One thing White Vinyl Collective cannot be accused of is being fame hungry.

The publicity shy group of musicians, who are apprehensive about showing their faces, launch their debut album this week.

The band is a collective in the true sense of the word with Christopher Jackson, Stevie Black and Alan Hotchkies writing the tracks with a host of Falkirk musicians lending their talents.

‘Primrose Heights’ is an eclectic album combing the soulful vocals of Craig Burke, rapping from Leo Mayweather, harmonica playing from Dan Adam and sugar sweet harmonies from Janiece Yvonne Boyd and Davey Bateman.

Christopher, from Falkirk and formerly guitarist in the Ray Summers, said: “We got in some terrific singers and players and it’s their talent that has made the album what it is.

“There are just so many people involved, Steve ‘The Moon’ McRorie sings on a few tracks with Dee Miller and my former Ray Summers bandmates Billy Kay and Davey Horne jump in on a few tracks.

“Robert Henderson, who usually works with Aidan Moffat and Bill Wells, plays trumpet on some tracks and then we’ve added synth and guitar parts in too - the album is a real group effort.

“I think it’s hard to describe the sound, with so many people lending their voices and talents, it’s a creative melting pot.”

‘Primrose Heights’, named in honour of Larry Primrose who helped to produce it from his penthouse flat in Glasgow, is available now from iTunes and all good digital music retailers.
