Joe McAlinden – ‘Edit’

Release LNFGK07 is Joe McAlinden – ‘Edit’

Originally conceived in 2014 Edit (Tide backwards) is an almost entirely instrumental piece tackling grief and loss. Composed and performed on a water powered pipe organ. The piece was originally the musical portion of a multimedia collaboration between Joe, artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, writer Martin McCardie and arts producer Katie Nicoll. The complete work premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 2014.

Speaking about the project “Bizarrely, it was me who started it,” the former singer with the group, Superstar, says of the roots of a project that began more than a decade ago. “I was sitting on a rock, feeling a bit exposed. Not scared, but uneasy, and I started thinking about the tide as I watched the waves coming off the rocks, and the music it made as it built into this crescendo, and I thought, I’m going to do a piece one day and I’m calling it Edit, which is tide backwards.”


Tom Donnelly – ‘Germinal’

Release LNFGK08 is Tom Donnelly – ‘Germinal’

The debut solo album from Close Lobster’s guitarist Tom Donnelly features 12, mainly instrumental, offerings. The inspiration for the album clearly lies somewhere around Dusseldorf 1975 and that’s no bad thing.

A fantastic collection of Motor!k  with tracks such as Franz Klammer, Girolinde and … Und So Weiter.
