Ok, so i haven't done anything new for a while, but i want to play some music for you guys, so, here it is the long awaited reissue of my first collection of music LANDLOCKED, The first song is God, please lets end this this way.

I am going to upload the tracks in tracklisting order. For those of you who are familiar with the other songs i have uploaded her, you will notice the difference, LANDLOCKED was very heavily recorded using midi, and lots of it, some of these productions had 40-odd tracks of music and vocals. LANDLOCKED was finished in 2004, love to hear what you think of it:

LANDLOCKED.
1. God, please let's end this this way.
2. The coach trip.
3. I know it's taken some time.
4. Shining.
5. Silver mountains
6. The screen test.
7. The village people.
8. Once again i fail to take my own advice.
9. Rabbits
10. I'm in love with everything that she does.

Great Central is Gavin Wright, currently residing in Oslo, Norway. Formally a member of a couple of bands in London gigging for six years. Now producing music independently and infrequently Gavin has almost entirely given over to electronic Pop retaining only his accoustic guitar and occasionally piano. Heavily influenced by 60s & 70s West Coast American Pop and Brian Wilson chords and harmonies. Gavin is also part of the new feel-good easy listening pop band Kites Are Fun.

See the links below, and click to hear more.

Thanks for making 5 OR SO YEARS number 9 on the underground top 40!!!!




God, please let's end this this way
big spectoresque drums, piano, acoustic guitar, organ, oboes, double tracked vox and nice harmonies



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

The Coach Trip
an acoustic ballad, dramatic chords and heartbreaking vocals



English acoustic songwriting
h h

I know it's taken some time
track 3 of the landlocked album - looping piano, dirty organ, a shift through some big chords and a super-catchy chorus... and finished of with a sweet sweet runout



psychedelic pop
h h

shining
from the dynamic opening piano and vibes thru to the final expansive vocals and plaintive acoustic guitar line, this is a classic example of 21st century sunshine pop - big chords and bigger harmonies, and a chorus you won't forget.



psychedelic pop
h h

silver mountains
track number 3 of the legendary 'lost' album from great central a baroque ballad with a sweet melody and lyric



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Grace
a sweet ballad, mainly acoustic, featuring some of the richest deepest harmonies i've ever arranged



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Madelaine
a dreamy hot summer ballad, with lazy warm boy/girl vocals, featuring chiming vintage Gibsons and a sparkling middle-8



mellow pop
h h

Mosaic Boy
Just a tiny little song, about fragmented people - delicate souls, with intricate thoughts and mood swings... acoustic guitar, organs and some fuzzy stuff



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

FIVE OR SO YEARS
gentle catchy Pop acoustic/synth mix



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h
