CRIMSON SCARLET Logo - link to homepage


Formed in October 2001 by Malcolm Journeaux and Paul Preston, Crimson Scarlet were renowned for the quality of their recordings and their superb live music.

Paul left in 2005 to return to Oxford to complete his doctorate. Malcolm continued until, after a number of line ups, four CDs recorded and many gigs throughout the Greater Manchester area, the band finally called it a day in May 2008.

Of the final line up, John Butterworth returned to playing folk music, Tom Szakaly continued with Noddy's Puncture, his ELP tribute band, and Malcolm Journeaux and Lisa Jules formed a duo, Jules & Journeaux, before Lisa joined and fronted a semi-professional band and Malcolm went on to become a well respected photographer - see:
