Nick Toczek & Signia Alpha - Dignity
The download-only single, Dignity, is the first track released from The Columbus Memoirs, the forthcoming third album by Nick Toczek & Signia Alpha,
This hard-hitting song tackles head-on the lack of compassion shown to refugees and asylum-seekers. Our original plan was to make the download free. However, in response to the devastating war in Ukraine, we’ve amended that to a pay-what-you-want option (from zero upwards) with our promise to pay every single penny thus raised to UNICEF Ukraine Emergency Appeal which is working in support of all those fleeing that conflict.

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.
