I listened to a lot of withered hand in november while I was staying at the berry jones house in southeast london. we wish we could have scoured the record shops for these when we were there, but some were sold out long ago. if we were in london this weekend, we would go see dan willson (who is withered hand) DJ at this thing on 26 jan. if we were there on 16 february, we would go to this hangover lounge thing at the union chapel where withered hand will be playing with cf cofounder/black tambourine lady/my dear friend pam berry: it’s in the daytime, it is free and it’s going to sound ace. what excuse could you possibly have to not be there? anyway, I don’t really have any birthday coming up soon but if you see any of these platters in the charity shop for cheap, pick me up one, okay? cheers mate. wh is also on the excellent fence label, whose co-owner kenny king creosote is interviewed in the new cf.
