Pat Whelan is a London-based Yorkshireman who, a couple of Christmases ago, released an EP, Stand Up Pat Whelan EP, which was well received. Rough Trade said:

Debut EP from this mysterious Yorkshireman. Released through the fledgling Hard Graft label on Christmas eve 2006, this sets the bar very high for anything to follow. Strong lyrics, softly sung on four gorgeous, slow-burning songs thankfully shed a little light on an artist who would seemingly prefer to remain anonymous. 'Not Comfortable' performing live for the moment - it would be a real shame if this release passed unnoticed due to a lack of (self?) promotion. A sublime string arrangement on 'with this bullet' from Paris Motel's Amy May completes a very special package indeed. For fans of Elliott Smith, Cass McCombs and Richard James' (from Gorky's Zygotic Mynci) solo work.

Whelan started gigging in 2007 and has now formed a new band, The Samanas. According to their MySpace, we can expect a new album from them sometime next year. In the meantime, The Samanas are giving away this EP for free if you provide them with your email address.

Will the new LP really be called Waxing Gibbous, Waning Crescent, I wonder? They have a moon widget on their MySpace and there's a tongue-in-cheek reference to planetary alignments in their blog, so maybe it will. Wonder what Gibbous means? ... well I never! A waxing gibbous moon is one that is Right 51-99% visible in the northern hemisphere, and Left 51-99% visible in the southern. So now I know.
