Distance From Zero – Found Again

A New Year just starting and DFZ are already on it with a New Track. Well, almost new… ‘Found Again’ was originally written for the album ‘Endless Sea’ by Red Sided Garter Snakes (ex-Chameleons John Lever featuring Dave Fielding, members of The Sun and The Moon, SupaJamma, SWJ Group, Bauer and Puressence amongst other excellent North west UK musicians).

DFZ recorded an excellent version that appeared on their Pilot Error album reviewed here on Canned Static, November 2020. Through time DFZ have evolved their sound to the point that ‘Found Again’ needed to see the light as a single version. I loved the 2020 album version accompanied with its minimalistic costal video. The single version takes it up a notch with the doubled up vocals adding a dreamlike quality, almost an anthem feel to the mix. I love it even more and the video is the bee’s bollocks.

The single will be available on www.distancefromzero.bandcamp.com from January 6th 2023.

Can’t wait? Here’s the Bandcamp page for the 2020 version – ‘Pilot Error’ Album.


Distance From Zero – Another Day Another Way

DFZ (busy as ever) drop another video of their new stand alone single ‘Another Day Another Way’. With a subtle shift in a pop direction and a lovely OMD(ish) synth, the DFZ sound still retains. I’m loving the video too.

Distance From Zero – Shame On You

DFZ hit it out again with arguably one of their best release to date.

‘Shame On You’ goes for the political jugular of our corrupt shits holding the power. Originally recorded back in 2010 the track remained so relivant it was given its proper studio works in 2018 eventually seeing light of day in 2020 as part of the ‘Pilot Error’ album.

They lyrics are so relivant to this (very) day that it’s now got a video update… perfect timing.

The message is strong with a cracking chorus and a backbone bass line to die for. Whats not to love.

Distance From Zero – ‘Say Something’

Back with an echo from their epic ‘new video per month’ 2021 campaign. DFZ are rolling out and ranting on again about the disinformation we are swamped with each and every day. Yes folks its true! Get yer heads out’ the sand and listen in…. Great tune to boot.

Distance From Zero – Say Something (What the Papers Say October 2021)

Another month rolls on and another rant from Distance From Zero.

Yes it’s What the papers say time with the excellent ‘Say Something’, a surprisingly synth layers gem and somewhat more commercial sounding from previous tracks. Lovely bonus instrumental included.

Spacemen 3 – Forged Prescriptions (2004)

This is a band I picked up on well late to the party and ‘Forged Prescriptions’ is a revamp of their 2nd album release ‘The Perfect Prescription’ (1987). Spacemen 3 were an indie space rock band who floated around in the late 80’s. Achieving marginal success for a number of years they disintegrated in 1990 just when things were on the up (same old story).

Being a re-issue with built in extras to help promote it is packed with previously lost demos and remixed originals. As a result it does sound odd and out of sorts as do most releases of the like. Also a distinct lack of drums sprinkles more mystique into the mix. Its not a brilliant landmark by any means, rather serves as a relic to a bygone era in the indie evolution. It’s a pick up where you left off type of thing and something to have on in an after party smoker serves its purpose perfectly.

Distance From Zero – ‘Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say’

What The Papers Say May 2021

Another monthly instalment for DFZ – What the papers say (the series) continues with yet another belter of a track, got to be my favourite so far and we’re barely half way through 2021. Even better, I have a copy of What The Papers Say (Episode 1), first 4 of the year due for release as an EP shortly. I’m on it so…

Distance From Zero – Sorry is No Apology (What the Papers Say January 2021)

An impromptu mini review here, could not resist….

DFZ are at it again venting frustration this time on the YouTube platform in the form of ‘Sorry is No Apology’. A side swipe at the insincerities emanating from our so called glorious Bozzer.

All sounds very much a DFZ track, all be it, a quick demo, minus the refinements but this adds to the overall feel. Great chorus and as always they have a valid point.

Interestingly, the band promise to release a series of YouTube videos to collate newspaper front pages for every day of this year. Stay tuned…
