- CHARLIE HARPER RECORDING WITH CAPTAIN SENSIBLE
Charlie Harper has been recording a four track EP with The Damned's legendary guitarist Captain Sensible. The Captain has today 'tweeted' the picture to the right, with the comment: "Down the studio today working on Charlie Harper's new Krautrock influenced material."
Provisionally entitled the ‘Too Much Reality’ EP, the initial plans are to release the songs as a limited edition 7" single at 33 ⅓ rpm. The songs and cover artwork will, in the words of Charlie "have a 1960s style vibe but with a modern twist.”
The songs, with all the lyrics and music having been written by Charlie, have been recorded at Dean Van Jones' studio ‘Oscillate Recordings’, which is set in a private rural setting around 8 miles north of Brighton within sight of the South Downs and surrounding countryside. Dean has over 30 years of recording experience and also played drums on the tracks.
Charlie told T&M that he played guitar and bass on the tracks, with the Captain playing lead guitar, keyboard and, intriguingly, the iPhone on one track*.
This website is delighted to announce that the record will be released on our very own
Time & Matter Records label and the track titles for the 7" EP are called ‘Too Much Reality’, ‘Kamara’*, ‘Space Virgin’ and ‘Human Traffic’.
