Chris Thompson 'Toys And Dishes' Album Preview
Esoteric Antenna is pleased to announce 'Toys And Dishes' by Chris Thompson, his first new album in over ten years, drawing on all the musical elements that make Chris' songs and voice so instantly recognisable. Known for his work as the vocalist and guitarist on many hits for Manfred Mann’s Earthband, as well as featuring on the classic Jeff Wayne concept album 'War Of The Worlds', Chris is also a noted songwriter penning among other songs the smash hit 'You're The Voice' for John Farnham.

Of his new album, Chris reflects... "I'm very proud of the result. The songs really mean a great deal to me, mostly inspired by my daily life, a couple of forays into the past and a story or two! Hopefully they're accessible to both my very loyal fans and to everybody struggling to find time and money to do what they really want to with the people they love".

SONTAAG 'Sontaag' Album Trailer
Sontaag's eponymous debut album has been described as "the rock opera that Pink Floyd never wrote", "a modern-day Tubular Bells", "a prog-rock War Of The Worlds", but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative ambience quite as neatly as "sonic cinema". Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth for Big Life Management, 'Sontaag' is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today's digital environment.

Arriving in a landscape where music, books and movies often co-exist on a single handheld device, 'Sontaag' represents a seamless fusion of the finest elements of all three.

Sontaag (the band) features Richard Sontaag (composition, instruments, concept, co-production), Ian Fortnam (story, lyrics, voice, concept) with Milo Venter (drums) and Amanda Cross (vocals).
