We receive many many emails and tea-chests of goodies (and baddies) here at Dontblog Towers. Here is the content of an email received from the brilliantly bonkers and superbly monickered alternative indie-folk project, The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse. How fucking brilliant is that name !! We do do nutty so well here in Scotland.
How be yourself? Thought I might introduce myself and throw you a copy of my latest collection of songs entitled ‘Squawk!’ which was released yesterday. Myself is The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse, a one man band of sorts, although I often perform with one or two trusty backing hooves called The Wat Wat Kings. I’m based out west in a tiny village called Strathcarron, one of the Wat Wat’s is also from Strathcarron, the other is from Ardelve.
Myself and one of my backing hooves made a music video up on the Bealach Na Ba a couple weeks ago, it was a real no-budget effort, no film crew, just a camcorder on a tripod that we moved around and a mobile phone in a cereal bowl as our sound system.
