Bug Prentice


‘EP’ out now

Our new EP is out now. You can listen for free on bandcamp, or pay for a download if you’re feeling fancy. All money goes towards future Bug Prentice / Ally Craig recordings.

The songs are as follows:

  1. Couldn’t Tell You
    Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
  2. Lee Miller
    Inspired by model-turned-artist Lee Miller*, her turbulent relationship with Man Ray, her traumatic career as a war photographer, and her subsequent retirement in the English countryside.
    (*not to be confused with Trainspotter-turned-Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller.)
  3. Naamloos
    Instrumental. Naamloos is Dutch for “nameless”, i.e. untitled. I know this despite not speaking Dutch.
  4. Don’t Be That Dude
    A message to dudes everywhere: If you are a dude, please don’t be THAT dude.
  5. Sally Six
    Instrumental. A tribute to “The Sixth Sally, or How Trurl and Klapaucius Created a Demon of the Second Kind to Defeat the Pirate Pugg” – a short story from The Cyberiad, by the Polish science fiction author Stanislaw Lem.

The EP features the usual Bug Prentice suspects (Ally Craig, Ruth Goller, Stephen Gilchrist), plus guest cello from Jon Clayton on Naamloos. It was recorded by the aforementioned Jon Clayton at One Cat Studio in Brixton, and was mastered by Mark Cawthra. All songs written by Ally Craig.
