Bonnie 'Prince' Billy releases with "Pond Scum" a nice collection of his Peel Sessions recordings!
After the success of the wonderful "Singer's Grave A Sea Of Tongues", which was released in 2015, Will Oldham aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has a surprise in store for us again. This comes in the form of "Pond Scum", a compilation of sessions for the legendary BBC Radio DJ John Peel, recorded between 1994 and 2002 at London's Maida Vale Studios.
"'Pond Scum' now combines songs from 1993 and 1995 as well as from the time around the turn of the millennium. Historical pearls, arranged in a reduced manner, crowned by Will's quirky mumbling dumpling voice." (Audio, March 2016)
"You can hear Bonnie-Prince-Billy-- Classics like "I Was Drunk At The Pulpit" or "Death To Everyone" in intimate raw versions, that every sobbing, every brittleness in the singing voice." (Good Times, April / May 2016)
