Four Day Hombre
Four Day Hombre
Both sold out and had to be re-pressed due to demand. Their last material was entirely self recorded and mixed. Since September 2002, the results have been played on XFM and Radio1 and resulted in nearly 5000 internet downloads. Within two years of forming they had supported, or been supported by acts such as JJ72, The Coral, The Frames, Oceansize, The Supernaturals, Chris Helme, Halo, Budapest, Fi-Lo Radio, The Freestylers, Snow Patrol, Fonda 500, X is greater than Y, The Music, Gay Dad, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Seafood, Lorna, The Broken Family Band, The Hiss, Miss Black America, The Sights, Mew, Martin Grech and more... Having previously been played by Radio 1 and XFM at the end of 2002, Four Day Hombre sent a copy of their self recorded demo to Steve Lamacq hoping for another play on the Evening Session. Somehow the demo made it's way from the Evening Session to the OneMusic unsigned music team and ended up getting ten daytime playlist plays (equivalent to 2 weeks of being on the C-playlist) in January 2003, as well as more XFM and Evening Session airings.
The response to these plays from both DJs and real people has been fantastic. Experiments in Living was released in 2005. The title of this album is inspired by the book "Among the Bohemians: Experiments in Living 1900-1939", by Virginia Nicholson. Simon Wainwright – Vocals and guitar Rich Huxley – Guitar and vocals Ed Waring – Keyboards Jason Miller – Bass Ash – Drums The majority of Four Day Hombre now perform under the new name 'Hope and Social'.
