WHATEVER HAPPENED to Tom Vek? I wore the arse-end out of ‘We Have Sound’ (2005) when it came out, saw the bloke twice in Whelan’s within the space of a year (still one of the best bands I’ve ever seen at that venue), and then he seemed to disappear from the face of the planet.
There have been rumours that he’s working on his second album for 3 or 4 years at this point, but no official line has ever been given. As far as I can recall the guy was a graphic designer before turning musician, so perhaps he’s decided that a 9-5 desk job is more profitable than rock ‘n’ roll stardom. He’d probably be right. Get your finger out, Thomas.
Until then, enjoy this masterful display of post-punk-disco-indie-rock-dance.
