We’re very sad to hear that Grant Hart has passed away. He was a huge inspiration to us with Hüsker Dü, Nova Mob and as a solo artist, and we were honoured to play with him when visited Glasgow promoting “The Argument” (his astonishing concept album based on Milton’s Paradise Lost). Here’s a video from that night, with Andy joining him for a couple of songs. Rest easy, Grant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ULIcT0RAr0 Written by Kenny Johnson

Ssssssshhhhhhhhh!!!!! We quietly released our new song “This Gut Feeling Inside” digitally. This Gut Feeling Inside is taken from our “still recording” and “still to be titled” next album. But we thought we’d throw this out there to give you a little taster of what we’ve been up to. You can check it out here: https://overhaulmusic.com/discography/this-gut-feeling-inside/ Artwork by Pauline Gallagher.
12 packs of these bad boys arrived today. In case you’re a musician and never heard of S.I.T Strings, S.I.T stands for Stay In Tune. There is a link to S.I.T’s website at the footer. Go check them out!!! There is a long story about how Andy came to use S.I.T Strings. And here it is: Many many years ago back in 1995 I was in Los Angeles, It was a particular sad time for me as I was in L.A for my grandfather’s funeral. To take my mind off the sadness of this trip my Aunt took me to a couple of well known guitar stores in Los Angeles. It was at one of these guitar stores I picked up a Gibson Les Paul …

Here’s a blast from the past…… a ticket from one of the very 1st OVERHAUL shows. This is from 25th Sept 1998. What do I remember of this night……. not a lot actually. I do however vaguely remember being very nervous and extremely excited. This was one of the first ticketed live performance OVERHAUL did and I also vaguely remember that our performance was VERY stiff. We’ve definitely loosened up since then but we still get extremely excited and less nervous hahahaha – Andy Gallagher
Myspace….. Bring back memories? Before Twitter, before Facebook, before Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ etc we all had MySpace. I recently revisited MySpace and was amazed how much it had changed. So, inspired we signed up again with MySpace and here’s the link to our page https://myspace.com/realoverhaul Don’t know if MySpace will make a comeback, but if it does…. You can find us on there – Andy
Yo Ho guys, Just to let you all know we’ve setup a little YouTube Channel and we’ve already uploaded some videos. Head over to https://goo.gl/btgHdv to watch what we have.

Woo Hoo!!!! It’s with tremendous excitement that we can announce that Overhaul will be opening for Grant Hart formally of Husker Du on 23rd Oct ’13. Andy has even been asked to join Grant on stage for a couple of songs. To say Andy is excited…… We’re still trying to scrape him off the ceiling hahahaha.
It’s with tremendous honour and excitement to announce that Andy and Graham have officially agreed to join Gordon Gano and The Ryans.

Andy was asked last year to record some tracks for a split vinyl album with Boy Dirt Car for After Music Recordings in Minneapolis. So he and Graham Brown went to Cava Sound, Glasgow and recorded two songs for the EP and the other two songs were recorded at Andy’s home in Millport. Now for the very cool bit…… Andy asked his friend and bass legend Mike Watt if he would play bass on the opening track “I Should’ve Stayed In Bed Today” and Watt agreed and knocked it out of the park. The Split vinyl is available as a limited run vinyl. Only 300 copies have been pressed.
OVERHAUL – Here and ThereHere and There was officially released today on THANKSGIVING DAY!!!! Here and There……. the title was taken from a conversation between Andy and Victor when they were discussing the fact the songs were written “here” in Millport, Scotland and recorded “there” in Milwaukee, USA. The lineup and recording location for this OVERHAUL album has definitely strayed a bit from the classic lineup but Andy Gallagher teamed up with Violent Femmes drummer Victor DeLorenzo and Mike Hoffmann (EIEIO/Semi Twang) and recorded the 2nd OVERHAUL album in Milwaukee, Wisconsin which certainly brought a fresh/new feel and dimension to OVERHAUL. We even started our own little record label, Mood Vertigo Recordings, to release “Here and There” and our single “Paranoid.” Here and There is …
