John Doran, editor and scribe at The Quietus and author of the excellent book “Jolly Lad” (our review of which seems to have got stuck in a log jam of some description – apologies to all who are waiting for this) came to Manchester’s Islington Mill on 31st May 2015 as part of his month long UK tour with Arabrot, ostensibly plugging the book.
While there, in a unique one off, he hooked up with the mighty Gnod, whereupon the two goliath artistic entities improvised along to two readings from his erstwhile tome.
The result has been captured by Tesla Tapes (Gnod’s output for recorded works) who felt that this unique show had to be documented “as the night was special and the recording came out so flipping good.”
This recording you can, if you’re so minded, buy online at Bandcamp for a mere two squiddlies (digital) or as a tape (physical) for £5 GBP + P&P by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking “how can we acquire this wondrous artefact”. Fancy making this a “try before you buy” offer? No problem – check out the stream embedded below.
ALSO – don’t miss John Robb’s “great, soul searching” natter with JD from a few weeks back, and should you wish to buy the book (coz you know it’ll be great) just hie theeselves hither: strangeattractor.co.uk/shoppe/jolly-lad.
