Catholic Architecture cover
I mentioned this new record one month ago, but here we go again, this time with sound!
Grasscut (Andrew Phillips and Marcus O’Dair) is releasing an AA sided single on Lo Rec. October 20, with one of the A sides being a really fine cover of the Robert Wyatt / Alfreda Benge song "Catholic Architecture" from Wyatt´s "Dondestan" album (1991). It comes (citing Lo Records´ home page) with a nod to the "sound of Robert’s 1982 Rough Trade compilation, Nothing Can Stop Us".
The other A side is the beautiful and mellow "Beacon" inspired they say "by a 12-mile walk from the English Channel to the top of Firle Beacon on the South Downs, on the occasion of the Summer Solstice. It's about leaving the place you live and, when looking down on it from a height, finding it unfamiliar".
