The 16th Uncut Playlist Of 2008

I'm just playing an old record by the great folk/psych/raga guitarist Peter Walker, who has recently returned to action after nearly 40 years of, as far as I can tell from a quick circuit round the internet, practising flamenco guitar. Amazingly, Walker - one of the few survivors of John Fahey's generation of American primitives, and the man who provided musical accompaniment to Timothy Leary's early experiments - is playing just down the road from me in Dalston, North-East London tonight.

I’m just playing an old record by the great folk/psych/raga guitarist Peter Walker, who has recently returned to action after nearly 40 years of, as far as I can tell from a quick circuit round the internet, practising flamenco guitar. Amazingly, Walker – one of the few survivors of John Fahey‘s generation of American primitives, and the man who provided musical accompaniment to Timothy Leary‘s early experiments – is playing just down the road from me in Dalston, North-East London tonight.



The venue is a promising new place called Cafe Oto, which has a fantastic list of forthcoming gigs. I’ll report back tomorrow, obviously.

In the meantime, here’s the latest Uncut playlist. The Comus is a highly enjoyable bootleg of their recent reunion gig onboard a Scandinavian ferry at a festival curated by Opeth, bizarrely. It features one of the weirdest of acid-folk bands trying to play “Venus In Furs” while the staggeringly drunk audience bellow along enthusiastically. Must have been fun, if you have sea legs.
