about

Recorded live at St James' Concert Hall in Guernsey on the night of Friday 31st of January 2020 - in the hour before the UK officially left the EU.

For a bit of context: Guernsey is in the Channel Islands, it's a crown dependency of Great Britain but isn't a member of the EU. It has low tax rates on businesses and is a financial hub for a lot of the world's off shore money. At the moment, it enjoys it's close relationship with London to 'passport' transactions in and out of the EU - if this deal looks at all sour to the banks, they will simply realign with an EU member state (France, Germany, Luxembourg etc) and carry on without the UK.

Gibratlar - as mentioned in Track 2 - is a crowd dependency of Great Britain that has a land border with Spain. It has a population of 34,000 people who in 2000 voted 100% to stay solely under UK governance and in 2016 voted 98% to stay in the EU.

Grant Sharkey is a modern day troubadour, releasing an album every 6 months over a period of 20 years and traveling all over to perform without compromise. He's played at Glastonbury Festival, IOW Festval, Edinburgh Festival Fringe (awarded four stars by Three Weeks for his debut show, Trollbadour) and has supported Electric 6, The Lounge Kittens, Skindred, The Wurzels, MC Devvo, Beans On Toast, Nizlopi and K*nt and the Gang.
