Item ID: 518735

Deep in the Berkshire suburbia lives a man named Mordecai Smyth. He was the first artist to sign to the independent record label Mega Dodo back in 2011. That year saw the release of the pop-psych album, 'Sticky Tape And Rust' and the single 'Georgina Jones.' In 2017, Mordecai released a more progressive sounding album, 'The Mayor Of Toytown Is Dead' to critical acclaim: it was voted "album of the year" in the American Goldmine magazine's "Spin Cycle" section by Dave Thompson. 2022 sees the release of his third album, 'Things Are Getting Stranger On The Shore.' This album builds on the previous one, giving a progressive, and art rock feel, whilst skirting around alternative rock/pop genres. Imagine Van Der Graaf Generator on quaaludes and you're part of the way there. As with 'Toytown' which featured special guest Dave Lambert from the Strawbs 'Shore' features guest appearances by Jon Camp, formerly of Renaissance, Icarus Peel and Crystal Jacqueline. LImited to 250 copies.

Also available: THINGS ARE GETTING STRANGER ON THE SHORE (CD).

Purple black splatter vinyl. Imagine a world where Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames jam with The Beatles and Cream, the music they'd make might sound somthing like 'Georgina Jones', a happy, riff driven pop song about the girl of your dreams.
