Paul Hawkins – The Misdiagnosis of Paul Hawkins

PaulHawkins01Artist: Paul Hawkins
Title: The Misdiagnosis of Paul Hawkins
Cat: FFP-R02
Run time: 54:18

A treat for anybody who has been beguiled by Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences’ debut record or stunned by the band’s rapidly becoming legendary live shows in and around London, this largely bedroom recorded CDR album by Paul pre-dates We are Not Other People by two years, but retains the themes of love and loss whilst other tracks convey the energy of the live show remarkably well.

“In a pop world desperately short of eccentrics right now, Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences are simply a revelation.” God is in the TV

Other releases by Paul Hawkins

Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – We are Not Other People
Paul’s first ‘proper’ album with his band Thee Awkward Silences, universally acclaimed by critics across the alternative press (and the Peterborough Telegraph), it is a typical debut: brash, crass, full of pitfalls, you can forgive its lack of structure because of the sheer quality of the songs it possesses, and the quality of some that are missing, which you should buy as well!
CD £8 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Lil’ Lost Lou and Paul Hawkins: Split Release: Bad Bad Girl/The Evil Thoughts
Debut Single from two of London’s most exciting acts, this is a split 7″ with cover art by Lou herself and includes a postcard and CDR of the tracks for those of you without record players…
7″ vinyl & CD £3 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – The Bigger Bone CDS
The second single and the first to feature the full band and a multi colour sound. Great artwork from bassist Alex’s girlfriend Rose Forshall. This is a limited edition CD in a digipack. Tracks: The Bigger Bone, The Cavalry Ain’t Coming, Hate Is All Around.
CD £2 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – I Believe In Karma
It’s actually impossible to choose a favourite non-album single of Paul’s, but the pure energy in the incessant ‘I Believe in Karma’ certainly gives it an edge. Non-stop and utterly brilliant, it’s backed with ‘My Darling Frankenstein’.
CD £2 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – Don’t Blind Me With Science
The single re-recorded version of the last track on The Misdiagnosis of Paul Hawkins album. Backed with a band and studio recorded, this version blows the demo out of the water. It is backed with a different version of album track ‘Gentleman on Crutches’.
CD £2 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – You Can’t Make Somebody Love You
A personal favourite of the Hawkins non-album singles collection. ‘You Can’t Make Somebody Love You’ is a fabulous, wrenching live favourite, but backed with the fantastic electro bounce of ‘The Substitute’ this is really a must-have CDS (and I never thought I’d ever say that!)
CD £2 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences – The Battle is Over
Get Hawkins remixed here, the album track (featuring Diana De Cabarrus of Candythief) is backed with remixes of ‘Music is my Enemy’ (by the excellent Tim Ten Yen) and ‘The Evil Thought’ (taken on by Will Horsebox).
CD £2 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences T-Shirt
T-Shirt proclaiming that you’re not in fact London’s greatest underground dark and twisted pop artist. Described as ‘stylish’ by the label, I wouldn’t suggest I’m fashionable but I do have one… Sizes small, medium, large.
Tee £8 – Buy from Jezus Factory Records
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences T-Shirt
More tradition band tee for the band. Available in a range of colours or which they only have blue and white left. Sizes small, medium, large.
