CBEEBIES’ star Andy Day will be coming to Gloucester Road Central next month to promote his debut album of children’s songs.

Titled, ‘Who Invited this Lot’, the album is performed by Andy and his band, ‘Andy and the Odd Socks’ and is in collaboration with music producer pals Rob and Dan from Bunkersonix – the team behind many of the CBeebies and CBBC theme tunes.

The album – which Andy says is “tongue in cheek” – includes 11 tracks, all inspired by comics Spike Milligan and the Mighty Boosh, and storytelling classics such as Jackanory.

The album has been created to fill the gap from ages six to 10 where children have to jump from nursery rhymes straight into adult pop, but can also be enjoyed by younger children and adults too.

Each song is a mini-story featuring children’s favourite characters from ‘Battle Robot Rapper’ to ‘Dinosaur Football Legend Mega Match’.

Guest vocalists include Andy’s TV co-stars Katy Ashworth and Sid Sloane, as well as children from Hotwells Primary School in Bristol.

The ‘Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures’ star says that he is delighted to have created an album which can be enjoyed by everyone. He said: “We wanted to write something that would not only make kids laugh out loud but also engage them creatively whilst having something in there for the grown-ups too.

“Our music is aimed at the whole family; we are a variety show for the ears.”

Andy will be doing a guest appearance at Room 212 on November 21, 2-3pm. His album costs £7.99, or 99p a track, and is available to buy from iTunes and Andy’s website, www.andyday.tv.
