Lonely Robot, the new project masterminded by producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena), has signed to InsideOut Music and is set to release its debut album Please Come Home on 23rd February 2015. Backed by the storming rhythm section of Nick Beggs on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, the album also sees guest appearances from Peter Cox (Go West), Nik Kershaw, Steve Hogarth (Marillion), Heather Findlay, Kim Seviour (Touchstone), Jem Godfrey (Frost*) as well as narration provided by British actor Lee Ingleby (Master & Commander, Harry Potter).John Mitchell had this to say about the project: "I'd long thought about doing an album where I could have total control from start to finish with the music, lyrics, production, and choosing who I wanted to contribute - expanding from the idea of just a solo album. Musically, this album is very proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise, inspired by my love of science fiction and interest in the evolution of the human race."
The second part of the promised trilogy masterminded by John Mitchell finds our Lonely Robot astronaut hero, the central character in the ongoing adventure, emerging from a long period in stasis…Whilst not a concept album, The Big Dream and its core theme follow directly on from the 2015 Lonely Robot debut, Please Come Home, in documenting the adventures of the character of The Astronaut. Judging the album by its cover, our hero is pictured in a scene of discovery, awaking from a cryogenic sleep in deep space and finding himself a woodland surrounded by animal headed figures. Yes, it’s all very Midsummer Night’s Dream; a scene and concept that Mitchell has described as “something of a solipsistic haze.”This time round there’s a tighter knit band in stark contrast to the all star cast that contributed to Please Come Home. Tighter knit to the extent that a description of ‘less is more’ seems an extravagance; aided on this set just by his FROST* team mate Craig Blundell on drums, the pair have the luxury of bringing in Liam Holmes keyboards and Tilt’s Steve Vantsis on bass for live shows yet there’s no compromise in quality or passion for the project at all. The transition is seamless.The cover art matches perfectly the short opening Prologue (Deep Sleep) open that comes as a gentle otherworldly overture and disembodied vocal intro before the blast of Awakenings. Once the needle drops, The Big Sleep delivers archetypal John Mitchell who’s made his presence felt in It Bites, Arena, Kino and FROST*– bringing to Lonely Robot what his FROST* pal Jem Godfrey describes as his epic songwriting. Big slabs of powerful melodic rock with some progressive leanings accompany moments of calm and reflection.Two tracks which have teased the album, Sigma and Everglow in particular showcase the heavier melodic rock side while In Floral Green and the inspirational The Divine Art Of Being, the latter featuring some lyrical jazzy noodling, give a glimpse of the more reflective side. The grand instrumental march of the title track essentially pulls threads together with an extended guitar passage heralds the onset of the album closure, exhorting “please come home lonely robot”. It leads a haven of peace in the Roger Waters-ish Hello World Goodbye, except with a touch of pathos, and Epilogue (Sea Beams).It concludes another highly satisfying piece of work from the seemingly bottomless John Mitchell vat of creativity. Another chapter too that leaves the door open for continuing episodes…
