David Brown & James Clayden - Plant Hunting In Japan LP
David Brown and James Clayden started playing together in the late '70s in the experimental band Ad Hoc. In the following years, Clayden concentrated on making experimental films and videos, while Brown has made a name for himself in outfits such as Dumb & The Ugly, Lazy, Bucketrider, Pateras/Baxter/Brown and countless others. Plant Hunting... is a collection of tracks from various operattas the two have been involved with in recent years, with Brown on guitar, vocals and various instruments and Clayden on libretto, vocals and accordion. Like a combination of Neil Young, Robert Wyatt and Tom Waits, this is remarkable, stripped-back songcraft from two veterans. In an edition of 300 copies.
