This month I’m focusing on new classical, primitive electronics, minimalism, ambient and original sound tracks - NTS Radio https://www.nts.live/shows/david-holmes/episodes/gods-waiting-room-3rd-june-2019
Watching Unloved perform is like stepping onto a David Lynch Film set! Jade Vincent is one of the most intoxicating and unique performers I have ever worked with. Keefus Ciancia is electrifying on keys, Jay Bellerose is one of the worlds greatest drummers and his rhythm partner Jen incorporates the spirit and style of Kim Gordon - don’t get me started on the Lovettes - Raven, Kat and Sarah have more attitude than the Shangri las and the Ronettes combined. Looking forward to seeing you there! Last remaining tickets for the tour - https://bit.ly/2IDvD1W

Big thank you to Mark Kermode, The lovely folk at the BFI and everyone who came along to witness Mark Kermode: Live in 3D at the Bfi South Bank last night. it was a lot of fun and brilliant to also hear MK’s other guests - Simon Amstell, Carol Morley, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Really insightful as well as incredibly entertaining.
This beautiful young lady with the flower between her teeth is Vicki Savage. I met Vicki in the early 90’s and very quickly we became great friends. Vicki worked in A&R at the legendary Go Discs/Go Beat records in West London (home of the mighty Portishead and Paul Weller). In ’93-94 she offered me a 3 album recording contract - which as you can imagine completely blew my mind and changed my life forever! Each of those three albums were springboards for my subsequent film and recording career - I am forever indebted to Vicki because I appreciate that so many of the opportunities that came my way were a result of that Go Discs album deal. Vicki’s love and passion for music and life was so infectious! She was an amazing A&R woman who cared deeply about her artists and the art of making music – she inspired me to be the best artist I could possibly be. She loved life and you would rarely see her without that incredible smile of hers. She was an amazing human and someone who I will cherish for the rest of my life. Looking back now on our friendship I’m constantly reminded how wonderful she was. Sadly Vicki passed away on Friday 22nd of Feb aged 56 - far too young for anyone to leave this planet especially when she had so much to offer the world. Vicki “ Vichi “ Savage - you were a one off!! You will be greatly missed by so many who love you dearly! I am so grateful for our friendship and everything you have done for me! Forever loved David X
