Belbury Poly

The Belbury Tales

Label Ghost Box Genre Electronic Cat no. gbx016cd


Belbury Poly on their 4th album spin some tall tales across a concept album in the tradition of British prog rock. Along the way it takes in medievalism, the supernatural, childhood, the re-invention of the past, initiation and pilgrimage(both spiritual and physical). The Belbury sound is here augmented by guest musicians Jim Musgrave on drums and Christopher Budd on Bass & Electric Guitar. The fourth full-length album from Jim Jupp's past-haunted electronic eccentrics is a beautiful, eerie thing - a piped gateway to false memories of a time when the benevolent nation state commissioned young men to re-score English folk songs with government issue analogue synthesisers.
