Sunstone are pleased to announce that Bronco Bullfrog have signed to the label for a 7" single, due out in 2015.
...The second chapter of Bronco Bullfrog’s story began around three years ago, when Michael Poulson (guitar and vocals), Louis Comfort-Wiggett (bass and vocals) and Andy Morten (drums and vocals) reunited to attempt some recording after a seven year break.
“We split in 2005,” explains Andy. “We’d hit a brick wall after six or seven years together and clearly needed to get our individual and collective mojos back together. In the interim we were still being asked to tour and do festivals in Europe, particularly Spain which we’d adopted as our second home, but we had no interest in doing so. But that interest in the band never seemed to vanish completely so, once we’d all grown up a bit and kissed and made up, we decided to start recording some new songs with the idea of putting out a series of low-key singles on whichever label would have us. ‘Marmalade’ / ‘(She’s Having An) Existential Crisis’ is the third, following 45s on State and Fruits de Mer.”
“We played one solitary gig in Hastings in 2012 and it was terrifying, so we agreed to put the live band on indefinite hiatus and focus on writing and recording. The records we made between 1996 and 2004 were almost always done under duress and almost always no fun. We had no producer/svengali figure to guide us and made a lot of mistakes and bad judgements as a result. I can’t really listen to any of them now. However, cutting pairs of tracks with Mole at Sandgate Sound, and now The Ponswood Hit Factory in St Leonards, is a whole different kettle of pop – every step is a joy. Best of all, we’re best mates again and united in our pursuit of making pure pop records for our own amusement."
