Wasp Shellac - Dream Middles (Gallium Courgette)

True to form, I have selected (and I'm not certain why) a relatively inconsequential piece as Wasp Shellac's YouTube debut. I mean, it's fine and everything. Okay. This is an early mix, and I already have another, longer, grinding version that may yet see the light of day (or night, more appropriately) somewhere down the line. And yes, indeed, my ID's in my other bum-bag. Enjoy if you want to, but by no means feel obliged.

St. Cuthbert's Burials - Doin' Time

This is one we continue to come back to. We like its taste. This particular recording comes from Spring 2008. Moxther pianos it up while Paul does the guitar thing and The Gander lies on his sunken back vocalising. You see little of this in the video, but what you do see includes (but is not limited to) a Snow Leopard, Nuns Moor and Dave Whittaker. Be sure to visit The Snow Leopard Trust (, from whom some of the footage came, and we trust that, if you're not already a fan, you will soon become an admirer of the cat family's snowiest child. And just remember what Dr. Thompson said...

Dr. Rat - Gander Tone C

Jack Gander (as instructed) recommends a dose of Dr. Rat's "Gander Tone C". The video is made with the same care and attention as was the Gander Tone. Do enjoy, and don't play too quietly.

St. Cuthbert's Burials - Genius

St. Cuthbert's Burials find a little time in their busy schedule to share with you a brand new old nugget of poemsy, an item of brilliance, a crab feast. Not to be confused with the quite marvellous Warren Zevon song of the same title, or with Alfonso D. Einstein (sic).

St. Cuthbert's Burials - Drone on the Bee Train

I had this footage of Kielder and surroundings filmed on the phone, and it was doing nothing. I asked it politely, then kicked it in the shins, all pertaining to its use. I used it. It's here. There could be nothing more appropriate to be jammed into space with it than Drone on the Bee Train.

St. Cuthbert's Burials - Parma Ham/Ambience

Official statement on behalf of St. Cuthbert's Burials:

"A true story. Paul and Phill create the ambience, according to schematics found in a drawer. Mr Gander does whatever it is he does, and then again in visual form. The current trajectory of SCB music is an Eastward one, as you'll have spotted, but in these heady days of steam and unaided flight, such matters are subject to change. There will be no further comment. Thank you for your time."
