£3,117

Me & the Irregulars have recorded this rather fine noisy album of post-punk/folk rocknroll (whatever... i am primarily known as a songwriter. The Guardian calls me "An English original" & Mike Harding recently kindly said I am "one of our best singer songwriters ever". There's a website: www.robbjohnson.co.uk which might help). The Irregulars this time are John Forrester on bass, Arvin Johnson on drums, Linze Maesterosa on saxophone & poet Roger Stevens on keyboards. We recorded 12 songs; the plan is to put 8 out as an LP / CD album (several of these clock in at around or over the 5 minute mark), 2 out as a Record Store day single, & 2 will be exclusive bonus tracks only available, with acoustic versions of the album, as a CD reward with this project. Hope you'll support us. Irregular Records - which is essentially me - has existed for - blimey! - 30 years now. It's completely independent, & releases albums where artists have complete control. If you support us, you'll be helping us continue this way of working. 

Risks and challenges

well, it will be the usual catalogue of disasters I expect. But we'll carry on regardless, whatever.
