[News] Galahad Electric Company announce the release of “When The Battle Is Over”

Stuart Nicholson and Dean Baker have utilized the ‘lock-down’ period and have come up with a collection of songs and ideas, many of which they have decided to release under the name of the ‘Galahad Electric Company’ which has been re-activated for the first time in over 20 years.

Commenting on the release: “This is mainly because of the electronic nature of these songs although the album does contain an eclectic mix of styles including an adaptation of ‘My Orcha’d in Linden Lea’ which is an adaptation of the poem of the same name written in 1856 by the famous Dorset dialect poet and friend of Thomas Hardy, William Barnes. Others include a song featuring Stu’s cat Sammy Gorgeous on meows (Mysterioso), plus various nods to electronica, Krautrock, folk, opera, dance and gospel music as well as the usual progressive overtones.”
