Songs of Drink & Revolution, 2014
Borrowing ideas from Leonard Cohen, Dylan Thomas and Tony Benn, these are politically charged songs but also intimate storytelling pieces looking at the big issues from personal perspectives.
Capturing the talents of trumpeter Martin Smith, guitarist Martin Heslop and Dean Ravera on bass, the arrangements shimmer with passion and imagination, drawing vibraphone, synth and harmonium in to the pallet. Fans of previous tracks such as 'England Loves a Poor Boy' and 'Poverty Knocks' will not be disappointed by the bite and fire of these new recordings.
