    Episode 17: Golf Girl by Caravan

    The latest regular biennial (and a half)-ly episode takes inspiration from Golf Girl by Caravan. Our takes The Inspiration: Golf Girl by Caravan It’s a long time since I first bought In the Land of Grey and Pink by Caravan. I think it was probably the early 90s. Around this time I was mainly listening […]

  • Episode 16: Poison by Alice Cooper

    Episode 16: Poison by Alice Cooper

    Trash by Alice Cooper Our takes The Inspiration: Poison by Alice Cooper Poison by Alice Cooper is a track I have fond memories of from the 1980’s.  When we started working on this episode it was the 28th anniversary of the release of Trash, the album from which it originates.  Fittingly it’s now the 30th […]

  • Episode 15: Amarok by Mike Oldfield

    Episode 15: Amarok by Mike Oldfield

    Our takes The Inspiration: Amarok by Mike Oldfield The original idea for this episode came from a discussion in the office about Mike Oldfield. Ray had watched a BBC documentary about him.  I think it may have been Ian who then told the story about how Mike had hidden a message for record company boss […]

    Episode 14: Dancing in the City

    Our takes The Inspiration: Dancing In The City by Marshall Hain by Jennie Trueman On a pub crawl last November, 2016, I met Chris (Frosty1973) who on hearing I am in the (mighty) Manchester SHE choir, asked if I would like to have a go at vocals on the next Frozen Veg project.  The creative […]

  • Episode 13: How Does it Feel by Slade

    Episode 13: How Does it Feel by Slade

    Our takes The Inspiration: How Does it Feel? by Slade by Frosty 1973 For this episode we’ve chosen Slade’s classic 1975 single How Does it Feel. This song, which may not be representative of most people’s perception of Slade, combines Jim Leas poignant music with Noddy Holder’s simple melancholic words. It wasn’t a huge hit […]

  • Episode 12: Wargasm by Daevid Allen

    Episode 12: Wargasm by Daevid Allen

    Our takes: The Inspiration: “Wargasm” by Daevid Allen By Frosty1973 Each episode we take someone else’s music as the starting point for writing our own music.  This time we’ve chosen Wargasm by the wonderful Daevid Allen. The early nineties was an exciting time for me musically. My first album purchases in the mid 80s had […]

  • Episode 11: I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A Bread by The Singing Postman

    Episode 11: I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A Bread by The Singing Postman

    Our takes: The Inspiration: “I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A’ Bread” by The Singing Postman by TheParsnip It’s often the case with these Frozen veg episodes that a spur of the moment choice of some favourite remembered song leads to a deeper appreciation of the subject. It’s also true that surprisingly often serendipity strikes and […]

  • Episode 10: Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons

    Episode 10: Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons

    Our takes: The Inspiration: Bam Bam Bam Ba Ba Ba Bam!!!! by Rod Cullen Harp strings and a discordant Wurlitzer organ scream fade into purposeful footsteps. A disturbed bottle skittles into the distance and a prowling tomcat hisses a startled defense. Spotlights sizzle into life and find their quarry in a darkened alley, a machine gun […]

  • Episode 9: The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls – A Poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Episode 9: The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls – A Poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Our Specials Guests’ take on the track: Our takes on the track:   The Inspiration This time we have a very special episode. Since starting the blog we’ve come into contact with many musical artists through the brilliant medium of SoundCloud. Occasionally an artist we come across stands out and makes us listen again.  Tomorrow’s Epiphany are […]

  • Episode 8: Travel as Equals or Not at All by Joseph Arthur

    Episode 8: Travel as Equals or Not at All by Joseph Arthur

    Our takes on the track: Read about Frosty1973’s take and The Parsnip’s take. The Inspiration by Frosty1973 I first discovered Joseph Arthur in the Mike Lloyds Megastore sale in 1997. I’d seen something on TV about him signing to Peter Gabriel’s Realworld label and enlisting Brian Eno on backing vocals.  So when I saw his debut album, […]
