We have a couple fans here on YCD of Right Away, Great Captain, otherwise known as Any Hull (from Manchester Orchestra). If you missed my original post on RAGC a while back, I urge you to go read it and listen to the mp3s I posted. His last album “The Bitter End” is definately of my favorite folk albums I have gotten my paws on in some time. I couldn’t be more excited that the second installment is coming soon.
On RAGC’s myspace blog:
I’ll start off with saying thank you. i released this first RAGC record about a week after MO’s record and did not expect anybody to listen. at that time there were around 10 fans of manchester and i didn’t feel like it was kosher to try and overwhelm them with another record filled with similar songs so soon. i am getting married in a few months and despite the amazing fans our band has made none of us are “rich men” in the least. seems off topic, but i have a reason. through sales on itunes over the last few months you amazing few that bought the record have really given me an aid in paying for that tradition that is a honeymoon. and i could not be more grateful to anyone who bought it, burned it, stole it, or bought a ticket to see RAGC play at sometime. you have given me an awesome gift so thank you. whatever whatever you want to know what this thing is about. so.
this summer Right Away Great Captain is going to be releasing the second installment in my overly dramatic “sailor story” and it is titled “The Eventually Home”. i am super excited about the songs that have been written and the story line that takes place. i hate saying what i think about things that i wrote but for now i would say three words to describe it compared to the last are darker, heavier, funnier. the story does continue where we left off (where was that again?) and ends how it ends, you will have to be the judge of that.
Check out his myspace for a preview of “Down To Your Soul” from the upcoming album.
