A couple of years ago CW and band visited Lewis Durham’s (of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis) home studio in Kentish Town, London to cut a couple of tracks, one for a Mojo magazine Beatles covermount.
Those recordings are now finally available to own on lovely 7″ and 78 RPM 10″ on Lewis’ own Evangelist Records. You can purchase your copy direct from the source HERE , and avoid those over-inflated prices that we’ve spotted on Ebay.

Despite advertisements to the contrary, and due to unavoidable circumstances, we regret to announce that CW Stoneking will NOT be performing at Pickathon Festival, Oregon or Green Man Festival, Wales this coming August. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause.
Between spells recording the follow-up to Jungle Blues, CW and band will be making just a handful of public appearance this summer. The live page is where you need to go for info, and be sure to stay tuned for more news…

“If you want your mind lifting out of its usual ruts, then C.W.’s the man for you. It’s mad, but lovably mad.”
“gonna scare all the chickens out of the yard with this electric guitar”
