Geraint's third solo album, 'In A Bad Mood' was recorded alongside Nick Lowe's recent 'At My Age' album sessions. As with Nick's album, it was recorded with Lowe, Matt Radford, Robert Treherne, Matt Holland, Steve Donnelly and others at Goldtop Studios, produced by Geraint with Neil Brockbank. The CD is the launch album for Goldtop Recordings, in partnership with Jungle. Watkins' ability to make the simplest musical statement into a moment of top class entertainment still amazes even his closest associates.
But it's not just his performances that set him apart. He's also a notable songwriter, credited with several uses of his songs in film soundtracks. Geraint Watkins was born in South Wales more than 50 years ago. After an art school education he moved to London and has been playing with the top names in popular music ever since.
Latterly Geraint has taken time out for two solo albums that have built a loyal audience - 'Watkins Bold As Love' in 1997 (Bluefive) and 'Dial 'W' For Watkins' in 2004 (Proper). Now with ‘In A Bad Mood’ it's time for his exceptional music - which covers blues, jazz, folk and rock - to be listened to attentively and appreciated. Tracks: Easy To Say, Champion, Unto You, Fools Like Me, Chagrin, My Love, Bourgeoisie, History, Jenni, Heart Of The City, Catch On, At Last. Cat.
