    News: Dean Baker - Constellations - 5th November 2018
    Progressive Rock Avalon Records in conjunction with Oskar Productions is very pleased and proud to announce the release of ‘Constellations’ the first ever solo album from Dean Baker who also happens to be the main writer and arranger for the established UK ‘Prog’ band Galahad.

    You could say that ‘Constellations’ is an accidental album borne out of personal tragedy. Dean’s good friend Ray succumbed to Cancer in 2018 and Dean subsequently inherited a rather large CD collection and began listening to some of the gems contained within what was, in fact, more of a music library, including albums by iconic keyboard visionaries such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream to name but a few.

    News: THE WILDHEARTS 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF EARTH VERSUS THE WILDHEARTS
    General GET TICKETS HERE

    Twenty five years in and the Wildhearts are ready for more - originally formed in late 1989 in the depths of Newcastle, the group are returning to the big stage to perform their debut album, Earth vs the Wildhearts, in it’s entirety. A testament to their celebrated authenticity, 99% of the album is an amalgamation of original demos, which were aptly recorded on second hand tape, and is characterised by the band’s distinctive fusion of hard rock, perfectly complimented by contemporary melodies.

    Having released two EP’s, the Wildhearts prepared to record their 1993 studio album Earth vs the Wildhearts. The album included underground hits, ‘Greetings from Shitsville’, ‘TV Tan’, and favourite, ‘Caffeine Bomb’. An undisputed iconic debut, Classic Rock recently ranked Earth vs the Wildhearts as the 5th best debut rock album of all time, surpassing the likes of Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.
