Fat Billy Shouts Mine
We're hard at work on an EP for release later this year, prior to the completion of the next album, English Electric.
More news on the EP later, but in the meantime, here is an excerpt from one of the songs on the EP, Fat Billy Shouts Mine. It's a sad tale about a footballer called William 'Fatty' Foulke, a goalkeeper from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The excerpt isn't mixed or nuffink, so it's a bit rough and ready, but you'll get the general idea.
The fiery Moog Voyager solo is from Martin Orford.
