There was a flurry of excitement amongst tight security at Lymm Radio HQ this week as NEIL FAIRCLOUGH of the Deccan Traps dropped in to talk about the group’s new single release “The Great Divide” with James on The New Music Show.
When Neil isn’t making brilliant music with his band, he’s normally seen by thousands of fans all around the world – in sell out stadium tours, playing bass alongside Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert in the supergroup, Queen. It’s a role he’s proudly played for more than 10 years.
In the early 1990’s Neil, together with Lois Fairclough, John Dagnall, Neil Edwards, Andy Treacey and Johnny Hayes became lifelong friends and began writing and playing music together. Eventually, Ricardo Afonso teamed up with the guys and the Deccan Traps was born.
Ricardo is an incredible vocalist with a huge voice and was a perfect fit for the band. He’s no stranger to the limelight either – having been featured on ITV’s “The Voice” in 2013. Since that time, he’s received rave reviews for playing the role of Galileo in Queen’s hit musical “We Will Rock You” in the West End.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, many of the group’s plans were put on hold – but as we return to a new normality, work is underway to promote the group with the release of a brand new single and video “The Great Divide”.
THE GREAT DIVIDE – A TIMELESS CLASSIC
At Lymm Radio, we think the track is amazing. It has all the elements of a timeless classic and it deserves to be a huge hit. No matter your taste in music, this song is sure to offer something to tick your boxes. Have a look at the official video – better still, download the song from the official channels and make this song the hit it deserves to be.
