Thee Moths have split… ok, he/they are to in future make music under the name Alex Charles, the real identity of the man behind the band.
He leaves us with several final releases however: the ‘Tethered Homes Mix’ CDr,with 4 remixes by other people – available from www.theemoths.co.uk.
Also, there’s ‘As Humble Hewn Totem’ – a free download of the final Thee Moths album – at theemoths.bandcamp.com
After hundreds of shows (and indeed over 100 releases) the final gig under the name will be at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery’s Round Gallery at 12.30pm on the 10th of September as part of Artsfest 2011.
Confusingly, his first solo show is the day before, on the 9th of September, at a mystery location in Birmingham.
Dundee net label Verses is to release the ‘debut’ EP from Alex Charles, however – ‘Test Loops’ is out now at versesmusic.bandcamp.com
