Originally released in 2006, featuring Rob Mullender, Wooden Spoon, Ladywoodsman, and The Eidetic Band -- each given one side of an LP. Free London is a split double LP (heavyweight vinyl), of four bands/musicians from London's improvised folk music scene. LP1: Wooden Spoon is seeking to create a music free from the influence of the contemporary world, to evoke some kind of state of pastoral introspection at once joyful and sad. Influenced by the Takoma school of guitar players, Popol Vuh and folk music from around the world. Rob Mullender presents some solo acoustic pieces that owe much to heroes of the English guitar in Jansch, Renbourn and others. Mullender also spent some time woodshedding with Davey Graham. His music is rife with delicate wonderings that edge towards a freer conception of folk music. LP2: Eidetic Band works throughout the different musical diagrams, those both fictional and unreal (the names of folk, noise, drone, jazz etc.) -- traditions which inform ways of feeling, playing and showing with sounds. They are interested in exploring each in neverending turn, feeling each sound more and more deeply. Ladyswoodsman is the London-based duo of Luke Garwood (aka Duke Garwood) and Paul May. Using a variety of different instruments from guitars and clarinets to all kinds of percussion in the creation of improvisations that ignite the imagination. Some of the tracks have a down-home folky feel, while others could find themselves happily nestling amongst the free jazz greats of the late '60s.
