Rokurokubi – Iris, Flower of Violence

Summat right weird happened with this one. The first song very nearly made me turn it off, I disliked it that much. But I didn’t turn it off, and the rest of the album was well good.

Actually, it ain’t weird. You can probably name a dozen examples yourself.

I believe that I have linked these people before and therefore the fact that I have now done so twice makes them proper good, it does. It’s folky but not hey-nonny nonny so (well, apart from maybe the first track). I see the word Acid Folk on their page and I’d like someone to tell me what that means. But it branches out too. Maybe that’s what the acid means. Acid is well known for branching out. I have one in my garden. Or is that a tree? I keep getting the two things confused. Easily done, I suppose.

I would beg your indulgence on the above incoherence as I am now back on site where I work after 16 months and a frozen shoulder at home, and being the first one back in this particular office is a little odd, but only a little. However, you would rightly point out that incoherence comes as standard around these parts, so I’m-a just gonna lean into it.
