Product Notes

Mister Salmon Yorkshirama (2009) is a suite of anti-folk narrations, songs and instrumentals. There are references to a 1970s boyhood in northern England, but the album obeys an emotional logic to do with the way landscapes, people and events are changed as they are remembered. The ten tracks are organised like the scenes of an imaginary life story compressed for a biographical movie. In Ken Loach's 1969 film, Kes, a boy trains his kestrel in the same hinterlands where the young Mister Salmon escaped from suburbia. These places are remembered in the instrumental "Kes" of the Motorways. Some of the songs are set in the same landscape, like Stay Out, with 'the beer and the rat and the chocolate on the path away from home'. The Boy with the Big Dad, 'about a boy and a fairground, in a 1970s English town', tells of the briefly heroic childhood of a school show-off drawn into right-wing violence. Sheffield Philharmonic is an instrumental homage to an old-fashioned grandfather. He was an orchestra oboist, and an organist in a local Methodist chapel. Instead of a spare bedroom, he had a music room in his suburban bungalow, with an upright piano and a record player. Can there be anything like a folk music for someone attached to a place, but without much sense of tribal identity? Mister Salmon is undecided. 'I can only see in Yorkshirama...' says the mock-epic Yorkshirama! Chorus. 'Where I live is where I know, where no dirty birches grow...' says the first voice in Wheel in the Tower. Clouds Rise, Open Skies ends with the refrain 'I salute you as you go, I will stay, as you know.'
