Cock of the North

Described by Resident Advisor as a track that ‘snatches you out of the water’, Cock of the North appears on Smagghe & Cross’s new album MA (Offen Music). It’s a short prose piece about Tadcaster in the nineties. Certainly not a track for Blue Mondays but I think it’s turned out well considering the subject matter…

I recorded it at Air Edel in London last year with Ivan and Rupert. The original poem – Big Weekend – is taken from my poetry collection Dark Corners of the LandI’ve had a few emails about it since the record was released, sadly the book is out of print and in the hands of collectors.

There have been some great reviews – notably in Crack Magazine, The Quietus, Resident Advisor and Ransom Note.

You can listen to it on soundcloud or youtube. Or you can order a copy on vinyl here.
