More early 90s ambient sounds to sooth the January blues- this time from Ultramarine who did a kind of pastoral ambient techno thing with echoes of old English folk music, although Discogs tells me this is Future Jazz, Downtempo. So what do I know? Featuring Louth’s own Robert Wyatt on vocals.

Advent Post Number Two

It’s not that I’m against Christmas, more that I’m against Christmas music; there’s just so much tripe. Sadly the ‘alternative’ Christmas song has become a bit of a cliche too. But door number two on the Bagging Area advent calendar opens- slightly badly I’m afraid, the perforations are not very well cut and it’s ripped the face of the calendar as well- to reveal actress Clara Bow, a dog and Mr Wild Billy Childish mixing up The Who’s A Quick One mini-opera with some yuletide mod rock.
