Three Barrows Round – United Bible Studies
We’ve had the pleasure of working with David Colohan on three of his solo releases so it’s a real pleasure to have him back with us a 4th time and this time as part of ever fluid United Bible Studies collective for a new cassette release.
Taking inspiration (and field recordings) from a visit to an old roman cemetery, this captures them at their most atmospheric. The band cite MR James’ classic tale “A View From A Hill” but for some reason “Red Shift” by Alan Garner is what plays in my mind as I listen to this. I guess both tales are about a strange coming together of past and present.
That’s precisely what happens on Side A of the tape. All the tracks on Side B are assembled together into one piece like a DJ set directed by psychogeography rather than beats. Side B are the actual individual tracks.
