ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Besides writing and playing music I’ve always had this huge desire to know what’s over the next horizon- physically, not metaphorically. I can remember being placed on the beach, family summer holiday, five years old. The North Cornwall landscape comprised a sandy inlet with a rocky headland each side, and a single road, which meant that from time to time a car would appear round one headland, drive around behind the beach, then disappear from my view behind the opposite headland. It was a matter of desperate urgency to my tiny head to follow that car over the horizon and see where it went, what was there, and what was behind the next horizon and so on.
It wasn't so much a matter of dovetailing the music and the exploring into one glorious creative vision, (as if I had any control over what was actually happening in my life); it was more that the obligations of doing music (if you’re going to do it properly) took over my life to the point where there was no time left for the exploring.
One day in 2005 tho, several years after Hurricane Katrina and the Waves had rumbled away into the past, a cartoon light bulb went on in my head. I would walk the series of ancient ridgeways from Holme next the Sea in Norfolk to Avebury in Wiltshire (passing conveniently close to my home in Cambridge), and set the journey to music. A fair chunk of what appears in CD Baby album descriptions is Americana; this is Englishana.
This is the only time in my life that I’ve attempted to record physical impressions of the outside world in music; one unexpected effect was that most of those impressions realised themselves in a simple theme, so the songs were very short! Solution: call it a fifteen-track EP.
There are four drummers on the record. Not all of these ‘cats’ were in the studio at the same time! Some of these short instrumentals were recorded on the 'one instrument at time' system, so because I can’t play the drums, I overdubbed onto existing recorded chunks of suitable high quality drumming from Mattacks, Hannan and Harding; thank you for your inadvertent cooperation.
