Barney Ashton-Bullock: Bucolicism - Alt-Lite Lyric Verse For A Post-Pastoral England

In stock
Downes Braide Association poet Barney Ashton-Bullock appears as the band’s poet/narrator on their albums ‘Skyscraper Souls’, ‘Live in London’ and ‘Halcyon Hymns’ and in their live shows. This book,‘ Bucolicism’, created in response to fans requesting copies of the works featured on those albums, is endorsed by band members Geoff Downes (Yes, Buggles, Asia) and Chris Braide (Marc Almond, Sia, David Guetta). It compiles together all of Barney Ashton-Bullock’s poetic & lyrical contributions to the pastoral sensibilities of the DBA albums, re-set in their original longer form works and supplemented by a range of further writings that plough the same idioms of nostalgia, misplaced or otherwise, that seek to express the illusive golden age ‘bucolics’ of a nation going through rapid change and, seemingly, often ill-at-ease with itself.
