Some Rising Records News

Alan Ibbotson - click for more infoProduction, mixing and mastering of Al’s latest album entitled ‘Alan Ibbotson At The End of The World’ is now complete and we have released the album, just in time for Christmas, you lucky people. It is a truly excellent exploration of Al’s personal experience from youth through to the loss of a parent and beyond, but it’s far from dark. A nice present for anyone needing a good chill and the odd chuckle?

Phil Jackson - click for more infoWe also have a new associate in our family. The prolific  international writer/composer Phil Jackson has released his personal album ‘Sea Full Of Dreams’. It is a self-produced album of 20 previously unpublished tracks. Poetic lyrics and haunting music. Clips from the album are available here. Phil is now based in Bulgaria and is a much published lyricist and contributor to many European artist’s portfolios. Check out his details and links here

 Pig'n'aif Headbanger - Click for more infoPig’n’aif’ have been delayed in the mixing of  their new albums due to being called upon to carry out urgent work on other band’s projects. However they have continued work in the background subject to time constraints and are no making a concerted effort to get them completed and released. The albums are ‘Electronicalis’ and ‘Musicalis Grumpiosa’. You can find out more track information, audio and video teasers and release information about the albums in the Releases section of this site

  Here’s a video teaser from the forthcoming Pig’n’aif album ‘Electronicalis’. Electronic sounds, and synth guitar blended with their usual analogue instruments to produce an album of electronic prog rock tracks. A one-off album in a different genre.









Phoenix on Fire - Click for more infoFor those interested in the classic NWOBHM band Phoenix Rising the album of their music is now in the final stages of post-production.

The album is called ‘After The Fire’,  The Music of Phoenix Rising. The recordings are based upon the album that was left on the tapes when the original line-up disbanded. 

After The Fire - click for more infoPete has taken the recordings, digitised Danny’s available contributions as a basis for the drum tracks and used session musicians (including long time collaborator Mick Shedd on vocals) to provide definitive versions of the material as originally envisioned, when he wrote the material. Hence, ‘The music of Phoenix Rising’.
There is more info on the band page and releases section of this site.

 Pig’n’aif had a number of tracks included on Factory Fast Records of NY releases which continue to pick up air and web plays in the USA, Uk and elsewhere.

 ‘My Amie’ is on ‘Dance With Destiny’, ’Oh Girl’ is included on ‘Hot Sweet and Blue’, ‘Dead Man Blues’ is on ‘Road To The Sun’ and ‘Cycles’ is  included on the ‘Curtains Against the Wind’ compilation. It goes without saying that the compilations are all worth checking out,.. 
not least because of Pig’n’aif’s involvement.

Sadly, it would appear that Factory Fast Records in now no longer in business, but we wish good luck to Brian and the guys in their future endeavours.
