Jumble Hole Clough: Dandelion Radio Session Feb 2017

The songs on Colin Robinson's new Jumble Hole Clough album Dandelion Radio Session Feb 2017 were recorded for Peter Jackson's show on the fiercely eclectic internet radio station. He came up with a series of oddball lyrical snippets with references to Captain Beefheart (Luddenden’s Burning and domestic chores (And The Dust Will Gather On The table). He needed just one repeated line for The Other Room ("Let's go into the other room"). Only a keen observer like Robinson could come up with song title like Streamlined Art Deco Apple for a song about the chayote,

The stand-out track is Neuz Annoyz!, an instrumental that could have been recorded by a nascent Pink Floyd, sounding like it was saved from Joe Meek's Tea Chest Tapes. Robinson rarely repeats himself, but he was obviously enamoured wiht one of the tracks form Live at Northlight Art Studios, 17th December 2016 and decided to have another go at his fishy improvisation and included Like A Cloven Sunfish (Part 2).

While the tracks were recorded over a two-moth period, this album feels like one long performance, And that how it should be digested: in one sitting, with a nice cup of tea and maybe some scones with clotted cream.

Dandelion Radio Session Feb 2017 is a self-released album. Buy it (pay-what-you-want) from his website.
