description

Erland is Erland Cooper, guitarist, singer and former resident of remote Orkney. The Carnival are guitarist Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good, The Bad, The Queen) and drummer David Nock (Paul McCartney's The Fireman). Together, they make a pastoral, psychedelic sound described by Tong as Pentangle meets Ennio Morricone meets Love meets 13th Floor Elevators meets Joe Meek. In other words: folk-tinged, psyched up, fuzzed-out brilliance. Their self-titled debut album was recorded at Studio 13 (owned by Tong's The Good, The Bad, The Queen band mate Damon Albarn), overdubbed in Simon's attic and Erland's shed and mixed at the garden studio owned by renowned producer Youth. Keys/harmonium player Andy Bruce, vocalist Georgia Sands and bassist Danny Wheeler also appear. This astonishing record finds the band plundering all kind of literary and musical sources. In the grand folk tradition, The Carnival see source material as something to be adapted, tinkered with, updated and blown apart. Some history: Erland grew up on the Orkney Islands, where passing musicians and troubadors were a common sight. In his early teens, The Verve and Bert Jansch inspired him to swap the fiddle for the guitar. Later, having moved to London, Erland sang at Tong's What The Folk club night in Portobello Road, where he was introduced to the former Verve man by the producer Youth. It wasn't a regular folk night where people are quiet and stroke their chin, says Tong.It was a more raucous affair where the acts as many as 15 a night – had to quieten a noisy baying audience by being good. Erland definitely got people to shut up and listen.
