The Great Electric was formed in the winter of 2012 by Malcolm Doherty (Guitars, FX), Rob Hyde (Drums), Darren Hayman (Synth), Duncan Hemphill (Tones, Drones and FX) and Pete Gofton (Bass/Production). Alumni of bands as diverse as Hefner, Kenickie, GoKart Mozart & Mum and Dad, the band was united by a love of the classic German electronic and progressive acts of the 1970s coupled with the pop music sensibilities, hooks and production of 90s bands such as Stereolab, Quickspace and Electric Sound of Joy.

The Memory Band 'On The Chalk (Our Navigation Of The Line Of The Downs)' CD [VAN257]
Out on May 13th. Stephen is interviewed about some of the people who inspired the album:

RG Morrisson

RG Morrison 'Slumber' 7" [VAN259]
The R G Morrison are yet another band from Totnes Devon, although you wouldn't know it. They've played across the World at the biggest, smallest and weirdest festivals, on all manner of stages, support slots and carparks… although when in Totnes the four piece (of sorts) are the guy from the record shop, his wife, a theatre nurse and that New Yorker who drums for Jeffery Lewis. Anonymity is a good fit.

Oo other way to say it but ‘Flute Wrangler’ Laura J Martin is back with a follow up to the lauded ‘The Hangman Tree’.
No stranger to touring and collaborating, having previous stints with Euros Childs and Norman Blake’s ‘Jonny’, radio sessions a plenty and a stint on the festival circuit. Laura set off Reykjavik to record with Mike Lindsay (Tunng and Cheek Mountain Thief). The proposed solo record put on the back burner whilst they recorded a ep of collaborations. A travelogue of her visit, mashing field recordings with Lindsay’s wonky pop and then brought back to the UK for a citrus fresh session with Benge at the Mastering filter station. Just pop enough to fit the pages of experimental music, but also with enough of a experiment inside the idiom of pop so you know this will never be mainstream.
