Of Cabbages and Kings and Charley

Old Public Information films and my songs. Well, my remixes actually. Here’s a video I made for my remix of Khartomb’s Cabbage & Kings, using and edit from “Charley’s March of Time”, a British Public Information film from 1948 by Halas and Batchelor.

 

Colour Coded by Soup

Here’s the first track of the album I mentioned in a recent post. It’s called Colour Coded, from the album called “Album” by Soup. Soup are, amongst others, Andy Whitaker and Oz Cooper, from Manchester in the UK.

There’s also a review of the album in SIC Magazine here…..

Album by Soup

Some friends of mine, Andy Whitaker and Oz Cooper, have a new album out now. Released in November 2014, the album is intriguingly called “ALBUM” and the band is called “SOUP”. Influences and sounds ranging from psychedelic to indie, pop, and heartfelt emotion are all on the album. From the first track, “Colour Coded”, with it’s eastern intro, to just an acoustic guitar, synths, the album has it all. It’s well worth a listen. The album cover is intriguing too. A few of us were invited to a photoshoot for the cover pic, and were asked to bring along out favourite album covers. So, while you listen to “Album”, you can play a “guess the cover” game…..!!!

Album by Soup is out now on all good download sites, including iTunes: http://bit.ly/1tASo36

I’m proud to be involved in a compilation album called “Salford Streets” which aims to draw attention to the plight of the homeless, and raise valuable funds for the Emmaus facility in Salford, UK. The album features new music from 35 bands and musicians from Salford and surrounding areas of Manchester, Bolton, and further afield, and included my track “Half Past One“.  It only cost £3.00 for the whole album, so please support this great cause by downloading it here:
