Released in March 2010, 'First & Last' is the debut solo album from RM Hubbert: guitar wizard and all-round splendid fellow. Hubby is an extraordinarily self-sufficient chap, manufacturing this CD himself and issuing it originally in an ultra limited hand-bound, hardback book format which he lovingly assembled himself. Now sold out, Chemikal have stepped in and can now bring you 'First & Last' in a luscious gatefold wallet replete with CD and printed liner notes. Not content with the making the CD version it's also available for the first time on deluxe, heavy vinyl in a singlefold sleeve with printed inners and an accompanying CD.
The album's a stunning collection of instrumental guitar pieces that reflect upon life, love, depression and death and while that may sound a tad on the 'heavy' side, we can only assure you that it's a beguiling, beautiful piece of work. We may not be right about everything but we're never wrong about music - check it out and enhance your life immeasurably.
