Being a record of the ruminations, ramblings and obsessions of a Hound of the noblest breed (or so His Lordship claims, anyway). The focus being on dark music and culture, style, spirituality and - naturally – Basset Hounds.
Welcome to the chronicles of Lord Bassington-Bassington, coming to you from Little Storping in the Swuff – a quaint place located somewhere between England’s Lake District and the outskirts of the Norwegian capital.
This is intended as a log of His explorations of music, books, films and so on. I, your humble chronicler, is merely His Lordship’s secretary.
For more information on Lord Bassington-Bassington, please confer this blog’s opening post. Contacts can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a great fondness for New York-based neofolk outfit Cult of Youth here at the Chronicles. So we couldn't resist the temptation to tell our readers about Cult of Youth's new 12 inch EP, Filthy Plumage in an Open Sea!, released just now on Italian label Avant! records (from whose MySpace page we stole these pictures).
Cult of Youth continue to deliver punky, industrial-tinged neofolk, with an energy an enthusiasm that is hard to resist for anyone with the slightest interest in the genre. And as can be seen from this video from a small performance at Los Angeles' Vacation Vinyl, they also appear to be a terrific live act.
