The cover image and the title of the book are something of a tribute to wandering, The Advisory Circle, Public Information films of my youth…
…and a tribute to times as a child of playing in a valley on the edgelands of a post-industrial town where the water of the stream would change colour (blue? orange?) depending on what was being pumped into it, a sewage pipe over the river with a spiked guard to stop you climbing across it seemed like an impossibly exciting and exotic barrier to surpass and we would be told to not play inside the discarded washing machines etc that scattered the side of the hill (as if we would)…
A Year In The Country: An English idyll, a midnight sun…
“A Year In The Country is a year long journey of and searching for an expression of my underlying unsettledness to the English bucolic countryside dream… and wandering about and through the trails of things that have influenced, inspired and intrigued me along the way, which will quite possibly take in the further flung reaches of folk music, folklore and what has been labelled hauntological culture.”
