Brigadier gets covered and newe song on Italian EP!

Hope you are enjoying the summer days at the moment.... Thanks for all the lovely feedback about the new material, the new album 'The Secret of no Success' will be out in the Autumn and yes it will be on CD to those who asked! Other interesting things that have been happening is that a great cover of my song 'The Melancholy Days' has been recorded by the ultra-talented Jeff Boller AKA 'The Simple Carnival', if you're not familiar with his work then check it out here; http://www.simplecarnival.com/ Where you can also listen to and download his rendition of 'The Melancholy Days'. There is also a link to Jeffs myspace and Facebook too! Other exciting news is that a new track of mine 'Church of Sound' is on a 'Neo Italo' EP put out by the Italian label Kingem records. The EP is a tribute to early 1980s European electro dance pop and indeed that is what I tried to go for...The whole EP is full of real great hi-energy pop and you can listen to 'Church of Sound' and a few others here; http://www.myspace.com/kingemrecords and download it from itunes here; http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/u-n-disco/id387737491 Anyway, thanks again for being a fan!

Update, Squeeze, itunes etc..

I'm pleased to announce that I've got a track coming out on a Squeeze tribute album from Burning Sky Records, covering 'There's no tomorrow' - not sure when it will be out but I will reveal as soon as I know more...! Thanks to those who have bought the new EP 'The Edge of Spring', unfortuneately due to administrative error on my part it has been delayed going onto itunes as I put the release date to be 10/2 meaning 10th February (in the UK) but in the US of course who do my processing that means 2nd October!! Suffice to say i've now sorted it out and it is now on itunes to purchase if you wish (with a release date of October!), it is also downloadable from CD Baby and Amazon - links on the Buy/Discography page. With regard to the downloading only 'experiment' for Edge of Spring, it was flawed as more people wanted CDs than downloads! - so with that in mind I have had some more pressed up and they are available to buy as normal in the Buy/Discography page on this site. Work is underway on the new Brigadier album which hopefully be out in the Autumn - will post up new tracks soon!!

New EP out now!

My new download EP 'The Edge of Spring' is now out, samples and lyrics on the 'Music/Videos/Lyrics' page, and a link to buy on the 'Buy/Discography' page!
