All publicity is good publicity.
When your band split up in 2004 yet still manage to be tipped as an up-and-coming one to watch for 2015.
You can’t have missed Russell Brand’s ...spat with a city worker in December, and Joseph Kynaston Reeves’s subsequent open letter calling Brand a bellend of the highest order, or words to that effect. What you may not have picked up from the story is that London has a new political musician to tell us how to vote on 7 May. Kynaston Reeves, self-professedly of the ‘right-wing persuasion’, is in a band called Squander Pilots, which he could now use to put Boris Johnson into the previously surely unwinnable seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip. Here is the Squander Pilots’ track Given. Tragically, it’s really not bad.
Work continues apace.
OK EVERYONE. Due to the change in personnel and the dawning of a bright new era and because we like accents, we are no longer Squander Pilots; we are Mašīna. Yes, Mašīna, that's us all right. It's pronounced "MAsheeNA", if you care. Although quite frankly if you enjoy the music and spread the word you can pronounce it "bastards" if you like.
Ah, yes, the music. New song to follow in just a few minutes....
