"Waffle Throne" by Golden Age of Steam

From the album

Label Love Vol. 5: The Jazz Edition (Basho Records) by Golden Age of Steam

Editor's Comments

Noir-ish is right. An intriguingly moody track that simmers with an offbeat tension. A cool and fun track, and one that pretty compels listeners to check out the rest of the album.

About the track

Somewhere, in the middle of nowhere, a dilapidated big top stands. Trudging through the rain towards it, a small orchestra is besieged by birds of paradise. Inside the tent an ill-fated clown juggles a selection of salamis (clubs pawned, loan sharks placated) accompanied by a knackered barrel organ and the purring of a cat with a megaphone. Backstage, a monstrously overweight stunt motorcyclist nervously contemplates gravity, whilst outside the bats are circling ever closer… Welcome to the atmospheric second album from The Golden Age of Steam. Album personnel: James Allsopp (reeds), Tim Giles (drums), and Kit Downes (organ), with guests: Ruth Goller (bass) and Alex Bonney (electronics/trumpet).
