in my life and how I managed to dig myself out of it as an inspiration.
“The spark that lit the idea was a quote from his play Krapp’s Last Tape,” he adds. “It goes, ‘Spiritually a year of profound gloom and indulgence until that memorable night in March, at the end of the jetty, in the howling wind, never to be forgotten, when I suddenly saw the whole thing. The vision at last… the fire that set me alight.’ The idea was fortified after listening to Standing By The Sea by Hüsker Dü from their 1984 masterpiece, Zen Arcade.”

Apologies to those of you who have been trying or hoping to order the last of the Gemil Boxsets on Amazon but we have been experiencing ‘stock problems’ with the Amazon system (maybe something to do with all their Black Friday promotions this week?). We think (and hope!) that we have now resolved all the issues and we are happy to report that the Boxset is back up and For Sale now.
Folks, the “Deathstimate” single is out today and features the lead track from our critically acclaimed “DISQUIET” album plus two exclusive b-sides. You can watch the video and stream all the tracks below…
“Therapy? & Sitcom Soldiers bring you a visual and aural presentation, Deathstimate. The track was written under the influence of Black Sabbath, Portishead, Pinter and Fugazi’s ‘Latest Disgrace’. In their fourth collaboration with the band Sitcom Soldiers have complimented the music with a poetic and unsettling video referencing autumnal chill through a Tarkovskyan lens.”
Deathstimate is taken from the bands critically acclaimed 14th album “DISQUIET” and is out October 30th. The release will feature two exclusive unreleased B-sides, “If You’re Driving Pull Over” and “Electricity”.
