nomadic one-man-garage-orchestra

Described in Cornwall by angry locals as the bastard son of Waits, Strummer, Reinhardt and Rachmaninov, Julian Gaskell is a ludicrously self-sabotaging musical talent whose work over the last 20 years has incorporated verbose punk, withering agricultural-folk, european street accordion and skiffled-up boogie-woogie piano protest songs, torch ballads, weeping country laments and straight up rock’n’roll bangers.

“such originality, intelligence and appeal that the ability to hear suddenly seems like a privilege” Vive le Rock
