So someone compared us to Tortoise a while back I cannot really see the comparison but a great compliment all the same. Here is some great footage taken from a Pitchfork session in Brooklyn, enjoy.

Derroll Adams

In the quest to discover more banjo music, have come across Derroll Adams. Probably to aficionados of US folk music he's an obvious but to the relative layman (such as I am) he's a find.

It seems he is one of those characters that's remembered more for his influence than his actually recorded output. He hung out and recorded with Ramblin' Jack Elliott and, although to a lesser extent, like Ramblin' Jack and Woody Guthrie is credited as an influence on the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 60s and Bob Dylan.

He lived the last years of his life in Belgium where he seems to have been well regarded, judging by youtube searches of him throwing up lots of clips from Belgian TV.

Anyway, I like the banjo playing; rich and organic. And his voice; understated and sincere.

New David Lynch stuff

You maybe be able to hear the influence he's had on our music, but excitingly he's just released some new stuff on Sunday Best... amazing



Nice insight into how Lynch and Badalamenti work together...



Angelo could be accused of hamming it up somewhat here though...




and finally...
