I've been introduced to a ton of new music through this forum.

Have been listening to Nothing Important all week. It really is incredible.

Thank you.

The Vile Stuff is the best song I’ve heard in years. Amazing song.

it's truly original, in the sense that it cannot be replicated. anyone who tried to do that would lose. the music maintains control. he is just the conduit. it shouldn't work, but it does. just like jimi hendrix.

CN Well, folk music is for the layman isn’t it?

RD That’s why when you get it eventually you go, “Oh! This is alive.” It’s about sharing songs and there being no weight of the self, just all about being part of something larger, part of a community. The singing group at The Cumberland Arms changed my perception, just hearing all kinds of singers, from very the accomplished—and I use that word very guardedly—to those who would struggle to hold a tune, but who were invariably the better singers. They had amazing wobbly voices and cracks and were getting the words wrong, but that was always the most fascinating stuff to hear in those sessions and always the most full of heart. I wonder if it just to do with confidence. Why don’t more people sing with their funny voices? It’s a mystery. There’s a guy who sings at The Cumberland called Joe and he’s got a really round voice like little boulders. He’s got this song he wrote about how much he loves cheese. He’s a real beautiful guy, very gentle, but tough as well. He doesn’t take any shit. He sings this song: “I’m a man who loves cheese,” and it’s so hard to even discern the words he’s mumbling so much. It’s the best. (laughter)

Recent convert here: I heard him playing live on 6Music around the time that 'Peasant' came out and was instantly fascinated. Bought the album and then got hold of everything I could by him. Fantastic stuff. Peasant is probably my favourite.
Would jump at the chance to see him play live.

He's wholly committed. That'll do nicely.

Watched this video last Monday. By Thursday I had two of his albums in my hands. Listened to them all weekend. Great stuff!

Anyone have a clue what album the first song in that video is on?

I’m into it. Reminds me of Mt Eerie or Karl Blau, but more complex.

It’s Judas Iscariot, first track on Nothing Important.

LOVE

I’ve been half-expecting to hear some bang-chug rock from him since the day I read he was in a metal band before he picked up the parlor guitar. The day has come.

Also, I’m ready to send him to the London Marathon. Where do I click?

My first ever ‘release’ was on a cassette compilation with my teenage Pavement ripoff band. Richard’s teenage Faith No More ripoff band were on it too

Recent interview on Radio 4's 'The Voices of...' from last week. (I'm sure people outside the UK have the low cunning needed to access it)
