Nick Toczek & Signia Alpha - Another Shoreline
This free download-only single is the second to be taken from The Columbus Memoirs, the third album from Nick Toczek & Signia Alpha, which is due for release in June 2022.
While the lyric of Dignity, the album’s first single, dealt head-on with the suffering and flight of refugees and migrants, Another Shoreline tackles the disorientation and unease of arriving in a foreign land.
The distinctive bassline is by Paul Gray (The Damned, UFO, Eddie & The Hot Rods). Matt Webster plays guitars, drums and ukulele while Simon Nolan adds mandolin, with both of them plus Harris adding their voices to Nick Toczek’s lead vocal.

The Columbus Memoirs is the third album from Nick Toczek and Signia Alpha.
The vinyl album consists of ten brand new songs including Dignity which was released as a single in January2022 and Another Shoreline which will be the album’s second single. The music ranges from guitar-driven new wave indie-rock to Zappa-tinged jazz grooves. Paul Gray (The Damned, Eddie & The Hot Rods, UFO, etc) contributes his distinctive bass to four of the ten tracks. Added to this soundscape are the powerful lyrics of performer-poet and storyteller Nick Toczek.
The CD consists of these ten songs plus a further nine sample tracks taken from the two previous Nick Toczek & Siugnia Alpha albums, Walking The Tightrope (2021) and Shooting The Messenger (2020).
The heavily illustrated 120-page book contains the lyrics of all three albums, details of each recording, and the back-stories of Nick Toczek, Matt Webster (aka Signia Alpha), and all twelve guest musicians.
