Ayers, Kevin - The Unfairground

SKU 23-LO-MAX024
"2007 release of the first album in 15 Years from the pioneer of British psychedelia and it's a corker! The sessions include contributions from artists Ayers has inspired, like Teenage Fanclub, Bill Wells (of the Bill Wells Trio), Euros Childs (from Gorkys Zygotic Mynci) and Francis Reader (of Trash Can Sinatras). Characters from Ayers' past also participated, including Robert Wyatt on "Cold Shoulder") and Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera (on "Brainstorm"), Soft Machine's Hugh Hopper (on "Unfairground") and folk singer Bridget St. John (who duets on "Baby Come Home", the first time the two have recorded together since Ayers' 1970 album "Shooting at the Moon")."

"A raft of affection buoyed the former Soft Machine man's first album in 15 years, numerous pals and admirerers contributing to what Ayers called "people-to-people music that goes well with wine." It's a fine vintage with strings, brass and notes of bucolic folk."-Mojo best of the year award, 2007 - placing at #46

"In a recent interview, Kevin Ayers said that he'd basically been "gone fishing" since the early '90s - and that he hoped this new release would stir up enough interest in his back catalog that he could now afford 'the really good bait.'"
