A month or so ago Chloe Frieda who hosts and runs The Alien Jams show on NTS Radio & also the Alien Jams Record Label, invited me back onto the show. I was last on the show way back in February 2014 and had a fantastic time. So I was very much looking forward to it again. This time round I played tunes by The Soulless Party, Simon Heartfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Thomas Leer, The Listening Center and Space Art. I had a fantastic time, and after a very swift post show drink I bid my farewells to Chloe and headed of to find the tube station. Top tip for the day, always check to see if there is any engineering work taking place on the underground.
Very happy chap because the new The Advisory Circle album From out Here dropped through the door. And what a fine album it is to. Some very interesting and creepy stuff here, Mr Foyster(is full of menace) From out of Here (a tad errie)Triadex Two Five Nine (they are coming to get you) Jessica finds the Beach (Mournful and lovely). A big old thumbs up for Mr Brooks, and no doubt this will (like as The Crow Flies did) live in my car for a few months for those long and dark winter journeys (I have one coming up in fact, just me and From Out of Here)
This collaboration came about after I made a visit to Douglas’s recording studio, Twister Valley Records in North Devon to spend the weekend immersed in music, writing and producing field recording’s whilst rambling the countryside and beaches of North Devon. The product of this weekend’s folly was ‘My Morning Ritual’, an electronica scene scape produced by Keith Seatman with words by Douglas E Powell which explores the beauty and ancient rural secrets of the surrounding North Devonshire countryside. I have since recorded another track with Doug and a 3rd might be in the pipeline. All these tunes should be on the next album due out sometime in 2015. My Morning Ritual is available now on Bandcamp for the mighty price of 80p.
Here we are coming into the Autumn, and I have managed to cobble together another mix. But what do we have on this one????? The Elephants Memory, The Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Justin Hopper, Wendy Craig, The Owl Service, Nino De Luca, Simon Heartfield and loads more. So there you are, and of you go now.
It all started with an email from Kevin Oyston (Soulless Party Tales from the Black Meadow)
"Can you contact Chris Lambert" (Tales from the Black Meadow Book)
So I sent Chris an email, he sent me one back.
"Would you like to take part in Songs from the Black Meadow"
Without any hesitation I said "YES"
Each week one of the fifteen artists from the Songs from the Black Meadow album is featured on the Songs from the Black Meadow blog page. From Sunday 16th to Sunday 22nd of June it was my turn to be featured. So if you want to delve into my past present and maybe a bit of my future then go to here and have a mooch. Chris Lambert recently recorded a mix for The Garden of Earthly Delights which can be heard here
