Dream Themes '20 Golden Greats' 2x7"
Everyone’s favourite TV theme covers band release their debut 20-track album on 8th December 2017. It fits on two seven-inch singles playing at 45rpm.
Over the past couple of years, Dream Themes have played their exuberant, rowdy, fun-packed versions of classic TV themes to whooping crowds at Festival No. 6, Wilderness and Camp Bestival, and their TV appearances include ITV’s Paul O’Grady Show and BBC4’s Live From Television Centre.
Formerly a backing band for papier-mache headed legend Frank Sidebottom, they've shown similar enthusiasm for following up ridiculous ideas, e.g. an onstage game show (“Shenanigans”), a YouTube soap opera (“Thamesmeerd”), a Christmas pantomime (“Santa In Space”) and a kids puppet show (“The Y Factor”). They’ve been the subject of at least three bemused articles in the national press and have established themselves as the must-have band for unorthodox wedding receptions. First dance to the theme from Blockbusters, anyone?
After their news-based double A-side of 2014 (“News At Ten O’Clock News”) they vowed they would never release another record because of the huge amount of admin involved. But when Too Pure agreed to do the paperwork, they relented.
