"Bluebird, Hollywood ... Domino" by The Gorstey Lea Street Choir
Some projects take longer to come together than others. As teenagers in Manchester in the '80s Michael Clapham and Russ Phillips, who were in separate bands, discussed working together. And finally, it has happened - please meet The Gorstey Lea Street Choir. They released an EP last December (Bandcamp link), and will release an eight-song LP titled ‘…from Prince’s Park to Farsley - Volume I’ on July 9. While we don't have the album yet, we do have "Bluebird, Hollywood ... Domino", the album's first single. The song has a peaceful, '60 psychedelic pop vibe that we find quite appealing. It also has a trippy video to underscore the effect.
The single and album, as well as the recent EP, are released via 500 Broadcast Recording Co.
