CAPTAIN CARR

The star releases a mini solo-album under the name Brave Captain...

Boo Radleys former guitarist and songwriter MARTIN CARR is to become the latest ex-CREATION RECORDS star to strike out on his own with forthcoming solo mini-album ‘THE FINGERTIP SAINT SESSIONS VOL 1’ due for release through WICHITA RECORDINGS on August 17.

The six-track record, to be released under the name Brave Captain, marks Carr’s first new material since the Boo Radleys split in January 1999.

All tracks were recorded with Gorwel Owen in his studio in north Wales. Owen, a renowned multi-instrumentalist, produces both the Super Furry Animals and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, and is presently touring with Gorky’s as their keyboard player.

The mini-album provides a taster of what to expect from Carr when his full- length album ‘Go With Yourself’ is released in October. ‘The Fingertip Saint Sessions Vol 1’ also maintains links with former Creation cohorts. Witchita Recordings is a new label established by former Creation No. 2 Dick Green.

The full track listing for ‘The Fingertip Saint Sessions Vol 1’ is: ‘Raining Stones’, ‘Big Red Control Machine’, Starfish, ‘Third Unattended Bag On The Right’, ‘Tragic Story’, ‘Little Buddha’.
