Album Notes
This album came to pass as a result of a summer midnight stroll that was curtailed because of local air pollution.

To the west superb and beautiful sunsets !
With a westerly breeze, TV Dinner fumes mostly Beef and Onion from the factory!

To the North West, superb architecture
With a North Westerly gale it's a POO burner and if the Thames is at low tide as well, Watch Out !!

To the North, flatlands
With a Northerly gale, think about highly toxic chemicals stored under pressure at a fertilizer plant. And give them the chance and it will be a Waste Incinerator too, with all the dioxins you can take!

To the North East, flatlands and factories
And in winter, Artic winds and in summer Rapeseed processing for vegetable oils.
Pheww, what a whiff !!

To the south is a bluff, a steeply rising hill
The day before the Hurricane of 1987 I had an empty plastic bin outside my door,
After the Hurricane of 1987, I had an empty plastic bin outside my door!

In 1980 a house in the south of the borough, or at the top of the bluff, sold for £50,000, today sells for £250,000 to £300,000

In 1980 a house in the north of the borough, or at the bottom of the bluff, sold for £30,000, today sells for £90,000 to £95,000

Dave Putson

Dave is a musician, playing and teaching in South East London for the past 20 years. In 1989, Musicians Academy in Wapping provided an enrichment and visionary setting for Dave and his Electric Bass. Dave successfully auditioned for the MUSICIANS INSTITUTE of Los Angeles in 1991. Studying with some World reknowned musicians and tutors such as Gary Willis, Scott Henderson , Jennifer Batten. Dave received an accelerated degree in Music in 1992.
Since returning to the UK Dave has played with several Bands most notably "So What" who toured extensively throughout the UK . Other bands included "Norbere's Nodules" (yes, it did mean that !!) & "Blue Green and Redd ".

Dave now teaches Bass for 4, 5 and 6 string Electric Bass with over 25 courses listed on his website (

The nucleus of "So What" has been utilised in Dave's current band "Joocypeach" .

When Dave is not writing or working at his home studio he is teaching other local musicians the needs of the professional musician and the music industry.

The Project

The "Joocypeach" project has now come to fruition. It is an album of songs in the soul jazz genre with a view ! Dave took a conscious decision to use locally-based artists. The "Joocypeach" album "Midnight over Erith" will see both art work and the musicianship of local professionals. The album itself contains 12 songs totalling over 60 minutes of music. Three of which are vocal tracks.
There has already been radio play in Moldova a small East European country on the Black Sea. This is as a direct consequence of the involvement of singers from The Moldovan State Opera in the final track of the album.These vocal tracks being the only non local intervention.

Great, funky. Groovy baby!
Good album and great value for money. Its groovy funky its great. Not to sure about the cd sleeve though. But hey its the music that counts and that was great.

Terry Jarlsberg

My search is over
For years I've been seeking a record that marries the full-on excitement of Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto with the fear & trembling of Marvin Gaye's 'Here My Dear'. My search is over.

Stephen Smithson

South London hinterlands evoked through infectious, interesting grooves
Since only the local resonates universally, this is true World Music. It succeeds splendidly in evoking that demilitarized zone between south-east London and Kent, an area whose heart – if it can be said to possess an organ so suggestive of vitality – may as well be Erith as Bexleyheath or Slade Green or any of the other jewels in the local topographic crown. But if these guys make very English music, they are both open to un-English influences – I hear echoes of Bill Frisell , Jan Garbarek and Steely Dan – and possessed of at least one very un-English characteristic: they're not so awed by their own ability to set up infectious grooves that they allow said grooves to overstay their welcome, so they find ways of keeping things interesting while ensuring that any changes sound organic and unforced.


I bought this track because I was curious. Where is Erith any how? Worth every penny. Every track was just rocking. I mean its so good to hear orginal music again and not the usual tripe. O yeah on the subject of tripe what's the deal with track 12. I thought Moldova was somewhere in Neverland. I just hope I never hear track 12 again in a hurry - this is the only disappointment. If you skip track 12 its a great buy. A classic for the future.
