The last few weeks have been busy, so there’s quite a lot of news to catch up on.
I had a wonderful time in Belgium and Germany, playing shows together with Will Z, Alice Artaud, B’ee and Elysian Elderwood and returned home with an exciting stash of records I haven’t yet had time to listen to. My favourite venue of the tour was Deux Ours in the tiny town of Nandrin near Liège, which looked like a hunting lodge from Twin Peaks, decorated in antlered deer skulls, sepia photographs and other odd and fantastic items.
Whilst staying in Liège I recorded a radio show for Radio Rectangle, containing live tracks, short interview snippets, and a selection of tracks from some of my favourite artists. You can listen to the show here:
Whilst I was away, Frances Castle at Clay Pipe has made a couple of lovely risograph print sets based on the artwork for my album and they’re available to order from the Clay Pipe Shop.
Just published by Wyrd Harvest Press is Folk Horror Revival: Field Studies – a collection of essays and interviews on folk horror-related subjects. It includes an edited version of the paper I gave at A Fiend in the Furrows – ‘Subtle Magic and the Thrill of The Wicker Man‘, together with essays by Adam Scovell, Phil Legard, Andy Sharp and interviews with Philip Pullman, Alan Lee, Julia Jeffrey and Drew Mullholland.
