Groovy Uncle is the creation of Medway musician Glenn Prangnell.
In 2011 the Groovy Uncle album ‘Play Something We Know’ was released. 2012 saw the release of the Suzi Chunk album ‘Girl From The Neck Down’.
In September 2013 the Groovy Uncle (feat Suzi Chunk) album ‘One Vowel Away From The Truth’ was released, and is available from the Groovy Uncle site.
A new single ‘Barefoot in the Car Park/Wet Weekend’ is released by State Records on heavyweight vinyl and download July 28th 2014. The album ‘Persuaded’ from which the singles come will be released later this year.
The Groovy Uncle line-up is ever changing and is mainly a recording project with the occasional live
gig. The line-up (including guest appearances on recordings) has thus far featured:
Glenn Prangnell, Suzi Chunk, Mole, Marty Ratcliffe, Ian Snowball, Ben Jones, Allan Crockford, Paul Moss, Bob Collins, Chris Hearsey, Johnny Barker, Darryl Hartley, Nick Rice, Bruce Brand, Phil Brown, Peter White and John Littlefair.
A brand spanking new album from Groovy Uncle featuring my good(??) self entitled ‘A Clip Round The Ear’ will be released on 14th August on luscious green vinyl and CD, but you can pre-order yours now! The first 100 buyers will receive both formats plus lyric/colouring-in sheet, postcard and green balloon.
You can hear a clip of one of the tracks HERE. It will also be available to download from i-tunes and suchlike. Check the brand new Unc website for everything you need
