Lordy Lord and The Goose - Live at Trof (OJJM1_L)

For the next Space Family: Orange Juice release, I have packaged together a live recording of John McKeown/Benjamin Joel playing a few of John McKeown's songs under "Lordy Lord and The Goose".

The record is a good introduction to John, which will be followed up with an album soon. It was recorded in Trof, Fallowfield in Manchester as apart of "Shakey Joe's Odd Ball" a multi media (allthough primarily music event), with a lot of brilliant singer song writers from manchester playing. Which I have a full recording of, I could compile an album of the recordings if there is any interest? As with a lot of Orange Juice records, this is relitavley Lo-Fi, so is the recording of the whole day/night. ANYWAY, talking with John, this was like this third gig? Most of these songs don't have names (therefore, named by me) and were mostly improvised anyway. I dont really know who this record sounds like, its just very good, slightly jazzy acoustic songs about animals and the weather, sang with an incredible murmer you have, probably, never heard before.

Make. Yourself. Happy.

Three Best Tracks?
Black Lungs,
Wednesday Winter,

John doesnt have a myspace or exist. All that will probably come into being sooner or later. Anything that could possibley do with contacting him, can be asked here, I guess.
