14th December – the Release Date for the long awaited new Bolton Iron Maiden – featuring Paul TJ O’Neill Album
The new BIM album – featuring Paul TJ O’Neill is being released on an unsuspecting world on Monday morning 14th December 2020 – SOD THE LOCKDOWN – WE ARE GOING AHEAD!
With the Lockdown restrictions, the rehearsals for the launch of the album have not been happening, but individually – the band members have been beavering away in their burrows, getting to grips with the – often complicated material.
There will be two versions of the CD – one the favoured “rock” version – which will be on immediate release, the other is the “Storical” version – a deeper look within the story of the Time Traveller and Norman Normal.

Puppet Master the Rise and Rise of Slick Dandy
The album continues the story of the Time Traveller, from the song Maiden Flight. The story tells of what became of the Time Traveller and his faithful mute friend – Bimmie – which is the time machine itself. The Time Traveller can now travel not only through space and time – but to other parallel dimensions. He makes it his mission to help others who have not achieved the success they always wanted, and shows them the comparison in another dimension where they have achieved every goal they dreamed of but, at a cost of course………….
It’s another little piece of history –

Puppet Master – The Rise and Rise of Slick Dandy to be released before the end of the year
The album was to be Mastered at Abbey Road, but due to the Corona virus, I was not able to attend the sessions. I have decided to have the shorter “rock” version of the album mastered by an old friend Pete Reynolds of Reynolds Mastering in Colchester.
Pete and I go back quite a few years and have worked together on mastering in the past. As of today’s date – 2nd December 2020 the album is being worked on. Check out the Samples and the Store Page for more information.

New album “Puppet Master” to be mixed at Abbey Road
Very exciting news that the new Paul TJ O’Neill/Bolton Iron Maiden album will be mixed at Abbey Road next week (16 April 2018)
The album has been years in the making (no excuses). It is a story of the Time Traveller from the BIM song “Maiden Flight” about a boy Norman Normal, who has missed his chance at fame, and wants another go.
Would you sell your soul for another chance?
The album features guitarist Rob Harris (years before he became the Jamiroqui legend) and a rip roaring solo from keyboard wizzard – Don Airey on the song Slick Dandy.
