‘Swansea To Hornsey’ was recorded at Ray Davies’ Konk Studios in London’s Muswell Hill (the ‘Hornsey’ of the title) and produced by Trampolene singer/guitarist Jack Jones & engineer Josh Green and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Jamie T / Everything Everything). The album includes the singles ‘Alcohol Kiss’ (New Mix), ’The Gangway’ (New Extended Mix), ‘You Do Nothing For Me’ (New Mix), ‘Imagine Something Yesterday’ (New Version) and recent single ‘Beautiful Pain.’

Along with live stalwart ‘Storm Heaven’ and spoken word favourites ‘Ketamine,’ ‘Pound Land’ and ‘Artwork of Youth’.  Dr John Cooper Clarke described Jack Jones’ spoken word pieces as “Exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time and how often can you say that?”

Trampolene (yes we know the bouncy thing in everyone’s garden is spelled with an ‘i’!) were formed in 2014 in the green, green grass of Swansea, South Wales, by handsome local enigma Jack Jones, the self styled ‘dole-queue Dylan Thomas’, who met drummer Wayne and bassist Rob when they tried to bum a fag off him outside a chip shop in Fforestfach.  They converted Jack’s mother’s coalshed into a rehearsal studio and soundproofed it with a couple of hundred polystyrene egg trays they blagged from the local Spar.  Following the swathe cut by Welsh heroes, The Manic Street Preachers and Super Furry Animals Trampolene have composed a clutch of extraordinary songs that speak of the ordinary existential struggle of a stony broke dreamer armed only with a loud guitar and an overdue library book.

Says Jack Jones himself: 
“It’s taken me a whole lifetime to write this album, so maybe you can spare me 51 minutes of yours to give it a listen. That’s not even an hour. It’s quicker than an enema, and more fun””
‘Swansea To Hornsey,’ will be available on limited edition 12” vinyl, CD, Deluxe CD and digital download. Two songs ‘Alcohol Kiss’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a_MIdHX8nk & ‘Beautiful Pain’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTfZMFzo2hM are available now when you pre-order the album from:
