Bowness talks solo track

Tim Bowness has released a commentary video on his solo track The Warm Up Man Forever, taken from upcoming solo album Abandoned Dancehall Dreams.

In the brief clip below he discusses the inspiration for the piece, also below, and the 1980s influences that led him to decide on an arrangement featuring King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelloto and long-time collaborator Michael Bearpark.

The album is released on June 23 via InsideOut Music – and Bowness will add more commentary videos to his Facebook page in the coming days.

He appears at the Borderline, London, on July 11 and the Wesley Centre, Maltby, on July 12, performing solo, Henry Fool and No-Man material.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
