Abel Ganz held a launch party/gig on March 27 in Glasgow, Scotland, to celebrate the long-awaited release of their latest album, Shooting Albatross. The album includes a guest appearance from Pallas vocalist Alan Reed, who handles vocals a 23' track called "So Far" and markes the debut of Abel Ganz' new singer, Stuart "Mick" McFarlane.
Hugh Carter says: "Mick joined us a couple of months ago and has slotted perfectly into the band. As well as being an incredible singer, Mick plays guitar, bass and keyboards thereby proving a useful addition to our increasingly more complex arrangements. I met him many years ago when we were both playing bass in bands on the folk/rock circuit and knowing he was a closet prog fan always thought he would make an ideal singer for Abel Ganz."
For those of you who couldn't make it to the launch party, the album will be available from their website www.abelganz.com which has recently been offline undergoing reconstruction.
