After turning Alan McGee's head, the band have taken a little time out to work on upcoming releases, one of them being this absolute beauty of a football anthem dedicated to Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.
Philip James Turner & The Crow Mandala are an Americana/Indie UK seven piece band hailing from the Naples of the North, Morecambe, Lancashire.
The Crow Mandala is headed up by Philip James Turner as you might have guessed, and was initially conceived as a one off project to be included in the programme for Morecambe's Vintage by The Sea Festival in 2014. Alas, like all narcissistic musician types the band decided it was too good to discard, and so on it went.
Assembled are a mix of childhood friends & blaggards drafted in from past projects, or borrowed from others, those being:
Philip James Turner : Vocals & Guitar
Matt Troughton : Guitar
Adam Lucas : Drums
Charlie Burns : Bass
Graham Simpson : Keys
Anthony Gregson : Bass
Mark McCorriston : Trumpet & Vocals
Yes, two bass players....
The debut album 'Bright Lights' was recorded in the spring of 2017 at Papillon Studios in Lancaster, produced by Louis Davy. The band have been performing the album at venues and festivals across the North West over the Summer witha variety of features, interviews and sessions on BBC Radio Lancashire and various others.
Bright Lights will be available from all the usual digital media outlets and will be released on December 8th.
One of the most cherished British artists working in music today, Frank Turner will release a retrospective set spanning his illustrious career in November. Songbook will bring together highlights from across Frank’s six albums alongside ten brand new versions of some of his most well-loved tracks.
