Chalk Pit Rattle – Take Two

On October the 4th I played the Maze with We Shall Overcome….I then had other priorities to deal with for six months and now finally I picking up the pieces of Chalk Pit Rattle… will be available at this year’s Kimberley Jam on June 16th in retro cassette format with all proceeds going to the Ryan Lee Cancer Trust …

Trailer Star – Chalk Pit Rattle


Back in March I confidently decided I would produce a new album in a month..then it was two months..then it was by the Kimberely Jam which is this Saturday. I fully intended to also make some cassette versions and will still try BUT it looking like a tall order with three days to go. Like the previous post life has got in the way and not all of it good life….

However here the tracks I done as demos on soundcloud and we will see if can add a few before Kimberley.

It might be a Chalk Pit Rattle but it ain’t Trailer’s death rattle..not yet anyway.

Bulrush Festival 08


Bulrush Festival

As part of the annual Lady Bay Open Arts Festival, viagra the Thames Delta’s premier dead country and western legend hosts the inaugural Bulrush Festival, bringing a taste of flyblown Mississippi and a touch of Texas to the leafy Trent-side suburb. The alter ego of Nottingham artist Shaun Belcher, Trailerstar trades in the same brand of sparsely acoustic song-writing as The Handsome Family and Kurt Wagner, spinning tales of heartbreak and hard times, as heard on his latest album, Suit of Nettles. There’s more Americana from Blue Swan, but if it all sounds a bit downbeat, the exuberant ska of Dog is Dead, plus African drumming, comedy, an on-site barbecue and plenty of locals making their way from the open gardens and craft stalls in Lady Bay itself should give this upstart on the summer scene a flavour all its own.
