John Ashton’s Satellite Paradiso recently got their debut gigs under their belt. A headline gig at BSP Lounge in Kingston followed by 2 nights playing first support to The Psychedelic Furs at Newton Theatre NJ and the Paramount in Huntington Long Island . These went down extremely well with the knowledgeable crowd and will live long in the memories of those whom managed to attend. (I’ll review this musical extravaganza soon).
As you know, John is funding this new project via Pledgemusic’s website. The items available are unique and are only going to be attainable via this website for 2 more weeks. Once 2 weeks are up (on May 27th) these items will no longer be available. They are destined to be collectors pieces.
Delighted to say John Ashton’s (and his cast of many) Satellite Paradiso’s Pledge page is now live. you can help get his new project up off the ground by making a small Pledge (and there are other “goodies” as well as the music). I use the auld Scots addage “mony a mickle maks a muckle”… which roughly translates to “from many small things, can there be one BIG thing!” :). Just click on the Pledge icon to access the PledgeMusic site.
No Bull – New Furs tour dates for 2014 are starting to come through.. First date of the year looks to be The Maverick Xusic Festival in San Antonio, Texas. In the line up has Roky Erickson in it – local Texan and Founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators, no less..

I recently got to do an exclusive interview with ex-Psychedelic Furs guitarist John Ashton along with vocalist Fred Schreck and drummer Frank Coleman of Satellite Paradiso They’ve posted it up to their official website. Here’s a link to it here

Great audience recording of The Furs classic track “Pretty in Pink” live from the Hard Rock Cafe, Las Vegas. The Furs are now a few nights into their mammoth 40 night US tour. As well as the excellent new track Little Miss World they’ve added a few early tracks from their debut LP – one of which I don’t think has been played live since about 1981!
