Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders And Milburn's Joe Carnall Detail Debut Album As Good Cop Bad Cop

Monday, 04 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Arctic Monkey's Matt Helders and Milburn's Joe Carnall have announced their new collaborative project, Good Cop Bad Cop.

The pair are set to release the self-titled debut album under the moniker on March 29 and support it with spring tour dates. Stops include Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, London, Nottingham, Bristol and a homecoming date for the duo in Sheffield on April 19. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on February 6.

The record's first single, Silk and Leather, was written by Carnall and produced by Helders, with the vocalist sending homemade demos to the drummer in Los Angeles. The track showcases a more electronic sound than the pair are used to. Carnall said:

"Even though we're old mates, it was surreal having someone of that calibre drumming and singing backing vocals on songs I'd written."

Helders added:

"I've become progressively more interested in production over the years but have perhaps never been brave enough to take the first steps; Joe's project seemed like the perfect place to start. It was great for both of us as we could afford to make mistakes without a huge bill to pay at the end. It really was just two old friends spending time together and making music in a glorified garage."

What's Your First Line Going To Be? The Futureheads Discuss Their Long-Awaited Return With 'Powers'
Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.

Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
