about

For the seventh Betwixt & Between we’re changing the format a little. In place of another solo outing, Jacken is appearing as one member of the Shovel Dance Collective, a newly formed group of nine musicians exploring the folk traditions of these islands (and beyond). While nurturing the history of the source material, the collective brings to it sensibilities drawn from drone, improvisation, and metal. In so doing, they aim to uncover proto-feminist narratives and queer histories, and to make heard the voices of the working people that created and create the wealth of the world.

On the other side we’re honoured to be joined by C Joynes as this edition’s contributing artist. Cambridge-based Joynes will be well known to many, as the master of a magpie approach to fingerpicking English parlour guitar. Recently leading C Joynes & The Furlong Bray, an ensemble featuring Dead Rat Orchestra, Cam Deas and Nick Jonah Davis, or working alongside dbh, Gavin Clarke, and Andrew Cheetham as Waterless Hills, Joynes is appearing solo here with an electrifying live set.

The Betwixt & Between 7 mascot is the chimaera: a hybrid and amalgamated creature of Greek mythology, mother of the sphinx and the Nemean lion, slain by Bellerophon and Pegasus. The cover image is a linocut after a plate in the Monstrorum historia by Ulisse Aldrovandi, while the companion print is inspired by marginalia in the Ormesby Psalter.

Shovel Dance Collective are Alex McKenzie, Daniel S. Evans, Fidelma Hanrahan, Jacken Elswyth, Joshua Barfoot, Mataio Austin Dean, Nick Granata, Oliver Hamilton, and Tom Hardwick-Allan. Their side was recorded in October 2020 in Fidelma’s living room, engineered and mixed by Mike O’Malley.

The C Joynes side was recorded live in October 2019 at the Lost Arc in Rhayader.

Mastered by Rupert Clervaux at Cala Deia.
