Black on Black

Otis's band release first CD

Otis Lee Crenshaw's backing band have released their first album.

The Black Liars have combined their own compositions with cover versions for The Black Album - including a country version of Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Outta my Head.

Many of the tracks - which have been recorded in the past few months - will be familiar to fans who have seen the band support Rich Hall's comic creation. The full track listing is below.

The tongue-in-cheek album is not available in shops, and is currently only being sold after the band's gigs. (Click for dates)

However, you can pre-register to order one by post at the Black Liar's official website.

* Stand-up Joel Sanders, who claims to have performed in more US states than any other British comic, has also released a CD, recorded at a casino in Reno, Nevada. For a copy, send a cheque for £11 payable to Joel Sanders to PO Box 2022, Watford, Herts WD19 5ZN
