Details of the excellent radio documentary on Speakers Corner Kalbakken were commissioned to write a new tune for. It was based on the poem “Clever Tom Clinch” by Jonathan Swift and uses the tune of “Nottingham Town” as it’s departure point.

This carefully crafted half hour radio show is an insider’s tour of the many faces of Speakers’ Corner, peppered with sonic surprises. It reveals Corner’s intriguing origins, its enduring mystique, and why people who write it off as a realm of cranks and fanatics should think again.
A package of these just arrived in the post this morning! Looks and sounds awesome. Track from Jack called ‘Lost’ on A side with a Kalbakken work out of a tune ‘Ulversdalen’ which we were playing around with alot on the last tour we did on the flip side; from Jack’s sleeve notes:
“scary, joyous, faithful, irreverent, delicate, boisterous, musically astute, threatening to fall apart…”
Pretty much captures the Kalbakken vibe in one.
Epic drawing by Karel Wouters handscreened by label boss Levi Seeldraeyers looks amazing and smells good too.
Get in touch if you want one!

Well, not Kalbakken in the usual sense! Below are a few choice bits of free playing from Kirsty (violin, voice) and myself (guitar, voice) recorded in Manchester last week.
Our side of the forthcoming 7″ on Smeraldina-Rima kind of marries some of this stuff within a song based structure.
