William Arthur Sergeant, guitarist from the band Echo and the Bunnymen has released a new instrumental album called Things Inside. The T-shirts, featuring a screen print of London Beefeaters and police men, are designed to promote the new album.
Will Sergrant says, regarding the album:
“With this project I set myself a challenge to make an album using only acoustic instruments. This was a new area for me as I have tended to concentrate on electric instruments, mainly guitars of course. I have always sought to expand the possibilities of guitar sound and neglected the acoustic world. I gathered together all the acoustic instruments I could get my hands on. I went into FTC Studios in Liverpool and set about creating something unique. I even got my old mate Les Pattinson to help on a few tracks with his trusty acoustic bass guitar. This album is the result of those improvised experiments into the acoustic world. The finished record is quite hard to pigeon hole but has elements of psychedelia, folk, progressive rock, ambient and soundtrack. All engulfed in my style and sound. I find it hard to explain how or why so best not delve too much into this area. It just is.”
