The High Span is a new project based in Rochester, Kent and features three experienced, yet amazingly unjaded, musical souls in Kevin Younger (of Armitage Shanks, Ye Ascoyne d’Ascoynes, Subway Sect, Baby Birkin, The Speed of Sound and others), Mark Aitken (of Ye Ascoyne d’Ascoynes, Bob Collins & The Full Nelson, These Guilty Men and others) and Jimmy Moore (of revered Canadian alt-rockers Rusty, One Free Fall and others).
Their initial run of gigs over the last year or so (pre-pandemic), attracted a lot of interest and this first release is hotly anticipated.
The High Span’s special blend is one of DIY post-pop jangle and edgier experimental sounds, of uncynical guitar-pop and suburban English awkwardness. It’s a peculiar taste, but one worth acquiring.
The first release as The High Span, this four-track EP fires up with the tots TV tragedy of ‘Hamble’ on Side A, moving gracefully into ‘Nee Naw’, a live favourite. Side B kicks off with ‘Got It Getting It’, with the spikier ‘Dynamik 73’ following on. It’s quite a squad.
The twenty-fourth release on the Spinout Nuggets label, this release will be available via www.spinoutproductions.com/shop/, the band and all good musical outlets.
