LEGENDARY CANTERBURY BAND CARAVAN RELEASE FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN 8 YEARS

 

Caravan are one of the doyens of the progressive rock & the ‘Canterbury scene’. Formed in 1968, the band blended rock, jazz, folk & classical influences to create their warm & distinctive sound.

 

Their previous 14 studio albums & numerous live recordings have seen them attract a large & faithful following & the band have toured throughout Europe over the past 50 years.

 

‘It’s None Of Your Business’ is Caravan’s first album since ‘Paradise Filter’ (2013) & features nine new songs plus one instrumental track influenced, to a degree, by the events & restrictions placed on society over the past 18 months.

 

Founder member Pye Hastings (guitar/vocals) remains as Caravan’s guiding light & primary songwriter. Geoffrey Richardson (viola, mandolin, guitar) first played with Caravan between 1972 & 1981 & returned to the fold in 1995, Jan Schelhaas (keyboards) & Mark Walker (drums) complete the band with Lee Pomeroy (ELO, Rick Wakeman and Take That) guesting as bass player, while Jimmy Hastings also guests on flute.

 

The album was recorded, as restrictions allowed, ‘in the old-fashioned way’ between 24th June & 4th July 2021 at Rimshot Studio, Bredgar near Sittingbourne. “Sitting round in a circle having eye to eye contact, a large sound room was required,” Pye Hastings explained. “I much prefer this method because you can bounce ideas off each other as they occur, & voice encouragement when the whole thing begins to click. It is much more rewarding to be able to throw insults at each other in person rather than down a telephone line or via email. This is something we are all very experienced at, believe me!”

 

‘It’s None Of Your Business’ cover & artwork has been designed by renowned UK illustrator Bob Venables.

 

Caravan will tour the UK throughout October 2021.

 


The legends of the Canterbury scene band are also being celebrated in a lavish 37-disc box set, entitled ‘Who Do You Think We Are ?’.
