about

PETER BLEGVAD
vocals, guitar, psaltery, harmonica, music box

JOHN GREAVES
recorder, synthesizer, talking drum, tapes

In 1977 Blegvad collaborated with bassist John Greaves on the album Kew. Rhone., an unusual cross-genre release combining elements of minimalism, avant-garde jazz and progressive rock. The album was also notable for its personnel, which included celebrated New York jazz musicians Carla Bley, Michael Mantler, and Andrew Cyrille among the performers. As a musical document Kew. Rhone. remains both ambitious and unclassifiable; Blegvad's literate and playful lyrics are well-matched by Greaves' complex song structures. Blegvad would later continue his collaboration with Greaves in 1995 on Unearthed, a collection of spoken word pieces set to Greaves' music.

Unearthed
A collection of strange stories recorded in May 1994 at On-Off Studios, Paris. John Greaves wrote all of the musical pieces except three, which were composed with Blegvad. These spoken word pieces are narrated and written by Mr. Blegvad. The stories are all very strange and often feel a bit like a particularly hallucinatory Edward Gorey story. The stories range from quite comical to extremely tragic. They would please any fan of the work of Ken Nordine, Joe Frank or Ivor Cutler. The backing music perfectly illuminates the sometimes disturbing and always vividly dreamlike tales Mr. B shares with us all.
