'Engage' is the first track to be taken from
'TOWERS' the 2nd album from BALTIC
FLEET, released this Summer and which follows his 2008
self-titled debut which was an Album of the Year
(No 29) for Rough Trade Shops. Baltic Fleet is the
moniker of multi-instrumentalist and DIY producer Paul Fleming. The
second record signifies a departure from the travelling and
diarising of life on the road (whilst touring as keyboard player
for Echo & The Bunnymen), and arrives home to
the industrial backdrop of North West England. The album was
written and recorded in a room overlooking the industrial landscape
a stone's throw from Spike Island, the scene of another Northern
band's finest hour.
