The Unthanks Archive Treasures (2005 - 2015)

The Unthanks "Memory Box" (mentioned here) seems to be out of stock, but remember you may get your "Archive Treasures" CD, with a fine (instrumental) version of Robert Wyatt´s "Alifib/Alifie", and lots of other good stuff too!

The "Alifib/Alifie" track was recorded at Brighton Dome in 2012.

Great mugshot? I found it over at Stokes Craft China, where you may order one.

Athelas Sinfonietta: Robert Wyatt

Remember the blog post on Copenhagen´s "G((o))ng Tomorrow" - festival in October, where Athelas Sinfonietta performed works by Robert Wyatt and Nico?

Here are some new videos from YouTube of Regine Petersen´s take on "A Last Straw" and Peter Bruun´s on "Sight of the wind", both sung by Jomi Massage.

The Tricatel record label is celebrating it´s 20th year, and a new sampler called "Tricatel XX" is released 10 December.

One of the tracks on the CD is the wonderful and catchy "This summer night" written by Bertrand Burgalat, Alfreda Benge and Robert Wyatt (who is also singing).
May well be played while it´s still winter too!

And please note, this song is not on the vinyl version!
