Music Submission, The Legendary Ten Seconds

Artist or Band Name: 
The Legendary Ten Seconds

The Legendary Ten Seconds, August 2019

The Legendary Ten Seconds started off as the solo music project of Ian Churchward during the time when he was the lead guitar player of The Morrisons who were featured on John Peel's radio one show back in 1987. In 2013 Lord Zarquon joined Ian's music project and since then the line up has gradually expanded and various guest musician's and vocalists have helped out in the recording studio.

Most notably The Legendary Ten Seconds have recorded many critically acclaimed English folk rock albums which chronicle the Wars of the Roses and the life and times of Richard III in England during the late fifteenth century. The albums are available on Amazon and itunes and the band have donated money to a scoliosis charity from some of the income generated from the sale of their music. The CD versions of the albums are available via the Richard III Society in the UK.

In 2018 the band recorded the Mer de Mort album which was commissioned by the Mortimer History Society to commemorate the Society's tenth anniversary. It is a historically accurate album of songs which chronicles the story of the significantly important Mortimer medieval family from their roots in Normandy prior to the battle of Hastings and into the 15th century.

The band have performed several concerts for the Richard III Society including one for the USA branch in Denver last year. Ian Churchward has also published a book about the music of The Legendary Ten Seconds which is called Songs About Richard III and is available from Amazon.

Music Submission, Two Hats Blues Band

Artist or Band Name: 
Two Hats Blues Band

The concept of the Two Hats Blues Band came to Rambling Rob in a vision.

Lying in that hospital in Rovaniemi, he had seen it all - a blues band like no other; 

combining slide fingerpicking guitar mastery with porch stomping foot 

percussion, wailing blues harp and thumping double bass. 

Three of them, howling in harmony, swirling echoes of country, bluegrass, gospel 

and R & B, creating an evocative vocal sound all of their own. 

Using old, primitive tools from an era before electricity took hold, channeling

everything that came from the blues, back into the blues. 

From the Mississippi to the Irwell, strange currents and tides flow through these 

songs. Feelings of euphoria and desolation, soaking and reviving dusty old ideas, 

making them shimmer in the sunshine stolen from other lands, other times.
