BONNY BITCHIN’ BAJAS: COLLABORATION ANNOUNCED BETWEEN BITCHIN BAJAS’ AND BONNIE ‘PRINCE’ BILLY; INCOMING 18TH MARCH VIA DRAG CITY
An unlikely collaboration comes to pass, but one that makes so much sense upon consideration that you wonder why you hadn’t rioted for your right to experience this sooner.
Last year it was revealed that Bonny Prince Billy and Bitchin Bajas shall unite for an exclusive three day residency at Cafe Oto in London, and whilst the existence of recorded material has no doubt been speculated, its tangible existence has only now been confirmed…
Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy be in righteous and true collaboration on this one, flowing ideas through the air between them, which seems a rare thing in this age where records course forth without wires, pieced together out of the zeros and ones that divide and don’t define us. The air’s meant to be shared, and that’s how Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties came to pass. These guys get each other.
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties contains moments of tranquility and trance, with the players integrating their separate ways, vibing off each other, making songs happen together. Bonny is at his spirit-melting celestial best wandering through a lifetime of fortunes that amount, when incanted, to a prayer to the god of many names. The Bajas’ access to the universal aural paintbox is unparalleled; and their reach is deep.
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties is simple and stark, empyrean and inspirational…pretty modal, too – probably never more than three chords – as Bonny and the Bajas pursue the life of the spirit down ever-fading vapour trails, in a bottomless space. Bajas and Bonnie Billy are set to enter your airwaves on March 18th, so be ready…
