Bullitt is comin’ to get ya!

It was TBCs’ first ever track, created in a damp, cold basement in playwright Jim Allen’s old house in Middleton, Manchester. Although only a rough demo remained of it after it was shelved, I decided to resurrect the track this past autumn and breath new life into it.

Artwork for the radio edit of Fountains

Was out in Alexandra Park, Oldham, UK on Sunday and snapped this on my phone. I’m working on a radio edit of the single and thought this is a more striking image for the artwork.  While you’re here why not have a listen to “Fountains” on Spotify?

Back to Bullitt

One of the first songs to emerge from our damp basement in Jim Allen’s old house in Middleton and inspired by 1968 movie thriller of the same name, I’ve decided to bring this TBC classic back into the sunlight where it belongs.
