Was Ist Das? a special moment in time in a special place perfectly captured. Stripped of the hangovers and wooden benches, something special remains Favorite track: Everyone Yearns For The Boiling Black Sky.


The Agricultural Light & Magick series compiles various live appearances (& occasionally other ephemera) since Raising Holy Sparks was summoned in 2011. Lately I've been playing under my own name also, but there have only been a handful of appearances thus far.

Tor Ist Das, Unitarian Church, Todmorden, England (16/08/15)

A personal favourite. Some spoken word, a duo with Willie from Woven Skull, which is one of the most emotional performances I've ever been involved in & to balance that, a joyous gathering of friends to finish - Kek-W, Glen, Sophie, Ciara, Katie, Uli & Kemper Norton. Three harmoniums!
I have a bit of Yorkshire in my soul for sure... Thanks to Sophie, Jake & Ned, The Beiderbecke Tapes & Last Of The Summer Wine.


released April 1, 2017

Track 2 previously appeared on Noise In The Wood, A fund-raiser for Calder Valley Flood Relief Fund released on Was Ist Das?
