Galahad news

Galahad have, once again, been in the studio with Karl Groom working
on a few songs which will be released as EP's/singles throughout the
next twelve months or so.

These 'new' recordings feature an eclectic mixture of new versions of
older songs, re-mixes and edits of existing songs plus an unusual
cover which will be released as a single in its own right sometime

More details regarding these releases will emerge in the coming weeks.

As many of you will know, our long time Bassist Neil Pepper sadly died
of Cancer of the Oesophagus two years ago this September.

He did, however, leave a compact but interesting musical legacy and
thus we have made available one of his tracks, 'Outerlife', for
download on our merchandise page at

'Outerlife' was recorded around 1997 and features Bruce Soord of The
Pineapple Thief on guest vocals. Unfortunately, only a cassette
version exists which we have converted to MP3 and the sound quality is
not too shabby.

All proceeds from the sale of this track (minimum a bargain
really) will go to Neil's family, his wife Jojo and their three young
children Rosie, Poppy and Finn plus, of course, you will also be
helping to keep his memory alive.

A limited number of books have been signed by the author Andrew Wild
as well as the band and are available now.

The book also comes with a very interesting archive DVD featuring
rare and previously unreleased live video footage of the band as far
back as 1986!

After much thought and scratching of heads we have decided to make
available two separate T-shirts for each of the last two albums.
Furthermore the images will be in the form of vinyl printed on to high
quality fruit of the loom T-shirts as this seems to be only way we can
capture the full vibrancy and detail of the artwork on a printed

provide skinny girly T-Shirts too if necessary! J

They are now available from the merchandise page on our website at at a very reasonable £12 each with a small
