New Micky Charity Collection
« on: January 08, 2022, 05:12:29 PM »
Hi y'all

I've finally finished 'The Adventures Of The Celia Gang' and the download version is available on Bandcamp here: https://nicknation.bandcamp.com/album/the-adventures-of-the-celia-gang Proceeds will again go to the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Micky Jones. You can listen to the whole thing for free and/or make a donation for a download. WAV/FLAC available.

Alternatively you can listen to 'Cruising With The Celia Gang' from the album on Soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/nick-nationuser210153271/cruising-with-the-celia-gang?fbclid=IwAR3nh7hTSyMddY9wOR31UeC8EnXMz5OGZ9eMFlSVu_0NkLVjoav8N98OUN4   

I'm also considering having a limited edition CD pressed - if you would prefer a CD, let me know so I can get an idea of numbers.

Found the download was quite straight forward. One of my  favourites is "Listening To Man" as that is something we spend a lot of time doing!

Indeed, a straightforward download, and a very rewarding new collection of loony-tunes from the fingers, thumbs, toes and probably the elliptical nose of Mr Nation and the Celia Gang. I have a sneaking admiration for Owed To Joy, and the matinee-jazz groove to Cruising With The Celia Gang is also a thing of wonder. Production is surgically clean, with Lange-like miniscule gaps between the tracks giving you little room to breathe. The track titles, e.g. Car Boot Sale - Red Octopus Peg Thingy Hanger and Green Legged Duck tell you everything you need to know.

Get it. You'll enjoy it, and even if you don't you can bask in the warm glow of knowing your money's going to a worthy cause.
Boldly going.......

Thanks to those who have downloaded 'The Celia Gang' so far. It's on Bandcamp and you can listen for free up to 3 times (I think) and maybe make a donation here: https://nicknation.bandcamp.com/album/the-adventures-of-the-celia-gang

It's not another Man mash-up like my previous 2 efforts, but 23 songs about things that happen to us at our age...however this does include  'Listening To Man', which is based on the embryonic version of 'C'Mon' as played at least once on the German tour before 'BGTY' was recorded. It's here: https://soundcloud.com/nick-nationuser210153271/listening-to-man

Still taking numbers for a potential limited edition CD version...

Galvanised, I have updated my website for the first time in yonks. You can find it here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/ or select the globe under my name on the left.

Amongst the amendments are details of the new Celia Gang Micky Charity album here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/CeliaGang.html plus expanded and revised links to my local history website articles, plus bits and bobs.

For goodness sake, what did your mother tell you about bathing in molten zinc?

'Celia Gang' now also available as a limited edition CD, first come first served.

You can find out about it (and gaze at my newly added Norwich Band Family Trees from the 80s) here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/Index.html

Proceeds from 'The Celia Gang' download and CD have now passed 200. Thanks to all those who have donated so far. The CD is running out, so if you want one - or a digi download - now's a good time.

For more info, see the dedicated page on my website http://www.nicknation.co.uk/CeliaGang.html

Good news, 'Celia Gang' has now raised over 300 for the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Micky.

Only a few CDs left, first come first served, or a Digital Download option available here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/CeliaGang.html

Bandcamp are waiving their admittedly reasonable 15% fee on Friday 4 March (Download only) so that would be a good time...

Apart from the few I have put to one side for people, the 'Celia Gang' CD has now sold out! Over 450 raised now. The Digital Download version is available from Bandcamp which can be reached via the dedicated page on my site here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/CeliaGang.html

I will keep it going to the end of April to allow for more downloads and to allow for those yet to pick up their already requested CD.

I may consider another run of CDs if there's enough demand - let me know.

I did intend to stop the 'Celia Gang' download at the end of April, but I'm still getting donations so will keep it going for a bit!
