“When Tabor approaches traditional material in a capella form it can freeze the skin on your face…”

JUNE TABOR review by JIMMY JOHNSON, Editor

  • YouTube is really delivering lately. The linked video below is of June Tabor from 1990 and damn if our faces aren’t frozen! Two violins and June’s beautiful voice and no synths - tho’ we kind of wish Hermann Nitsch would jump out from behind the cathedral doors and douse the crowd in pig’s blood.  Give yourself a treat. You may be in tears by the end of the first song.

“When I first met Byron I remember we were both interested in bands that sounded like the Birthday Party, anyone who had that sort of influence…I can remember we were trying to chase down those bands. Ultimately it’s kind of stupid behavior. I don’t know what it really accomplishes.”
