Leyton reunites with TCP for a one-off reunion gig in Toronto
Saturday, 07 April 2012

Neil Leyton and Edward Pond's band project from the mid-90's, The Conscience Pilate, reunited in Toronto for a one-off gig with the line-up including Galore drummer Tim Timleck as well as sometime Leyton guitarist George Bettencourt. Whilst Leyton, Pond and Timleck had also formed the ranks of Galore (fronted by Barry Walsh) during the "Parader" era, TCP had not played a show since early 1998.

The song line-up included some tracks from the Movie Scene EP (named indie record of the year in 1996 by Canada's Access Magazine), such as Dark Star Passing, Never for You and Money & Alcohol, as well as some songs from the never-quite-finished album "Sunday Refugees", like Antonet and Spoilt Beautiful. Both those collections, from 1996 and 1997 respectively, are widely available on iTunes and other fine digital retailers.

We leave you with some photos from the gig - including one with special host guitarist Mick McKenzie! Poster art by Bill Douglas.

Don’t let them tell you (it can’t be done) 


From Hudson to University
The Annex to the Commons
A life without defeat, with vision and honour

Throughout our history
The sad reality we so often see
Great men die before their time

Now we speak to the young
About the future of this world
The necessary social struggle
In a global economy where the few
Keep the wealth from the many

It won’t be easy to change the world
But don’t let them tell you -
Don’t let them tell you
Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done.

The challenge for the party
Will be how to administer
The legacy of a man who
Could have been prime minister

In a global vacuum of true leaders
Jack smiled and shone like a beacon
And who knew politics could still
Be a noble profession?

“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear.
Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic.
And we’ll change the world.”


Gone but never forgotten
That is what defines being human
For love and beauty and delight
There is no death nor change...

So we are now speaking to the young
We are now talking about the future of the world
So don’t let them tell you -
Don’t let them tell you
Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done.

- A tribute to Jack Layton, by Neil Leyton.

 
Elite Nylon released in November!
Sunday, 19 September 2010

Elite Nylon, the long-awaited wide-release sequel to The Betrayal of the Self, is Neil Leyton's fourth studio album. It can now be pre-ordered exclusively via mail-order from the FW Music Store. However, it will be followed by the digital version (available via all major digital retailers, distributed by Finetunes.de) in November 2010.

Elite Nylon is not really an album, but rather three-EPs in one from what were to be three separate recording sessions with three separate concepts. The entire opus is explained on the new Elite Nylon mini-site.

Leyton supporters who invested in the TION project (The Insanity of Normality), and who have been receiving their demos and work-in-progress mixes along the course of the last few years' work will already be familiar with much of the material - they will also be the first to receive the first numbered copies of the physical limited edition release, coming in October. Regular orders will only ship Nov. 1st.
