Chas’ new single and video

8 Jan 2021

The new track ‘Street Games’ – the second single from the forthcoming Chas Hodges album “Right at Home – selected unreleased home recordings 2007 – 2017” is available to stream and download now. The song was written and recorded around 2012 and is pretty much autobiographical of Chas’ Edmonton childhood. The amazing video has been created by the hugely talented benpics – the man behind the Bob Mortimer/Athletico Mince animations as well as the recent memorable clips for C&D classics Gertcha, Wallop, and Diddlum Song.

Chas Hodges album pre-order

04 Dec 2020

“Magic Time of Christmas” – the first single from the forthcoming Chas Hodges album “Right at Home – selected unreleased home recordings 2007-2017”.

“Magic Time of Christmas” was the first dedicated Christmas song that Chas wrote and recorded, and until now has remained largely-unheard.

When Chas wasn’t on the road (or on his allotment!) you’d find him in his living room recording music. “Right at Home” is a very special collection of that music – unreleased, and unheard songs recorded over a ten year period between 2007 and 2017.

These are not rough ideas but fully-realised and hugely-enjoyable songs that Chas would’ve wanted the world to hear, including ten original compositions and four covers.

“Magic Time of Christmas” is available now to download and stream on Spotify, and Apple Music here.

“Right at Home” will be released on the 26th February 2021 and is available to pre-order now on CD, 180g Black Vinyl and digital here.

Chas’s unheard home recordings

22 Sep 2020

As anyone who knew Chas would tell you, when he wasn’t on the road you’d find him in his front room tangled up in mics, pianos, guitars and other assorted instruments busy writing and recording songs.

He left behind some wonderful unheard music from these home recordings, and we’ve been going through them selecting the pieces that we feel he would’ve deemed finished and good to go.

These recordings will be released as an album so keep an eye on this page for updates.
