Stano – Content To Write In I Dine Weathercraft
Content To Write In I Dine Weathercraft is an iconic chronicle of Irish post punk. The debut solo album of John Denver Stanley, or Stano, a former member of The Threat, it was recorded in Dublin’s Alto studio, a historied den of national lore and natural reverb that became the perfect container for these songs. His method was collaborative and improvised, drawing as much on the influence and mastery of traditional song writing as musique concrète. These expansive, experimental songs feature fabled busker Michael O’Shea's hand built Mo Chara (a 17-string zither type instrument with pick-ups); emotive, hands-on drum machine use; spoken word vocals and glacial grand piano moments. Other contributors include Roger Doyle, Donald Teskey, Vinnie Murphy, and Jerome Rimson. Reissued by Allchival.
