Allan Crockford – From The Prisoners to The Galileo 7
Allan Crockford is best known as the bassist in Medway’s seminal act, The Prisoners, who paved the ground in the 80s for the British baggy scene and 90s Britpop. However latterly as his song writing has bloomed he’s stepped out as lead for The Galileo 7. They have a great new album out, False Memory Lane, that is arguably more reflective than his collaborations with former Prisoner Graham Day.

Allan speaks to Jason Barnard to share his thoughts on his career, various projects (including the new, rather splendid, Graham Day and The Forefathers single) and flourishing creative outlet in The Galileo 7. [Read More...]

....you're going to get hooked on this album in someway.
I don't think it's a stretch to say that if they were around in the 60's, they would of become one of those timeless names that everyone still praises to this day, some 50 years later. If you can't manage to find the vocals catchy, you're going to find something that gets stuck in your head, be it the riffs, melodies, the whole thing is catchier than herpes. [Read More...]
