'Hanging Around'

2020 opened with so much promise.

Our very first Clash event of the year hit East London's Curtain in January, featuring a stellar line up.

Tycho Jones performed that night, a songwriter whose dexterous blend of influences moves from punk and indie through to grime.

Reflecting the diversity of the neighbourhood he grew up in, Tycho's work is straight-talking yet sharply poetic.

Using lockdown as a time to reflect, he's also been recording, laying down some fresh ideas. Tycho Jones is now ready to share something new, a neat, ragged, and raw cover of 'Hanging Around' by The Stranglers.

A timely salute given the recent passing of Stranglers founder Dave Greenfield, Tycho seems to tap into the song's bittersweet heart.

Biting of vocal and urgent of delivery, it's a taut, visceral performance. He comments:

“'Hanging Around' is a tune, and this is my homage to a band I grew up being really inspired by...”

Tune in now.
