      toshack highway – birdsong ep out friday

      This Friday sees Toshack HIghway teaming up with
      Oxford based label Shifty Disco to release a
      downloadable MP3 EP called Birdsong EP with two tracks
      being available for 99p this coming Friday 10th Feb
      and two more plus downloadable artwork for another 99p
      next Friday Feb 17th.
      Go to:

      The Shifty Disco Download Singles Club pumps out
      weekly releases each and every Friday throughout the
      year, a 12-month subscription comes in at only £12.

      The EP features four different versions of two songs
      to be featured on the latest Toshack HIghway album
      Bolts of Melody to be released later in the year.

      This Friday’s download is Birdsong (album version) and
      Theme From LSD (live version), the latter recorded
      with full band in Toronto on Nov 12th last year.

      The following Friday will be Birdsong (moonshiner
      version) a stripped down folk-sounding rendition and
      Theme From LSD (baroque version) a film score-like
      home studio interpretation.

      Says Adam Franklin, ex of Swervedriver and the main
      man behind Toshack: “It’s quite a cool thing doing a
      downloads only release because the whole thing has
      such a quick turnaraound.
      “Dave Newton Ride’s manager (who also runs Shifty
      Disco) heard the new Toshack Highway album and
      suggested putting a track up at Shifty Disco.
      “I said Why not, and when Dave said the track he
      wanted to use was Birdsong it reminded me that I had
      intended to record a slowed down solo version of that
      “Then the idea of expanding this to an EP release
      sprang up as we had these versions of Theme From LSD
      lying around as well.
      “But what makes it realy like a 45 release from the
      60s is that we’re still finishing off the ‘baroque
      version’ of LSD – Ley Taylor and his brother Mike up
      in Toronto are putting a few finishing touches to it,
      piano and stuff. So we’ll finish off the track and
      it’ll be released within the week.”
