Product description

Review

"...the first book of it's kind to catalogue all these disparate strands, many of which cross over time and space to influence one another." DJ Food

"Stephen Prince's densely packed tome covers everything from folkloric film and literature to electronic music to acid folk to folk horror to the dystopian fiction of John Wyndham and the classic unearthings of Nigel Kneale to the formation of under-the-furrows record labels like Trunk, Ghost Box and Finders Keepers... This incredibly well-researched book, which is obviously written by a man with an enormous passion for this subject, is probably as comprehensive as it is possible to be... Books this culturally valuable don't grow on hedgerows, so make sure you harvest it immediately." Ian White, Starburst

"...author Prince has pulled together a mass of material culled not only from the website and its associated albums, but also a great deal more that was written specifically for the book. And the result is spellbinding." Dave Thompson, Goldmine

"...an essential field guide to a distinct aesthetic that remains loosely defined, like a fluttering night moth that would die if pinned down." Ben Graham, Shindig!

"An excellent compendium of Prince's musings and meditations on all things wyrdly bucolic, uncanny, and elegiac, spanning a spectral spectrum from Richard Mabey to Zardoz, Virginia Astley to Sapphire & Steel." Simon Reynolds, author of Retromania and Energy Flash

About the Author

Since 2014 Stephen Prince has been working on the A Year In The Country project, a set of year-long journeys through spectral fields; cyclical explorations of an otherly pastoralism, the outer reaches of folk culture and the spectres of hauntology.

More information on A Year In The Country can be found at: www.ayearinthecountry.co.uk

As a project, it has included a website featuring writing, artwork and music which stems from that otherly pastoral/spectral hauntological intertwining, alongside a growing catalogue of album releases.

In 2018 the A Year In The Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields book was released which draws together revised writing from the project, alongside new wanderings amongst the patterns beneath the plough, the pylons and amongst the edgelands.

“A Year In The Country quietly go about their business releasing beautifully packaged music that is influenced by folk, electronica, drone as well as by landscape, time and place... each have themes running through them, tying the music together and seemingly telling a story as they unfold.” Terrascope
