This may have slipped under some of your radars as I didn’t push this one as much as I pushed SOTO – but my new album Counterfeit Goods is out right now for the low-low cost of ZERO POUNDS AND ZERO PENCE* (which is about $47).
In it, I take a We’re The Smiths-style approach to all the songs, but paying tribute to (mocking) 10 artists with my silly brand of cheap rhymes and authentic accents, and it’s absolutely free!*
With the help of a-not-so-anonymous assistant (who actually did like 90% of the work but I’m a massive sexist), I’ve also managed to sort out my music page so it looks somewhat presentable which I am really enjoying – send your thanks to Thryn! Information pages are also slowly being drawn up for each song, so you can find out that little bit more about them. I call it Forbesmore.
I’ve set up a little donate button on the side (if you’re reading this on Facebook, which chances are, all of you are, the link is at benforbes.com) because, while I’m not in this music thing to make money, each song does take a fair amount of time to write and record and stuff, and if you like it enough to give me real money for it, then feel free to grease my wheels of production. FORBES, YOU FUCKING SELLOUT
Lastly, I have a gig coming up (though no event page has been created yet) at my old haunt, the Birdcage, Norwich, on the 13th July, and if any of you local types are feeling up to it, I would love for you to be there. Thanks to all of you who came to my online gig last week as well, it was great fun as ever.
Over and out!
* haha, made you look. It is free, though, no catch
