Pre-order now in the Ghost Box Shop, on LP or CD. The heavyweight vinyl version comes with a free download code card.
A spoken word and music project by writer Justin Hopper and folk musician Sharron Kraus. It also features Ghost Box’s own Belbury Poly. Based on live performances of Hopper’s 2017 book The Old Weird Albion.
The album is a blend of folk, electronic music, poetry, prose and environmental sound. Kraus’s electro-acoustic soundscapes and songs interweave with Hopper’s rich, intimate narration. With Belbury Poly contributing music and production throughout and book-ending the work with a memorable theme tune.
Beautiful design throughout by Julian House with sleeve notes by Justin Hopper.
The Old Weird Albion is now back in print and available from Penned in the Margins and gradually returning to most good book shops.

Pre-orders are open now for Outward Journeys, released on 3rd November on CD, LP, DL and Cassette. It’s the first full length LP for this collaborative project between Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle) and Jim Jupp (Belbury Poly). With John Foxx featuring on vocals and synth on two tracks, Trees and Forgotten Towns, reprising his appearance on The Belbury Circle’s debut EP, Empty Avenues in 2013.
Brooks and Jupp go back to their musical roots with this release, a joyfully re-imagined soundworld that draws heavily on late 70s and early 80s synth pop and library music. An exciting transitional era that first saw the pair taking up synths as kids. With interlocking analogue sequencers, driving rhythms, soaring lead lines, primitive sampling, and its themes of travel and return, the album evokes the eve of the digital era, when “Tomorrow’s World” was still an exciting possibility.
Design is by Julian House, and beautifully captures the excitement and homespun aesthetic of early software and computer packaging. The heavyweight vinyl LP and cassette versions both include a free download card.
Also Back in stock today is Pye Corner Audio’s re-issued Sleep Games LP (heavyweight vinyl & with free DL code)
