Last stages of finishing Liberation LP

We have finally come to the last stages of completing our album, Liberation. The 11-track LP has been recorded with the amazingly patient and talented Chris D'Adda at Vale Studios in Worcestershire over the last couple of years. We have put the finishing touches to a few tracks and the album will be mastered this week by Tim Debney at Fluid Mastering and then sent off to the printers for mass production. As you can imagine, we are very excited about the prospect of having a document of our musical adventures over the last few years. We've had some amazing experiences and look forward to many more to come! We'll be releasing the album properly in the New Year but will be making advance copies available to anyone who wants one before then. Stay tuned! And we have a lot more surprises to come. Peace.

Janice Long "really, really enjoyed" our set

We were lucky enough to have the wonderful Radio 2 DJ Janice Long along to our show at The Elgin in Notting Hill this week. As you know, Janice is one of the true gems in radio - championing great new bands and interesting acts that you haven't heard of yet. She is also a lovely lady! The world really needs more people like her. She has supported loads of previously unknown, but amazing, artists including an old mutual acquaintance of ours - the immensely talented singer-songwriter Vijay Kishore. It was great to talk with her at the Elgin about Vijay's incredible voice and presence before we took to the stage. We also got to enjoy songs from Tom Moriarty and Robinson - two other acts to keep an eye out for. Later that night, Janice gave us a shout out on her Radio 2 show, saying she "really, really enjoyed" our set. Hopefully, we might see her at another gig soon. Thanks Janice!
