Ocean Colour Scene guitarist Steve Cradock releases his debut solo album in February 2009. The Kundalini Target features a guest appearance from Paul Weller.

Cradock is still part of OCS and plays in Weller's band. But he has also recently worked with singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald and is producing the debut album by Paul Weller's teenage son, Natty Weller.

Cradock's friends are lining up to heap praise on his own solo album. Richard Hawley calls it "truly wonderful" while Oasis singer Liam Gallagher reckons "it's a modern day George Harrison's All Things Must Pass''.

Songs include Running Away, Beware Of Falling Rocks and Ask The Sound. Previews of tracks can be heard at Cradock's MySpace page.

If you didn't know, Kundalini is a specific type of yoga. "The kundalini is present at the perineal region," say "The kundalini is found between testicles and the rectum for the males whereas for the females it is located between the clitoris and vagina."

So there you go. Cradock's not just good for bluesy mod/pop guitaring and chirpy headwear, he can teach you interesting things about your arse too.
