New Single: ‘TOM HARDY’ (Available now)
“…exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time and how often can you say that.”
Dr John Cooper Clarke
To celebrate Tom Hardy’s nomination at this year’s Oscars, rising Welsh rock stars TRAMPOLENE release a new single, on Friday 26th February. Entitled ‘Tom Hardy’ the song is a hilarious paean to a mythical star’s mind-boggling achievements and was inspired by the idle boasts of singer Jack Jones’ school friend in Swansea… and it rocks like a bastard! The single, which was recorded live at Konk studios and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Florence & The Machine/The Maccabees), is available as a free download from: https://www.musicglue.com/trampolene/ or listen here: https://youtu.be/K-aEPxHabyg
TRAMPOLENE singer Jack Jones was personally invited by Peter Doherty and Carl Barat of The Libertines to perform on their sell-out Arena tour in January. Jack performed two of his extraordinary poems ‘Ketamine’ and ‘Pound Land’ then welcomed the Libertines to the stage in front of 20,000 baying fans, an experience the Swansea dole queue daydreamer will not forget in a hurry.
