this record fuses the great Brit folk-jazz traditions of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, with further-flung sounds of Gene Rains, Eden Ahbez, Moondog & Sun Ra – lots to digest & utterly compelling throughout.

Whilst their influence would not sit so brazenly on John’s rolled-up sleeves, each one possesses inspiring techniques; “I deliberately listen to how music is recorded & put that into my process,” John explains. “A lot of percussion in exotica stuff or Indian, South American folk gives me ideas. Things like a distorted reggae hi hat or a backing vocal that’s way too loud & bleeds all over the other musicians – I like natural accidents which you only get with tape.” ‘Stepping Round Her Clothes’ captures the feeling of being young & in love whilst fiancée Yasmin plays a starring role in ‘Woman.’
