'Pillows': A Stingo Records Primer

News

As noted previously, Jack Telford (you can hear his track "Middle of Nowhere", made by his new band Green Hands with vocals by Kate Stapley on 'Hot Music Live Presents Volume Nine' and "Wasted Youth" by his previous group Rewards and Revenge on 'Volume Ten') is also part of Leamington's Stingo collective, which while it cuts across artistic media, has just released a showcase primer of some of the musical material they work with.

Named 'Pillows' (clearly a nod there to the hugely influential 1982 Cherry Red compilation 'Pillows & Prayers' which among other artists, proved a launch pad to the continuing success of Everything But the Girl and The Monochrome Set), you can access it via this link: https://stingo.bandcamp.com/album/pillows-a-stingo-compilation.

Featuring two Green Hands tracks ("I Found A Way" and "Standing in the Shadows") I also enjoyed songs by their close collaborator Patch Murphy and the hitherto unknown Jakls plus a brace of solo songs by Green Hands' guitarist James Knight.

Best of luck to Stingo and hopefully your enjoyment of songs on the primer will lead you to the artists' other work: which of course is the objective.
