An evening of fine music....
Barrett's Dottled Beauty
St James Infirmary
"Barretts Dottled Beauty is what you get when you cross a Kitchen Cynic with a Pefkin. Nursing an obsession equally with Syd Barrett and lepidoptera, Alan Davidson and Gayle Brogan formed this duo in 2016, playing semi-improvised experimental folk, informed by their shared interest in nature, folk song and noise. "siren-esque psalms quietly stare, seduce and enchant, beguilement doesnt begin to touch it, ghostly drone mosaics, which arrive trimmed in classicist vintage whose lineage ripples to a dawning of time whilst sonically balanced on a finite point located somewhere between the primordial psych folk utterances of Alphane Moon, Ghost, our glassie azoth and the bewitching trips of George Harrisons blue jay way' "
Review of the album "Owls in her Eyes" https://marklosingtoday.wordpress.com/2017/01/08/barretts-dottled-beauty/
"St James Infirmary is primarily Gary Lang, the Ashington Brian Wilson (although depending on the night, he could equally be the Ashington Steven OMalley, the Ashington Klaus Wunderlich or the Ashington Father Yod). A veritable cottage industry, he self-releases a bewildering stream of music from his secret bunker at Marios Recording Services: everything from lush electro-pop to psychedelic jams, neighbour-sampling doom to baroque covers of Richard Dawson songs. Its fair to say you never know what to expect from an SJI gig except something to remember." Lee Fisher NARC January 2017
