Stuart revisits the eccentric Scottish cult artist’s bizarre and beautiful 1974 album Dandruff. A blend of surreal and sometimes sinister short stories, poems and dead pan humour accompanied by wheezing harmonium. Before his death in 2006, the legendary Ivor Cutler was an absolute favourite of John Peel, he appeared in the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour film as well as being a teacher, poet and children’s author. The Dandruff album was his debut release after signing to the then-radical and left field Virgin Records.
Plus, Belgian avant RnB, Anglo-Rwandan experimental pop, hard new Chicago jazz and searing industrial electronics paired with drill from the likes of Juicy, Auclair, Chad Taylor Trio, Faust, and Blackhaine.
