First al­bum in 41 years to be launched at Lon­don show.

Gryphon are rein­vent­ing them­selves on a new 11-track al­bum.

“It was a case of, bet­ter get on with it be­fore some­body dies!” says co-found­ing vo­cal­ist and in­stru­men­tal­ist Brian Gul­land, who’s joined by orig­i­nal mem­bers, gui­tarist Graeme Tay­lor and per­cus­sion­ist Dave Oberlé. ReIn­ven­tion sees the quirk­sters re­visit the books from which they took their name.

“Graeme has writ­ten an 11-minute mag­num opus. He’s set the White Knight’s song [Had­docks’ Eyes] from Alice Through The Look­ing Glass to mu­sic and it’s quite mag­nif­i­cent,” says Gul­land. “And one of our more re­cent re­cruits, [mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ist] Gra­ham Pres­kett, has come up with some mar­vel­lous pieces that are so Gry­phon­i­cal it’s as if he’s been with us ever since we founded the group!”

Gryphon will be launch­ing the al­bum at Lon­don’s Union Chapel on Septem­ber 14 with more shows an­nounced via their of­fi­cial web­site www.the­gryphon­ Now turn to page 101 for our re­view of ReIn­ven­tion.
