When I first started this blog I did a series called Miracle Mile Monday as the posts were all about one band and the series happened every monday (that is about as imaginative as I get)
I just couldn't understand how Trevor Jones and Marcus Cliffe's band didnt get the sales aand profile that their talent deserved. So in my niavety I thought if I featured a track a week then people would give them a go and discover a whole load of hidden gems... a kind of if you play it they will come idea, especially as they had mastered the rare trick of making each lp slightly better than the last.
I guess I was probably preaching to the converted but hopefully they picked up a couple more fans on the way.
Anyway after a 2 solo lp sabbatical, a new Miracle Mile lp is in the works, intrigingly the songs are inspired by a piece of fiction that Trevor has written
As part of the process Trevor has started a blog which can be found here where he is tempting us with the following
I'm hoping to add some early mixes, lost songs, video (we are currently having a short film made inspired by a new song 'Big Circus'.
There is a back story to the ideas behind 'In Cassidy's Care' that I can share, even a story that I've written (a chapter at a time) that inspired the album's songs...
It is early days but if you like good old fashioned quality songwriting , lyrics that are like the best short stories, good recommendations of stuff to read and listen to as well a fair few random thoughts then pay him a visit
If you wander what all the fuss is about then you can hear a selection of Miracle Mile songs at the band's website here
