The Battlefield Band Quotes
Neither of my parents play an instrument but there was always music in the house. My dad especially is a folk music fan and he had loads of records, including one by Battlefield Band – ‘Home is Where the Van Is’. So I would hear these and then when the extended family, who are mostly based on the mainland, got together I was exposed to real, live instruments.
We had a band on Lewis called Face the West and we recorded a CD, which we funded ourselves out of gig fees, and were looking for distribution. We sent a copy down to Robin Morton at Temple Records who also manages Battlefield Band. Robin wasn’t all that keen on the band but he wanted Keith Morrison, the piano player, and me to do something on our own.
