The Jane Bom-Bane Songbook


A new double album's worth of Jane's songs is downloadable from Bandcamp and comes with a limited edition book of lyrics and photos. The first half of the album comprises songs that accompany her legendary mechanical hats, and the latter half features old recordings going back to her time as a Two-Tone artist, some revisitations, and some new songs with arrangements and production by yours truly. It's on Bandcamp here
