The Parish Council very much enjoyed a screening of Andrew Kötting’s By Ourselves in the Belbury New Spirit Hall yesterday. A psycho-documentary-drama about the poet John Clare’s 80 mile asylum escape from Essex to Northamptonshire in 1841.
Our parishioners should be persuaded by the involvement of the following remarkable people:
Iain Sinclair, Freddie Jones, Toby Jones, Alan Moore, Jem Finer, Macgillivray, Stewart Lee and a straw bear.
This is just amazing!
Also gratefully received from Trunk Records, Classroom Projects is a magical compilation of 60’s and 70’s school records. These gems are much beloved by some of the longest serving Ghost Box artists and are in evidence here and there in their back catalogue. Fans of the Toys and Techniques blog will love this strangely beguiling selection ranging from the light and folksy to the darkest avant garde. Naturally enough Ghost Box are all over this one, its remastered by Jon “Advisory Circle” Brooks and cover art is by Julian “Focus Group” House. Available now with preview clips in the Trunk Shop, CD and DL only (the LPs are sadly all gone by now).
