Since the demise of the Amazing Snakeheads in early 2015 Dale Barclay has been gradually working towards new project, And Yet It Moves. Emerging out of relatively unlikely conditions and a couple of rather fortunate timings involving Barclay and his fellow band-members, And Yet It Moves was born.
Having has seen a lot of the darker inside of music industry and coming out bruised from it, Barclay has put Snakeheads firmly in the past ready for a fresh beginning.
Describing the direction of the new band is something Barclay finds difficult to express, but one thing is clear: that his music has come on a long way from the Snakeheads’ straight up rock’n’roll. A sampler in the form of intense 12-minute cacophony of post punk tinged brilliance ‘No Way Back To Lunch’ has already emerged online and can be listened to below.
A full UK tour is booked under Barclay’s own name for late July, beginning in Cardiff on the 20th and finishing back in Glasgow 10 days later, and although the tour is under his own name this will be the first chance for a UK crowd to see the new band in action before they’re unleashed under And Yet It Moves title.
The tour is an exciting prospect and anyone who has witnessed Barclay live, whether that be in the Snakeheads or even as part of St. Jude’s band, will testify to that. Whether we’re going to get the high-octane, taps aff punk energy Barclay embodied in his Snakeheads days, or something completely different not even Barclay knows.
