Avalon Records is proud to present an ‘unexpected’ new album by Galahad off shoot project the ‘Galahad Electric Company’. During these strange times in which we have found ourselves over the last few months it appears that Dean Baker and Stu Nicholson have tapped in to a rich vein of creativity resulting in a substantial collection of new music and songs. Therefore, the time seemed right to re-activate the ’Galahad Electric Company’ for the first time in over 20 years resulting in a new album ‘When the Battle is Over’.


Much of the material is in a more ‘electronic’ vein as you would expect from Dean who, after all, is the Galahad keyboard player, but there are also a few musical surprises in order to mix things up a bit. Also, due to more constraints than normal as far as the recording process was concerned a certain amount of experimentation was involved with some of the songs, a few of which were ad-libbed and written in an almost ‘stream of consciousness’ manner!


Stu remarked “This is the first album we have ever recorded whereby neither of us have actually been in the same room at the same time at any point! The actual main writing and recording process only took about five weeks in May and June which is very quick for us! In fact, it was a very easy, fun and quick album to write and record which should, in theory, always be the case but quite often isn’t.


“ The end result is an eclectic mixture of music and songs, examples of which are an adaptation of a poem by the famous 19th Century Dorset dialect poet and friend of Thomas Hardy, William Barnes (My Orcha’d in Linden Lea) and even Stu’s cat Sammy Gorgeous contributes ‘meows’ to ‘Mysterioso. There are also nods to dance, trip hop, folk, ambient, krautrock and even opera and gospel influences, all scattered throughout.
