Chimpan A is a project initially conceived by Rob Reed (Magenta, Trippa), but it soon took on a whole life of it's own. With Steve Balsamo (The Storys, plus appearances with artists such as David Gilmour, Roger Daltry, and Robert Plant) and Rob Thompson (The Storys), this debut CD is a masterpiece. Special guests Sam Brown (Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Jools Holland, solo work), Aitch McRobbie (David Gilmour, Deep Purple), Christina Booth (Magenta, Trippa), Margo Buchannon (Eric Clapton, Seal, Joni Mitchell), Sian Cothi (Phantom Of The Opera), Tony Dallas & Ryan Ashton. An astonishing album with influences from Pink Floyd to Moby, pushing boundaries and breaking new ground. Blending smooth pop, classical music, samples and spoken word, this amazing musical creation demands to be heard. Very contemporary yet progressive in spirit, the songwriting is first rate throughout, providing a melodic backbone to a remarkable album. Track Listing: Theme From Chimpan A (Part 1) / It's Only Sin / You Move In Me / Future 1 / The Secret Wish / Sam's Song / Future Love Games / The Last Night On Earth / The Thief / Are You With Me? / I Came To Say… / Theme From Chimpan A (Part 2)
The C-Sides were formed in 2007 by Magenta band members Martin Rosser, Allan Mason-Jones and Dan Fry. Taking the modern rock element of Porcupine Tree and weaving it with the classic early 1970's Rush sound, they made the C-Sides.
Featuring the layered guitars of Martin Rosser, the punchy drums of Allan Mason-Jones and the dynamic vocals of Dan Fry, the C-Sides came together to make a classic rock album, that also captures elements of the modern heavy bands of the moment.
