Just pre-ordered my special edition copy from HMV. Includes 13 postcards (whatever that means)

Thea Gilmore’s 10th album, Murphy’s Heart will be released on August 30th. We are really excited and honoured to be releasing this incredible album.

Murphy’s Heart is smart and honest and confident enough to concentrate on life’s most important themes: love and sex. She considers both the damage that love does, the violence that it can invoke, the guilt that comes with parental love, but also the maddening truth that one means precisely nothing without the other. Gilmore is wise enough to write a song like God’s Got Nothing On You which casually nails an habitual self-regarder (already speculation has it that one Tony Blair was the inspiration) who abandons “all those friends you outgrew with Bombay gin and a rose tattoo…”, while being uncynical and open enough to write something as beautiful as Due South where a young man heads off, “feet on the dash of a rented car” only to soon find himself alone and lost, “looking for hope in stiletto heels…”

Listen to 2 songs from Murphy's Hearthere.

I guess they're the same 2 mp3s available at her website.

Well, it wasn't quite the full band last night but Thea never lets you down.

Someone near me managed to shoot this excellent footage of Ms Gilmore entertaining us with one of her extensive range of Guns n Roses covers :lol:

I don't know what connection I could have with this song but it's haunted me since the first night I heard it performed.

I've posted another version of it before but just had to share this stunning capture from that same Thea Gilmore gig that I attended a few weeks back.
