Anyone who has ever attended a village market selling local products fears the amateur band fumbling their way through horrendous covers before a small crowd of relatives and friends. Not so at the Blackshaw Food Festival in Jack Bridge in West Yorkshire, where Colin Robinson of one-man project Jumble Hole Clough set up shop in front of the New Delight for a set of improvised prog guitar excursions.
Using just his guitar and an assorted array of gizmos and effects Robinson feels his way through the tracks, getting eerie and faerie when the mood strikes him (Jet-cure Kosher Salami) or serving up Robert Fripp inspired patterns (A Joule Cashmere Skirt). He gets a great tone overall, with just the right amount of echo and by foregoing any pre-recorded stuff Robinson's album is an album that will be embraced by fans of Markus Reuter and Marc Ribot.
