Midwich Youth Club is the main musical outlet for one man multi-instrumentalist Allan R Murphy and has been operational in various forms since 1984.
Allan has long been influenced by Film and TV themes, incidental music and other forms where pop music can freely mix with experimental sounds and ideas. Other bands Allan has been associated with are Megatory and Betty & The Id, Allan is also currently a member of ‘Pages from Ceefax and ‘Jerk Test’.
The album ‘From the City to the Country, from the Country to the Sea’ is a musical journey of a recently departed spirit attempting to reach the place they were happiest in their life, as a child on the beach at dusk, so as to be able to depart peacefully. Each part of the album is a location and situation that the spirit finds themselves in on the journey and a reflection of the emotions experienced.
It is also a musical homage to the ambitious long form songs of the 1970’s Prog and Electronic scenes.
