John Cratchley One of Dylan's early forays into the world of Albion (of which he is knowledgeable and informed)...he's an Anglofile apparently...some great Carlson 'guitaristry' and the Hackney Lass adds a layer of mystery...a curio, in the best sense.

‘Modern English Folklore Vol.1: Hackney’ is the second release in the ongoing drcarlsonalbion project, begun by Dylan Carlson of Earth. It reflects his longstanding interest in the occult folklore and history of the United Kingdom and his abiding love for all things British.

The first release, ‘Edward Kelley’s Blues’ b/w ‘Drunk on Angelspeech’ for cassette-only label The Tapeworm, comprised spectral environmental recordings from the area around Waterloo Station, a former haunt of magicians and alchemists in the early modern era, and the site of one of Dylan’s own encounters with ‘spiritual creatures’. That release focused on Dr John Dee and, more importantly, his much-maligned scryer/medium, Edward Kelley. This second instalment uses ancient myth and occult lore, updated to the present-day Borough of Hackney in London’s East End.

This is a double 7” on The Wormhole, a byproduct of The Tapeworm. Catalogued as WHO#01. The second disc features instrumental tracks. Also available as a DRC digital download featuring two remixes exclusive to this format. “England, oh, perfidious England, as the ramparts of its seas were inaccessible to the Romans, there also the faith of Christ is kept at bay.”
