10th August 2009: New album "and a panda"
Edward Barton - And A Panda Boxset

'and a Panda' is a new Audio Box set by Edward Barton, which include a new Studio Album 'and A Panda' along with lyric book, postcards and a selection of prints of his Paintings.

Edward Barton is a cult figure in Manchester. His career spans three decades as a filmmaker, artist, curator, performer, songwriter and poet.

From a first bizarre appearance on Channel 4's music programme The Tube in 1984 singing ''I've Got No Chicken but I've Got Five Wooden Chairs" while playing guitar with a wooden spoon through to the controversial Dadaist gallery Oblong he set up in Manchester's Affleck's Palace his position as a Manchester and National Treasure is assured through the constant generation of creative chaos. Barton's '90's performance night, Hip Replacement, developed a Studio 54 like reputation in Manchester's music scene, and his own song writing has seen him work and chart with the likes of A Guy called Gerald, 808 State, Opus III, Norman Cook and Kylie Minogue.

This latest collection is a joy to experience: Edward speaks the language of pop with an accent so deliciously and seductively foreign that the mother tongue will never sound quite the same again. Edward has a rare ability to make music that is simultaneously beautiful and funny- most artists have to do these things one at a time.

The Album is available as part of a limited edition box set, or on its own from selected stockists.
