Former bIG*fLAME singer and bassist Alan Brown returns with his long term solo project The Great Leap Forward, releasing a powerful and trademark new album 'Revolt Against An Age Of Plenty'.

Vigorous, scintillating and life-affirming, this 13-song album sees Brown reach a milestone birthday, as explored in 'Can You Kanreki?' - the Japanese concept of second childhood and re-birth.

Then there are the trademark political and social vignettes, such as the title song of the album 'Revolt Against An Age Of Plenty' - railing against mass consumerism and media control; the wistful 'dEBRA 2021' (a re-working of the bIG*fLAME classic 'Debra'); and the ascerbic 'It's A Wonderful Lie' - a scathing attack on the lack of openness, honesty and humility of our political leaders.
