Les and Pauls new album NOW AVAILABLE
Coming soon is a limited CD Collectors edition version of the Album. Watch out for a competition to win a copy.
Paul and Les spent autumn of 2021/22 recording this album which was mainlyproduced at the trench using the BBC Symphony Orchestra , spitfire audio plugins. Originally inspired by the Chernobyl event in the 1980s. This became irrelevant due to the recent events in the Ukraine. A short video at the end of this segment explains the reasons and some details / inspirations behind a couple of the tunes. Paul left in some Russian motifs in a couple of the original concept recordings but removed and abandoned many tracks which complimented the progress Russia made after the incident.
The album is now available for digital download (from the 01/02/2023) on the following digital sites or available on LIMITED CD and Vinyl as a double album on Bluebone Records enquire by Email contact link. Please note Vinyl production runs are extremely lengthy at the moment and our small run for May 2023 is currently at risk of slipping.
Les and Paul worked quite independently during the recording stage where Paul recorded and arranged all the keyboards, strings, choirs, acoustic guitars, Bass and Drums at the Trench whilst Les worked on the guitar lead parts in Hednesford in Staffordshire. Final Mix and Mastering was completed at the Trench in Shropshire in December 2022 and January 2023. The album cover painting was created by Harry Edge.
The album was recorded using Persons Studio one 5 and 6 Professional. Paul used various Spitfire orchestral suites and lab, Hofner, Rickenbacker, Gibson, Cort and Hamer Guitars, Les used Gibson, Fender and PRS guitars. A jolly good time was had by all
Paul and Les are currently in preproduction discussions for another project. Carl Wood and Dave Seaman from Lowfield will also be involved. More news to follow.

The Sleeping Moon.
Its patience is growing thinner and shorter
It’s sad languid smile disappearing by the day slowly
It’s cold, dusty exterior failing to survive
Yet its beauty is truly magnificent.
It’s at peace, no worries, and no lies to wear it down further.
The odd foreign object lands on its pale skin
It bears no malice, no opinion; it just sits there circling us, keeping us safe in our cocooned sense of security.
It almost laughs at us, or maybe it’s got a sense of pity towards the fools who make and those who follow................................................... and of course the remainder.
It does not judge...................... It does not blame.............................. It just observes our foolhardy attempt to live in peace.
It mocks our shallow beliefs and lampposts to lean on
It smiles in our attempts to hoard possessions, trinkets and must haves.
In return we attempt to colonise it as we have every corner of the earth......in search of profit, wealth and power.............with the deep veiled notion that its exploration.
It could soon be purely in the name of survival.
