      that new mona and maria album is worth checking out, i guess it could be shoehorned into that category easily enough...

        They went out of fashion at a guess?

          Espers seem to have gone into hibernation. Which is a pity.

                Perhaps with any scene, 5 or 6 years later, most of the bands have moved on? I happen to know that with regards to The 18th Day of May, the band split up, and the lead singer married a Geordie dude and has now moved back home to the 'States. I know 'cos I was best man at their wedding.

                    It's like Christopher Mayhew tripping his bollocks off in that old documentary...."I am now outside of time....." Where does it go?

                    Everyone tear down your own little wall
                    That keeps you from being a part of it all
                    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                    You've just got to be close to it all

                      Kind of imploded - I think there were 'artistic differences' between the major players and the new version that was fronted by Michael Tyack didn't really take off. Last thing I know he worked on and produced was the reformed/rebooted Spyrogyra's LP (titled 5) in 2011.

                        Closer to 10 years really. Musicians can only keep ploughing their furrow and stay creative if they have a regular stream of income to keep them from worrying about real life basics like food, rent, heating etc.

                        There's a huge difference between being critically acclaimed by music and fashion magazines, the cultural intelligentsia, music forums and internet vinyl sellers and being financially successful. The latter may follow from getting a hit or some hit records but even that's no guarantee. (The golden egg dream of some songwriters; getting a song used in a film, TV series, advert or computer game is also fading fast as revenue streams shrink).

                        Like the first time round, Acid folk just didn't connect with enough people. It didn't cross over and there's only so long before trawling round the world playing small gigs to small crowds gets tiring.

                            Their third self funded album was a bit too full of misery and recrimination to be as enjoyable as the first two. Pity. I loved that band.

                              Fear ye not. When the orbits of general public opinion, critics musings, and the new wave of acid folkers coincide in 10 years time the Circulus lps will be raers!
