about

Animals feature in many international news stories. They leap, burrow and claw their way to the centre stage in Jude Cowan Montague's latest album of improvised pop based on current tales of the press.

Be bemused by the confusion of the donkey-pony, admire the resilience of the cat rescued by the Algerian Civil Defence and be tickled by more amazing stories.

Enjoy science with a track about how scientists can tell we are in love from our test our body heat. Appreciate the life story of Guinness Rishi who has broken world records throughout his life. As the song says he has over 300 maps tattooed on his body.

Finally, the title track is about a private zookeeper in Giza, Egypt is keeping wild animals such as snakes and wild cats at his small home zoo and sharing his love for those animals with the local people. The song celebrates his energy for providing refuge for animals and for helping people understand and respect animals. Through his work children and people of all ages are encouraged to show wild animals love and appreciation.

The picture is a sketch by Jude Cowan Montague of Livio the shepherd who lives in Atina, drawn in the summer of 2015 as part of an artist residency.
