The Submarine Has Surfaced

A 10 track pop album (45m 56s) — released June 21st 2010 on CJ Records

Chas Jankel, is probably best known as the keyboard player and guitarist with Ian Dury And The Blockheads. He co-wrote some of the band's best-known hits, including Hit me with your Rhythm stick, ,Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, and Reasons to be cheerful (pt 3). Chaz was responsible for much of the funk influences in the Blockheads music. As a solo artist, he recorded several albums for A&M. including, Chasanova and Questionnaire which contained the U.S. dance hit, "Glad to Know You". Chaz also penned the Quincy Jones' international hit "Ai no Corrida", and contributed "Do you Mind" to Robbie Williams latest album "Reality Killed the Video Star". Chaz also wrote the score for The motion picture "Sex and drugs and Rock and Roll" which has been nominated for a Bafta. THE SUBMARINE HAS SURFACED in Chaz's words. "Over the last couple of years I've been writing and sketching out ideas in my studio in Muswell Hill, North London. Although many ideas occur and are recorded, very few are what i would describe as "special", but the 10 songs on this album I think are all unique. On this CD I collaborate with 4 other singer/writers. On " I Come Alive' I worked with Natalia Scott (aka MC Tali..a big name in the drum and bass world.) . We met at a Chris Difford songwriting retreat and this was one of our first compositions. On" Hey now" I'm doing the vocals.and.Derek Hussey co wrote the lyrics. "The Farside" and "Check the Meaning" are sung by Steven Tart, a very gifted young singer whose star is on the ascendant.. "A Restless Path", "Wise up Baby" and "I Long for You" are all sung by Alex Watson, another great interpreter of lyric and melody. We met when I was signed to Famous Music. That leaves "Tear it up" sung/spoken/wrapped by Derek Hussey who now sings lead vocals with the Blockheads. Oh yeah, the last tune on the album, "The Way its Going Down" was co-written with Derek Hussey and I'm doing the singing. Just a simple acoustic song (but with a fancy guitar tuning) to cleanse the palette...the same way slices of orange taste perfect after a spicy Chinese voila........dinner is served........."THE SUBMARINE HAS SURFACED"......thanks for listening. chaz jankel jan 2010
