  1. Comin at ya

    Rehearsals for next weekend’s show…


  2. Swallowhead Springs

    Swallowhead Springs, south of Silbury Hill, where the rivers Kennet and Winterbourne meet. Usually by this time of year the river would be completely dry, but not this soggy summer.

  3. Freaky clouds

    The world is strange and awesome, even on a nondescript industrial estate


  4. Chesil Beach

    Pillbox base remains on Chesil Beach between Hive and Cogden beaches



  5. Two shows in October – Reading and Bristol

    We’ll be doing Urthona and the Asterism support slots for Julian Cope in October at:

    Reading Sub89 Friday 5th October 2012

    Bristol Fleece Saturday 6th October 2012

    Different sets each night too – and we’ll be unleashing the full version of River Severn Bore…

  6. Trespass Map

    To mark the 80th anniversary of the glorious mass trespass on Kinder Scout in 1932, the Ramblers Association have put up a Trespass Map showing places in England and Wales which are out of bounds. So super useful for planning righteous and potentially lively field trips… BRING IT ON VIXEN TOR!

  7. Avebury screening 12th March

    Urthona pal Ric Kemp will be talking about his experimental film ‘Avebury’ (which we did the ambient soundtrack for a few years ago) in the cinema cafe area at the WEA Filmclub event at the Clapham Picture House, London SW4 0AT on Monday the 12th March 2012, after a screening at 18.10 of James McTeigue’s Edgar Allen Poe inspired film ‘The Raven’. Details of the event here. And Ric’s got an edited version of the massively psychedelic film on youtube here.


  8. We are making a new world

    A new Urthona session track ‘We Are Making a New World’ will be haughtily barging its way onto the airways as part of the third Black Sheep/Biker FM Tue’sday Night/Wodnesday Morning show going out next week. Fling yourself madly this way for info; expect extreme amp manglage and, on the night, saltier language than two pissed up pirates swearing like errrr fucking fuckery.

  9. I am the Sea

    29.12.11 An elemental day on Perranporth Beach, Cornwall. This is the rock (island?) where Townshend recorded the sea sound effects in 1972/73 used in Quadrophenia, and inspired side four’s ‘The Rock’. The second pic shows Carter’s or Gull Rocks off in the distance in the far right, used in the last two pages of the orig Quadrophenia booklet insert. There could be Urthona live action in Cornwall in 2012; we hope so, we totally massively absolutely love Kernow.
