Baby Grand

Augustus Crun brushed the remaining flecks of that morning's porridge from his hair and made his way to the music room, pausing only to stroke Les Baxter, the fleabitten ginger cat he'd had stuffed 15 years earlier after the unfortunate incident with the steam roller.

After wading through the precarious piles of old 78's and copies of Jet-Age Monthly, he fired up the String-o-Tron 1900, and coaxed a few tentative notes from its wheezing valves...

Charlie Thorley at Club Grand

Charlie Thorley

Charlie contributed most of the guitar, and much sage production feedback, on And Dream Of..., recorded in his Wide Open Sound studio in Adelaide and sent via carrier pigeon with a USB port.

He's a multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer and producer, writing instrumental music and creating audio content for independent short films and TV.

Rachel Reason at Club Grand

Rachel Reason

Rachel's lush hamonies on Where Is Love? don't begin to do her range and power justice.

She's been singing in pro and semi-pro rock, pop and ska bands since the 80's, in the UK, Australia and Malaysia, and currently fronts her band Rude Awakening, probably the best covers band in South West UK.

Dave Williams at Club Grand

Dave Williams

Dave contributed the dreamy tremolo guitar on the track And Dream Of..., and was the guitarist in the early Baby Grand gigs.
