Iain Hornal: Free Entry London Album Launch

#1,229: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! This coming Thursday 2nd February is the day and date when Iain Hornal - erstwhile touring member of Jeff Lynne's ELO and 10cc - will be launching - and hopefully naming - his much anticipated debut album at The Bedford in Balham, London SW12.

Doors open at 7:30PM for the FREE ENTRY event with Iain preceded by Ruth Theodore at 8:30PM and No Coward Soul at 9PM. Iain's fine band Hornal (who also feature Sinead Quinn, Jo Webb, Tim Bye, Kit Mlynar, Owen Parker, Dave Marks, Owen Roberts and Anna Krantz) will be on stage at 10PM. There will also be a live wWebcast of the event via this link thus:
The forthcoming album from Iain Hornal includes contributions from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dan Gillespie-Sells and Ciaran Jeremiah (The Feeling), Graham Gouldman and Kevin Godley (10cc).

It goes without saying that another elobf album review is on the way soon - especially apt when considering that Iain's album launch party just happens to be on the eighth anniversary of the launch of elobeatlesforever (elobf) back on Groundhog Day 2009! Judging by the songs aired by Iain during his support set for The Feeling last year, the new album promises to be one of the highlights of 2017. This review of their Wolverhampton date last October by elobeatlesforever (elobf) sets the scene:
