Drag City (DC 794)

		Alasdair Roberts, Amble Skuse, & David McGuinness

		Easter Parade

	B-side's a gorgeous rendering of a 'flagellant song' from the days of The Black Death — ancient music to apply to recurrent aches today.

		Weirdlore: Notes From The Folk Underground

		Haruspex Of Paradox


	Folk Police Recordings have taken up the baton laid down by the weirdlore organisers and bring you an album of 18 exclusive 
	tracks by some of the best artists operating in the twilight zone between folk and all manner of odd-goings-on. 
	The album features names you may know (including Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman, Sproatly Smith, Rapunzel & Sedayne, 
	Nancy Wallace and Telling the Bees) and some who will be less familiar. In keeping with the theme of the weirdlore all-dayer, 
	the album features sounds that range from twisted trad to bucolic psychedelia, from fully fledged brass-and-wood-flavoured 
	steamfolk to the sort of songwriting that used to happen before singer-songwriters gave the genre a bad name.

	With extensive sleeve notes by Jeanette Leach and an introduction by Ian Anderson.
