|Marc Carroll Love Is All Or Love Is Not At All Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
· Following 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘Stone Beads And Silver’ and the 2014 release of re-mastered and expanded editions of his first four albums, One Little Indian release Marc Carroll’s seventh studio album, ‘Love Is All Or Love Is Not At All’.
· The title track is a collaboration with poet, author,
philosopher and legendary musician Penny Rimbaud,
celebrated for his work with the seminal and continually influential band Crass.
· In a similar vein is the accompanying subtly subversive artwork designed by Gee Vaucher, responsible for the iconic Crass artwork.
· Marc: “Everything about Penny and Gee resonates with me, their art, words, sense of humour. Their life’s work has influenced millions. And it has been a life’s work. It’s a beautiful story that is still lived out to this day. Quite simply, there is no authority but yourself.”
· Penny: “What’s my connection with Marc? A sense of love. What kind of sense is that? Common sense. It’s all in the title, Love is… All.”
· Much of the work here resonates with these connections and associations - from the opening track ‘No Hallelujah Here’, a humble yet searing reflection on the killing of four small boys playing football on a beach during the vicious attacks on Gaza in 2014, to the triumphant call for unity and love, ‘Ball And Chain’. The former was the first song written for the new record and in the broadest sense frames the album’s themes.
