STILL IN THE WAR, BOYS! - new CD and download from THE CROWS OF ALBION

entry picture

My music project THE CROWS OF ALBION have released their new CD and DOWNLOAD on 1st October 2014.

21 tracks across 80 minutes featuring 14 poems I first posted to Write Out Loud (see link to tags below) set to musical backings. The remaining songs are covers versions (Motorhead & Bob Dylan) and traditional wartime favourites 'Pack Up Your Troubles...' and 'It's A Long Way To Tipperary'.

There are also 2 Wilfred Owen poems included, thanks to the Wilfred Owen Society allowing use of 'Dulce Et Decorum Est' and 'Anthem For Doomed Youth'.

20% of the sale price will be donated to HELP FOR HEROES and ROYAL BRITISH LEGION charities.

The CD is available direct drom me - at a price of £10 - so, if you are interested please MESSAGE ME and I'll get back to you with more details.

Alternatively, if you prefer DOWNLOADS then it is available for the same price from my BANDCAMP page (link is also displayed below). You can also listen to all the tracks (FREE OF CHARGE) on the BANDCAMP page - and can purchase individual tracks for £0.60.

More details are availble on my website (link also below).

I am already booking gigs in support of this release - so if you would like me to perform at any World War One centenary events (spoken word or with full songs using music backings) then please get in touch - I'm willing to travel a reasonable distance to be involved.

Many thanks for all the kind feedback and comments that you, the community of WOL, have given me as these poems have appeared on the site. You have helped shape a powerful and quite different body of work for me - and I'm very pleased with the results.

Please give the tracks a listen and if I can provide any further information or be of any more help - please get in touch either by messaging me or direct to my bands email address:
