The world needs more eye-rolling incantatory folk songs about school trips gone wrong and strange hospital stays.

I'm blown away by this. Imagine Ye Olde English Folk music meets John Fahey meets Slint with some darkly surreal and acerbic Half Man Half Biscuit-esque lyrics. (sorry a lot of comparisons there and its more than the sum of all that)

An astonishing piece of music - dark and intense - all 11+ minutes of it.   2

"Outside the chip shop Thaddeus Wagstaff fractures my cheekbone; 3 empty cans of Castlemaine XXXX Go rolling down my trouser leg Blood, snot and curry coalesce in the corners of my nails My friends drifting away from me"

Very late to this, but last week I heard Richard Dawson for the first time and now I’m barely listening to anything else. This, from his most recent album, somehow simultaneously calls to mind Mike Waterson, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Sleaford Mods.   1
