about

We first came across the choir in 2017 when we booked them to play Caring Is Creepy in Margate. The choir was a new thing then and a little rough around the edges (I initially wondered if it was a cover for mid-week drinking by some of Margate’s mums, and for that I sincerely apologise). It seemed like a nice idea to ask them to cover some Moshi Moshi songs to mark our 20th birthday celebrations but we never dreamed they would come out sounding as good as they have. Much of the credit for that must go to the expert guidance of choir master Hughie Gavin who arranged and directed the recordings and took these songs in some deeply moving and unexpected directions, with some additional help in the mix from Margate resident Adem Ilhan. This has been one of our most joyous releases in recent years and maybe just the start of a wonderful working relationship.

Some background to Margate Social Singing Choir –

Margate's Social Singing Choir was formed in 2017 with a simple idea, no auditions, no need of previous experience, just a place in the community to sing some awesome songs together and have a good time. The choir has performed shows at Dreamland, Margate Pride and the Turner Prize, as well as recording vocals for Swim Deep's album 'Emerald Classics'.

A quote from Stephen Bass of Moshi Moshi –

“I have a love of weird, perhaps not necessarily cool covers of songs, Acid Brass, Sonic Youth covering the Carpenters, Langley Schools Project doing David Bowie, Howard Marbern's cover of I Want You Back, Trinidad Steel Drummers covering Cissy Strut, Los Angeles Gay Men's Chorus doing Benny and the Jets (if ever you need cheering up please watch this www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQvj4dy9pPc). I am not even sure who came up with the idea for this but as soon as you hear the choir covering these songs it works so well... hits the right spots, fun and emotive at the same time”.
