Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
quail & dumplings
The recordings featured on this very limited 7" single play in the wake of 'Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues'.
‘Quail & Dumplings’ manages to balance contrasting perspectives within itself - one of great lack & wanting, & the other of a sense of greatness coming. This shifting tone is greatly enhanced by the fiddle of Billy Contreras & the remarkable voice of the well-travelled Caroline Peyton. The song alludes to travellers who may be unclear on when their next meal is coming, but are still determined to keep their positive outlook on the journey of life. B-side features ‘pull your eyes out, molly’.
