Skywriting

Phil has recently recorded an album of original songs, ancient and modern,
with Boo Hewerdine and Chris Pepper at Saltwell Studio in Cambridgeshire.
Provisionally titled ‘Skywriting’, the album features Phil and Boo on
acoustic guitars and singing, together with the occasional whiff of vibes,
harmonium and dulcitone.
We hope you like it and will spend generously when we finally settle on an
escape date.
Meanwhile The PLB will continue our leisurely tour of the East Midlands and
beyond with gigs in March 2019 at Café Roya, Beeston, and The Musician,
Leicester.

Way to Go – OxJam Fundraiser

spice

We’ve joined forces to bring you a song for Beeston Oxjam 2018. Phil noticed a distinct lack of sea-faring songs around Beeston, and so composed a poignant shanty to complement the recent appearance of a beach just behind The Square. ‘Way to Go’ was recorded by Steve in his secret man-cave with the help of Frank and Mark. It features Simon Thompson’s outstanding a cappella group, Oldish Spice, together with the PLB and special guest Andy Inns on bodhran.

Way to Go is available from our Bandcamp page with all profits going to the wonderful Beeston Oxjam Takeover music festival that is raising funds for Oxfam.
