I’m Colin Tench and I am part of many projects. I play guitar and here is the state of play right now:
1981-1985: ODIN . We were continuously gigging for 3 years. Digital album release 2011
1985: BUNCHAKEZE: was formed with Gary Derrick and Cliff Deighton of Odin. We recorded the album WHOSE DREAM? CD release 2010
1985-2010: A 25 year break! 2010: After that nice rest, two albums from Odin and BunChakeze were finally released.
2011: Picked up the guitar again. Figured out 4 chords(Prog) and am now fully active recording with the following rather amazing and diverse bands:
CORVUS STONE: Almost totally instrumental. Progressive and atmospheric with jazz funk leanings. Our first 80 minute album was released in Dec 2012. It is now in the top 100 crossover prog releases of all time http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=39547 on progarchives
THE MINSTREL’S GHOST :with Blake Carpenter. Zoltan Csörsz Jr(Ex Flower Kings) on drums. The road to Avalon is becoming a great success! http://www.bunchakeze.com/The_road_to_Avalon.php
