Artefact

RELEASE DATE - August 27th 2021
TITLE - Revolution
ARTIST - Michael James Pollard and Sioux Goddard

Originally from Derby, musician and photographer Michael moved to Manchester in his late teens to be amongst some of his favourite groups. After recording a Radio 1 session for John Peel he began writing and recording with Sioux Goddard and they came into contact with Lindsay Reade at Factory Records who helped get them an album deal with Fundação Atlântica. Over a two week period in 1984 they recorded eight tracks at Revolution studios in Cheadle. The album, however, was never released as the label hit financial difficulties and closed soon after. In 2020 a demo tape of Michael's from 1981 was found in a charity shop in London and so began the unearthing of the lost recordings. Michael was introduced to German Shepherd in 2020 by DIslocation Dance frontman Ian Runacres with a view to getting this long lost album released.
