DAGON ALLEY is part of what I call my LOVECRAFT’S YEOVIL cycle of work (there’s an art / photography book of the same name currently in production).
It’s partially inspired by hidden parts / wrong-angle views of my home town – how it can suddenly reveal itself to me in new, unexpected forms – and my lifetime love of low-budget Horror films and crank literature.
A warped and malignant picture postcard of Yeovil, twinned with Innsmouth. The ink has run, has slid off the surface of Reality like a wet, finger-smudged Polaroid, leaving the image unrecognisable and speckled with mould. Paranoia and a sense of creeping, small town unease. Doors appear in walls, the roads no longer match the map. A 70s painting by Ian Miller.
I like this record a lot, but it also makes me never want to go to fucking Yeovil.
