So, you get a deal, you get some income, you get told you're gonna make an album, then the rug gets pulled from underneath you...What do you do? If you're Oswald, you get on with it, you go in your kitchen, make a cuppa, and record the album there! It's no mean feat to record an album of such anthemic weight from your garage, but 'How Much Rug, How Much Carpet?' is one such album. So much so in fact, that Pledge Music are about to launch said album online. From the heart of a wee Scottish town called Cumbernauld on the outskirts of Glasgow hails what surely must be one of the UK's most disenfranchised, socially outspoken and generally miffed bands. Oswald are all about society, life and people. They are a true band of the people. Lead by singer, songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player Tom McCreery who writes unashamedly write about his life, his views and society's ills Oswald are gearing up to release and tour 'How Much Rug, How Much Carpet' through Pledge Music. Pledge are an ideal partner for charity consciousness of Oswald. When the album is released a percentage of all funds goes to the band's charity of choice 'The Whizzy Wheels Fund' whose aim is to raise money for a 3 year old girl suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy. 'How Much Rug, How Much Carpet' is a life-affirming album encapsulating the band's reflection on aspects of urban culture - the good, the bad and the surreal accompanied by infectious hooks that are impossible to get out of your head. Oswald's songs are from the heart, all about the hopes, dreams and dogged determination of people trying to get to where they deserve to be. With a soul that is ablaze by the roots of rock and roll, Tom McCreey's powerful voice propels their songs with a curious mix of innocence and fire and sings with so much anguish and passion that you can feel the aching sadness at work here, a mad urgency to escape, to takeoff, to transform things. Whilst at the same time, he fulfils your guitar hero fantasies and should not be fed after dark. As for Ant and Tom they are the very back bone of this beast, like some punk-ass engine drivers pushing performance to the limits. So get ready to be part of Oswald as they prepare themselves to unleash the musical equivalent of a full-on beach assault incorporating heavy artillery, landing craft and an assortment of nuclear field weapons and charge into the thick of the social battle armed with powerhouse anthems and adrenaline, sweat shot fuelled performances.
