01.11.11 The Sound Movement in the Studio

This Friday The Sound Movement hit the studio to begin recording the follow up to their debut album Ichi Go Ichi E which was released in 2006 in collaboration with Oxford label Truck Records. This also follows up the EP (now deleted) “Memory and the Human Heart” and the single “The Last Time ” which actually proved an omen when the band split in 2010. Having reconciled their differences, the founding members Kat Johnston and Andrew Day are ready to bounce back from challenging times in Tokyo, London and Manchester from 2004-2011 which included among other things all members of the band suffering some kind of serious injury, illness and/or hopitalisation, including a serious assault on guitarist/singer Andrew Day which put him out of action for a lengthy period at the end of 2008. In the pure “One Meeting, One Chance” spirit of the band, a chance meeting in Australia sees a new drummer stepping in, Bruce Aitken who has collaborated and played with artists as diverse as Ed Mann (Frank Zappa’s band) and Fred Eaglesmith. This is the first time Bruce has been involved in this type of sound so it proves to be a very interesting record indeed! More news as things progress…
