"I can show you where, in the desert of winter, the wind-hover fell for the last time. Can show you how flies and maggots gently prized flesh from bone. How the delicate globe of its skull, which once held the sky and six square miles of vole-earth, was, in turn, mapped and charted by beetles. Buried."
"In assuming death I have witnessed countless atrocities. In the fields. By the roadside. The verges of woods. I have heard a music and it is delirious. Centuries are as seconds, seconds as centuries."
From 'Beyond the Fell Wall' by Richard Skelton, published by Little Toller Books.

Richard created something very new here: this music is futuristic & synth-like, but has a warmth, movement & lightness that's still ethereal. I never would guess it was him, but quite like it: change & artist growth is a good thing! Those fans of his more typical earthly bowed scraping intensity, piano chord punctuations and songs of place, do not be afraid of the changed sound palette here. I like this visit to Vega and can't wait to hear more of this direction if he choses to take us there. Joe Borreson
