A Brief History of the album by Gary Page
“It all started on a holiday with my friends in France sometime around New Years Eve, 2012. One evening the subject of New Year’s resolutions came up and we came to the conclusion that none of us had ever committed to this age old tradition. We decided to act and resolutions were made that ranged from getting published to becoming an astronaut. My resolution was modest but still a stretch for a serial procrastinator. I pronounced to my friends that I would record one new song a month.
Once back on English soil I dusted off the microphones, strapped on a guitar and armed with a few new (and slightly older) songs, I set off on my year long recording odyssey. Before I knew it, twelve months had passed and twelve songs had been recorded. In that time my nephew was born, my football team got promoted, however my pal Mark never made it to space. So here’s the album. I made the editorial decision to cut two songs as they didn’t quite fit in with the context of the album. I hope you don’t feel short changed, I like to think I’ve made your listening experience fractionally better.”
Brilliant indie pop album from Dave Ford band member and solo artist in his own right. Classic pop in the mould of Teenage Fanclub, Allo Darlin’, Elliot Smith and Roddy Frame. As well as being a great album £5 from each copy goes to the MacMillan cancer charity trust.
Limited edition of 100 copies.
