Versa Vice is the debut solo record by Joe Gideon. After Joe Gideon & The Shark called it a day in 2013, Gideon called on the assistance of friend, neighbour and drummer Jim Sclavunos (Grinderman/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) to try out an arsenal of songs, and to see if Gideon could even play the guitar again, after a wrist injury put him out of action for the best part of a year. (Jim and Gideon became friends after JG&TS toured with the Bad Seeds on their Dig Lazarus Dig tour back in 2008.) Together they laid down the foundations of ‘Versa Vice’ during a heatwave in West Berkshire, recorded by Rich Matthews, and finished by Gideon at home, after further assistance by friends Ed Harcourt (piano/organ) and Duke Garwood (horns) on a handful of tracks.
PRE-ORDER HERE!! First listens coming soon!

Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the men known as Heavy Trash, never thought that anyone could be watching or listening, let alone recording, when they perpetrated these middle-of-the-night flip-outs, improvisations, instrumentals, and dangerous experiments in unchecked soul exposition and naked desire. Had they known the tape was rolling, we would never have this demented document of darkness and decay. But their demons have come to light, and you are now invited to dance through the dusky shadows of a musical group on the edge. This is pure Heavy Trash. This is Noir!
WARNING: Noir! is not for the weak, the uninitiated, for dabblers, or dilettantes. Seriés Aphōnos has gone to special pains to ensure that this record will never be a hit. You cannot give the people what they want, nor can you give this record back.
Order now from our online store.
