it has been awhile….

extensive touring since september has led me to neglect my blog of late, hope to get back in the swing of things. earth toured australia, new zealand and japan, and drcarlsonalbion toured the uk in october, beginning in colchester and ending at supersonic in birmingham, went as far north as aberdeen, scotland. thanks to everyone who came out to the show and sorry the merchandise was not available till after the tour. the hackney lass double 7″ was available, and now 2 remixes (as it is ‘modern folklore’) through touch and the la strega and the cunning-man in the smoke is available  through southern records. one other track featuring the hackney lass appeared on a cassette compilation commemorating the 400th anniversary of the pendle witch trials. earth then completed a us tour in november, and i was in the studio making a soundtrack to a german ‘western’ titled ‘gold’ directed by thomas arslan which will premiere february 9th at the berlin film festival. work begins in earnest on the coleman grey project, the may release date will probably be pushed back a bit, but there are no earth tours planned for 2013, though will be recording new album, also hopefully some new drcarlsonalbion ones as well. drcarlsonalbion.com is now a domain and website as well. courtesy of the fine work of karla lemus. it also links to to earth and coleman grey info. and will eventually contain much more. all the best as we dig ourselves out from the apocalyptic residue of 2012 and move into 2013. drcalbion

    Excited about your projects. Sourkraut-Western will be a new film and music genre! I just got several LP’s by Dave Swarbrick (who needs no introduction) including “Swarbrick 2” which contains “The Fairy Dance” and “The King of the Fairies”, among other vigorous and delicate tunes native to the Isles played on the fiddle in his consumate style, which of course made me think of this blog.

    Since you have expressed enthusiasm for Squier guitars on twitter (I’m holding out joining for now), and your expertise at playing low and slow is legend, you should know that Squier is releasing a Bass VI soon:
