Gary Le Strange

29 November 2015

 Just to let you all know about the creation that is Gary Le Strange, if you could imagine Gary Numan, Soft Cell and Ivor Biggin morphing into one it would probably create Gary Le Strange. A very refreshing and funny change to the constant drudge of a typical day. 

FINALLY! Hot on the heels of (well, seven months later than) his smash hit Easter video SHUT UP MUM, the eccentric but entirely sane cult synth-rocker Gary Le Strange is about to turn your political world upside down with his latest effort, I AM A VIDEO.

Proudly describing it as "a 4-minute socio-political dance thesis," Gary explains that his new single was originally written for his unfinished third album Glamoronica, but abandoned when he felt the global record-buying public weren't quite prepared to be dazzled by such uncompromising brilliance, nor were his chief financial backers prepared to stump up the cash to make the necessary video to go with it.

As Gary says, "it's hard to believe this prophetic slice of pop doom was written over ten years ago, yet it's just as relevant today as it was then. Especially the bits about George Bush and Osama Bin Laden, and the stuff about them wrestling naked on the beach." With its four-to-the-floor hardcore dance beats and its hard-hitting but easy-to-follow political message about video culture or Western decadence or the human condition or something, it's a song that most if not all of the family can both sing and tap their feet along to. Providing they have vocal cords and/or feet.
Produced by British actor, comedian and composer Waen Shepherd (as seen or heard in Hyperdrive, The Inbetweeners, Crackanory, Murder in Successville and Steve Oram's critically-acclaimed feature film AAAAAAAAH!), this cluster-f***ing new pop sensation is available to buy on Amazon, CD Baby and various other mysterious outlets from Tuesday November 24th, with a whole slew of other online musical boutiques and internet radio stations to follow.
To celebrate this wonderful release, Gary will be supporting the mighty Tenek at The Garage on Highbury Corner, North London, on Saturday November 28th from 6.30 pm as part of the celebrations for the launch of their brilliant third album Smoke and Mirrors. Tickets and more info available here: http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/tenek-smoke-mirrors-album-launch-party-tickets/179213
MOST IMPORTANTLY, the sumptuous video, directed for an impressive budget of several pounds, is available to view on Gary Le Strange's official YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDrS-FgD53s, so delay at your peril!

Yours sincerely
