The brief story is this… One year ago, I found myself back home in Liverpool, out of work due to Covid but with time on my hands. I decided to write and record an album. 12 months later having collaborated with a fellow like-minded musician, John Goodfellow, from Manchester and we have written, recorded and released 13 original songs and a cover version. There are more in the pipeline and the next step is to take it live this summer once venues are open again. Our influences have come from the late 60s, 70s rock, New Wave and 80s Post Punk. All that is good from that period will surface in our music at some point. Sometimes you might hear Bowie, The Clash and Burt Bacharach all in the same track, in another, The Byrds and Elvis Costello.
