The Game – the story of a record


‘The Game’ – a musical peace

Why would you wait over 50 years to release your first single? Perhaps you’re just waiting for the right song to come along? But that’s the story of The Beaucrees; formed in 1963, worked their way around the clubs and pubs of London and the South East in the ‘60s and ‘70s and broke up finally in 1979.

We reformed in 2012 and then Michael Kain wrote this song.“The Game” started life in 2005 when he wrote a “lost love” song with the theme being ‘love is a game’. After watching the recent terrorist attacks on Paris and Brussels, he was so outraged he decided to do something and revisited the lyrics for “The Game”, changing it into a song for peace. It was then suggested that we should release the record to raise money for a charity that helps wounded service men and women – so we are humbled and honoured to dedicate this record to Help for Heroes and the great work that they do.

We made this record, but we owe a great deal of thanks to the following people:

  • to Mark and Guy at Nub Music Records who helped us so much to get it released.
  • to David Doll at the Farm Factory for his patience and skill in recording this record
  • to Freddie Osbourne and his team at Fredeo Films who put together the great video of the song
