Icon49 First Underground Nuclear Kitchen

Latest press release...note the updated release date

Artist: GLENN HUGHES
Title: FIRST UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR KITCHEN
Label: Frontiers Records
Rel.Date: 09/05/2008 (May 9th 2008)
Cat.Num.: FR CD 371
Barcode: 8024391037126


Quote:
Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card. He's known as a singer's singer: in fact, Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favourite white singer.

Hughes, a native of Cannock, England, absorbed all kinds of influences, including early British hard rock, the Beatles and, most importantly, American soul and R&B. The sleek Motown sound from Detroit and the gritty Stax/Volt sound from Memphis left their mark on him.

The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was Trapeze, while in 1973 he joined one of the most popular bands in the world, Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale. Any scepticism was squelched with the 1974 release of Burn. This stunning album rejuvenated the band and stands tall among Deep Purple classics.

In the halcyon days, Purple headlined at the famous California Jam in 1974 in front of quarter of a million people. World tours via Purple’s own jet plane, “The Starship” and two more studio albums later, (the Hughes influenced Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band), Deep Purple finally split in 1976.

Now living in Los Angeles, Glenn’s first solo album Play Me Out was released in 1977. He joined former Pat Travers guitarist Pat Thrall to form Hughes/Thrall, which released an acclaimed self-titled album in 1982. Throughout the '80s and '90s, Hughes made countless guest appearances (both credited and un-credited) as a vocalist, bass guitarist or songwriter on other artists' albums, in particular he appeared on the vastly underrated Seventh Star, was officially credited as ‘Black Sabbath Featuring Tony Iommi’. Hughes and Iommi remained friends and in the past few years they have released one brand new studio album together.

More commercial recognition came when the KLF dubbed Glenn Hughes “The Voice of Rock”, proudly featuring him on their international best selling hit single America- What Time is Love?

Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums such as Blues, From Now On..., Feel, Addiction, The Way It Is, Return Of Crystal Karma, Building The Machine, Songs In The Key Of Rock, Soul Mover and Music For The Divine.

Soul Mover saw the continuation of the successful creative partnership with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith that began with Glenn’s live DVD Soulfully Live in the City of Angels (2004). Soul Mover was voted 12th best album of the year by highly influential UK magazine CLASSIC ROCK.

After the release of his last studio album, the successful Music For The Divine in 2006, 2007 saw Glenn make successful tours of Russia, South America, Italy, Norway and Spain, along with solo dates in London - at the prestigious Shepherds Bush Empire - Bulgaria and Greece. 2007 also saw Glenn headline at festival appearances in France and Norway. Glenn also took part in the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp in New York, which was highly successful and he also appeared as a guest presenter at the Classic Rock Awards in both 2006 and 2007. Another highlight of a diverse and colourful year were the 2 sold out solo shows at the famous Whisky in Los Angeles and BB King’s in New York.

Glenn’s new studio album, FIRST UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR KITCHEN is the latest chapter in an extraordinary musical evolution, and is quite possibly the most compelling and positive musical statement in a distinguished career already abundant with highlights and milestones. Chad Smith again plays out of his skin on the drums, and Glenn has rarely – if ever- sounded more inspired, written with such grace, or sung with more passion.

Make no mistake: the Voice of Rock never left the building.

My heart skipped a beat for a second there. I'm waiting for that one artist who lists a release date and puts it out SOONER that expected rather than later.

so near

It isn't that long until it's released but for Hughes fans, it seems like a long time. Already got the samples on the ipod.

peace,

It's available to retailers on the 9th, but I wouldn't expect it to show up on most of their catalogues until the 11th/12th or soon thereafter. However, I would recommend you pre-order it from NEH Records, as they'll be shipping it on the 9th here in the States unless you want to wait that is

i placed an order w/ my normal distibutor at work this week for some music. when i was on the phone w/ her, i asked her to punch up 'glenn Hughes' and tell me when it would be available for me to order so i can stock it in my store. She said that she could not find FUNK in her computer. this is the same company that i've bought all other G.H. releases from. the only thing she saw in her computer that was listed as new from Glenn was the robin george release, that they never got. I told her to check into it and let me know what she could find out, but that's not good news for Papa, if he's not even listed in their computer as a new release this close to the date. it may be no big deal, and everything will work itself out, but i hope that Glenn gets good record lable support in getting his new FUNKy cd properly distributed.
peace to you all,

I'm only "half happy."

The promotional flyer is great.
But the actual CD needs a big, gaudy, neon label, too.
Quoting that famous British philosopher, Mick Jagger:
"Too much is never enough."


PS......purplemusic ~
That's the same response that Phil di Benedetto gave me
when I went to order Glenn's new album from Zig Zag Records.
And Phil knows about, and can usually get.........EVERYTHING.
Wanna' guess how mad it made me, for Phil to ask me "Are you sure?"
And a phone call to WDHA ~ The Rock of Jersey ~ 105.5 FM
gets me the same question: "What new Glenn Hughes album?"
Or even worse........"Who's Glenn Hughes?"


Where's Glenn's publicity?

Oh to see this promo clip given air play on terrestrial TV in the UK!

Would mean so much more than Sheila's Wheels' adverts and all the other drivel inbetween programmes - and then again, sometimes the actual programmes are drivel. All a matter of choice between the off and on buttons.

Thanks for sharing

i'm just glad to see them doing some kind of promotion. i only hope that they can somehow step it up and really get behind glenn's cd. i feel that if the video could get some airplay, more people would certainly buy the cd.
here's hoping
