Canterbury prog rock is still alive 'n' kicking and our new album entitled 'Marlowe's Children' is now available on both 12" Virgin Vinyl and on CD. The 33rpm LP is a limited edition, manufactured in high quality heavyweight 180gm vinyl which comes in a laminated gatefold sleeve - Just like the good old days! There's a CD edition and it's also available to download... But let's face it - Vinyl's best. Always has been!

And if wasn't enough, Dave Radford and Steve Wyse chatted with Peter Barnett at Seaside Radio about the band's latest album.
Are you sitting comfortably?
Jack Simmonds was both a talented guitarist and songwriter who was born
in Canterbury during the late 1940s.
Despite their considerable talent, Jack’s band ‘Marlowe’s Children’, never broke through into the mainstream.
Tragically, Jack died just as his revived band was about to sign to a well-known record label. ‘Part One - The Innocence’ is the story of Jack’s early years as recalled by those who loved him, in particular life-long friends Bill and Kelly. They hint at the tragedies of his childhood, including the untimely death of both his parents and how he remained optimistic, inspiring others with his generosity and love of music.
