Female First have premiered the 3rd acoustic video from the deluxe edition of Fred Abbott‘s Serious Poke album.  One Hot Night is one of three acoustic tracks recorded live in the studio, and captured on video, for the bonus tracks release. Fred commented:

Here’s the last of the live acoustic videos cut down in my basement studio. This time it’s everyone’s favourite Parisian party track “One Hot night”, in a more reflective stripped down setting. This is always great fun to play live. I’m looking forward to hitting the road for some shows with the full band in November supporting The Zombies. Hope to see some of you there!

Fred and his band will be supporting the legendary Zombies for a run of shows in early November:

  • 01 NOV 2016 Aberystwyth, Arts Centre
  • 02 NOV 2016 Aberdare, Coliseum Theatre
  • 03 NOV 2016 Newbury, Arlington Arts Centre
  • 09 NOV 2016 Bath, Komedia

I recently lured the members of my band down to my richly furnished basement studio in South London to record some live acoustic versions of tracks from “Serious Poke”. First up here’s us playing “Awake”, featuring some stirring outro vocals from McGoo. Stay tuned for more coming soon…

Two bits of exciting news! First off, GigSlutz have premiered a new lyric video for the radio version of “Funny How Good It Feels“! A tongue-in-cheek homage to questionable 80’s TV advertising, channel hopping and VHS era living.

Secondly, the new Deluxe Edition of Serious Poke is out now on digital stores! It features 6 bonus tracks of live acoustic versions & remixes.

Featured in The Guardian, Clash Magazine and more, Fred Abbott’s solo career is off to a great start! A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Fred Abbott joined Noah And The Whale in 2009 and went on to huge success with that group, especially notable being his contribution to 2011‘s Platinum-selling and highly acclaimed Last Night On Earth. Abbott enlisted the help of his Noah And The Whale compadres and other friends for the recording of Serious Poke, with sessions taking place at West London’s British Grove Studios over the past year. The album was co-produced by Fred with Martin Hollis, whose diverse credits include Grinderman, The Rolling Stones and Take That.

Tickets for the album launch gig on 31st July at The Borderline, London, NOW ON SALE!
