One of the things I love about my fellow Brits – and I admit it’s not a big list – is the fact that you can know someone years and not know about their talents. I’m not talking about a humble brag, it’s just not done usually to push your work whereas in other countries you’d be told within the first few minutes.
One of these is Tony aka Frobisher Neck, who I met many years ago at Duckie, and bonded over a love of Krautrock. Turns out he’s quite the musical whizz, for instance the work he did with swedish acid-folk duo Us and Them covering Wicker Man songs. I wish they’d done them a few years back, they’d be a dead cert for my Summerisle shows – I know from then trawling through many covers of these songs that covers of Wicker Man songs are ten-a-penny. Good or different ones like these covers, less so.
And gladly/sadly (for I want) they sold out this EP immediately when released at the end of last year – but you can hear them on Soundcloud:
