about

Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the debut release on the label for vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, rapper, painter, carpenter, raconteur and one of the most talented and unique artists you're likely to encounter - Gideon Conn.

I Just Don't Know You Very Well is the first single to be taken from his forthcoming third album, Hip Hop Original (released November 20th) and features erstwhile Resonator vocalist Kassia Zermon AKA Bunty on a tale of everyday life, love and relationships delivered in Gideon's unique style.

Hailing from Manchester, England, Gideon Conn is something of a one-off. His charming energy, quick wit and unique vocal often stun, and sometimes confuse, but in the end, audiences and listeners inevitably fall in love with this enigmatic, incomparable troubadour's warmth and showmanship.

As much influenced by Joan as Policewoman and Simon & Garfunkle as by Aretha and Stevie or Mos Def and Talib Kweli, Gideon's eclectic take on hip hop music is unparalleled with its soulful, humorous edge and intricate, inventive lyricism.

Having already garnered fans as diverse as Guy Garvey, Tom Robinson and Shaun Keaveney on BBC 6Music, Rob da Bank (Bestival) and John Kennedy (XFM) the next stage in Gideon's story is already eagerly anticipated by radio, press, festival goers and the army of fans he's garnered over the years.

Track Name: I Just Don't Know You Very Well
I just don't know you very well
She could not call him after ten
She was not taken with his friends
He was not making any sense
She could not find the words to say
I just don't know you very well

He sold Intel Pentium processors to growth economies like Indonesia.
He's always at the station at the crack of dawn so he can be the first one on the phone.
He couldn't live without life's infrastructure cause inner-city London seems to suck you into a windowless atmosphere where people get lost and never reappear.

She wore patterned tights and high-heeled boots and she always had a good book on the tube. She was a PhD biology and she like to cook for her friends once a week. She'd just come out of a five-year relationship and she wasn't really up for replacing him, but then you never know who you're going to find and she couldn't get wouldn't get him off of her mind.

They met at a party in Camberwell. She wasn't going to go because she didn't feel great, but her friend persuaded her because she needed a mate. She went to the basement down below where he was dJing songs from a MacBook Pro. And each one of them caught the others eye, then they were talking pretty much the whole night.

But you know it doesn't always have to be that way, it takes time to know if someone is really great. Getting through two people's insecurities, can be difficult to see the wood for the trees. So take another chance to get to know somebody. Although it may seem like you have nothing in common, you never really know until you give it a try, and as long as there's attraction the rest will be fine.
