Let's All Paint Tomorrow Yellow! It's an unusual idea, but then Arthur 2 Stroke is an unusual bloke. Arthur 2 Stroke began his music career as something of a punk guru in the late seventies. Newcastle's answer to Malcolm McClaren, he was a prime mover in the 'Anti-Pop' movement and in 1979 he provided the musical backdrop for the launch of Viz magazine at the Gosforth Hotel. Like Viz, 2 Stroke went on to greater things. He built up a cult following for his eight-piece band The Chart Commandos, earned a record deal, a hit single (if reaching number 175 in the charts with a cover of Hawaii 5 0 counts), and numerous TV roles. But Arthur 2 Stroke is much more than just a pop star, TV celebrity and alternative Geordie icon. For example, during one of the occasional lulls in his showbiz career he drove buses for Go Ahead Northern. In 1985 Arthur 2 Stroke vanished from the music scene, and for over two decades the only chance his fans got to see him was if they boarded the 307 from Haymarket to Blyth. Then in the summer of 2009 he was cajoled into joining former band members on stage at a surprise 60th birthday bash. Inspired by this event, Arthur rediscovered his hunger for fame and got back together with Steve 'WM7' (Washday Miracle 7) Nash, a co-conspirator since the Gosforth Hotel days. 'We're going to get the band back together!" Now aged 63, and with a few grey hairs beginning to show, Arthur 2 Stroke is back - with a bang! His new backing band The Big Black Bomb are an eclectic ensemble whose ages range from 16 to 60, as do the ages of the crowds they attract. For the last three years they've been filling dance floors and selling out gigs to the delight of fans old and new. And this latest wave of popularity for the soon-to-be pensionable pop star has culminated in the release of a four-track CD, 2 Stroke's first visit to the recording studio in 30 years. The resulting record features four self-penned songs. The title - Let's All Paint Tomorrow Yellow - is a lyric from 2 Stroke's rousing, anthemic, political manifesto, 'Little Red Book'. The CDs opener, 'Tax Man' featured in the Chart Commandos' early eighties soul review, and the final song 'Consumer' dates back to the anarchic Anti Pop nights of the late 1970's. Also on the CD is the first studio recording of a ballad that is still immensely popular amongst North East club and pub goers. 'Heaven Can Take Me' was always a crowd favourite, and now at last - after a wait of only 30 years - fans can buy the record.
