We're well into 2017, and there's plenty to update you with.

Sound And Vision - aired 7 Jan
We released an interpretation of "Sound And Vision" over Christmas: https://soundcloud.com/keshco/sound-and-vision
This was broadcast as part of a Resonance FM four-hour special on Saturday 7 January, alongside a load of exciting and mostly bespoke versions of Bowie tunes through the ages. This can be heard here (the show's been split into three parts, and ours is the first track in part 2): https://www.mixcloud.com/Resonance/the-hello-goodbye-show-07-january-2017-the-day-before-part-2/
Peace song - video and Brussels screening 22 Jan
Keshco are among over 30 groups (mainly activist choirs) who are taking part in a Brussels-based art project in support of conscientious objection to war. We recorded a version of the newly-written anthem, "Say No! (The Deserter's Song), a complex song by Elvis Peeters and Dick van der Harst which we've interpreted for vocals, clarinet, synth and beatboxing. Our video will be broadcast alongside others at a live event this Sunday, 22 January, at Kaaitheater in Brussels. This event will also feature some live performances (not from us) and will be well worth attending if you're near Brussels this weekend.
Our video of "Say No!" is viewable on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/198727287

Here are a couple of notable recent additions to the growing catalogue of film clips that talented auteurs from around the world have been soundtracking with Keshco and Bleak House tunes:

Most of our albums are now available through the major streaming services, and playing these tunes (or adding us to playlists) actually brings us a little extra revenue, which is really appreciated and makes future projects more likely. You can find us here:
