Aphex-Twin-Computer-Controlled-Acoustic-Instruments-Pt-2

Give the Drummer and Pianist Some

Richard D. James exiled his popular Aphex Twin persona into near-silence following the release of Drukqs in 2001.

The Rails – Fair Warning

The-Rails-Fair-Warning

Folk Rock Renewal and Pink Labels

The story of this release has been one of British folk rock royalty and revivals of rare record labels and musical genres. These things underlie the beautiful harmonies and guitar work of husband-and-wife team Kami Thompson and James Walbourne on their recently released record, Fair Warning. The release represents something of a revival of the British folk rock style made popular by Kami Thompson’s parents, Richard and Linda Thompson. Think back to the days of Fairport Convention and you get an idea of the kind of pressure laid on this pair. They are most certainly not seeking to fill her parent’s shoes, but rather to do their due diligence to continue to keep this music vibrant. After all, pop music tends to be the dominant force in the British music industry. Who can forget the era of the Spice Girls and other pop ensembles? In the face of that culture, you could argue that Thompson and Walbourne are doing God’s work.
