This is Rozi - you may already know her and her music. She has been my buddy for years and we sometimes play music together. She has just released her 2nd album J O I N E D   S O M E T I M E S   U N J O I N E D and it is something very special, especially the vinyl edition that I have which I have had on heavy rotation oh yes. Here she is
and here is a marvelous new video made by James Haskins of Olo Worm
(note steel pan by Ichi)

This is Andy Skellam aka Spider Belly. Another music buddy of many years. A craftsman of many incredible songs and a procrastinator who sits on them. But I am patiently waiting for his album as I know it will be something very special. He will play at the Grain Barge in Bristol with Woodpecker Wooliams tomorrow - 25th October

This is Gemma Woodpecker aka Woodpecker Wooliams, a musical acquaintance who i`m yet to meet in person but who ICHI has played alongside, and who I know snippets of well from her glitchy new album THE BIRD SCHOOL OF BEING HUMAN. Playing with Spider Belly tomorrow (25th Oct) Grain Barge, Bristol

This is Roxy, a bristol musician who has morphed and evolved in many shapes and waves: Roxanne The Early Years, The World is Not Flat, Mountain Parade and the latest solo project Two White Cranes. She will tour in Japan this November with maverick guitarist Naoto Kawate. Here she is fronting Mountain Parade.
