Aural Delights Special – Trojan Horse

It’s nice when a band that comes from just round the corner from you puts out a good album, that they then come up with a second album that manages to exceed the quality of the first one is even more pleasing.

I refer to Trojan Horse who emerged clad in plaid shirts and more beard growth than you can shake a stick at from the leafy end of the peoples republic of Eccles some five years ago. Their first album of what was loosely called “prog nouveau” proved to be a regular airplay on the old radio shows and I was involved in part with the launch of their Fire EP a few years back,

The new album “World Turned Upside Down” is a massive piece of work of stunning quality and I’ve interviewed Nick from the band on the Studeo Blog about the release.

To celebrate the launch here is a special podcast focusing on the band – featuring three tracks from the new album, selections from their previous releases, a pair of favourite tracks from each member of the band and a few of my own selections which I thought would fit in with the overall feel of the band.

If you’ve not heard them before and you enjoy experimental rock music with a strong melodic element then I recommend you check them out.
