Reggae lovers are being called upon to unite around a campaign to support the release of a new album from popular local exponents of the Rasta groove, The Strides.
“We are in the final week of the campaign, and basically we are asking people to support the project before it’s finished.” said Nick Garbett, Otford local and trumpet player for the Strides, “We’ve got all the music recorded, so I think there’s around 12 tracks – we’ve released to and we got another 10 to finish, which is basically mixing, mastering, pressing and artwork. If you support the project and then you get a copy of the album when it’s finished, plus whole range of other benefits depending upon the amount contributed.”
The countdown is on! Only 7 days to go on the pozible campaign for the new album from The Strides.
Nick will also be playing at Clifton School of Arts on Sunday 17th November with one of his other band called The Vampires.
“We’re promoting the release of our fourth album called Tiro which is on the tail end of a national tour. We chose that venue because it suits the band as an acoustic quartet – the smaller, intimate space suits us better.”
Nick’s other band (!!) is called Garfish, which includes fellow Strides member Matt Smith from Stanwell Park, and they will be appearing at the Bombie Bar at Coalcliff on Sunday 8th December.
