Groovy Uncle is the brainchild of Medway based songwriter Glenn Prangnell (The Offbeats, The Kravin A’s, Goodchilde). The project began around the dawning of the new millennium when Glenn found himself at a loose end, creatively. His previous band, Goodchilde had recently disbanded after five or so years of gigging and recording and while the other members were busy working with a number of projects, Glenn had an empty diary. Songwriting had always been his top priority so he carried on doing exactly that for the next few years until, in the mid Noughties, the world hit the My Space age and with this in mind he uploaded some of his home recordings of brand new songs to the site with no plan to record or release anything ‘properly’. But, a number of encouraging comments regarding the new material were gratefully received, and the rest is history.
Nine studio albums in, with countless contributors, Glenn continues to release the Groovy Uncle discography through his own record label, Trouserphonic Records. For some time, Spinout Nuggets have wanted to release 2017’s ‘Oil And Colour Man’ (from A Clip Round The Ear album) on a 7″, and it’s perfect timing now to pair it up with ‘Saturday Afternoon’ (first time on vinyl) from 2021’s ‘Searching For The Grown-Ups’ album.
‘Oil And Colour Man’ was recorded at Ranscombe Studios in 2017 and was included on the 6th Groovy Uncle album, ‘A Clip Round The Ear’, released later the same year. Special thanks to James Worse for the wonderfully bonkers narration. Produced by Jim Riley. ‘Saturday Afternoon’ was recorded by Glenn Prangnell at home during Lockdown in 2021, and was included on the 9th Groovy Uncle album, ‘Searching For The Grown-Ups’, released later the same year. Tom Morley recorded the trumpet parts remotely, which were added later. Produced by Glenn Prangnell. To date, Groovy Uncle has released nine albums and four singles. Most are still available from the websites www.groovy-uncle.co.uk and Bandcamp.com available on VINYL, CD and Download.
Limited to 100 hand-numbered, lathe-cut copies (A Russ Wilkins Empire Prime Cut). One copy per customer.
The forty-eighth release on the Spinout Nuggets label, this release will be available via www.spinoutproductions.com/shop/ and https://trouserphonicrecords.co.uk/trouserphonic-shop only.
