Following the release of the “Life’s A Gift” album in 2015 I wanted to plough on with the next record. I had a bunch of songs that were inspired by and loosely based upon my childhood memories, both vague and lucid. Stories my parents told me, things I remembered, family anecdotes and the music I grew up listening to. I took all these things, embroidered, fleshed them out and used this as the basis for the next Unc’n’Chunk album. So once again we headed for Ranscombe Studios and got to work. As soon as I’d recorded the demos of two Suzi Chunk tracks, ‘Got Up And Gone’ and ‘Find The Morning’, I knew this would make a great (4th) single so we decided to release the first 45 on our own Trouserphonic label and on red vinyl too! The A side features the mighty Groovy Uncle horn section of Paul and Anna Jordanous and John Littlefair while over on the flip side Anna plays the mellow flute arrangement beautifully. We released the single on the 1st September 2016 and you can buy a copy here.
We are now about half way through recording our 6th album (count them!) and ideally I’d like to release it some time next year. However, financial setbacks are such that we may be looking at a later rather than sooner release date and I’m uncertain as to what format we’ll be looking at, though there is a strong possibility it’ll be put out as a download only album. That said, anything could happen in the coming months as all the songs are ready to go and I’m very much looking forward to getting back in the studio at some point. Thanks for your support. See you on the flip side!
