The Big Nowhere - NEW 'Pull Down The Moon' album

The Big Nowhere

The music on 'Pull Down The Moon' has been described as anything from rock, folk, country, americana,, to a mixture of any two of those. Like every band, The Big Nowhere recoil in horror when asked 'What do you sound like?'.

The album has the feel of a kind of record that just doesn't get made any more. Think of albums by artists like The Band, The Replacements, Gene Clarke, Tom Waits - not afraid to use different styles of music, but still retain the essence of the band or the artist responsible. The ability to tell stories via songs, or just to try and evoke some kind of feeling through the music.

'Pull Down The Moon' has as its centrepiece, three songs inter-linked by common theme - "Johnny Walker Red", "My Name Is Bob Willis" and "Song For Suzannah". Each of these songs tells the same story from the point of view of one of the three people involved. The three together is commonly known as the 'Hansen's Trailer Park Suite'.

Recorded over the winter of 2008, this is a collection of songs linked by the common themes of love, heartache, murder and manic depression. Definitely not easy listening, 'Pull Down The Moon' is the sound of a band with experience of the subjects they write about. The songs themselves are a roadmap where the destination is not as important as the journey.

Songs of heartbreak, loss and regret - this is 'Pull Down The Moon' by The Big Nowhere.
