Lee Memorial - Long Days In Bed

Karl Smith, half of the ex-Rough Trade signings, Sodastream has a new outfit called Lee Memorial. Sodastream released 4 albums, 5 EPs and a live recording between 1999 and 2006. They toured Europe 7 times, as well as the US and Japan and cult Radio 1 DJ, John Peel once described them as "quite wonderful."

Smith wanted to try something different to Sodastream with his latest project and the desire was to present his new songs with a full band. Recruiting Laura MacFarlane, one time drummer with Sleater-Kinney and founder of Melbourne outfit Ninety Nine, Tom Lyngcoln from Nation Blue (lead guitar), Madeline Spawton who has no ragged pedigree plays clarinet and cello, and Matt Bailey (ex-Paradise Motel) plays bass.

The chemistry of this line-up was demonstrated in the studio where Lee Memorial managed to record eleven of the tracks form the forthcoming debut album, "The Lives Of Lee Memorial," in just four days. "The Lives Of Lee Memorial," will be out this summer but get a sneak peek with a free download of "Long Days In Bed."
