What's this all about?
At Christmas we thought to do something different from normal NMA shows. As with other recent projects, we took ideas we’d touched on before – in this case doing two sets with a large amount of material and adding guest musicians – and pushed them further. Our impression was that it worked really well for two reasons – one, because it was interesting to see how well the material selected from all different eras of the band’s history sat together - and two, because it didn’t feel like the band with add-ons but just one very big band.

Why are you putting out the CD/DVD package?
We had a huge response from everyone – a lot of people saying that these were the best or among the best NMA shows ever. And we did go to the trouble of recording them so it makes sense to make them available as a momento for people who came to the shows. There are also many people who follow the band but were not able to come because they live in other countries or continents, or that they were just not able to make it on the nights in question, but they have heard that it was really something and want to witness it. So here it is – intended as a short life limited edition package.

What’s in the box?
3 audio CDs – All the songs from the main two sets in the order that we played them plus some of the encores – 31 songs in all – more than two and a half hours of music. We thought it right to keep the order of the set lists the same. We have taken ‘the best’ versions of each song from different gigs (all five – London, Nottingham, Paris, Koln and Amsterdam are represented) so you can hear the natural ambience of the rooms and sizes of audience change but it actually seems to enhance listening by changing the sonics every now and then. When it comes to the DVD, there was no professional multi-camera shoot done but there were a couple of static cameras plus footage sent to us by other people who filmed the shows. From this, Dean has spent several days editing together a 90 minute bonus DVD – which gives some idea of the visuals for people that couldn’t come.

What about the packaging and vinyl?
It comes as a four disc digi-pack with some wonderful photographs from the shows. That’s it. Sadly, to put it on high quality vinyl would mean 4 discs and so is financially unrealistic.

Why only through the NMA Shop?
In recent years we have put out rather a lot of live and compilation type releases through mainstream distribution. Reviews of live albums often say that really “this is just for fans of the band”. In this case, they’re right.

How was the experience of mixing the shows? What was the downside and upside?
The only downside was that it took a long time because there is so much material. We have tried to learn some lessons from recent mixing with Joe Barresi so we redid it all a couple of times – and as we were committed to using a lot of the natural ambience of the rooms and the crowds to make it ‘real’, we were restricted on what could be controlled. The upside was to discover that the shows really were good, perhaps better than we remembered; our guests played some really interesting parts and contributed a lot musically. We had so little rehearsal time when we could gather everyone together to prepare that it wasn’t actually clear to us how it would work until we were actually doing it. It was also great to hear just how powerful a 9 piece band and sometimes a wall of drummers can sound.

What’s next?
We have some shows coming up, some festivals in the Summer, have already announced some shows for next Christmas that we plan to make special in a different way. We’ve also started writing and demo-ing for another studio album with the first actual studio sessions scheduled for the end of March.

Any shape or theme to the new material yet?
Patience!

Angry Planet And Sunrise

Here's a visual for Angry Planet:




And here's a visual for 'Sunrise' - not so much a band video as a simple meditation. We found Mike Fairman's beautiful footage on Youtube and as our song was also already up there, we just thought they belonged together. Enjoy.

Qasr El Nil Bridge

“Qasr El Nil Bridge was written after I was in Cairo in late Spring 2011. While of course so much has changed in Egypt and the Middle East since then, the song still feels true and relevant because it’s about the people involved rather than the politics of the moment. Above all we’re all proud of the way we made it work musically. Many thanks to Kevin for this visual interpretation.” Justin Sullivan






Spirit Of Football Video

Many people questioned why we wrote and recorded "The Beautiful Game" for the Spirit Of Football organisation earlier this year - mistakenly believing that it was some kind of promotion for the World Cup. We very much hope this wonderful short film of the ball's journey from London to Brazil will show why we gave them our support and the song. Enjoy!






NMA Magazine

To accompany the album, tour and film of Dog And Wolf, we decided to put out our own New Model Army magazine. This special full colour 104 page publication was designed by Brian Munson (who created the beautiful book in the 30th Anniversary box-set) in conjunction with Vive La Rock magazine. It contains exclusive features on the making of the album with the band and Joe Barresi, Joolz on 30 years of NMA artwork, remembering Rob Heaton by his brother Mike, band members past and present, Ricky Warwick on his year in New Model Army, Campino from Die Toten Hosen on his love of NMA and much more.

The magazine will also be available on the road as a kind of tour programme and also from our Shop HERE
