Australian acid-folk maverick Howard Eynon (Earth Recordings) is making his way to the UK and EU for the first time this November/December, after supporting Wreckless Eric at a few shows, will be playing a free show here at South on Saturday 12th December at 2pm
Howard’s one and only album ‘So What If I’m Standing In Apricot Jam’ was originally released in 1974 and became one of the rarest and most sought after acid-folk records. The album is a bizarre and wonderful folk treasure in the vein of wild-eyed geniuses such as Syd Barrett, Kevin Ayers, Neil Innes or Nick Drake, although perhaps even more beautiful and mysterious. It’s certainly more unusual, with its colloquial lyrics, acerbic wit and Howard’s Anglo-Australian accented singing voice.
“His Anglo-Austrailian twang gifting another level of weirdness.. Eynon displays percussive Richie-Havens esque guitar talents to the full” Record Collector
