As I write this, I’m hoping that Sunken Paths VIII will be received as the mix version polar-opposite of Baldrick’s famous 2nd WWI poem (you know, the one that “…started off badly, tailed off a bit in the middle and the less said about the end the better”). I always thought that critique was a little harsh anyway, War is a horrid thing after all. So, here it is, let’s all sing….
New music from LTO, Christine Ott, Rob St John, Astral Social Club, Dogs versus Shadows and Simon Klee, Haq, SAD MAN and Dalhous. The Haq track is from “Mark Barton’s The Sunday Experience” compilation on Edinburgh’s Bearsuit Records – a kind of celebration of the work of writer/music reviewer, Mark Barton who, sadly, died last year. All proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
New High Jinks features no less than three tracks from Blackford Hill Transmissions Vol 1, out on Blackford Hill in April. It’s a substantial 2 CDs of really excellent tracks and highly recommended. Profits from the release go to Shelter. Some great forthcoming releases from 12th Isle, Denovali, Gizeh Records are also in the mix alongside new work from Daniel Avery and Kevin Richard Martin.
