Boomkat Product Review:
A spoken word and music project by Belbury Poly, writer Justin Hopper and folk musician Sharron Kraus . Based on live performances of Hopper's 2017 book 'The Old Weird Albion', it’s a poet, autobiographical and psychogeographical account of his experiences at Chanctonbury Ring on the West Sussex Downs.
"The album is a blend of folk, electronic music, poetry, prose and environmental sound. Kraus’s electro-acoustic soundscapes and songs interweave with Hopper’s rich, intimate narration. Musically it moves effortlessly from the traditional to the avant-garde with Belbury Poly contributing music and production throughout and bookending the work with a memorable theme tune.
Finding its spiritual home on Ghost Box, the project is reminiscent of a lost era of poetry and music albums, like David Cain and Radiophonic Workshop's The Seasons. It comes artfully packaged in a style that recalls a poetry and music for schools LP, with a nod towards 1960s Topic folk anthologies."
