about

'lo-fi recordings from lock-down, April 2020'

Finding myself furloughed due to the Coronavirus lock-down and unable to get together with my musical compadres I decamped to my wife's summerhouse at the bottom of the garden and set about recording a few songs and poems. I'd been wanting to do something that mixed together these two sides of what I do for a while and this is the results. The recording technique is very lo-fi - just one mic and recorded straight down to one track. I liked the idea of it being a bit field-recording style only instead of a field I had a garden and instead of a wax cylinder I had an MP3 recorder. In keeping with this it's a pretty bluesy collection and you might detect a little influence from the likes of Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Hank Williams and of course Woody Guthrie. I'm sure some of these tunes will re-emerge as band versions and there may be more songs from the summerhouse to come!

Pay whatever you fancy or just buy me a glass of wine on the other side.

Stay safe y'all!
