Tribute to Venus Carmichael

Tape #9

Leave a comment


Venus herself seems to contact us in mysterious ways. She still has her associates in Edinburgh – in particular, a former clothes shop owner known in her blog only as Farrago Man – and, every so often, a cassette tape arrives at Kelly’s house with some songs. Recorded in what sounds like rudimentary conditions on acoustic guitar, they’re not on any of her records, but the voice is unmistakeable.

We like to think these unmarked packages of cassette tapes mean she’s had word back about us, and she approves enough to give her some of her unreleased material.

Wherever you are, Venus, thanks, peace and love!

The latest tape – with ten all new songs – arrived just before Xmas. It’s marked ‘Tape #9,’ as you’ll see from the picture. So far, we’ve had Tapes # 1, 4, 5 and now 9…

We hope to do justice to some of these new songs, both live and in the studio, as soon as we can.
