We couldn't think of a better way to herald a decade of our existence as a band than asking for your help in creating a 10 YEAR anniversary Vinyl LP! 

Over the years fans have asked time and time again if we are going to release any music on vinyl and, now that we are decade old, we have decided to try and make this happen. 

The vinyl has been an excuse for Chucks to dive into the archive and select 11 fan and band favourites for the pressing.  Some of our golden oldies have been fully remixed and mastered, with new instrumentation and effects.  These tracks will be exclusive to this vinyl.  

This project has given Mr Bruce a chance to drop the mic, don his graphic designer's hat and not only design the gate fold vinyl but paint a portrait of himself and Chucks for the cover image. 

Here's the tracklist:

  • What's Happened To Soho (2017 mix)
  • Washington Square (2017 mix)
  • Boss 
  • Inexplicable
  • Fear & Delight
  • No Working Today
  • Tonight
  • How It Feels
  • Kind Of Love (Graham Mushnik remix)
  • Alarm Call
  • Devil's Lighthouse (2017 mix)

The money raised will pay for the printing of the covers and the pressing of the vinyls themselves. We genuinely wouldn't exist without our committed fans and hope that you will once again support us to make this project come into fruition. If we hit our goal we'll be able to deliver the vinyls in time for Christmas!

Big Love. 

Mr Bruce & Chucks 

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is getting the word out there and persuading people to pledge. We've put a lot of love into designing the artwork and remixing and mastering the music so we're keen for the LP to be a prized possession in many a record collection! We hope that fans will see that the main pledge of £20 acts as a kind of pre-order for the Vinyl LP (which will retail at £20). So this is a straight up, no smoke-and-mirrors kinda deal!

We are massively appreciative of anyone who wants to get involved, pledge and share the project.

    The 10 YEAR Portrait, Lifetime Guestlist

    For £1500 you will be the proud owner of the original artwork which appears on the cover of the Vinyl LP. This is the portrait by Mr Bruce of himself and Chucks painted in oil on a circular wooden panel measuring 43cm in diameter. The painting is constructed of many delicately applied layers of oil paint with the use of stencil cut masking tape and a masterful control of impasto.

    You will also bag yourself a lifetime of guestlist places at Correspondents shows. This is for specific Correspondents events, they are not able to guarantee places for festivals.
