Lobate Scarp’s new album, ‘Time and Space’ – Yes Music Podcast

[slideshow_deploy id=’1431′]

Time and Space – a progressive space-opera rock odyssey

Adam Sears from Lobate Scarp was kind enough to send me the items you can see above all the way from the US. I was delighted to receive them.

The CD package has a great, full-colour booklet inside with photographs, lyrics, acknowledgements and even a proper explanation of the band name with illustration!

As you can see, the band members have even signed this copy so I feel very special!

Why not get yourself a copy of the physical CD? The music is excellent and holding the package in your hand is a delight.

Thanks so much, Adam!
