It’s with great pleasure and a cheeky grin that I am able to announce the forthcoming Hit By A Rock LP: Wounded, coming soon on the Other Sounds label. Brrrap!
Dave Henderson, label ‘over-seer’, approached me in the summer. He said he was setting up the Other Sounds label, an offshoot of the mighty Cherry Red Records, and would like to release a Hit By A Rock LP. Other Sounds will concentrate on electronic music of many flavours, ranging from the historical right through to the current (ie, yours truly).
Since then I’ve been working solidly to complete it. And now it’s done. Phew.
I’ve got some amazing vocal artists guesting on the LP:
- British-Tamil singer Susheela Raman, an incredible and mesmeric singer and performer, justifiably nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2001.
- Spoken-word artist Raymond Antrobus, poet, International Farrago slam champion in 2008 and Anti-Slam Champion in 2010.
- Supremely talented singer, musician and visual artist Zayna Daze.
- Zewditu Yohannes, brilliant Ethiopian folk singer and ‘Eskista’ dancer (the dance that’s said to have inspired the Harlem Shake).
They all graciously made enormous contributions, for which I am ever indebted. I’m very pleased and proud to feature their artistic contributions.
Album coming “soon”. Watch this space…
