Title: Bad Penny Opera
Artist: Cherry Bluestorms
Label: CD Baby
UPC: 684685000328
Genre: Rock

Bad Penny Opera opens somewhere in the industrial North of 1960's England. Penny and her lover are ending their relationship and Penny begins a pilgrimage South to find herself and a new life. Her story is set against a backdrop of The Cherry Bluestorms' music, fully informed by the British Rock of the era. Although the album wears it's influences on it's sleeve and in it's grooves, it is in no way a slavish parody of the 1960's Hit Parade. Other influences, such as the 1990's Manchester scene, such as The Stone Roses and The Charlatans are also brought to bear. What emerges is a savvy and surprisingly original audio soundtrack to the era of the Angry Young Men, Carnaby Street and early British psychedelia. The album includes The Bluestorms' version of Donovan's 'Wear Your Love Like Heaven'.
