Jane Weaver - 'The Silver Globe'
In the madrigal-strewn world of neo folk-psychedelia, the queen of drones holds court…
In this late teen decade, as green men are burnt, resources dwindle and naturalists plunder for authentic Englishness, the hunt for the grail-like Silver Globe continues.
Back in 2014, the story was first whispered; A mythical jaunt set to a motorik rhythm, played out in an overgrown forest of ideas: Jane Weaver’s ‘The Silver Globe’ was a conceptual delicacy – “a synth-ridden post-apocalyptic prog-pop opus based on tightly embroidered, non-linear recurring themes inspired by esoteric stories, cosmic imagery and re-filtered past experiences”.
Featuring tracks co-produced by David Holmes, guest appearances by Australian vintage space-rockers Cybotron, a recycled chunk of a Hawkwind track, an intricate Damon Gough guitar solo, some Suzanne Ciani waves and post production, plus remix flourishes by Andy Votel, ‘The Silver Globe’ is a shiny beautifully polished gem.
Now reissued in a limited-edition clear vinyl run with the existing artwork updated by Andy Votel, it is also being made available on CD in a card wallet so that this creative milestone can again be heard whatever your new age/old wave preference.
