Hi there.

My name is Matt Swindells and I would like to introduce myself to the Progarchives community.

Some of you may know me as drummer/vocalist for Moth Vellum a progressive rock band that I was involved with for more than five years. We released a successful independent album in 2008 and played many successful shows including a memorable performance at Rosfest.

I wanted to introduce you all to my latest band and musical offering Mancunian Candidate, which I am delighted to say has now been added to the crossover prog section in Progarchives.

Mancunian (pronounced Man Q Knee Un) Candidate is a nine song (14track) full length continuous play album.

I think the music would appeal to anybody who loves melodic/symphonic prog rock. The tunes range from 2.5 minute pop/rock arrangements to 14 minute epics. There is an hour of music in total.

I play drums, sing, play keys and acoustic guitar on the record. I am joined by some massively talented musicians including Matthew Charles Heulitt (Moetar) on guitar, Matt Bissonette (Elton John) on bass and Neil Fairclough (Queen/Adam Lambert) also on bass.

I would like to invite people to review the CD. If you are interested please private message me here at PA.  I will make sure the first 3 people to contact me either get a CD to review or a digital download. 

Listen to full 10-minute version of Operation Bright Star by Mancunian Candidate on Youtube.

Listen to full 14-minute version of Too Much to Lose on Youtube.

Listen to Circle Lies Unbroken on Youtube.

:  Mancunian Candidate is a continuous play album. For example track "Operation Bright Star" with a total playing time of 10:04 is subdivided into three movements; each has its own track ID.  The same goes for "Too Much to Lose" with a total playing time 14:20, again comprised of three movements, three track ID's.

This was done mainly for the purpose of quick navigation for radio stations. The CD and Itunes versions of Mancunian Candidate play continuously, however, some mp3 and flac players do not support gap-less play. 

If you want to find out more about the band please see
Also, the facebook page is the best place to keep up with news

Again, I would stress that I would rather provide reviewers a free copy of the CD (or high quality download) in order to listen to the music as it was intended to be presented.

Thank you for having me here at Progarchives. Smile

Matthew Swindells
