  1. Avebury screening 12th March

    Urthona pal Ric Kemp will be talking about his experimental film ‘Avebury’ (which we did the ambient soundtrack for a few years ago) in the cinema cafe area at the WEA Filmclub event at the Clapham Picture House, London SW4 0AT on Monday the 12th March 2012, after a screening at 18.10 of James McTeigue’s Edgar Allen Poe inspired film ‘The Raven’. Details of the event here. And Ric’s got an edited version of the massively psychedelic film on youtube here.

     

  2. We are making a new world

    A new Urthona session track ‘We Are Making a New World’ will be haughtily barging its way onto the airways as part of the third Black Sheep/Biker FM Tue’sday Night/Wodnesday Morning show going out next week. Fling yourself madly this way for info; expect extreme amp manglage and, on the night, saltier language than two pissed up pirates swearing like errrr fucking fuckery.

  3. I am the Sea

    29.12.11 An elemental day on Perranporth Beach, Cornwall. This is the rock (island?) where Townshend recorded the sea sound effects in 1972/73 used in Quadrophenia, and inspired side four’s ‘The Rock’. The second pic shows Carter’s or Gull Rocks off in the distance in the far right, used in the last two pages of the orig Quadrophenia booklet insert. There could be Urthona live action in Cornwall in 2012; we hope so, we totally massively absolutely love Kernow.

  9. 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.
