 Cherry Red Records are about to re-release the first Working Week Album -Working Nights with lots of B-sides and a couple of previously unreleased live tracks, in October. Still sounds amazingly fresh and the live tracks are wild.
Stonephace Stabbins play an Album launch gig at the Vortex in London on the Wednesday 17th October http://www.vortexjazz.co.uk/ and will be appearing at the London Jazz Festival on 17th November at the Clore Ballroom in the Royal Festival Hall. That gig will recorded for broadcast on BBC's Jazz Lineup. http://www.londonjazzfestival.org.uk Plus Larry plays another Cornish gig at the Polytechnic in Falmouth on 9th November with his local Cornish quartet. http://www.thepoly.org/

 We've been recording a new album at the Fish Factory in Willesden. All together in one very live room at the same time straight onto 16 track 2 inch tape, courtsey of Mr Studer,  playing new material as well as accoustic version of pieces from the Stonephace debut album. We even did a version of the old Working Week favourite Soul Train from the Companeros album. Larry,  pianist Zoe Rahman,  percussionist Crispin "Spry" Robinson , Karl Rasheed Abel on bass and Pat Illingworth on drums.  Proper old school jazz recording by Ben "Nostalgia 77"Lamdin.  This is essentially the accoustic rythym section from Jerry Dammers Spatial AKA Orchestra ,  so expect a synthesis of Exploratory Jazz with funk grooves, loads of percussion and eastern modes and Transcendental Euphoria.

We're mixing in November so watch this space for more news
