Journey into a little magic and fortune telling for our take on The Weepies’s “Fancy Things”!
Made famous by Linda Ronstadt, this song was written by Clint Ballard Jr. and was given to Andrea as a “Secret Santa” challenge at the end of 2017. Here’s what we made of it!
A seasonal question for all you romantic types. We went to our respective mailboxes in Scotland and Massachusetts to post our invitations, but look what happened! Here’s our take on Frank Loesser’s beautifully optimistic song to bring 2017 to a close.
One of the two Stevie Wonder songs we recorded for the “Year Of Living Stevie” podcast, earlier in 2017, we had an opportunity to add a video thanks to a suitable theme challenge over at Theme Music. Stevie’s words (originally about President Nixon) seem to have stood the test of time pretty well.
By special request we recorded this cover of the Joni Mitchell classic, “Both Sides Now”.
On the occasion of our second ever get-together, we did a handful of live performances at Owen’s piano. Here’s our almost-spontaneous, slightly mad take on They Might Be Giants’s “Lucky Ball And Chain”.
A must-do for the “Natural” theme in Theme Music, this Nat King Cole classic gets the full AW treatment. It was also a bucket-list song for Andrea.
Hey! You can hear our interview with Daryl Bean on the 14th August edition of the “Year Of Living Stevie” podcast now. Check it out here! We had a wonderful time chatting to Daryl, about the origins of the Aeon Wanderers, our youthful recording woes, the merits of tape hiss, and of course the music of Stevie Wonder.
We recorded two songs for the episode: “You Haven’t Done Nothin'” and “Stay Gold”. Click the link and give us a listen!
“Songs, Bond Songs – The Music of 007” is an amazing covers project spearheaded by Andrew Curry, featuring all the James Bond film themes to date, covered by artists from around the world. In addition to the CD, a bonus EP of rejected Bond themes has been created for Kickstarter contributors. Blondie’s unused “For Your Eyes Only” was selected for inclusion, and we are delighted to put our stamp on it for the project!
You can hear it here. A video will eventually follow – watch this space!
When Andrea introduced Owen to Jon Brion’s album Meaningless, it was inevitable that something would happen. This was it! Or at least the start of it. And it didn’t ruin our day either.
