This Sunday Why Why Peaches band member Craigie Dodds will be running a marathon in honour of Jonny Dollar. Jonny was part of the band and wrote and recorded with us in the first year of its incarnation. He passed away in May 2009 from cancer and his presence is sorely missed. He was best known for his work on Massive Attack’s Blue Lines and personally i feel honoured to have worked with such an incredible musician.

It took a bit longed than planned but we hope it is worth the wait.
Why Why Peaches covers 10 tracks in 10 months #YYP10in10
Here is our cover choice for this month. Voted for by our fans, join the mailing list and get a download link for the track.
We recorded this live performance in the studio last week and wanted to share it with you. It’s the first track we ever wrote as Why Why Peaches. The song started out as a looped sample from a cajon box drum, that Craigie Dodds was hitting. Strange how something can come from what you first think is nothing.
Next week we will be back in the studio to record another track chosen by you. Let us know your cover suggestions by the end of the week. Last month it was ‘lovesong’ by the Cure. What will it be this time ?
Why Why Peaches are the first band being profiled by eAR MUsic’s NEXT BIGGEST THING, a brand new monthly showcase of new bands. If you head to www.nextbiggestthing.co.uk and sign up you will receive an email each month giving you a free tune to download by the featured band/artist and automatic free entry to a showcase gig.
Thanks to everyone for their great cover ideas. We decided on Emma Finns suggestion of Lovesong by The Cure & recorded it yesterday. Free entry for Emma & guest to our next London Show at the Lexington, 30th March. We will be doing this again in April so get your ideas flowing, and don’t worry if you live somewhere else in the world we will find another way of thanking you for your thoughts.
To get a copy of Why Why Peaches – Lovesong please sign up to our monthly newsletter before the 28th March. As we will be sending out a download link with every newsletter.
