Carnival of Fools is the music of the drowsy slumber at the end of a day of  over a provincial village green.

 

It is, as the cover suggests, the delight and  half-remembered excitement of bunting strung prettily and the canvas tents hiding  the delights of the fete. It is a melodic re-imagining of a by-gone age, the rose-tinted              sound of perfectly pleasant pop bringing a welcome acoustic folk direction to the many psych-infusions around.

 

 The album costs £5.00 plus postage and packing.
