Julian Cope presents Head Heritage

David Wrench/Black Sheep
Spades & Hoes & Plows

Available at last! Here’s David Wrench’s long awaited Black Sheep debut album SPADES & HOES & PLOWS. Commissioned by Julian Cope and Fat Paul, David Wrench here presents four long meditative performances of four historical insurrectionary songs: ‘A Radical Song’, ‘The Blackleg Miner’, ‘Digger’s Song’ and ‘Helyntion Beca’. Performed on overdriven Wurlitzer piano and Mellotron 400, and aided by Cope, Fat Paul and fellow Black Sheep Michael O’Sullivan, SPADES & HOES & PLOWS is a masterpiece of agrarian doom clodplod and futuristic English Civil War pre-enactment. Grab your copies and listen enthralled while the times of Edison are still upon us!
