We are excited to share that our new album Wine of Life will be released on January 20th 2023 and is available for pre-order now! Today, ‘Tango Mafioso’, the first single from the album, is available to stream and download. Pre-order Wine of Life and listen to Tango Mafioso here: https://sssk.lnk.to/wineoflife
And 2nd single, “Gamelan”, released on 17th December!
The two Cauld Blast Orchestra albums, long out of print, are now available as digital downloads on Bandcamp. Both have previously unreleased bonus tracks – three tunes recorded for the abandoned third CD, and two for an unfinished compilation album on Eclectic Records. The latter includes a wonderful collaboration with the great Dundonian singer-songwriter Michael Marra, on his “The Homeless Do Not Seem to Drink in Here”.
I’ve been recording videos and posting them on my Facebook page every Thursday during lockdown. Very low-tech, using an effects pedal, loop station and my phone. Mainly my own stuff, but also covers of Beefheart, Soft Machine, Caravan and Ken Dodd! They’re now up on YouTube – look up “Steve Kettley entertains at home”. Here’s #5 – my version of a Henry Cow tune.
