Self-proclaimed balladeer Peter Bibby is set to release his first official single ‘Hates My Boozin’. Lifted from his forthcoming debut album Butcher/Hairstylist/Beautician, ‘Hates My Boozin’ will be released Monday October 13th. Bibby has also just been announced to join the likes of Banks, Caribou, Jungle, Lykke Li and Future Island for St. Jerome's Laneway Festival 2015.
Some words from Peter Bibby on the single:
"One time I was really drunk, for the thousandth time, and my girlfriend got really upset at me and told me I need to stop drinking or else she would leave me. I haven’t seen her in a few years. Then another time, the same thing happened with a different girl. She’s gone too. Then this other time, I was getting well pissed and rowdy at my house with some mates and my housemate came in and told us to “sht the f*#k up c@#ts!” so we did our best. The next morning she said she needed a word with me in private and told me she was worried about my alcohol intake and I took it all on board and at the time, I thought she may be on to something. Over the course of that day I started thinking things like “fuck t^@t!” and “who the devil does she think she is?” and then I started thinking about all the other women in my life who have given me a hard time for being a trashy booze hound so I sat down at the type writer and shat out this song. I had already been strumming the chords as I drove across the Nullabor with a couple of good mates a few days earlier and it all slotted in nicely. It’s a representation of my horrible stubbornness. It’s my ‘Bitch, don’t kill my vibe'. Its my woozy ballad of self assurance."
Butcher/Hairstylist/Beautician will be released in 2 formats: as a digital download and CD on Friday November 14th. The Album will also be released on vinyl - stay tuned for further details.
