To mark ten years since the release of their first album, "The Bright Carvings", folk-pop five piece Monkey Swallows the Universe will be 'reborn from an egg on a mountaintop' in an intimate one-night-only Easter Sunday resurrection gig.
Nat Johnson, Kevin Gori, Cate Tully, Andy George and Rob Dean will reprise the roles that saw them 'put the cor back into recorder' in the mid-00s. "The Bright Carvings" was released on now defunct local record label Thee SPC in February 2006 and their follow up album, "The Casket Letters", was released on Loose Records in 2007.
In their day MSTU enjoyed Radio 4 and 6 Music sessions, festival performances including Green Man, End of the Road and Latitude, and toured with Richard Hawley, Camera Obscura and the Long Blondes. They announced an ‘indefinite hiatus’ in 2008, playing their final shows in Scotland.
The Greystones show will see the five piece play all the songs from their first album. They will also be releasing a digital single featuring new versions of "Sheffield Shanty" and "The Secret Word is Groucho" in February.
Press for the Bright Carvings in 2006:
“Delicately sculpted indie-pop tunes whose brightness is granted by a clear, chiming simplicity.” - Drowned in Sound
“They recall the hey!-it's-a-sunny-day heyday of Sarah Records, the sort of folk-tinged, cutely melodic, ba-ba-ba-ba-based acoustic pop that is pure late-night, late-80s John Peel.” - The Guardian
“If they don't get some sort of mass media coverage and fellatio for this album it could be a good reason to set fire to your passport and move to Sweden.” - Stylus Magazine
