At one point “Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So” (Early Music, 2018) was going to be a double LP.
This would have been on the second disc:
Delighted to have a spot on this Folklore Tapes compilation as part of a collaborative duo with Sam Mcloughlin.
Features many great artists including Dean Mcphee, Magpahi and Embla Quickbeam:
Very happy to be featured on this – the very last release from the much loved label “Blackest Ever Black”
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
So I compiled some recordings I’ve been sitting on for years – mostly cover songs and sketches – all recorded on the same mashed up acoustic guitar (£10 from a washing machine shop in Frizinghall, Bradford) The action is about 1/2 an inch high and I think that’s what gives it that big bass sound.
The tape itself (ltd to 60 copies) is released alongside a fanzine paying homage to Karen Dalton (who’s album “Green Rocky Road” I adore) and can be bought direct from Synchronize Witches’ Website.
But if you just want to stream or buy the download, you can listen via my bandcamp:
so here’s the record – finally! It’s an LP – not a double, as I had originally intended. I decided to condense it for maximum intensity.
It’s been pressed, the covers are ready, and the prints for the special edition are almost finished…The official release date is Sunday 9th September, when the full album will be available for streaming from Early Music Record’s bandcamp page, + the vinyls to be posted out soon after.
It has been an epic journey – thank you for your patience!
