THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Whilst spring cleaning during Covid and digging deep into his archives Shaun found an unreleased solo album down the back of the sofa.

“Of course it turns out to be one of his best records and is stuffed full of the classic wonk pop, insidious melodies and killer grooves that bring the funk. It’s a pick ’n’ mix of styles from mischievous pop chops, hip-swinging bass, desert guitars and Stones swagger brought into a full Polaroid by the upbeat, darkly funny, Day-Glo music that will soundtrack this summer. Says Shaun: “In my delusional ADHD brain it’s my Sgt. Pepper full of different flavoured songs.”
