Love vs History album – Tim Cross Music Project

More from the Tim Cross Music Project…timcrossmusicproject.bandcamp.com/album/love-vs-history

“Recorded between 1991 and 2007, Love vs History is a compilation of material recorded by Tim and singer-songwriter Ian Roland at Tim’s Robertsbridge studio.

“The earliest tracks (2, 10) feature the pair accompanied by Tim’s longtime associates Ginny Clee (vocals) and Simon Edwards (bass), the latter of whom he met through the band Red Box. Edwards was subsequently a member of Fairground Attraction. Clee and Edwards also joined Tim in TV Smith’s mid-80s band TV Smith’s High.

“Tracks 4, 8 and 9 were recorded in 2007, with Tim augmenting Roland’s own band Kokopelli, featuring Darren Eve (vocals, guitars) and Maria Marzaioli (vocals, violin).” Dave Thompson

Live gigs

After those two years of pandemic lockdown, and in attempt to get away from the distress of watching the ongoing Conservative leadership elections, I have been out and about gigging a fair bit over the last few months. Here are links to some videos up on Facebook of a gig I did this week for Hive Events at The Pavilion Cafe in Eastbourne. These tracks will be on a new album I have been working on for the last two years, with Simon Yapp, Brione Jackson, Nick Van Vlaenderen and others, which will be released very soon…
