Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd
met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3
weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten
wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te
regelen, maar het blijft lastig...
|Artiest||Galahad Electric Company|
|Genre||Progressive / Neoprog / RIO|
|Omschrijving||Avalon Records is proud to present a second
‘unexpected’ new album ‘Soul Therapy’ from Galahad
off shoot project the ‘Galahad Electric Company’
featuring Dean and Stu, less than a year after
their ‘When the battle Is Over’ album was
The album features seven brand new songs written
in a very productive four week period straddling
November and December 2020 plus several songs left
over from the Summer 2020 recording sessions for
‘When the battle Is Over’.
Again, due to more constraints than normal as far
as the recording process was concerned a certain
amount of experimentation was involved with some
of the songs, a few of which were completely ‘ad-
libbed’ in the moment as it were. As with the
previous album Dean and Stu didn’t work face to
face at all during this latest project.
‘Soul Therapy’ is also, as the name suggests, one
of the most personal and raw collections of songs
ever written by Stu, indeed no less than six of
the tracks relate directly to the sad passing of
Stu’s mother, Maureen, in November 2020 from
Lymphoma cancer after a long, often tortuous but
determined five year battle against the disease.
Suitably sympathetic sound tracks and arrangements
were provided as usual by the incredibly creative
and empathetic Dean Baker.
Thus, much of the subject matter is very much
centered around strong, often dark and extreme
emotions felt in trying to deal with the grief of
such a loss including those of anger, frustration,
pain and sorrow along with more reflective
feelings such as healing, acceptance and hope for
the future as well as fond memories of the past.
The writing process also proved extremely
cathartic and helped towards dealing with such a
tumultuous and life changing event.
