This is another one of those painfully late Toad Sessions which crashed into the bottleneck created when we recorded five sessions in a very short space space of time at the end of 2011 and then ended up putting most of them on ice when the label took over my life in early spring.
Nevertheless, this is a lovely session, and as an acoustic one it is also something of a change of sound from the recent ones. Sam had played one of our gigs the previous night at Henry’s Cellar Bar with Withered Hand and Mike MacFarlane, and the next day we recorded a session and promptly buggered off to the pub for a few pints.
Thanks are due to Neil from Meursault who recorded this session, to Dylan Matthews for the photos, video camera work and excellent leftover turkey sandwiches, and to Ian Greenhill for helping with the filming, as well as for being gracious enough not to make me re-export all the videos after forgetting to add him to the credits because we recorded this damn thing so bloody long ago.
As per usual, mp3s of the session tracks can be downloaded below for free, then there is the full interview podcast (tracklisting at the bottom of the page) and then the four individual session track videos, with the main video at the top of the page. Cheers – Woodpecker Wooliams in a couple of weeks!
