New Audio / Springfield Road live at Tongue Fu / Halloween special
NEW Audio: #springfieldroad live at Tongue Fu / Hallowen Special
Last weeks Halloween special 'Old Bones & Fresh Flowers' at Tongue Fu was an exploration into how we remember and celebrate our dead, with music from the Tongue Fu Band - Patrick Davey, Arthur Lea and Oliver Keen - and animations from CR&D. I read short excerpts about my father and the impact of his suicide from 'Springfield Road'
As you’ll hear in this raw recording, this was an extraordinary journey into the darker, meatier parts of the book. I haven’t read these pages on stage before, its improvised, played live with no rehearsal. Throughout this clip you’ll hear some gorgeous moments, intuitive playing from the band…But its the last ten minutes that’ll grab you, the words and the notes marry, with a rich, soulful rhythm and a sublime, bitter-sweet melody.
Shared with love and thanks.
