COWARDS PATH

ENGLISH GHOSTS

"Cowards Path" is a lush, beautiful-sounding album of unforgettable songs about the darkest of subjects - isolation, addiction, despair. It's also astonishingly funny. Singer/songwriter Mishka Shubaly has plunged headlong into the gutter, mined his life experience as a bottom of-the-barrel drunk, and emerged with a devil-may-care grin. The songs weave so fluidly though tragedy and comedy that you'll find yourself wondering: should I be laughing? should I be crying? Either way, it's a singular listening experience and a triumph of the human will; that we can find humour even in the midnight darkness.

The Aries Project is a collective of London-based musicians led by Charles Kennedy. The band started as a live improvisational unit playing festivals in England in the summer of 1995, graduating to the studio at the end of that year to make debut album “English Ghosts”.  Originally surfaced in early 1996, the album found admirers in the British press and abroad, and became a post-club night out staple.

ABOUT IHM...

Invisible Hands Music is an independent record label best known for its releases in the years 2003-2010 when based in London's Camden Town neighbourhood. The label was founded by musician Charles Kennedy. The company name first appeared on cassettes sold at gigs by Kennedy's first band Night World in 1987. The first CD release was Fretwork Southeast, a compilation album of local bands from Southwest London in 1993. After three more CDs in the series, and an eponymous debut album by Kennedy's next musical project, The Aries Project, the label moved into signing artists starting with Wishbone Ash, and singer-

songwriter, Rob Reynolds. Other releases in the 1990s, distributed by Pinnacle in the UK, included electro compilations such as Speed Garage Invasion and Drum n Bass Invasion.

 

After a gap of five years, the label restarted operations in Camden Town in January 2003, releasing products such as a box set of new music by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, a box set of previously released music by Wishbone Ash, and a compilation of covers of David Bowie songs. Hazel O'Connor joined the label with a reissue series of her 1990s

 

albums. Recent releases included music by guitarist Stevie Salas, Silver Sun (two studio albums), Hugh Cornwell (two studio albums and a live set) and Thomas Dolby (live CD / DVD box set).

In 2008, Invisible Hands Music made the news by signing the (partially) reformed lineup of The Jam, and making the new Hugh Cornwell album, Hooverdam, available as a free download.

 

After a four year hiatus between 2010 and 2014, the label restarted operations in London's West End, rereleasing The Aries Project's eponymous album under the new title "English Ghosts".
