National Album Day October 12th 2019
Our deadline to complete the CD is the end of this year. However, the BPI (British Phonographic Industry) decided on October 12th as their National Album Day (www.nationalalbumday.co.uk), a concept they started last year.
It is to mark the release of any CD in any given year with national coverage on radio and social media, as well as giving anyone releasing a CD in that year a platform to let the public know.
Their celebrations commence from 7 - 12th October, and their theme this year is #Don’tSkip. Guess what this means?
Our CD actually has six tracks of three segued pairs, so their theme was right up our street and therefore could not be ignored!
Even though their date made our deadline too early, we decided to honour the occasion with a Preview Gig at Cafe Capital on October 12th. .
We played a heady mixture of our original material from the CD plus covers on and off from 10am - 5pm - a veritable marathon. What do you think all the WALKING (YG) and RUNNING (PG) is for?
The reaction from locals was fantastic, our audience of coffee & tea drinkers made for a warm, enthusiastic and supportive atmosphere. Here's one of the tracks - One Note Samba:
