  • Richard Dawson - Jogging live at ALICE Cph, Copenhagen 20200131

    8:02

    Richard Dawson is known for his idiosyncratic guitar style, his black-humoured songwriting and his intense live performances. His 2017-album ‘Peasant’ was widely praised as one of the most original takes on moderne English folk. An album tat gave a voice to the citizens of the ancient early medieval northern kingdom of Bryneich via a set of narratives as bawdy as Chaucer and as epic and bloody as Beowulf. With the follow-up, ‘2020’, Richard Dawson switches the focus with equally stunning results. The album is an utterly contemporary state-of-the-nation study, that uncovers an equally tumultuous and even bleaker time. With a highly personal mix of folk song, weird synths, avant-guitar and surprisingly catchy pop choruses, Dawson has created an album full of character studies so rich that one could call it a musical equivalent to Balzac’s ‘La Comédie humaine’. Funny, tragic and grotesque. The album has already received rave reviews. The Guardian wrote: “2020 is a reminder of the need for basic decency in a country that is forgetting it, voiced by the most brilliant and humane songwriter working here today.”

    Previous visits to Denmark - such as his solo shows at Jazzhouse and his concert at Roskilde Festival in 2018 - has shown Richard Dawson as an extraordinary performer. At ALICE he will perform in a trio line-up and no doubt it will be equally intense.

  • Richard Dawson - We Picked Apples In A Graveyard Freshly Mowed

    6:21

    There is something beautifully unsettling about Richard Dawson’s music and lyrics, as he, with his falsetto voice and rattling guitar, creates music that is built upon remnants of folk music yet never really fits entirely in that box. Dawson’s songs have a spiritual edge to them as if they’re part of the hymn book of an ancient, forgotten religion from Newcastle in England where he’s spent most of his life - and it makes sense why Dawson calls it “ritual community music”.

    We met Dawson at the hotel he was staying at in Copenhagen and recorded this session in his room. He performs “We Picked Apple In A Graveyard Freshly Mowed” from his 2011 album “The Magic Bridge”.

    Lyrics:

    I really should have buffed my shoes before I arrived here.
    My hair is a flock of hay.

    I cannot breathe, I cannot seem to make polite conversation.
    The broach you're wearing is shaped like a horseshoe, the stone set within contains a fly.

    Amber was always a favorite of mine, must have cost you a fortune.
    Oh, how impolite of me!.

    I cannot breathe, I cannot seem to make polite conversation.
    Green ginger wine is a very fine tipple. The holes in my shoes are healing over.

    You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
    Howl you may, you'll remain the same.

    I cannot breathe, I cannot seem to make polite conversation.
    You are so beautiful, you make me feel so small, I could fit into the small of your back.

    Make love to me, make love to me, but first let me change my shoes.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
