NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 013

The birth of THE SILVER FACTORY is one of those romantic stories you hear about all the time- the one about the huge music fan who seeks other musicians to share interests and passions with. The band began in the summer of 2008 in the head of Fran Feely, who, after a lot of experience in groups with sounds of the sixties, decided to start a musical project which embraced some of his musical heroes from the eighties, such as THE STONE ROSES, THE FIELD MICE, THE SEA URCHINS and other groups from the C-86 movement, but at the same time, reflected the passion for some other bands from the sixties like THE RONETTES, THE SHANGRI-LA's, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND and THE BYRDS. His prior musical experience is vast but is most notably known for an EP he released for Detour Records with THE PSYCHOTIC REACTION, a group with a large following and which played on the show of John Peel.

The name of the group was inspired by Andy Warhol, since THE SILVER FACTORY was the name Warhol used to refer to the studio where he worked and where he met with people who swarmed all over him. With a large handful of songs already composed, he started the search for bandmates and soon started to play again with his brother, Peter Feely, a specialist in the sounds of the sixties, someone who also played in THE PSYCHOTIC REACTION. Peter loves Dutch garage music, such as THE OUTSIDERS and THE MOTIONS and provides an important perspective for the group. In fact, he was the singer of the band until the beginning of 2011 when Marc Johnston entered the scene and began using the microphone also, leaving Peter as the lead guitarist, a position where he felt more comfortable, while still sharing lead vocals with Marc. We heard Marc recently sing with THE JUNIPERS, a successful band with only one release as of date, “Cut Your Key” with San Remo Records, the label of Marco Thomas, FELT’s guitarist and member of FLY (FLY released an unique and splendid instrumental album put out by Elefant Records which contains collaborations of other members of FELT and PRIMAL SCREAM). The album of THE JUNIPERS was produced by Gavin Monaghon (KINGS OF LEON, THE EDITORS, and RYAN ADAMS) and was spectacularly received by Uncut, The Word and Record Collector, as well as DJs and radio folks from the BBC such as Steve Lamacq, Marc Riley, Bob Harris and Mark Radcliffe. Due to artistic differences, Marc left the group and after a hiatus, decided to unite with THE SILVER FACTORY. Luke Headland (bassist, THE CARNABYS) answers and advertisement and joins the group in April of 2010 and is shortly followed by the entrance of Paul Hobbs (drums). Despite the short musical history together, they quickly transform in essential components of the group.

Finally we can get back to the first reference which will soon form a part of our collection of New Adventures in Pop. A limited edition green vinyl 7” which contains four songs, an ode to the indie pop which gave us the goose bumps, such as groups like THE JUNE BRIDES, CHOO CHOO TRAIN, MOOD SIX and CLOSE LOBSTERS, but at the same time leaving its own melodic marksmanship of the sixties with groups like THE ZOMBIES and THE LEFT BANKE.

“The Sun Shines Over You” reminds us of the beginning of the band of Ian Brown, and we immediately hear the sounds of crystalline arpeggios filled with chorus, full melodies filled with vitality, to complete one of the best songs we have heard all year long. The song, “She Smiles” follows this tune and is one of those songs which reflects the inevitable affinities and the sounds of the sixties such as THE HOLLIES and THE MONKEES, with an intensity and elegance which makes us cry, and occasionally reminds us of a mix between THE RAZORCUTS really cheerful and the beginning of the career of PRIMAL SCREAM. On the other side of the record, “I’m Not Young Enough to Know Everything”, a song very reminiscent of THE SMITHS, is another fantastic hit of the latest Elefant group where it is obvious that Fran Feely wanted to mark the group since its creation with grand melodies and meticulous lyrics. Lyrics including, “All the heartaches don't mean a thing / Cause I'm not young enough to know everything”. Finally, “Tomorrow’s Today” brings the album to an end with the wonderful arpeggios and enormous guitar riffs, some of the most exciting we have heard in the last few months.

To share with the release of this single, we are also presenting the video, “The Sun Shines Over You” with a melancholic aesthetic, with granulated features and an analogical haunting. A precious video which shows the universe that surrounds THE SILVER FACTORY and in which we can see the group accompanied by their friends, with a special appearance of Sean Thomas, member of the mythical group, THE MYSTREATED.

Track Name: The Sun Shines Over You
I’ll be your eyes and ears
Hear things you shouldn’t hear
See all the things you shouldn’t see

I’ll be the wind that blows
All the dark clouds that show
Until the sun shines down on you

All these things that I try to say or do
All these things I do for you

I’ll be your shining light
Shine like the stars at night
Light up your room when you feel sad

I’ll be the books you read
Stories inside your head
The one’s that took you so far away

All these things that I try to say or do
All these things I do for you

All these things that I try to say or do
All these things I do for you

All these things and the sun shines on you
All these things and the sun shines on you
All these things and the sun shines on you
All these things and the sun shines on you
That much is true
Track Name: She Smiles
I want you; I need you back again
Miss you, will you be my friend
From the moment I saw you
I could never change the way I feel for you

I tried to, tried to change your mind
Help you, leave the rest behind
Will I ever make you see
I could never do you wrong, believe in me

When you left that day
You might as well have taken my heart too
Cause I will never be the same
I miss you and I love you too

Will I ever make you see
I could never do you wrong, believe in me

I want you
I miss you
I need you
I love you
Track Name: I'm Not Young Enough To Know Everything
Smoking flowers alone in your room
I’m making plans and you’ll know of them soon
Our time together it don’t mean a thing
Cause I’m not young enough, to know everything
You know everything

You stole my secrets and then you broke my heart
You caused anxiety and that was just the start
All the heartaches don’t mean a thing
Cause I’m not young enough, to know everything
You know everything

You just don’t read the signs
They were there all the time
Reading between the lines I have read you

Cause I’m not young enough, to know everything

As I walk with the sun in my eyes
As I walk with the sun in my eyes
As I walk with the sun in my eyes
As I walk with the sun in my eyes
In my eyes

I walk with the sun in my eyes
I walk with the sun in my eyes
I walk with the sun
Track Name: Tomorrow's Today
These eyes of blue slowly will fade
Where sorrow and tears take there place
The light will fade, deep in your soul

All that’s left now is green, white and gold
When you’re so far away from your home
Fully dressed as you sleep in your bed
These eyes of blue have turned to red

You should see the things you do
Make a change and see it through
All the fingers point at you
And mine’s pointing too

All that’s left now is green, white and gold
When you’re so far away from your home
Fully dressed as you sleep in your bed
These eyes of blue have turned to red

You should see the things you do
Make a change and see it through
All the fingers point at you
And mine’s pointing too

I dream of yesterday
Tomorrows today and
It’s coming down, down, down, down ...
It’s coming down, down, down, down ...
It’s coming down, down, down, down ...
Down on me
