Episode 30 features the music and words of SJ Downes, a musician that has traveled to 5 Never Records installations around the world. In 2011 we released an album of tracks that we recorded in Liverpool, Derry, and London. We made 10 copies only and of course sold out of the edition immediately. Why make an edition so small? In this world of disposable technology, where music can be downloaded with ease, we wanted to make objects that represented the rare and sacred value of our collaboration and friendship.
All songs performed by SJ Downes:
How Long written by Frank Stokes
Lonesome Road based on Snook Eaglin Version
Death Don’t Have No Mercy written by Reverend ‘Blind’ Gary Davis
