The second coming of Paley’s Watch!

No Comments News

Our long term goal is to make as much of Plankton Record’s back catalogue available on all major digital music sites and platforms Worldwide. We’ve just taken another step towards this goal with 1994 “November” album (Cat No. PCDN 144) by PALEY’S WATCH now joining Plankton releases available on digital.

PALEY’S WATCH were a UK progressive rock trio, a coming together of three very different artists and creatives, who together created imaginative and intricate classical and acoustic infused original rock music.

The trio of members were accomplished UK guitarist (and long time Plankton artist) Marc Catley already had a number of releases to his name either under his own musical style which he described as ‘classical acoustic rock’ or as series of humorous and satirical songs and albums.  UK drummer, multi-instrumentalist and programmer Duncan Parsons was a drummer with the Non-Stop Random-Access Jazz-Band prior to joining the band and brought his musical wizardry along with his quirky sense of humour to the band. Hungarian born Marianne Velvart was a singer/songwriter, seasoned performer and published poet. All three band members contribute to the songwriting and all share vocal duties too. 

“November” is a progressive rock concept album set in the UK Northern mill town of Bury during the early 1980’s. It tells the story of the lives of six characters during the month of November

“Not only are we pleased to announce that November is at long last available digitally” reports Plankton Records partner Keith Dixon, “but Duncan and Marc are also working on an 8 track compilation of other Paley’s Watch tracks that they’ve brought together with the view of releasing in the very near future. The band is experience a new lease of life – a second coming! Watch this space for more details”.
