really excited about this : ] .. in late 2012 i released an EP_  set against the desolate backdrop of the end of Autumn, ‘From November’ is an invocation for the re-emergence of all that is dormant… “despite the cold, through the leaves the light will warm us again”

Lee Chapman has done some stunningly atmospheric remixes of my original tracks and we’ll be releasing a limited edition 100 tapes of the split EP via Unknown Tone Records

FROM NOVEMBER TO MARCH PRESS RELEASE

 

b&g menufirstly – just to clarify (seeing as many many people have been misled by the name) – it’s a web series; about a delusional chef (Jason Gàsh. that’s “gahhhsh” not gash) who opens a roadside cafe (a.k.a. a hatch in his caravan) attempting to run it as a high class establishment. his sous-chef is an aspiring grime MC with similar delusions of grandeur. there’s an awkward, unresolved love triangle and a visiting lorry spotter  – retired, aspergic (in this case – obliviously over enthusiastic) and American.

ok, so anyway it’s basically where i’ve been hiding all November –

a friend, Adam Mondon, came up with the original idea in October and since then a small team of us have spent countless hours locked in small rooms – script-writing, auditioning, rehearsing, scouring eBay for cheap caravans and stalking potential lay-bys on google maps.

In fact the pilot episode has just been released so rather than word it all up i’ll just embed it here.. see you in 10

a big part of the last month was spent working out what to do for theme music for the show.. i contemplated composing something classical sounding and interspersing it with some grimier undertones, dub beats etc but in the end though that might have been a bit obvious .. i decided to go for something a bit more subtle, something more closely related to Jason’s delusional and pretentious character. namely: a pseudo-operatic Italian 3 part vocal harmony that would sound fairly aristocratic/pretentious until closer inspection revealed the true and ridiculous nature of it’s lyrics ;]

         dal freddo di un frigo si trova formaggio trascurato 
         [in the cold of a fridge lies neglected cheese]
         e dal bordo della strada la salsiccia urla di aiuto!
         [..and by the side of the street the sausage cries for help]
         ma chi li aiutera? ma chi li aiutera? 
         [but who will help them? but who will help them?]
 
         salvatore di cucine, redentore di ristoranti
         [saviour of kitchens, redeemer of restaurants]
         protettore delle uve, eroe archetipico 
         [protector of grapes, archetypal hero]
         l’uomo chiamato Gàsh, l’uomo chiamato Gàsh
         [the man named Gàsh, the man named Gàsh]
 

I was also responsible for recording the sound on set + designing the website, menu (a haute cuisine take on stereotypical roadside food)  and poster (featuring by a beautiful illustration by Karla Alcázar)
