Notes

This debut release on his own 30 Hertz label finds Wobble turning musical gaze from English transcendentalism (as explored on last years acclaimed album "The Inspiration of William Blake") to a gritty Celtic romanticism. If you can imagine Samuel Beckett, Miles Davies and the Kodo drummers jamming together in Lee Scratch Perry's basement studio you're coming close to the sound of his album. Guaranteed to outrage purists (again!), as much it delights everyone else, The Celtic Poets focuses on a more contemporary group of writers than are perhaps familiar — Louis MacNeice, Brendan Kennelly and the infamous Shane MacGowan — all memorably orated by Ronnie Drew of The Dubliners.
