THE RAGGED GARDEN

OUR BOOKS WITHSTAND THE FIRE

2012 St Just Vigilantes

This album seethes with the convert’s constant fever, with the urgency of the witness. With revelation comes responsibility; the need to tell the tale consumes from within. Holy word and voices that spill down through the years fuel footsteps, masking the ache of hunger and weary bones. The boundary between self and world break down. Time stretches out. But the journey home is always impossible when you’ve been away too long. The mists and hidden places of home start to seep into the visions of the saved.

SCALPEL SLICE

2006 Fire Records

'Little Sparta craft a quaint rustic-yet-dark feel from acoustic guitar, violin, harmonium, drums, and enough minor-key preciousness to soundtrack a stop-motion Tim Burton feature.' 7/10 Pitchfork

LITTLE SPARTA & SALLY TIMMS EP

2008 Grey Gallery

Two songs from Little Sparta recorded with Mekons Sally Timms and featuring Lu Edmonds on Bass. Partially record in a chalet at All Tomorrows Parties where Sally was performing.

CLOSE: MUSIC FOR AN EXHIBITION

2012 Little Sparta

‘Close: Music for an exhibition’ is the latest release by Little Sparta and the second on the Grey Gallery Label run by Susie Honeyman. The music is the culmination of the last few years recording at their studio in North London and performing at galleries & arts festivals while touring and writing with other projects (Mekons, St. Just Vigilantes); scoring for film & television (Day of the Triffids); and raising families.

CHORA EP

2017 ADB & Belle

In a dystopian future where the Earth is recovering from a nuclear holocaust, sentient androids are guarding humankind's legacy in a hidden base on the moon. When an asteroid destroys much of the base CHORA returns to earth to decide if humans are worthy of receiving the knowledge that has been so closely protected for a thousand years.

MOONDRAG: NEW YEAR

2015 MoonDrag

Old friends making music on New Year's Eve. Could things be better? Recorded at the Twilight Living Room in Edmonton, Canada

SENDO SENSHI - ORIGINAL SCORE

2011 Carnero Records

"Who the hell is Motojima? I'm in love with this undiscovered classic." Freddie Cowan - The Vaccines

Japanese-Italian composer Alessandro ‘Saseko’ Motojima and 70’s B-Movie/Godfather of Whitexploitation White Dolemite infamously collaborated on the movie ‘Sendo Senshi’. The soundtrack was released but then discontinued within a month, shrouding the work in myth. 

PASTOR OF OAKS: SHEPPHERD OF STONES

2006 Transparent Face/Static Caravan

'There is a certain anti-intuitive charm to this record' Cyclic Defrost

St. Just Vigilantes debut LP, Pastor of Oaks, Shepherd of Stones, is marked by the pilgrim’s good intent and the steady beat of sweetness it produces: the patient labor of desire, the dream of love only possible in ignorance.

JUST DON'T CARE/WAITING LINE
