After what seems like a long and tantalising wait, Nick Beggs’ new album hits the stores on Friday!
This eagerly awaited long player has created a real buzz amongst Kajafans, as Nick sidesteps the confines of prog rock and moves towards what would be best described as alternative pop/rock territory. Typically bass-driven yet quirkily multifaceted, the Mute Gods are the ideal vehicle to showcase Nick’s songwriting. Sure to please ‘Goo fans, this album features Nick on lead vocals; the first since 2008’s Gone to the Moon, recorded as a member of Kajagoogoo. With the Beggion on bass, guitars, Chapman Stick, programming, keyboards and vocals, this is the album that fans have been craving for a long time…
The Mute Gods line-up consists of:
Nick Beggs: string basses, string guitars, Chapman Stick, programming, keyboards and vocals
Roger King: keyboards, programming, guitars, backing vocals, production and mastering
Marco Minnemann: drums, guitars and sound design
The album also features Ricky Wilde and Lula Beggs amongst other guest players.
‘Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me’ is available on gatefold double LP, Compact Disc, and digital download, and is in stores from January 22nd.
A huge KajaFax ‘Happy Birthday’ goes out to drummer Jez Strode!
Have a fantastic day, Jez!
To celebrate, let’s roll back a couple of years and enjoy this fantastic festival performance…
Thanks for visiting KajaFax!
Both Steve C and I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our readers for being so supportive of both the site and of course the band! Throughout the year, many of you have submitted your photographs, recollections, views and comments to the site.
We appreciate each and every one!
We both look forward to another year of bringing you the very best in all things ‘goo…..rest assured, if it happens, you will hear it from us first!!!
Happy New Year to all of our readers! Here’s to a fabulous 2016!
Finally, we bring you an important KajaHunt update.
KajaFans are a great bunch of people, and today we received a lovely email from our KajaHunt ‘second prize’ winner, Ian. Ian had his eye on the contents of the main prize pack, but has emailed us to say that as a second prize winner, he would like to give another KajaHunt entrant the opportunity to win something.
As I’m sure that you will agree, that is a lovely gesture! KajaFax thank Ian for his generosity!
So, what that means is that we have a prize back up for grabs!
We decided that in the spirit of New Year, we should simply put each and every entrant’s name back into the ‘hat’, and draw a winner’s name at random. Also, to celebrate New Year, we added and extra couple of bonus items to the prize!
Our ‘new’ winner is KajaFan Sandra Šarić from Croatia. Congratulations!!
You have won the following KajaHunt prize pack plus a little New Year bonus….
* A Kajagoogoo and Limahl Album Series 5 disc Box Set
* A signed Limahl postcard (autographed by Limahl in Blackpool in September 2015)
* A scarce Reunion tour promotional flyer, issued for the ‘Stables’ homecoming gig in 2008
* An original 1983 White Feathers Tour Programme
Thank you again and very best wishes for the New Year!
It‘s Christmas Day!
Team KajaFax wish a Merry Christmas to all of our readers!
