Hey! We’re on the Year Of Living Stevie podcast!

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!

 


For Bond’s Eyes Only!

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!


Ruin My Day, why don’t you?

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.


Dark Truth – a new original song!

Got stuck in a troublesome relationship?  Andrea has a few wise words for you.  🙂  Our second completed original takes the beltway around Motown on the road to discovery.


Try – another Theme Music all star cover

Another from our Theme Music collaborations archive.  For Andrea’s choice of Colbie Caillat’s “Try” we called upon the massed talents of fellow Themesters Gayle Graizzaro, Dara Diamant, Carey Anne, Diana Chadwell Brown, Linda Hodgson, Wendi Dunlap and Tess Hoffman.


*ahem* – Forget You – seems unlikely

This CeeLo Green song originally had two versions: the radio-friendly, “Forget You”, and the real version.  We did the real one.  So if you don’t like your F-words, skip on by.  But you’ll miss the Owenettes doing their thing!  😉


Charlie Darwin – a voyage on the Mayflower

Cast adrift in a world with no land, and only the ruins of civilisation, here’s our cover of The Low Anthem’s “Charlie Darwin”.


Love Lies Bleeding – a Theme Music collaboration

We originally met as members of the Theme Music group, wherein a weekly or fortnightly challenge is issued to find and record (or write) a song that fits the current theme.  While many of our early covers owe their origins to the many and varied themes issued, we’ve also teamed up with other group members on many occasions to produce bigger collaborations.  Here’s one epic example, featuring Bill Shaouy, Kyle Richards and Scott Sutherland.  From Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, here’s Elton John’s “Funeral For A Friend / Love Lies Bleeding”.  Yes – all of it!


Mystery Man – our first completed original song!

While we started work on several originals during 2016 and 2017, the first to be completed was our entry for an Out Of Stock challenge in early 2017.  We were given a stock photo of a man emerging from a computer keyboard … and this is what it inspired!


My Lovely Horse – in the saddle!

Not strictly an Aeon Wanderers cover, but Owen’s take on this Father Ted classic, by The Divine Comedy, pulled Andrea in on backing vocals and horse riding. For some inexplicable reason, this is our most popular collaboration.
