Hey! Check it! THE GARDENING CLUB is featured on The Fantasy Book Review!
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

“…an eccentric ‘s eccentric…” — Guy Gavriel Kay (The Fionavar Tapestry, Children of Earth and Sky, and many more) on Martin Springett’s art and music! Fitting!
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!
Packages will ship in late May!
