Nice work Bemuzic and Buggy. It's great to hear CBG artists being creative and original. I've always thought the real test of CBGs as a concept was whether they could get beyond the stage of people just knocking out endless blues cliches and lead to something genuinely different. You guys show how that can be. Buggy, I love your opening track "Hang", a neat mix of bluesy influences and dance mix groove. And Bemuzic, I love "Haruki Murakami" - truly original sound and literary influences as a bonus! The title track "Simplify" is great too - your vocals seem to have an added confidence these days without losing your characteristic delicacy.

The Legendary Pignose is back! We have just taken delivery of a batch of these cute, cult 1970s classic battery amps. They are an ideal companion to your cigar box guitar  - compact, simple and raucous. Available in original tan vinyl, plus limited edition snakeskin or tweed.
