For the Love of Drew


Helsinki news in the NME.

Helsinki, one of the musical side-projects of Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell, are planning to release a full-length album before the end of 2009.

The band, which features a rotating group of musicians including The Strokes' Albert Hammond, Jr., Fionn Regan and Kid Harpoon among others, are planning a 12-track album – with ten of the songs already recorded.

McConnell told NME.COM, "Helsinki is an entity that came into being unwittingly, a cloud of friends who at many points over the last two years found ourselves gigging and recording a handful of my songs for disparate reasons, ranging from charity endeavours to just finding ourselves in the same city with a few days to kill with itchy fingers.

"We've now cut 10 studio tracks and plan to record two more and release a Helsinki record before the end of the year."

I'm operating under the theory that he's a vampire. A hot, nice, Irish vampire, like Mitchell on Being Human. Or Angel, if he played music instead of fighting crime. Although Drew might do that as well. I wouldn't be surprised.
