Days and Nights at the Takeaway

Sebastian Rochford’s latest Takeaway collaboration includes a brilliant remix by our very own Ruth Goller:

Sebastian Rochford has joined forces with British Bengali sarod player Soumik Datta for June’s edition of his singles club Days And Nights At The Takeaway. This epic, slowly unravelling piece, entitled ‘In Slow City‘, is partnered with a rework by fellow Acoustic Ladyland member, bassist Ruth Goller.

Ruth Goller’s rework has transformed the original into a charmingly peculiar Syd Barrett-like song.

A stream of the tracks was premiered on Songlines’ blog last week. All of the tracks from this series are available to stream and buy on the project’s Bandcamp.

Angular Spirals / Get What You Pays For

Angular Spirals / Get What You Pays For is my new double A-side single. It’s a 7″ black vinyl record, limited to 500 copies. It is available at Videosyncratic on Cowley Road. A bonus CD-R is also available for online orders.



Announcement: New Single on the Way

I am currently going through the arduous process of personally hand-etching two songs into 500 pieces of shiny black vinyl. These pieces of vinyl are flat, round and about seven inches in diameter. The songs will be Angular Spirals and Get What You Pays For. The former can already be heard on MySpace and other such online networking resources, while the latter is a brand new version completely different to the acoustic demo doing the rounds. I am unable to decide on the relative importance of these two songs, so the single is by virtue a double A-side. Get What You Pays For features glorious saxophone insanity by Pete Wareham of Acoustic Ladyland fame, and both tracks feature Stephen Gilchrist on drums and Ruth Goller on bass. I will set up a pre-order system soon.
