12/08: ALVIN GIBBS SOLO PROJECT UPDATE NUMBER 3
As previously reported on this website, Time & Matter Records will be releasing U.K. Subs bassist Alvin Gibbs' debut solo single and album.
Alvin has today posted an update to his Facebook page, as follows...
"OK Facebook chums, having freshly returned from the wondrous occasion that is the Rebellion Festival – which was as enjoyable and liver corroding as ever – I thought I’d offer an update on my solo recording project. Firstly, Time & Matter records are now taking pre-orders for my solo 7 inch coloured vinyl single that will be posted to your place of abode in October of this year.
Each hand numbered piece will feature cover art work by Gaye Black, formerly Gaye Advert, original bassist for the legendary first-wave punk band, the Adverts; and the guitar styling’s of Leigh Heggarty of the mighty Ruts DC on the A-side (Ghost Train), and ex-Damned, Lords of the New Church prodigy Brian James, on the G-side (Clumsy Fingers) – see what T & M have done there folks, A-side, G-side, Alvin Gibbs… get it?!!
There will be only 300 singles available so it might be advisable to pre-order now via this link before the limited pressing is no longer obtainable:
Secondly, the album, Your Disobedient Servant, is close to being finished – just another name guitarist to play on one remaining track followed by the mixing process and then mastering and sending off to the manufacturers in good time and order for an early December release.
I can reveal that as well as Brian James and Leigh Heggarty, ex-Generation X, and present Chelsea guitarists, James Stevenson, contributes some fine work to 2 tracks on my LP, while Barry ‘Barrington’ Francis of the Saints and my old touring/recording buddy from my stint with the band Cheap ‘n’ Nasty, Timo Kaltio, both grace a song apiece too; plus some sterling guitar work from my co-producer Steve Crittall, who usually employs his axe to great effect with the Godfathers.
I thank you all. X "
