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.

While Foresta di Ferro is not strictly an Italian project (Richard Leviathan of Ostara, who also participates in the project, is certainly no Italian...) there is no doubt that the driving force behind FdF is Como-based Marco Deplano. Which makes Foresta di Ferro ideal for our little series on Italian neofolk.
While Mr. Deplano is also the leather clad head honcho behind power electronics outfit Wertham, Foresta di Ferro have dabbled in many styles of post-industrial music, and released a small string of nice records. This little ditty is from their split double seven inch with Novy Svet, Bulli E Pupe, and Lord Bassington-Bassington, who owns all of Foresta di Ferro's other releases, was moved to venture onto Discogs.com to secure a copy of this release.
