The Purple Bottle

Saturday, January 28, 2006


One of my flavourite new discoveries of last year was the Marshmallow album, a record full of catchy pop melodies and witty, interesting lyrics. The man behind Marshmallow is ex-Mutton Birds and Bic Runga bassist Alan Gregg, who recorded the album mostly by himself with occaisional help from friends such as Ron Sexsmith, Dave Long and the aforementioned Ms Runga. An eleven track version was released by Lo-Max at the beginning of 2003 but was rereleased with two extra tracks (and a new cover) by Storm Records in 2005. Here's a link to the official website where you can listen to samples of the album, view the two excellent videos and order the CD - if you love classic pop, you won't be disappointed! The two tracks on the Anytime Soon CD single are also excellent and well worth having as they feature the full band lineup that played a blinding set at the Cornbury Festival this summer. I eargerly await the second album!

Here's a photo of Alan Gregg:

    Thanks for your interest, but I'm not into online gambling (or any other kind).
