Space travel is an expensive business, but you can now tour the galaxy at modest cost with our new stellar artwork! Specially designed to accompany our recently-released album Star Clocks, this cosmic A4 colour poster is printed on 170gsm silk-finish paper and personally signed by Dave & Barbara. Available now from our online store, where you can also pick up the album and other musical artefacts.
Star Clocks is available in CD and signed CD versions in a 4-page colour Digipak with a 12-page colour booklet containing song lyrics. Featuring Barbara Gaskin on vocals, Dave Stewart (keyboards / arrangements), drummer Gavin Harrison and Beren Matthews on guitar, it consists of 62 minutes of new music, comprising eight of Dave's original songs along with an iconic '60s cover version (see here for a complete track listing).
Setlists for our recent London and Tokyo gigs are available on our
concerts page, along with a review of the London show.
We'd like to thank everyone who came to our Tokyo concerts and gave us such a great welcome. Special thanks to promoter Tom Ohsawa of Real & True for making the whole thing possible - we're also grateful for the invaluable help of our friends Yasuo Matsunaka and Masahiko Miyazaki, and appreciate the assistance of Jack Hotop and Ibon Martinez Garcia (Korg), Jamie Franklin and Atsushi Shimizu (Roland) and keyboardist Hiroyuki Namba, who kindly lent us keyboards. Also, respect to the gentleman who travelled from Germany to see all three shows! We had a great time playing to our loyal listeners, and look forward to coming back to Tokyo as soon as the opportunity arises.

Dave Stewart (keyboards) and Barbara Gaskin (vocals) are English musicians who began their respective careers as band members in the early '70s. The duo enjoyed immediate success with their 1981 debut single 'It's My Party', a worldwide hit which reached number one in the UK and Germany. Dave & Barbara have worked together ever since, releasing their music on their own independent Broken Records label and occasionally performing live as a trio or quartet.
This site focuses on the work of Stewart / Gaskin, which can best be described as intelligent pop music. For more information, please see our info page links below. Our complete catalogue, including 12" mixes, alternative versions and bonus tracks, is now available in remastered CD format from our
online store, operated by our musician friends Burning Shed. All profits from these sales go directly to the artists with no record company involvement.
