Farewell, Bastard Mountain

29 May 2014 at 7:00pm

Bastard Mountain are Pete Harvey & Neil Pennycook from Meursault, Jill O’Sullivan from Sparrow & the Workshop, Rob St. John from eagleowl & Meursault, Rory Sutherland from Broken Records and Reuben Taylor, formerly of James Yorkston & the Athletes.

Farewell, Bastard Mountain was recorded in October 2012. Jill, Neil and Rob each brought three songs - one to sing themselves and one each for the other two vocalists to sing. Over the course of a week the group wrote and recorded music to go with these new versions. The result is Farewell, Bastard Mountain.

It’s a record full of drones and textures, but not as dark and oppressive as that might lead you to imagine. Instead, the semi-improvised nature, live recording and playfulness of the album gives the record a real lightness and sense of unity, to the extent that the vinyl has been pressed without any track breaks at all, as it all just fits seamlessly together as a single piece of work.

The album will be performed start to finish, uninterrupted, with short, stripped-back support performances from Meursault, Rob St. John, Sparrow and the Workshop and Rory Sutherland.
