about

Last summer Piers Faccini and Blick Bassy met and sang together for a concert in a Romanesque chapel in the Cevennes near Piers’s home. The following morning they agreed to try and write and record something together, the challenge being to get it all done in the three hours they had available before Piers left for another gig. In the exceptional surroundings of Conqueyrac chapel, they wrote and recorded ‘Mother Time’ as well as putting down a version of the American traditional 'Make me down a pallet on your floor' to which Blick Bassy added some word in Bassa, the language of his homeland in Cameroun.

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
