Reunion dates!

The original members of TRC have decided to get together this year to celebrate 30 years (!) since the release of their 1986 debut single "A Gentle Sound" on Factory Records. The first rehearsal happened this weekend in Wigan, and found the guys in great form, working through a set of songs. The plan is to play several UK dates later this year. More news to follow!

Latest additions to iTunes Store

The latest additions to the burgeoning TRC catalogue at iTunes are Recurrence & Native Place. Click the links to view them in the iTunes Store. Also recently added are a series of Radio One live sessions: BBC in concert, Nicky Campbell, Liz Kershaw and Janice Long.

Recurrence & Native Place - Re-mastered

Re-mastered versions of Recurrence & Native Place are now available on my label Ether Records. Recurrence includes the extra track "Second Nature" (originally the b-side of "In The Meantime" single). Native Place includes the previously single only release "So Right". Both albums benefit greatly from being digitally re-mastered. Available in stores and online this month. See further album info below.

Other Songs

I've collected together some info on the music I worked on while living in Japan between 2003-2010. All in all, it was a lot of fun working there and I got to meet some great artists, musicians and engineers along the way. See it here.
