For those of you who don't know, Andrew Purcell and Nigel Ratcliffe have been writing songs together on and off since 1977!
However, The story finally gets going in the internet age and when Andrew finally had a computer he could record on, so Colin the computer made the trio complete (now replaced by Linda weefee the laptop)
So from 2011 onward we have
'An evening with', re released as 'another evening with' all instrumentals mostly of Nigel's origin,
2012 saw 'Not Now', re released as "Not Now revisited", concentrating on songs from the 1982-83 period
'The Early Years 2011 -2014' is a sort of best with tracks from the first two albums and stuff from 'as was' and 'Life is everything that happens in between'
'Life as was' completes the rest of the tracks from the aforementioned releases
2015 'The Ghosts of Rookery Park/Drowning in a wishing well' single
The 'story album' "Future past sounds", with out takes 'Future past it seems/Frantic single'
The year concluded with the EP's 'Cecil and other stories' and 'Fireworks across the sky'
2016 there were singles and EPs check "Our Land Is Sacred / Wood"
"We don't know where we're going but we're going there anyway"
2018 saw further Ep's and singles, we recommend "Riviere Sands" for a summer vibe
