Liz Green delivers new single ‘Bad Medicine’ and a Full UK Tour


Manchester’s Liz Green received a veritable shedload of praise for her  debut album O, Devotion! upon its release in November  2011. To  celebrate, next Monday sees the release of new single ‘Bad Medicine’  with a gem of an exclusive B-side ‘Rybka’.  Liz is also  packing her mouth trumpet and heading out on a full UK tour from 22nd of March, stopping at London’s Bush Hall on the 3rd of April.

    As for ‘Bad Medicine’, Liz explains its genesis with her usual   illuminating heartfelt humour. “This is probably my favourite song.   It’s a different bag of badgers altogether from the first version of    it. Me and Peri spent a long time trying to nail that trumpet solo.    I eventually ended up playing it to him on a kazoo! Because I can’t   afford to take a full band everywhere I go, I’ve built up a bit of a   reputation for being a great mouth trumpet player”.

    “There is a simple story. The sad story of a man who is neglected by his fellow men. Punished by them for his difference. When I mention   him walking like a Bible prophet I think of a man I used to see  walking round Manchester, striding, head high, beatific smile. I   haven’t seen him around for a while. I hope he’s still walking that way. The opening lines are how I felt when I first heard Son House.   I think I’d not heard the rawness of emotion come through a recording so easily as it did with his recordings. That’s the aim  isn’t it. To capture a little bit of soul.”
