The Gecko will be kicking off the Späti tour of Berlin. Supported by FLUX FM and Wulle Bier, this celebration of Music, beer and Berlin’s Spätkauf Kulture will travel from East to West, From Friedrichshain (Revalerstrasse 8) with The Gecko, to Kreuzberg with Chuckamuck (Lübbener 16) and Mc. Fitti (Platz vor der Skalitzer 38). with an afterparty at Soju-Bar.
There is just one week to go before the exclusive release of “All of a Sudden” on Band Camp. The Gecko are going to release a short behind-the-scenes clip everyday as an intro to the band. These are not things you would normally see in a band presentation, but then The Gecko, with its differing nationalities and personalities doesn’t feel like a normal band.
We start with Samuel talking about his musical influences. It’s in German (but so is he!), just follow this link.
On May 18th The Gecko will be celebrating their single release.
In order to get the ball rolling we have decided to give out some free downloads. The more support The Gecko get, the more they will be able to give out, so if the fans want more, they’ll get it – but we need to feel the love (metaphorically speaking).
To start things off The Gecko are offering a free download of “Lazy Eye” for two weeks 1.4.12 to 14.4.12. Until now this song has only been available on iTunes and Amazon, but now as a present to the fans, it is on Soundcloud for DOWNLOAD
It’s a political song about being predictably ripped off by our leaders and it’s inspired by the counties Espin has lived in. Ireland had Charlie Haughey, Italy had Silvio Berlusconi and Zimbabwe still has Robert Mugabe – by far the worst of the three because of the harm he is continuing to cause his own people. The photo to go with it reflects the sense of being trapped. ( thanks to Marco Floris for the shot)
