Tin Foil Hat Chameleon ( Best of The Pocket Gods Vol 2)

THE POCKET GODS

ANNOUNCE NEW BEST-OF ALBUM RELEASE:
‘TIN FOIL HAT CHAMELEON’

+ FEATURED SINGLE: “TELSTAR GURL”
OUT 25TH JUNE 2021

PLUS, LIVE SHOW @ 100 CLUB, LONDON – 29 JULY

Cult indie band THE POCKET GODS, who were discovered by the late John Peel and recently championed by the likes of Tom Robinson from BBC 6 Music, will release the second volume of their best-of in 2021: ‘Tin Foil Hat Chameleon’.

Covering 22 years of their genre hopping madness, veering from lo-fi indie to electro-funk and psychedelic pop; the record will feature fan favourites including “Perfect Blue”, “Superman’s Head”, plus forthcoming single “Telstar Gurl”.

Officially released on 25th June 2021 via Nub Music UK, the collection will also feature brand new tracks “The Ballad Of Dave Insepso” and “Kimmy Loadletter” which is inspired by rom-com My Best Friend’s Wedding and Mike Judge’s cult classic Office Space.

With a tracklist compiling 12 of their finest recordings plucked from nearly 70 albums worth of material, alongside the tell-tale instrumentation of Noel Storey and frontman Mark Christopher Lee, ‘Tin Foil Hat Chameleon’ Vol.2 also features long term drummer Scott Ottaway most famous for his work with 60’s legends The Searchers.

A band with no-less than 3 Guinness World Records to their name including “most tracks on a digital album” and most recently “the world’s longest song” (a track about about making first contact with extraterrestrials that is some 48 hours long), fans can expect more out-of-this world action on this latest collection too.

Featured song “If You See A UFO Who Ya Gonna Call? Nick Pope!” was written as a tribute to the world’s leading UFOlogist, who has also been described as the UK’s Fox Mulder as he used to run the MOD’s UFO desk. (Nick naturally loves the track and tweets it out to his followers worldwide!)

Elsewhere on a similar space-theme, “Telstar Gurl” offers up a chaotic mix of the Ramones and Fontaines DC; a track ultimately about the band’s favourite Belgium pub and almost signing to Telstar Records before Victoria Beckham made them bankrupt…

With a reputation for being one of the most prolific band’s in existence, to date The Pocket Gods have released 67 albums and 40 plus singles and EP since their inception. Formed by Noel Storey (keyboards & sideburns), and frontman Mark Christopher Lee, back in 1998, whilst working at Tower Records in Piccadilly Circus in London; they were originally an alt country band (and even had a pedal steel player) before they were misappropriated by bearded Hoxton hipsters into the eccentric wonders they are today.

Discovered by the legendary John Peel back in 2004 shortly before his death, the band’s cult appeal has infected countless quality broadcasters ever since. Picked up by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens when they won his “Gods Of The Pod” competition in 2006, Tom Robinson fell in love with their lo-fi indie tracks and he invited the band to play a live session at BBC 6 Music in 2010. The band also featured on his BBC Introducing Best Of Discoveries Show in 2017.

Sometimes described as a slightly more tuneful version of Mark E Smith from The Fall and a “Wilful Maverick” (according to Tom Robinson), the band’s latest collection finds frontman Mark Christopher Lee exercising both qualities in spades. Alongside his prolific musical activities, Lee has recently been raising awareness of mental health issues after experiencing a suicide attempt in January 2019. His experience was shown in the band’s own rockumentary – Weird The Life And Times Of A Pocket God – which was released on Amazon Prime and has been described as – “Spinal Tap meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.”

The perfect distillation of everything that makes The Pocket Gods who they are and a choice introduction to one of music’s most towering back catalogues, ‘Tin Foil Hat Vol.2’ will receive its official release on 25th June 2021.
