  1. Urthona: Live/Unit September 2020

    Out now on Heavy Rural – yours for £1 or more!

    Urthona: Live/Unit September 2020

    A new slab of improvised noise rock from West Country heavy underground legends Urthona – Neil Mortimer on guitar, joined by long-time collaborator Mark O Pilkington on electronics.
    A quaking sonic monolith, crackling with piezo-electric energy, this 24-minute jam will shake the ground, light up the sky and send your ancestors scrambling to barricade the doors in the hall of the dead.

  2. Stonehenge

    Photo taken at sunrise the day before the ‘official’ summer solstice,  social distancing was observed (although the place was entirely deserted), we walked from miles away, we didn’t enter the World Heritage Site, don’t get out yer pram etc etc
