Album Notes
‘Year Zero’ (2002) consists of only one piece of ever changing music but has been subdivided in to several sections (for the benefit of those listeners who want to skip the bits they just don’t like or indeed to rearrange the various parts in to a different order which will, no doubt, not be conducive to the generally intended storyline of the aforesaid album!) and is indeed based on a loose concept, the concept of which is……Oh we’re not going to tell you so you’ll have to think of your own, use your imagination like you used to have to in the days before all those expensive, pretentious videos!!!!

Whilst remaining true for to their progressive roots for much of the album, there are a few ‘other’ influences creeping in such as hints of cool jazz plus a smattering of ‘modern’ beats and rhythms, continuing themes where parts of ‘Following Ghosts’ left off, plus a small slice of floating anarchy throughout the strawberry jam and whipped cream middle section.

As with previous albums Galahad have also continued the tradition of including several special guests on their albums. Year Zero features the various talents of Sarah Quilter on saxophone, flute, clarinet and backing vocals. John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia, UK) also makes an appearance on 'Belt Up' and Even Alex from ‘A Clockwork Orange’, has crawled out of the woodwork to make a brief but chaotic appearance.

With Year Zero Galahad have come up with an album which, in places, is very different from anything they have done before but still manages to maintain a few of the old Galahad trademarks such as melody, mellotrons a plenty, reasonably coherent words and a fair amount of heady self indulgence. A progression of sorts, we say. Do they care, do they hell!!

Go on, give it a whirl!
