About the track

Gerry & The Shed supports
Greenpeace Environmental Trust

Greenpeace defends the natural world and promotes peace by investigating, exposing and confronting environmental abuse, and championing solutions. The Message is about how the world is being destroyed in so many ways and how we have allowed this to happen on our watch. Our children are paying and will pay the price for our greed. The Message was first conceived a decade ago by Billy Nicoll (words and music) and Ken MacLennan (co-writer and drummer with The Shed). It has just been recorded by Gerry and The Shed. It has never been played in public before. Our thanks must go to Gerry and Calum for their assistance with this project of love.. It was recorded by Keith Morrison at the Wee Studio in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, . Discussions with Greenpeace have been ongoing and will continue about how best this track can help with the work of Greenpeace both in raising funds for them .and raising awareness of the environmental issues that we now face. Please be generous and also think about becoming members of Greenpeace. Living so near to Tiumpan Head on the Isle of Lewis where I can observe whales migrating I took the liberty of involving whales in the project! Greenpeace has moored its iconic ships in the past nearby and hence the reason for the cover photo, kindly given to us by Greenpeace.
