In Praise of Peppercorn IP: 18.104.22.168 Posted on March 26, 2017 at 10:14:19 PM by ageing ted
These gentlemen are Brian Rudd and Ian Peppercorn, Martin's old bandmates in Gypp. They made some recent music as Trash Humanica that I was keen to hear. As their CD and EP sadly do not seem to be available on the open market at present, I appealed directly to Ian who came through brilliantly. Not only did he supply Moon Palace and Kiss Like a Thorn, he also located (at God knows what personal effort) both JarMusic Gypp CDs, which are every bit as elusive as the Trash Humanica discs! Cheers, Ian! Perhaps Martin can get you up on Bandcamp. This is too good to languish in obscurity.
This ought to get you the Dave Hoser video of Kiss From a Thorn, which is a rare opportunity to sample this marvelous music.
