Much loved by drunks and sentimentalists, "The Auld Triangle" is a song no one ever has to hear ever again. So it seemed the perfect fit for Trembling Bells next single.
It tells the tale of an old lag pining in prison for his sweetheart Sal- the spell of his erotic reminiscences only broken by the constant jingle jangle of prison keys.
The Bells are joined here by a gaggle of their famous friends including guest vocalists Alasdair Roberts, Ricky Ross, Dan Haywood, Mike Heron, Scott Fagan and Amy Cutler. It's like Band Aid but without the bon homie. Or career-cementing charity scams.
Trembling Bells new album "Dungeness" will be released in autumn 2017.

There seem to be rich layers to this album. I've discovered a hidden layer... serving as my idiosyncratic companion to an evening watching the sun set over Kotor Bay in Montenegro... Alex and Lavinia's beautiful tones... accompanying the slow progress of the sunlight retreat across the hillsides.. and the gradual appearance of the moon over mount Lovcen. Perfect. stuarty18

Knowing nothing about him at all, I saw Alex Rex at the Moseley Folk Festival a few weeks ago. He was terrific, probably the act that I enjoyed most of all; terrific original songs delivered with verve, vim and elan (Yup, I'm not a robot). So I had to buy the albums. And I'll play them on (shameless plug) The Slightly Different Radio Show (Lewes Radio - so I won't be advancing anyone's career!). Anyway, he was great. And you can edit this. Nick Cooper

Nice pop balladry with a folk influence. My first thought upon hearing this was "female Paul McCartney" but it is probably aiming for Sandy Denny territory. Lavinia was in psychedelic folk band Trembling Bells. Art Fin
