Description

A remarkable project taking samples of voices from the 1950s and 1960s radio series, The Radio Ballads, set to dance and techno beats. The EP has been widely praised across radio and press and the track ‘England’ was Record of the Week for Radio 1’s Colin Murray.

“If we’re doing our job right then this should be played everywhere, all over Radio 1” Colin Murray, BBC Radio 1

“Could do for the English tradition what Moby’s ‘Play’ did for Alan Lomax’s American field recordings.” Colin Irwin, The Guardian

“A startling and radical treatment – unexpectedly poignant.” Robin Denselow, The Guardian (3 stars)

“Sounds like the escape committee from Fatboy Slim’s loft, Elvis and an angel. Broadcaster has worked wonders.” fRoots

“I think it’s brilliant. All it needs is a radio network with the imagination to play it.” Gillian Anderson, Daily Telegraph

“A refreshing and vibrant reinterpretation that deserves plaudits as much for its achievement as a piece of work as for its audacity.” Folking.com

“A post-war village meets an illegal rave in a field – and somehow it’s a perfect fit. If you want to encounter Nora Batty on an E, come on in.” Bearded Magazine

“It borders on genius. It has the potential to become huge.” Hit Sheet Magazine
