If you go to the beeb site and check back through Gideon Coe’s last couple of shows you’ll hear a lovely mention about ‘May Your Heart be The Map’ as part of ‘Reissue Corner’ on 6 music also ‘The Stars In Spring’ got a play last night.
So big heartfelt thanks to Mr Coe!
Also of note are the July Skies plays, which you should all know are another band we love, seeing as Ben & Rob of epic45 play in the live line-up. So a great show all round.
‘May Your Heart Be The Map’ is still available to purcahse here and here

Ben and Rob from epic45 last year donned their producer hats to work with Birmingham’s kings of synth post-rock, Avrocar, on a mini-album called Summer Blonde. The album’s eight songs are improvised sketches, referencing the psychedelic side of Krautrock, harmonious 60s pop and lethargic post-punk. Avrocar member Antony Harding, better known as the leading light in July Skies, has collaborated with Ben and Rob on many occasions over the years, most recently on the track Ghosts I Have Known, on epic45’s Weathering album. Via the links below you can stream samples of the tracks on Summer Blonde from the Orre Records Soundcloud page and buy the absolutely beautifully-packaged 12″ vinyl.
