A DEVOTED band has launched its sixth song as part of a unique all year round project.

Ben Wood, 35, and his band Ben Wood and the Bad Ideas have embarked on a challenge to release a single every month of this year with No Substitute being released on Saturday.

The music video was filmed at the Marlborough pub in Dedham.

Harwich-born Ben said the special guest on No Substitute was “the Progfather himself” Billy Ritchie of 60s prog pioneers, Clouds and 123.

He added: “As well as being recognised as the forefather of progressive rock he is also famous for having introduced a young David Bowie to Jimi Hendrix. It is an honour and a privilege to have him on the track.”
