Long Way Down - Soundtrack To The TV Series From Real World Records


50Hz image

From out-and-out snarling, guitar-fuelled assault to haunting, bittersweet piano balladry, 50Hz are difficult to pigeonhole. Formed in 2001 in London, 50Hz released their first single on Shifty Disco Records later that year (championed by Steve Lamacq on Radio 1), and have built a loyal following since then. In 2004, 50Hz (alongside Stereophonics) set the tone for 'Long Way Round,' Ewan and Charley's first around-the-world motorcycle adventure and their song "Panic Attack" appears on the soundtrack for the series. The last year has been spent working on a full-length album with producer Ian Grimble (The Cure, Travis, Manic Street Preachers). This is now available as a limited 1,000 copy run from their website and available on I-Tunes.

The band also just released Panic Attack and Waste Your Time as a 'double-A-side' single in October on their own label, Blue Tide Records. Their remarkable live shows have also been amped up a notch by the addition of new guitarist Dan Cochrane (replacing Andy Gott), and more live dates are being scheduled across the UK for the autumn. They are spending the summer months writing and recording new material.
