We have been advised that a number of you have noticed what appears to be the release of a new Gryphon album available on Spotify. The album, entitled “The Tall Tale” (quite relevant really), is in reality by an artist called “GryphØn. We have no involvement whatsoever in this album. There is also a compilation album that has recently become available on Google Play, combining the above with three genuine vintage Gryphon tracks. This listing is accompanied by a genuine Gryphon biography, copied and pasted from Wikipedia. Its release has not been authorised by us and we are currently in contact with Google Play to have it removed from their site. For your information, Gryphon’s genuine new album is now progressing very well and we shall have more news on this shortly.
Everything else is going well following our miraculous resurrection, and we're receiving great thanks and enthusiastic response to our gigs so far this year for which we are deeply grateful and very touched.
We now have a new member in the wind and reeds section, no less than the very brilliant Andy Findon, who replaces Keith Thompson after his recent retirement.
Last year's big night at the Union Chapel has been filmed and sdited, and now awaits final mastering and production of a DVD.
Meanwhile, we are steadily progressing within a twelve month gestation period, to create a long-awaited new album, which will be released in 2018, our first for a mere 40 years...!!!
We really enjoyed seeing you all on Saturday, 25th November, down at the fabulous venue, Trading Boundaries, in Uckfield, East Sussex, which was our last gig in 2017.
