Cpl. Kipper’s Barnsley Trades Club Turn was originally released in October 2010, prior to the departure of fellow founder-band member Danny Doonican in March 2011 (and Alan Doonican #1 in late 2014).

This ‘Kipper Revisited’ version of our first album features new or improved versions of the songs from the original album. Some of the original instrument tracks from the 2010 recordings remain, but I went back and added extra vocals and instrument tracks in November 2016 so that the album now sounds a little closer to how I originally envisaged it should.

This album was pivotal to our daft little band moving in a more comedy-based direction. Hopefully this collection of songs abart Tarn still stands up on its own.

In it's revisited state, it also, rather aptly, now also features a bonus live recording of the current line-up of myself, Bjorn and Alan #2 performing most of the album live at the Barnsley Trades Club for the first time ever.
