I’ve had a lot of requests for this one, so here you go. A Lonesome Town is a track from the recently released ATD16 – The Don mixtape, one of the few original productions on there, if you can call chopping up someone else’s song, speeding it up, and slapping a great honking breabeat over it “producing”. Which, I believe, you can. Hallelujah! While the song details growing up in North Wales, the inspiration came form Martin Carr‘s Goldrush ’49, which details growing up in the old west. That’s how ancient Martin is. A HAW!
The song is from Ey La Carr’s forthcoming LP, Ye Gods And Little Fishes (a phrase I used to overuse way back in ye ole day before Narstie’s “true stories” wormed it’s infectious way into my brain). The album is quite brilliant (I have heard it, I’m cool) and is being financed by The People, via Bandstocks. Basically, you hand over a tenner, and become a shareholder in the album, so when it comes out and is huge, you get rich. I think.
Here’s A Lonesome Town.
