There are now ten new songs in the pipeline being worked up by Jim, Ken, Sam and Simon. But are they Acid Folk? Perhaps Psychedelic Folk or Folk Rock……. Christian Contemporary……. a bit Wyrd….. New Indie Mondiale Scottish….. one eavesdropper has already bigged them up as ‘a bit seventies-ish…….’ we’re asking you to send comment……..
The four Caedmon men have travelled from Manchester and Edinburgh three times to write and record together and a number of the demo tracks recorded at the Nook in County Durham will soon be available to listen to on this website. A trip to the Midlands captured Angela’s voice at a fourth session. Tracks now on www.myspace.com/caedmonsreturn include:
Ken’s currently based in France but travelled for the fifth and latest session in Edinburgh in May, when the band started to rehearse a live set ready for appearances in 2010.
It’s the same musician line-up as in the 70’s, but the instrumentation now includes drum kit, djembe, accordion, mbira, trombone, and ukulele as well as the original Fender Strat, electric bass (through the same old Ampeg combo), mandolin, and ‘cello.
But does it need fuller fuzz, phaster phlange, spaced-out moments of contemplative improvisation? Let us know and
watch this space………..
