Steve Swindells is a singer/songwriter/musician/producer and artistic polymath. He owns all the rights to the tracks featured on here (PRS/MCPS) - apart from the Hawklords and Spirits Burning tracks - so all the other tracks and co-writes are available to sample (with permission and a suitable publishing split!) and to cover and/or licence.
Steve is building towards a new album with the working title 'Coolaborations' - inc collabs so far with Jay Tausig, Ralph Lenz, The Plastic Sturgeons, Hadas Balas, G and more. If you're totally brilliant and would like to COOLab - just shout!
The Plastic Sturgeons, Steve's ad-hoc, all-star jamming band, were honoured to be joined by one of the best bass players in the world, Guy Pratt (just google him - I'll mention Pink Floyd and Michael Jackson for starters) at their live gig at The Real Music Club In Brighton. Then Amy Winehouse's bass player and musical director Dale Davis guested at the next super-jam @ The Brunswick in Brighton on Nov 23rd. That was Steve's 61st b/day party too. All tracks were recorded by the most excellent Roy Weard.
Steve's new(old) double CD The Lost Albums was released on Feb 27th on Flicknife Records (http://www.flickniferecords.co.uk) and you can read the first review of it here: http://www.recordcollectormag.com/reviews/review-detail/8099 - also available from iTunes, Amazon.co.uk, Play.com and HMV.com
Steve's 1974 Album 'Messages' was digitally remastered and reissued on Esoteric/Cherry Red, in 2009, as was his classic 1980 album Fresh Blood (Atomhenge/Cherry Red).
Steve's double compilation album of home recordings and demos from the late 80s through to 2013 is called 'New Crescent Yard' and is available to download for just $10 here: http://stveswindells.bandcamp.com
Steve also played with the re-convened Hawklords (he was in the band in 1978/9), which features the cream of the ex-members of Hawkwind and The Hawklords. Their live DVD of The Barney Bubbles Memorial Concert is now available. Details at http://www.reverbnation.com/hawklords - the band's successful European Tour kicked-off in Belgium on Sept 8th 2011 and wound-up in The 02 Academy in Islington, London, on October 29th. Steve also played quirky keyboards on The Hawklords' 2012
release We Are One before leaving the band.
