Italian Neofolk: The Green Man

They've been mentioned in passing here at the Chronicles before, but The Green Man fit perfectly into our little series on Italian neofolk.

The Green man represent neofolk at its most hippy, perhaps even its most trippy, and use themes borrowed from such bottomless sources as the writings of Aleister Crowley and the film The Wicker Man. We here at Bassington Manor are especially taken with their stage props. Nice sun banner, isn't it?

Visit their MySpace page for more sounds, pictures and information. We here at Bassington Manor are planning to order their records.


  1. They are a lovely bunch of talented people.

  2. Hm, I have never heard of this group before. They have an interesting sound indeed.

    The video is very enjoyable, and I like the map imagery, being a collector of maps myself.

  3. I've only heard their first album, but have just ordered their second release!

    Oooh - a map collection? Sounds intriguing!
