After releasing all three of Cherry Ghost’s albums, as well as the singular LP from Simon’s other project Out Cold, we asked Cherry Ghost to perform as part of our 25th birthday celebrations back in 2015. Now, five years later, we can all relive that special matinee performance, immortalised on wax.
‘Live at the Trades Club, Hebden Bridge’ sees Simon joined by Christian Madden and Grenville Harrop on keys and percussion for a stripped back, laid bare engagement with pure songsmith magic. Across two LPs, the trio cover much ground with classics like ‘4AM’, ‘People Help the People’, and ‘Mathematics’, as well as seldom heard B-sides and tracks from Simon’s other project Out Cold. Overall this collection makes a serious case for Aldred being massively underrated in the canon of classic songwriters. Released as part of Record Store Day, August 2020.
