Frost* was formed in 2004 by keyboard player and singer Jem Godfrey, Released in 2006 the band’s debut album “Milliontown” was an instant success and is regarded by many as a classic in the modern prog rock genre featuring John Mitchell on guitar, John Jowitt on bass and Andy Edwards on drums. The band quickly followed it up with Experiments In Mass Appeal in 2008, in many ways the antithesis of Milliontown featuring a much more stripped back sound, more concise songs and a new band member and singer in the form of Dec Burke.

The live album The Philadelphia Experiment followed in 2009 and the a long gap followed before 3rd album Falling Satellites was released in 2016 with a new line-up of Nathan King on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, plus returning guitarist and singer John Mitchell on guitar who also co-wrote much of the album with Jem Godfrey.

Plane Groovy to re-issue Big Big Train’s English Electric Part One and Part Two

Plane Groovy is very excited to announce the re-release of English Electric Part One on double heavyweight colored vinyl (transparent light blue). Pre-ordering is now live at Burning Shed with a release date of 18 October 2019.

This edition is unnumbered. There has been strong demand for a rerelease of the album, from those who have either come slightly late to the party, or those who have only recently (re?)adopted the vinyl format.

We felt it important to clearly differentiate between the long out of print first pressings and these new versions, but that it was important to retain the integrity of the artwork so that as a package it fits in on the BBT shelf! There are a couple of changes which should be mentioned: Firstly, due to the planned vinyl release of The Underfall Yard in 2020, we’ve changed the bonus tracks on Side 4 as you can see from the image below.

Of note, this version of Seen Better Days, recorded at Real World Studios, features Tim Bowness as guest vocalist. Secondly, the audio has been remastered by Rob Aubrey to offer an even wider dynamic range than last time. As a result of these changes, the album has been given a different catalog number and barcode since this edition is demonstrably “different” from the original release.

450 copies will be available through Burning Shed, the remaining 50 copies will be available from Nellie at The Merch Desk, for those attending the upcoming live concerts.

Plane Groovy is also very excited to announce the re-release of English Electric Part Two on double heavyweight colored vinyl (transparent orange).

Pre-ordering is now live at Burning Shed with a release date of 18 October 2019. This edition is unnumbered.

There has been strong demand for a rerelease of the album, from those who have either come slightly late to the party, or those who have only recently (re?)adopted the vinyl format.

We felt it important to clearly differentiate between the long out of print first pressings and these new versions, but that it was important to retain the integrity of the artwork so that as a package it fits in on the BBT shelf!

The tracklisting is identical to the original release, however, the audio has been remastered by Rob Aubrey to offer an even wider dynamic range than last time. This album has the same catalog number. and barcode as the original release, since audio mastering is the only real change.

450 copies will be available through Burning Shed, the remaining 50 copies will be available from Nellie at The Merch Desk, for those attending the upcoming live concerts.

CARMINE APPICE’S GUITAR ZEUS ALBUM FEATURING THE BEST & WORLD-RENOWNED GUITARISTS

A GUITAR ENTHUSIASTS DREAM COME TRUE!

Legendary drummer Carmine Appice is scheduled to re-release his GUITAR ZEUS project, a compilation album featuring a who’s who list of the best and world-renowned guitarists on the planet backed by his core band featuring Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder) on bass, Kelly Keeling (T.S.O., M.S.G) on vocals/keys/rhythm guitar, and Appice on drums.Written and playing some well crafted timeless songs.

“The Guitar Zeus project, for me, was an amazing experience that has never been done before by a drummer, especially with so much talent on one album! You get your money’s worth! Writing all the songs with my band (Tony & Kelly) and then picking out songs for each guitarist was a fun time-consuming process, especially coordinating everybody’s schedules and recording sessions.

From the opening note, one can tell this is going to be something special. I consider these drum tracks to be some of the best performances in my career, topped off with working with so many great guitarists and singers.  The combination of players and song selection is something special with some of the tunes is out of the ordinary and ahead of their time!” 

– Carmine Appice

“As soon as I heard the track, I thought it had a very haunting quality, evoking the ‘60s, but with a very modern slant. I also found the backing track very powerful and appealing, driven by Carmine’s very recognizable style; so I was keen to play on the track straight away” 

– Brian May

About Carmine Appice:
As drummer for Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice set the grooves for the groundbreaking band’s 1967 psychedelic debut, inadvertently inventing Stoner Rock in the process. The Fudge had no precedent. The band was totally unique. No rock group, up until that point, had ever so lugubriously s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out well-known pop tunes. Vanilla Fudge went on to tour with Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and even had Led Zeppelin as an opening act.

Post-Fudge, Bogert and Appice formed Cactus (seen as an influence on Van Halen & King’s X). Post-Cactus, the rhythm section found Grammy-winning Guitar Hero Jeff Beck to form the first supergroup: Beck, Bogert & Appice.

One of the premier showmen in rock, Appice became known worldwide for his astonishing live performances and a highly sought-after session drummer, recording with countless artists throughout his career. In 1976, he joined Rod Stewart’s band, touring, recording and writing two of Stewart’s biggest hits, “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “Young Turks.” He left Stewart to record his first solo album, Rockers, and tour Japan and North America with an all-star band. In 1978, Appice played drums on Paul Stanley’s first solo album.

In the early 1980s, he toured with Ozzy Osborne, Ted Nugent. In the mid ’80s, he formed King Kobra for two Capitol albums and international touring. In the late ‘80s, Carmine played on Pink Floyd’s “Momentary Lapse of Reason and formed Blue Murder with Whitesnake’s John Sykes and The Firm’s Tony Franklin. In the early ’90s, he pounded away soul-style for The Edgar Winter Group.

As an educator, Carmine was the first to legitimize rock drumming with his landmark book, The Realistic Rock Drum Method, selling over 400,000 copies (now in dvd and ebook  format). He was the first Rock Drummer and Rock Musician to conduct instructional clinics and symposiums around the world, a tradition he continues. In appreciation for his universal appeal, Los Angeles was one of four cities that have had “Carmine Appice Day.”  In 1991, he was forever immortalized via his induction in cement to the Hollywood’s Rock Walk (next to his idols, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich).

In 2016 Carmine wrote an autobiography titled “Stick It” which appeared on Amazon’s “Best Sellers” list.

As a true artist, Carmine stretches the limits of his talents, always pursuing new experiences with a broad spectrum of musicians. His high standards have earned him the respect of the world’s most admired performers as well as captivating the loyalty of legions of fans. He has reshaped the path of music education, redesigned the very instrument he plays, and recreates excitement with every performance.

Carmine Appice is, truly, A Different Drummer!
