I’ll soon be back in the studio to begin work on the next GU album. This one is has all the usual ingredients including various musician friends contributing to the record but the one thing that makes this project different from all the others is that I am not the sole songwriter! My good chums Jon Barker and Darryl Hartley of The Senior Service and Andy Morten of Bronco Bullfrog are contributing some of their tunes alongside mine and their will also be some guest vocalists making their GU debut. I’m very much looking forward to it all and I will keep you posted!
Very pleased to say the debut album from Jim Riley’s Blues Foundation is now up for pre – order on the shop page. ‘A Very British Blues Explosion’ is set for release on our very own Trouserphonic Records label on the 20th January but you can order your copy now on 12″ heavyweight Vinyl(+download code) or CD. It’s a killer of an LP!!
I’m very pleased to announce that the forthcoming album from Jim Riley’s Blues Foundation is to be released on my own label, Trouserphonic Records early next year. This will be the first non- Groovy Uncle/Suzi Chunk record for the label since we began self releasing in 2013. The project is the brainchild of Medway music legend and former Wipeout (among others) frontman Jim Riley and his backing band are Dave Read, Matin Bishop, David Arnold and Stuart Ellis of the highly regarded Medway band The Claim. I’m due to begin shooting a promo video for the album very soon. I will keep you posted!
A VERY strong set from beginning to end, “A Clip Round The Ear” is an absolute knockout of an album. Glenn Prangnell continues to amaze with his extremely sharp songwriting skills and sense of melody that carry on and build upon the very best of British Invasion era classic music. The soul and blues that Suzi Chunk bring add a depth and power that very few other current female singers can even come close to touching. This combination, known affectionately to fans as Unc N’ Chunk, blows the doors off every time. For a band that has made a huge impression on me from the first, I can easily say this is their best album to date and that’s no small statement. Anyone appreciating intelligent, witty and sharp lyrics combined with the very best of true rock, pop and soul, pick up this album. Unlike the other times you’ve caught a “Clip Round The Ear”, you’ll be thrilled you got this one.
