The Gardening Club Reviewed

A lovely review of THE GARDENING CLUB by fantasy author and educator Caitlin Sweet.

The Gardening Club bursts with passion and sorrow, quirk and groove, and proves that sometimes you can go home again. From the swirling suggestion of “Moon Mischief” to the ever-so-slightly off-kilter vibe of “Upside Down Blackbird”, this album is a moody, musical bit of time travel. Past and present meet here, in Springett’s voice and guitar, and in words about long-lost friends and the kind of yearning that never changes. Onward, to the future!” — Caitlin Sweet, author of The Pattern Scars, The Door in the Mountain and The Flame in the Maze among others

The Gardening Club Reviewed!

Check out this wonderfully thoughtful review of THE GARDENING CLUB project, which you can get your paws on here!
“The Gardening Club or What’s For Tea is a journey through a wonderful world of imagination. The images have a poetic quality wherein the reader is invited to interpret the story as it resonates with his or her own experiences. In wending one’s way through the pages of this boldly illustrated graphic novel one encounters delightfully whimsical musings rendered in colourful images and playful language. But there is also the deeper and perhaps darker mystery lurking just below the surface of things.
The Gardening Club’s Songs From the Potting Shed is a collections of 6 tunes each possessing a very distinct identity of its own; yet all are subtly connected through the accomplished authorship of Martin Springett. Springett’s work is like no one else’s. It seems with every composition he breaks new ground. The songs on this record are an excellent addition to his catalogue and, for the first time listener, the perfect introduction to an impressive body of work by a truly gifted singer/songwriter.”

THE GARDENING CLUB –PRESALE–…/the-gardening-club-presale

This is it friends! A lost prog rock gem, The Gardening Club has been revitalized with a new release: a deluxe repackaged version of the original LP (and by original we mean it, each package comes from a stash of the long lost 1983 stock), an EP filled with previously unreleased songs and a brand new companion graphic novel filled with Springett’s signature lush, oneiric imagery, wonderful wordplay and decidedly English brand of the fantastic.

Moreover, this exclusive presale also features an original drawing by Springett with each package. That means, you get the original LP (which sells for $75 and more in collector’s circles), a six song EP of unreleased tracks, a 48-page graphic novel, and original drawing all for $50. This is prog package for music and art lovers that can’t be missed!
