The Nihil Project – Plough Plays CDr


Only 1 left in stock



The Nihil Project is an open collective devoted to psychedelia, musical experimentation and artistic avantgarde who have released two albums to date. They are based on a core duo of Antonello Cresti and Andrea Gianessi from Italy. They collaborate with a wide range of artists and on this album have worked with a number of musicians from Britain such as the ex-Blossom Toes Brian Godding, Sedayne, The Anvil, Gav Dunn, The Kitchen Cynics, Orph and LSD from Electronic Voice Phenomena and Simon Lewis of The Phoenix Cube. The album title comes from our shared love of the informal, rough plough plays in January still performed in the East Midlands. Performers drawn from the population, hidden by guises telling ancient scripts they cannot know the primitive sources of. We couldn’t imagine a more fitting concept. On this album they focus on British folk music and folklore interweaving their own songs and lyrics with traditional sources. The band is fascinated by folklore and folk customs, Antonello visits the UK regularly and has written a book about England and Wales. So they are well placed to make an album almost custom designed to appeal to all psychedelic folk fans. Their music is based on folk but is deeply psychedelic and also incorporates space electronics. This CDR is limited to 150 copies, packaged in jewel cases.
