John Stammers – Full Band Show
JOHN STAMMERS like natural accidents which you only get with tape.”Just as tape passes between reels, music-making has ebbed and flowed throughout John’s life. Song-writing in Manchester before relocating to London, John, like his grandfather before him, is no stranger to a solid work ethic;
An introduction to a new mystical world, John’s new lp on Wonderfulsound Waiting Around fuses the great Brit folk-jazz traditions of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, with further-flung sounds of Gene Rains, Eden Ahbez, Moondog and Sun Ra.Featuring the varied skillset of John’s many musical friends. Paddy Steer (Home Life, 808 State) lends his expertise by way of homemade percussion, Nancy Elizabeth plays Celtic harp and adds warmth with her vocals, piano melodies are provided by Aidan Smith and Alfie’s Ben Dumville plumps up proceedings with rousing trumpet sounds.
A rare opportunity to catch John with a full band in Manchester in support of this release, DJ support from Miles Copeland (Wonderfulsound) Moonboots and Jason Boardman (Aficionado Recordings) and friends.
