  1. Cyril Tawney

    Massive respect to Talking Elephant, who have put out CDs of two early 70s LPs by West Country folk god Cyril Tawney. I totally love these Argo label old school reverb-free rarities – A MAYFLOWER GARLAND and CHILDRENS SONGS FROM DEVON AND CORNWALL – who couldn’t with those mighty pix of Cyril on ye Plymouth Hoe on the cover. ( A Mayflower Garland is a bit weird and has spoken word sections, but the final track is the definitive version of The Oggie Man – so you gotta have it.) For further info get yourself over here.

  2. Ric

    Hey people check out Urthona collaborator and underground filmmaker RIC’s youtube vid for his forthcoming ep here.

    The spirit of Arthur and Syd over the Wiltshire Downs?

  3. Tue’sday Night/Wodnesday Morning

    A freshly pooped Urthona session track is gonna be spun on a Black Sheep/Biker FM 4-hour happening that’s being broadcast next Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning. Step this way for info. The track, ‘West Kennet Long Barrow Meditation on Sun and Moon So Heavy’, was recorded inside a chamber of West Kennet Long Barrow, a 5,500 year-old communal tomb on the Marlborough Downs, Wiltshire.

  6. SHHR available in the US

    If you’re in the US you may wanna know that you can bag copies of the new Urthona CD Super-Heavy Hamoazian Reverie through the best record shop in the universe, Aquarius Records in San Francisco. Hurl yourself wantonly in this direction…

  7. CD prices

    The prices in the shop have changed a bit (come down slightly) to standardise the postage so overseas orders don’t get stung for heavy postage. If you’ve bought a copy of SHHR from the site in the last couple of weeks drop me an email and I’ll refund you the difference between the old and new prices.
