Artwork for the upcoming Chicken Legs Weaver CD release is now being proofed. The art was designed by Andy’s friend Martin Bedford, known locally as a prolific concert poster designer whose vibrant work hasbeen helping publicise rock shows in Sheffield for four decades. Having looked at the art, English Electric decided that rather than go down the traditional jewel case route, we would release the album in a double gatefold digipak.
Lost Garden have lined up a new venue to play; Eten, a cafe / bistro / tearoom next door to Sheffield Cathedral. We dropped in for some hot choccy after a gig at the Cathedral last year and had a guided tour of the performance area upstairs. They haven’t really ventured into the “experimental” musical field, so we’re hoping it will be a success and help establish a superb City-centre venue.
Alongside us will be Inclusion Principle, featuring Martin Archer – laptop, woodwinds, Hervé Perez – laptop, woodwinds, Peter Fairclough – drums and percussion, and afterwards, we hope, a chance to play together – always an exctiing prospect!

When our products are ready, English Electric will sell CDs through an approved retailer, Easy On The Eye. You can visit the shop here.

As a teenager, I loved the Pink Floyd “Relics” compilation, especially the final track, Cirrus Minor, which always took me with it as it faded. So, for Cotoledon, we decided to have a similarly reflective final track, which also has musical references to the opening track. Here’s the final minute or so, featuring the inimitable vocals of Frostlake.
The track is called “Zasada” and is dedicated to Krys Zasada, a musician I was just getting to know in a band when cancer took him from us earlier this year.
The tracks have been mastered, we have identified the pressing plant for producing the CDs and the artwork is almost finalised. We’re aiming for a release date of early January for both titles, with a launch party for each title 😉
Following some intense trawling through people’s attics, a selection of master tapes from Dig Vis Drill recording sessions in the 80s have turned up. We’re looking at getting these digitised with a view to release, once we can lay our hands on a 15ips reel to reel machine 😉
