Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the official debut album from Birmingham, UK’s Swampmeat, the project of Dan Finnemore (of near-cult acts Low Cut Connie, The Castillians and Black Mekon). “Sister Mary” is the second single from Gin & Tonic, following lead single “Brand New Cadillac” in September.
Swampmeat is the project of Dan Finnemore, former co-frontman of US rock & roll act Low Cut Connie and the drummer of PNKSLM’s own The Castillians, as well as a former member of Birmingham cult act Black Mekon. A long-time cult concern in their hometown of Birmingham, Swampmeat is now ready to step out of the shadows – over ten years after the project took its first steps.
PNKSLM Recordings are proud to release Swampmeat’s official debut release Gin & Tonic on November 25, on limited edition vinyl (distributed via Forte in the UK and Redeye in the US and rest of the world) and through all digital services. Gin & Tonic is a collection of country-fied rock and roll, straddling the edge between country, punk and rock and roll, with great songs and melodies, with singles “Brand New Cadillac” and “Sister Mary” serving as an introduction to the world of Swampmeat for the uninitiated.
Swampmeat is Daniel Finnemore (vocals & guitars) and T-Bird Jones (drums & charm). Gin & Tonic is compiled from Swampmeat’s long-lost albums, originally released on limited edition CD-Rs between 2005 and 2009 by ColdRice Records. Recorded at Fazely St. Studios by Black Mekon and at Sunny Wycombe Studios by Luke Reilly.
Press for “Brand New Cadillac”:
“Harkening back to classic rock’n’roll, amped up with energy, distortion, and an echoing harmonica solo, Swampmeat are setting their own rules – and we’ll be damned if it doesn’t already sound like a mighty fine way to be.” – The Line of Best Fit
“Dan Finnemore is the sort of cult-legend of rock n roll that was born to only be found by a specially deserving few” – GoldFlakePaint
