Punk Isn’t Dead, It’s Minted – Desperate Measures Album Launch News

Desperate Measures launch album with exclusive NFT drop by LuchaCoinNFT.

DESPERATE MEASURES, the New Zealand-born, London-based, punk and rock four piece released their brand-new mini album ‘Rinsed’ on Easy Action records last October to critical acclaim. Containing six tracks of hard-hitting punk with a big helping of rock n’ roll, the album is available on 10” vinyl, CD and download. These recordings feature the new line-up of founder Eugene Butcher, former Glitterati and current Rich Ragany and The Digressions guitarist Gaff, Ricky McGuire  of U.K SUBS and The Men They Couldn’t Hang, along with former K-Line/Done Lying Down drummer James Sherry.

Following the release of ‘The Rich-Tual’, the stomping first single from the ‘Rinsed’ sessions released earlier this year came ‘Flowers At Your Door’. Channeling the dark energy of Iggy Pop, Lords Of The New Church and The Doors‘Flowers At Your Door’ is a brooding rocker that finds Desperate Measures shifting in new directions with their new line-up with excellent results. Never ones to stick to how things should be done, Desperate Measures decided to give their album a second press and create artwork that would set them apart from the status quo. So, it was only natural that lead vocalist, Eugene Butcher teamed up with Steve Kitchen, of Combination 13 design in Canada, for the series of striking cover designs now released as exclusive NFT designs through LuchaCoinNFT. 

Says Butcher “We had a blast designing these NFT’s. They form a great set of brilliant designs and will really help the band go forward this year as we reach out to different spaces. Each album cover has been so much fun to work on and we’re really excited about what we’ve created.  We really hope the fans will enjoy this ground-breaking, super-cool new innovation from Desperate Measures.

Says Stevan Cvjetkovich of LuchaCoin “LuchaCoin is punk at its core, we’ve never been ones to stick to how things should be done. When we teamed up with Desperate Measures, we knew that we were on to something special. We can’t wait for fans to get their hands on them and for the success they’ll bring to the band.”

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
