Blitzed Magazine Issue 3

Museum Of Tomorrow has a full page review and very enthusiastic feature in the new edition of Blitzed Magazine, this is doubly impressive as it is now 9 months since release and that is well outside the normal window of interest form the music press. Giant thanks to the team at Blitzed for their support. You can get a copy here, and the album is here (but can also be ordered in any record shop in The UK US and Canada)


It is nice when people 'really get' what you do, and that final paragraph is extra cool having been largely ignored for over thirty years... 

Thanks to Blitzed!

Second Scene Magazine Issue 11

Pittsburgh PA based Second Scene Magazine has its eleventh print edition out now, and along with a lot of interesting pieces there is an in depth double page feature interview with John A. There is a digital version which you can pick up here or you can order the print edition here

We also get a mention on the front cover which is nice. Giant thanks to Indy Cindy for the interview and to Second Scene for putting it into print. The magazine is stocked in record shops around the world but - as with everything else creative - buying direct is best. The link to the print edition above is with Psychdaisies Records which is an offshoot of Second Scene itself so you'd be buying it from the same entity.

It is fabulous that six months on from the Museum Of Tomorrow album campaign it is still getting press attention and masses of radio airplay.

Thanks to Gerry Ranson for the write up and for Vive Le Rock! for taking an interest in independent music, and not just pushing the corporate feed.

Record Collector Review of Museum Of Tomorrow

So far there have been 84 reviews/features on Museum Of Tomorrow in printed press and the web, far too many to keep unto date with here: the website does that much better, but the Record Collector one s worth making a fuss about, and it is here:

and this is the Easy Read version:

We're pretty damn pleased with that.
The Reviews & Press page on the website is the best place to see the response Museum Of Tomorrow has received - here: https://thespeedofsounduk.com/reviews-press

Vive Le Rock review of Museum Of Tomorrow

 Huge thank to Vive Le Rock magazine for reviewing Museum Of Tomorrow in issue 85, very nice:

Bright and poppy future shocks.
8/10
Some very interesting and rather charming stuff here from Manchester’s The Speed Of Sound, who present a future shock with the science-fiction-drenched ‘Museum Of Tomorrow’, presented as two galleries ss opposed to two sides of vinyl, each tune representing a conceptual image. Musically this is a mixed bag from sunny and bright New-Wave styled pop to jangly indie in the style of 90’s bands such as Salad, all the way through to punky cuts thst have long shadows of Blondie trailing after them. There is even a 60s aesthetic at work on the spacey ‘Wired And Tired’. The duelling vocals of Ann-Marie Crowley and guitarist John Armstrong work a treat especially on tunes like ‘Opium Eyes’, while instrumentation remains at a high technical level as The Speed Of Sound launch themselves through various stratospheres. Unique and otherworldly.”
