Lord Fayrebank: Out On The Lake
Psych folk awesomeness in the shape of a download single from Lord Fayrebank, featuring Creation Records royalty Ken Popple (Biff Bang Pow!) and Andrew Innes (Primal Scream, Biff Bang Pow! and The Revolving paint Dream)
Emerging from the bohemian capital of the Cotswolds, Stroud, Lord Fayrebank are a new pysch folk three-piece. They were formed by original Creation Records artist Ken Popple, who played drums for Biff Bang Pow! – Creation Records’ house band (for want of a better phrase), led by the label’s two founders, Dick Green and Alan McGee. The band cut six incredible albums for Creation, still enjoyed by a diehard cult fanbase, though sadly no commercial success ever came their way. The band also at times featured Primal Scream/The Revolving Paint Dream guitarist Andrew Innes.
Ken Popple now fronts psych folk trio, Lord Fayrebank, also including Gavin Mcclafferty of Lensmen and Isa Clee on keyboards and vocals. His old Creation buddy Andrew Innes helped out in the recording process, by what the band describe as “a final additional sprinkling of musical stardust.”
The band’s new download single is now available on Bandcamp.
