Leader of the Starry Skies is a tribute to Tim Smith, the mastermind behind such cult bands as Cardiacs, The Sea Nymphs and Spratleys Japs. Tim suffered a severe stroke in 2008 and all proceeds from the album will go towards his care.
The album will be released on Monday 13th December 2010. It features interpretations of Tim’s unique songs, performed by an array of his bandmates, friends and fans. The impressive lineup includes, among others: The Magic Numbers, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Oceansize, Andy Partridge (XTC) and the specially-reformed Ultrasound.
Those who pre-order will receive an exclusive bonus album free of charge. I’m delighted to say the contribution from my band Bug Prentice is included on the bonus album. So pre-order before it’s too late!
