‘Meanwhile Back In Medieval Britain…’, album number 7 from Groovy Uncle, has been sent to the pressing plant and is now in production. It will see a limited release on heavyweight vinyl (including download card and lyric sheet) and CD (digi pack), some time in September. Album art (above) by Darryl Hartley is utterly superb (see picture). Many thanks to him for coming up with a great design! Darryl also wrote the title track, as well as the album’s finale, ‘Astronauts’. His Senior Service bandmate, Jon Barker also came up with two songs for the LP in the form of ‘You Think Too Much Of Me’ and ‘Days Like This’. The latter features the guitar playing of another Senior Service buddy (and former member of Medway legends The Prisoners), Graham Day as well as backing vocals from GU Newcomers Ani Graves and Rachel Lowrie. Bronco Bullfrog drummer, singer/songwriter Andy Morten contributes the wonderful West Coast sounding ‘She’ll Never Be Mine’. Seven of the twelve tracks are written, as usual by Glenn Prangnell who also takes on some of the lead vocal duties. Ani and Rachel share lead vocals on ‘It Wasn’t Me, It Was Yesterday’ while Suzi Chunk takes on the opening track ’20/20 Hindsight’ as well as ‘Lie To You’ and ‘Reading Between The Lines’. Miss Modus makes a welcome return to the fold with a breathtaking performance of ‘Good Child’. Coming soon! I’ll keep you posted!!
