Fractured Air 47: Bill Wells ‘Nursery Rhymes Participants’
The internationally renowned Scottish composer Bill Wells compiles a mixtape to coincide with the release of Bill Wells & Friends’ ‘Nursery Rhymes’ (Karaoke Kalk) featuring: Yo La Tengo, Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Isobel Campbell, Bridget St. John and many more. This year, the ever-prolific Wells has also resumed the award-winning collaboration with former Arab Strap vocalist Aidan Moffat with the release of ‘The Most Important Place In The World’ via Scottish label Chemikal Underground (and follow-up to 2011’s ‘Everythings Getting Older’). Bill Wells has collaborated with a myriad of artists over the years resulting in some of independent music’s finest treasures in recent times. These include ‘Fugue’ (the 2010 Immune Recordings release with Sweden’s Tape); works with Maher Shalal Hash Baz (‘Osaka Bridge’ and ‘Gok’) and the solo ‘Lemondale’ (Double Six Recordings, 2011).
