BONNIE ‘PRINCE’ BILLY
& THE CAIRO GANG

‘The Wonder Show of The World’

On 29 March 2010 Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy & The Cairo Gang (Emmett Kelly and Shahzad Ismaily) released ‘The Wonder of The World’ album on Domino on CD and vinyl formats. The three perviously recorded together for the album ‘Lie Down In The Light’, whilst Bonnie and Emmett have also recorded together with others on the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy albums ‘The Letting Go’ and ‘Beware’ as well as the EP ‘CHIJIMI’.

For this new album of songs, Bonny Billy and The Cairo Gang together have built a bridge forward, assembled with riffs and bits from Emmett Kelly’s guitar and the lyricism of Bonny’s heart. But mostly, ‘The Wonder Show of the World’ was, in it’s making, about trust. It’s a record made eye-to-eye in a room, close and careful, by and for a few men who wanted to be together, who wanted to make music that sounds as good to listen to as it did to make, and who in doing so forged something new in space, the wonder of you and of them.

Players and credits are:
Shahzad Ismaily: Mostly bass. Some percussion too, and a wee bit of singing.
Phil Elverum: Joins in on the choir in ‘Go Folks’ and ‘Kids’.
Recorded by Tusi in his Poor Shelter.
Emmett Kelly as first mate and then some.
Mastered by Paul Oldham.
Also thank you Peter Townsend for indispensable assistance in the making of this recording
