Rob Reed’s reinvention of his pre-Magenta band Cyan, features Reed alongside Pete Jones (Tiger Moth Tales / Camel), Luke Machin (The Tangent), and bassist Dan Nelson (Magenta / Godsticks).
A beautifully re-recorded version of Cyan’s 1993 debut For King And Country on double 140g blue vinyl.
Reed says. "I remember the original Cyan, back in the 80s, made up of school mates, pooling our money, £35 to record them at a local 4 track studio with basic equipment. It’s been amazing to finally hear the songs at their full potential, with modern recording techniques and an amazing line up of players. I’d held off releasing this album because I couldn’t find a vocalist to do it justice. Meeting Pete ticked that box as soon as I heard him sing the first track. His voice just blends so well with Angharad Brinn, who I’d worked with on my Sanctuary solo albums. Having Luke play the guitar parts was just the icing on the cake. He is such a great player, with technique and feel. What a line up!”
"I had known about the reworking of For King And Country for a while, so it was a great thrill to be asked by Rob to work with him on the project, alongside the other amazing musicians such as Luke, Dan and Angharad," adds Jones. "The songs are fantastic. They have a youthful and yet vintage quality to them, as well they might, given that they were first recorded in the early 90s. But with the benefit of Rob's experience, they have been reworked into an album which I feel is right up there with the classics."
