Chris Wood - Ceasar (Uncivilised Version)

from by Various Uncivilised Artists

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    From the Mourning of the World is a unique compilation album brought to you by the Dark Mountain Project, the global network of artists, musicians and writers who are crafting new stories for a civilisation in trouble.

    Featuring: an exclusive alternate version of Caesar recorded specially for the album by BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2011, Chris Wood; BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2010 Jon Boden; celebrated artists such as Chris T-T and Bethia Beadman (whose track is a duet with REM’s Mike Mills); this is a beautiful compilation of the wild and uncivilised music associated with the Dark Mountain Project.

    Through our IndieGogo crowdfunding page we managed to raise just under £3000 of the £5000 we need to create this beautiful album on vinyl. If you order a copy you will receive the download immediately but the vinyl might be a few months behind. We have a number of fundraising gigs planned as well as selling copies through this bandcamp page so you should have your copy by the end of the summer.

    Thank you for supporting our first venture into creating an album!

about

Written after the Parliamentary expenses scandal, my naivety had me believing this song would soon cease to be topical. My background is in Folk music. How far back this goes I do not know, certainly no further than our pastoralist version of civilisation but the urge to unriddle the universe in a few lines of song goes back perhaps to the very beginning. It seems nothing can shake me from feeling that the greatest songwriter of them all is Anon. Chris Wood: April 2013
