Reviews for The Chronicles of Modern Life (CD/Download)

BBC Radio 2

"It really is a fabulous album...gorgeous" Janice Long, BBC Radio 2, 10-10-09 “...It's just great, it's great songs on it - JohnnieWalker, BBC Radio 2, 18-09-09. “It’s absolutely brilliant.....he’s found his voice!” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 30-12-09 “Don’t...


“.... he is a fine songwriter with an acerbic wit when it comes to his take on relationships, work, life and how some of us are getting slightly older but not quite ready for it yet....this all adds up to make “Chronicles....” a very good album indeed. What helps make...


“Henry Priestman’s songwriting skills have been honed through work with cult acts and chart-toppers, and his wry observations have been finely tuned into the kind of songs it’s near impossible not to like." ****

#FromTheArchive One of the "finds" of lockdown has been this brown envelope (marked "for approval"), bottom of a cupboard, containing sheet music for EVERY song off our first two The Christians albums.
I do have the published music for Born Again/Ideal World/Words and even album #3 (Happy in Hell), but I have no recollection of these others songs going to print....perhaps the project was abandoned?
Still, a wonderful discovery...(can't read a note, mind 🙂 )

Last night, me and Les Glover's first public live 'gig' since February, and it felt so good!
Thanks to all who attended via ZOOM: some watched using "Gallery View" others chose "Speaker View"...I went for Gallery, just for the interaction, and to witness people enjoying a gig again...
Yes, I think we'll do more. x

So looking forward to our Zoom "gig" tomorrow night.
Les Glover and I have done a few private Zoom "housegigs" these last few months, but this is the first public one we're done together since February.
Shhhh, not a word, but we've actually even done a bit of a rehearsal/soundcheck, checking out it all works...big thanks to tech guru Simon Wareham for guiding 2 dim luddites through the process, (he seems happy).
It's "sold out", but if it goes well we'll probably do more.
