Blue Touch Paper

Colin Towns’ new six piece band released their debut album ‘Stand Well Back’ in Germany on the 13th May 2011.

Formed in 2010 with German and UK musicians, the writing/recording took two years to complete. Featuring Mark Lockheart (Polar Bear, Loose Tubes), Chris Montague (Troyka, Kit Downes), Benny Greb (Peter Wölpl, Ron Spielman), Stephan Maass (Randy Brecker, Kruder & Dorfmeister), and Edward Maclean (Peter Fox, Nils Wülker).

Blue Touch Paper has no barriers “rarely does a piece of music demolish the well known conceptions of sound and structure.”

Jazz, rock, film, classical, electronic etc - it’s all of these but none of these. Leave your expectations behind - this is not a predictable band!
