|Adrian Crowley & James Yorkston My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs Of Daniel Johnston Limited Vinyl LP + MP3
· Irish Choice Prize Music winner Adrian Crowley teams up
with Fife balladeer James Yorkston to pay homage to the songs of Daniel Johnston.
· The album’s origins can be traced back to 2006 when James asked Adrian to play with him at The Barbican in London for the ‘Devil And Daniel Johnston’ tribute concert.
· In 2008 the decision was made to make an album of Daniel Johnston songs, forsaking a studio for home recordings sent back and forth between Dublin and Fife.
· Recording onto weather-beaten Portastudios, the album features a baby monitor, a magpie, a smashed bouzouki and, of course, a set of spurs.
· The 8 songs were burned onto 99 CDRs and sold at the Fence Homegame Festival. They sold so quickly that neither Adrian or James had time to get a copy.
· The tracks have now been remastered and made available
through Chemikal Underground on a limited run of CD and LP (500 each), as well as digital download.
· The LP is heavyweight vinyl and includes a fully art-worked CD along with a 12” x 12” artwork print.
