"the old straight track"

Stovepony Records wcmf002

Welcome, friends to the strange and wonderful world of The Artist Currently Known As ONIONS. Whether you're an existing appreciator of his work, someone who's heard the buzz and has become intrigued, or just a surfer who's happened by on a vegetable based mission, it maybe wouldn't hurt to know more. So here's the skinny...

Having had an itinerant childhood, based for the most part in Hong Kong and Chichester, our man Onions has travelled a strange, turbulent and meandering path, taking in rock, electro, industrial, punk, blues, psych and folk, embracing the rave, free festival and busking scenes. He has had hit singles in Spain, made countless TV appearances and played major UK and

European tours, eventually taking three years off to disappear into the colourful world of goat-herding on the Mediterranean island of Gozo, absorbing mystery trails and discovery of the outer limits and esoteric tunings. This brings us neatly to his present day explorations in past present and future musics.

At his hands you will hear the sounds of Southern swamps, Moroccan mountains, sweeping desert plains, drawing in influences from all corners of the Globe, and the people that live there, all the while rooted in the mysteries and histories of his beloved English landscape.

The album The Old Straight Track is a travelogue of his years spent adjusting and realigning himself to a world outside of rock hedonism, recorded over the past year in various sessions with the likes of Chuck E Peru (Florida/Morton Valence) and Chris Clarke (Rockingbirds/Alan Tyler/Horse Latitudes). We hope you'll like it and think you will and, if you do, that you will let us know. Indeed, even if you don't, please tell us. Onions has broad shoulders!
