Brockley and The Alps

The Alps are billed as a Greenwich band but like all good Greenwich natives, The Alps' lead guitar and vocalist Sam has defected to Brockley.

Their new single - Obstacle Race - is out on February 16th and you can watch it at their MySpace page here or visit their blog here for more about the band.

Thanks and good luck to Sam.

I heard that a member of Friendly Fires lives in Brockley too... 'Skeleton Boy' out soon.

Some budding new music stars moved into the top flat in our building and started playing the drums at all hours. Keen as I am to nurture Brockley's art and music credentials, I draw the line at band practice at 3am... God I must be getting old...

Thanks for putting the story up Nick! Dont worry Brockley folk, we practice in a studio in North London.

Hope all you guys like the vid/single, we think its our best one yet.

Cheers,

Sam

If the new development (the scaffolding yard) goes ahead - soon you will be able to practice in a brand new workspace in Brockley!

How close are you, Sam, to the Telegraph Hill borders? Do you want to get involved in any Festival events? Currently in the planning stage and scheduled for 13 to 22 March.
In essence people donate their talents - but its good fun and a great atmosphere.

Back off Tamsin! We want to see them at the Brockley Max. :P

Tamsin said...

OK, OK - but let them practise on the outcasts around the Hill.

How can one get involved in the Hill? (And what can one realistically do for it?)

Sam Alps said...

Hey Tamsin, we'd love to get involved with Telegraph Hill fest and Brockley Max if we can, I'm on Tyrwhitt Road hopefully close enough?

Also, in more Brockley themed Alps news... check out the video for 'Not So Laughable Now' which features local chip shop 'Tony's Plaice' on Malpas Road. Tony even has a cameo appearance himself... And it was directed by Brockley based director Kostas Koutsoliotas.

I'm not involved on the music side but check out the Festival link on www.thehill.org.uk or e-mail sarascott [at) btinternet [dot) com and she will pass it on to the relevant people. We sometimes have more acts than there is time for but some extra events are happening this year and in principle all within reach who don't want paying are welcome.

(In that regard - Michael the actor who posted a while ago, where are you? ;o) )

It really is about time we had rock stars joining in the local debate - it was only a matter of time I guess ;)

Sam Alps said...

Thanks Tamsin, I'll drop her a line. We don't need paying for local gigs, it'll be fun!

Cheers,

Sam

The lead guitarist from
The Metros was at Brockley Station yesterday afternoon, helping some girl use the automated ticket machine.

Having a members of good bands hanging out in the local area is a just another reason, that I love Brockley!
