Global Village Trucking Co

Global Village Trucking CompanyJames Lascelles was a co-founder of the Global Village Trucking Company, known to its fans as “The Glob’s”, in the early 1970s. The band, the road crew and their families all lived together in a Norfolk, England commune, and undertook numerous benefit concerts and free festivals, playing extended free-form jams, making them a well known UK live act. The band shunned record companies, but played on the Greasy Truckers Live at Dingwalls Dance Hall benefit album in 1973, and in 1976 they recorded an eponymous album.

In 1973 the BBC made a documentary about Global Village Trucking Company, their communal living and their aim to make it without a record company. The BBC updated the documentary for the What Happened Next series, shown in May 2008, which included their first gig in 30 years. This re-union led to other Global Village gigs at Glastonbury 2008 and other festivals.
