I think it's great when an artist who makes pop (or in Chapman's case, folk) boils over, tired of making commercial music, and just goes and makes something plain weird. The Resurrection and Revenge of Clayton Peacock (Superb name, by the way) is one of those albums. Though I'll have to admit that I've never actually bought an album of his aside from this, I'm told that his music is very traditional folk - not here. If this is the case, then it is to Chapman, what Unfinished Music was to John Lennon, or even what Metal Machine Music is to Lou Reed - a piece of art so far removed from the normal, that a great many people just couldn't take it. However, I come to this album as a lover of experimental music, and one that isn't expecting/wanting some good ol' traditional folk. Coming at it from this angle, it is - in a nutshell - brilliant. The first fifteen minutes or so are taken up with feedback drenched electric guitar, not a particularly heavy sound, and not, surprisingly, an overwhelmingly intense one, but instead an all engulfing, deeply meditative one. Dark, echoey knocks and bangs, start to appear, and then subtle bass meanders into existence. This isn't to last however as the second track, forms an, if anything, even less musical sound that before...
All-encompassing, yet, again, suberbly subtle feedback form the basis for random noises, disembodied, eratic noises - and so it continues.

Basically, this isn't an album for the narrow minded fan who wants more of the same, but instead for the more discerning listener.

On this record, you'll hear Michael Chapman exploring pretty much every sound he can produce from his electric guitar, apart from playing it in the way like he's been doing for over 40 years. You get two side-long instrumental and improvised pieces on which the artist creates a dark and intimate atmosphere. Chapman generates all sorts of sonic effects from his instrument, using effect pedals, close contact microphones and occasional bells & percussion. In my opinion this is a very successful experiment and an engrossing record which requires attentive listening - preferably using headphones to pick up every single detail. Keep away if you're looking for vintage Michael Chapman folky/bluesy/fingerpicking tunes, it's quite simple. If you're open for abstract 'sort-of avant-garde' music, this one comes recommended.

I found this hard to categorise. It's unlike anything else I've heard by Michhael Chapaman. Instead the two long, instrumental and abstract tracks at different times brought to mind very late John Fahey, Loren Connors, Tetuzi Akiyama, the drones of Kawabata Makoto and the most free-from echoplex playing by John Martyn. I liked it in that context and will return to it with pleasure.

This is so different from the Michael Chapman who I enjoyed seeing in London in the early 80s that I feel some sympathy for the reviewers who have given it one star. But if, like me, you enjoy some sonic experiments, some deep and exploratory sound-scapes and are open to just letting these improvised pieces flow over you, this is a delight and, at £1.38 for the mp3 download, a complete bargain. If you want Michael Chapman folk guitar legend you may be disappointed or even a little shocked. If you want to hear something a bit different give it a go - it's a cracker :-)
