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.

Lord Bassington-Bassington has long been on the lookout for style magazines to supplement his favourite publication The Chap. Modern style mags tend to be filled with, well, modern clothes, and let's not even get into the pointless interviews with random celebrities.
But lo and behold, help comes from Germany, and His Lordship has found a new magazine to paw through. The Heritage Times is an excellent German-language magazine which has also launched an English edition. And a revelation it is. Why don't all lifestyle magazines feature Lederhosen?
The latest issue has a lot of good stuff for the subculturally interested (such as a pretty solid piece on skinheads). But what really takes the Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte is a this most neofolky fashion shoot.
Copyright laws probably prohibit us here at the Chronicles from stealing the whole thing, but Lord Bassington-Bassington found it imperative to share this fabulous photo, which His Lordship likes to call "Darkwood in tandem with Sturmpercht".
Which, come to think of it, sounds like a great double bill, if it wasn't a bit impossible now that lead Percht Max has deserted neofolk for new adventures in Afro-funk. Which makes the skin tone of the model on the back of the bike even more appropriate.
So if you're looking for Lord Bassington-Bassington, he will be curled up on the sofa engrossed in The Heritage Post, to a soundtrack of… well, you guessed it!
Time to order some more issues of The Heritage Post soon. And perhaps some Afro-funk.
