Hull band, The Gold Needles are delighted to have contributed 2 tracks to a new album, 'JEM Records Celebrates John Lennon'.
Recorded during the early days of Summer 2020, JEM Records artists took to the studio to record their unique interpretations of John Lennon's compositions. From the early Beatles days of 'I Call Your Name' to the final recordings of '(Just Like) Starting Over' this record is the
culmination of decades of love of Beatles and Lennon songs. The cover is a reproduction of Al Hirschfeld's 'Lennon at Home'. Sleeve notes have been provided by Beatles expert, Ken Womack.
The Gold Needles are the only U.K. band to appear on the album and are proud to represent Kingston Upon Hull. Their 2 tracks are 'No Reply' and a mash up of 'Hey Bulldog' / 'Cold Turkey'
The album is being released on 9th October 2020 which would have been John's 80th Birthday.

Is it real, or is it a dream?
Dreamscape combines the fascinating surreal art montage film by G E Saunt with a live soundtrack by the band.
Loudhailer Electric Company guitarist Richard Duffy-Howard explained: “The artworks of G E Saunt could almost be photographic, but they are paintings. Familiar yet strange they incorporate the historic and the contemporary, the real and the surreal. Our music tells a story to accompany the images. Imagine you’ve been away, you come back to Hull, step off the train and look around. Everything is slightly different than you remember it. Surely the City Hall isn’t opposite the station? Has that shark escaped from The Deep? And was that Elvis walking past the Tower? Is it a dream, or is it real?”

Original psychedelic sounds featuring members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson.
Meet the Band
Loudhailer Electric Company are a new band with a big history in the post punk psychedelic and original Indie scene, featuring ex members of seminal bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson. The band are making waves with their new release NEXUS, their third collection of songs, preceded by studio albums Cursus and Morpheus.
Loudhailer Electric Company songwriter and vocalist Lou Duffy-Howard had Indie chart topping success with influential indie band Red Guitars, best known for No. 1 single Good Technology and Independent album Slow to Fade, before releasing two albums on Virgin Records.
Guitarist Jeff Parsons pioneered gritty post punk psychedelia with trend setters Dead Fingers Talk whose album – Storm the Reality Studios – was produced by the great Hull born Spiders from Mars guitarist, Mick Ronson for Pye Records.
The line-up is completed by spoken word poetry wordsmith Richard Duffy-Howard and drummer Rich Walker.
G E Saunt is a prolific painter and visual entertainer, having produced hundreds of paintings using digital technology. Gary explains: “Much of my work takes the form of a cultural pilgrimage from Beverley to Hull with a vivid and compelling ‘dreamscape’ that incorporates the familiar and the strange, the historic and the contemporary, the real and the surreal. Perhaps we could try re-attaching ancient myths to our daily lives. Perhaps our eyes should choose more – linger on symbolism more than be fed rolling news. Perhaps we already live in waking dreamscapes – but not our own.”

We’ll be playing some favourite tracks from our back catalogue too, so come and join us on the 21st, we’re ready to have a party!”
