Thanks to Iggy Pop (!!!) for playing The Silence Has Spoken on his BBC Radio 6 Music show last night alongside legends like Can, U Roy and Miles Davis! Also thanks to James at The Slow Music Movement for putting out the beautiful compilation Future Folk- Friendly Faces, Different Spaces that it appears on
A little live performance of me playing ‘Fading Rhymes’ from home. Mostly me nodding my head along to the metronome and twiddling the odd knob, but then again it’s not really foot on the monitor, stage diving music.. maybe next time.
Blimey! Made a little appearance in The Guardian this morning as The Slow Music Movement’s compilation that I appear on is folk album of the month- The highest profile coverage since I was in Gamesmaster magazine 28 years ago!
It’s a lovely flowing collection, many thanks to James for curating and great to be featured amongst such likeminded artists such as: Alula Down, The Howard Hughes Suite , Geir Sundstøl – sundstoel Scott William Urquhart, Bróna Mcvittie, Avocet Jeffrey Silverstein, Andrew Tuttle, El Conejo, Black Brunswicker, Tracy Chow, Pete Thompson & Me Lost Me.
I have recently (well in the last 6 months) appeared on two lovely compilations. Back in November 2020 I appeared on this beautiful and eclectic compilation highlighting the loss (and near loss) of many species:
And in April 2021 I appeared on this other beautiful and eclectic (within a folky idiom) thing:
It’s great to be on compilations with other amazing artists so if you are compiling anything at the moment do let me know and hopefully I can hop aboard!
Spent the evening finishing the artwork for my latest album, ready to send the first orders out tomorrow!
Busy rehearsing for first Christmas show this Saturday at Bonington Theatre, Arnold! Hoping we don’t peak too soon like poor Elfy here..
Just stumbled upon this, love the fragments of speech. Always fantastic to see music I’ve made from a different point of view…
The piece used is That Was The Day:
Also found this video, never of this Chava guy but he seems quite a character.
The track He Said, Life is a Question but Don’t Let Them Hassle You For An Answer comes in a little way through:
Maybe I need to do some research, seeing as the one who has to listen to me screeching away for hours on end is of the woofy persuasion…
Will be spending most of the day trying to squeeze out something vaguely musical from this new creak ‘n’ drone machine! New album on its way soon…
