Adam Scovell curates the Celluloid Wicker Man blog which collates his own writings and film work which include a number of super 8 productions to be found at Celluloid Wicker Man Films. Adam’s passions include Folk Horror, Landscape in Film and Literature, Film Music And Sound Analysis, British Art House and Cult Cinema. He has also written on Hauntology themes.
The Menhir Motorway is Adam’s first film for 2016. It is a super-8 looking at the Ballard-scapes found on the peninsula of The Wirral, specifically in Wallasey. It examines the links between the urban menhir known as Grannies Rock and the nearby motorway’s concrete labyrinths and pathways. The film’s music is by In Atoms from Liverpool and it is voiced by Paul Carmichael. It is the first in a planned series of shorts looking at neglected, liminal spaces. Watch another Adam Scovell short film Salthouse Marshes also featuring the music of In Atoms

The Assistant is Oliver Cherer. “Gristleizer” is the just released 12. The Delusions of Adequacy (thanks) review of the track had this to say about “Gristleizer”: “…certainly a leap away from the more playful BBC Radiophonic Orchestra stylings of The Assistant’s first release. Combining shadowy mechanised-voodoo percussion with swarming insect synth sounds, there are strong echoes of the industrial clank of Throbbing Gristle and the sci-fi horror scores of John Carpenter films in the track’s hypnotic entrancement…”
The Assistant appears on the Polytechnic Youth label established in 2014 to release music that is: “library sounds, electronic experiments in kosmische, primitive electronics and as a soundtrack to physical education – a micro label for vinyl heads”.

Rabbit Island is one of the musical journeys of Amber Fresh.
The View From Here is an RTRFM special project to produce a series of films capturing live and intimate performances by West Australian acts in a variety of unique locations.
Recently Rabbit Island did a View From Here performance recorded in the basement of the legendary local family run continental shop The Re Store in Leederville – home of many amazing food journeys. Its a beautiful performance and made even more so as she is joined by Nicholas Allbrook and some of his special sounds.
Filmed by Sam Price and Lewis Potts, Produced by Chris Wheeldon, Sound engineering & mixing by Adrian Sardi. With a big thanks to Moreno and Nick at The Re Store.

P.S. After listening to these recent performances I remembered that Amber and Mei both played at the very first ever Golden Apples of the Sun event at The Bird back way in 2011. We have not had one since – I need to get onto that – I had to look around very carefully to find the poster but I found it eventually.

Front & Follow present White Flowers, the debut album from Lutine. The album reflects a shared love of traditional folk and modern classical, distorted through a lens of medieval and baroque music, traditional Indian and Chinese music, dream/synth pop, minimalism, experimental music and 60s/70s folk. Both familiar and uncanny (inspired equally by Thomas Hardy and The Twilight Zone), Heather and Emma have produced a startling set of songs exploring classic themes in a unique and bewitching way.
Front and Follow present Died of Love a new collection from Lutine, featuring reinterpretations of their 2014 album White Flowers. Lutine combine vocal harmonies with delicate instrumentation on a mixture of original and traditional folk songs. Their debut album ‘White Flowers’ was released in 2014 through Front & Follow. Lutine are Heather Minor and Emma Morton, brought together by a shared love of traditional folk and modern classical, distorted through a lens of medieval and baroque music, traditional Indian and Chinese music, dream/synth pop, minimalism, experimental music and 60s/70s folk.

This sound journey is a true audio bell curve commencing with the vinyl crackle of dust from the nettles style original British acid folk, some US Espers-esque psych folk and prairie modern from Meg Baird and Speck Mountain…the show then meanders through the hazy electronica of Noveller, Lutine and Haelos heading towards a single epic extended high through 20 minutes of a most (in)famous Nurse With Wound and Stereolab collaboration. Over the bell curve and new West Coast meets East Coast from Heron Oblivion and finally some crystalline lo-fi timeless moments from the Golden Apples archives of 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Watch this stunning Nurse With Wound video….and think of it as 20 minute Golden Apples trailer….
