Song Of The Day 2011: Gavin Friday - Land On The Moon

In the midst of our feature on some really rad b-sides, I'll be sprinkling in some great stuff that has been released in 2011. Keep up on my daily postings by clicking LIKE over at the Life On This Planet Facebook Page.

A few months ago, Gavin Friday released catholic - his first solo album in 16 years. The former leader of Ireland's radical, post-punk innovators The Virgin Prunes, Gavin Friday has created an incredibly diverse body of work. Recent years have seen him working on movie scores, theatre productions and a few roles on the big screen. Catholic contains 11 original pieces and is produced by Ken Thomas, who has worked with everybody from Cocteau Twins to Sigur Ros to Throbbing Gristle. Thomas's daughter, Amy Odell, provides the beautiful backing vocals on today's featured song. Please give Land On The Moon a listen - it gave me chills the very first time.
