'ROCK REMEMBERS RICK' EP
We are extremely proud to announce that our cover of Status Quo's "Rain", our tribute to the late Rick Parfitt, is featuring as part of the 'Rock Remembers Rick' EP.

All proceeds are going to children's cancer charity 'The Shona Smile Foundation'.
The triple A-side EP comprises:
* Walkway featuring John Coghlan - "Rain" - a cover of the Quo classic, marking original Frantic Four drummer Coghlan's first UK vinyl single in over 30 years;
* Massive Wagons - "Back To the Stack" - a vinyl debut for this amazing self-penned Parfitt tribute [* exclusive to 7" format];
* CJ Wildheart, Boss Caine, Ben Marsden and Jason Hodgson with Sound Of Status and The Quo Choir – “Christmas Eve (Nanana)” - a radical rewrite of the 1971 Status Quo album track “Nanana”, adapted with permission of original songwriters Francis Rossi and Bob Young to become a reflective and celebratory Christmas Eve ode to Parfitt. Wildhearts guitarist CJ is accompanied by York Americana stalwart Boss Caine, The Main Grains’ Ben Marsden and new lyricist Jason Hodgson, before Swedish sensations Sound Of Status lead a 1000-strong crowd in an outro singalong recorded at the recent Status Quo Fan Club convention.
