Order before 3pm for same day dispatch


We're big fans here of Warren Hampshire and Greg Foat's previous collaborative works 'Galaxies Like Grains Of Sand' and 'The Honeybear', both released on Edinburgh's own Athens Of The North imprint. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that we're equally enthused by the sudden emergence of another project, mere months after their last outing. Here's some words from AOTN head honcho Euan Fryer:

"This Hampshire & Foat project should not come as too much of a surprise to those familiar with Greg & Warren's music, influenced heavily by not just Jazz but the library sound of the 60's and 70's along with film soundtracks from the same golden era. Greg & Warren are avid collectors of this music, Greg sends me links night and day to LPs he has picked up digging on his travels. This constant search sends him down new musical pathways and often sparks a whole new concepts for projects. Warren and Greg are both fiercely creative talented individuals which means we have to keep them working, a challenge for us all, but the music rewards the effort many times over.

We had talked for a long time about doing a Library style LP (something Greg is very passionate about) so during different recording sessions Greg & Warren started laying down various tracks with a view to the LP we have here.

Side one is 5 tracks in very distinct styles, musical paintings for the big screen. The vast sound of the Japanese influenced Jasmine, The Spaghetti Western melancholy of Mariposa Lily, The call to action that is Antonio's Theme, The Breezy Vintage sports car in the sun that Coastal Drivepaints, and Lost in Nostalgia, a late night Poirotesk piece.

Side two Is a classic library suite, which Greg describes as a Detective's theme with different variations on the motifs."
