Did you know that England is actually divided into just two counties, Northshire and Southshire? Or that Ian Ball of Gomez is actually, ahem, the very same Ian Ball who tried to kidnap Princess Anne in 1974? No? Well, prepare to be educated, you history book-believing squares. Luke Haines and Cathal Coughlan are The North Sea Scrolls. A 42-track conceptual album and academic lecture, with narrations from Andrew Mueller, will be released on November 19, 2012 via Fantastic Plastic Records, musically and demagogically presenting the details of the titular semi-hidden history of Britain.
