ADMIRALS HARD Upon A Painted Ocean Limited Vinyl LP

Admirals Hard is 7-piece folk band specialising in sea shanties and traditional maritime folk songs and featuring members of underground bands as diverse as Cardiacs, Knifeworld, Guapo, North Sea Radio Orchestra, Stars In Battledress, William D Drake, Gong, and Mediaeval Baebes.

The band was formed by Cornishman Andy Carne who, during a spell of exile in London, convinced fellow West Country ex-pats to help him bring new life to the music he'd been singing since childhood. These musicians, though largely involved in leftfield, experimental rock, shared Carne's love of real-deal folk music, with some already accomplished in the parallel world of traditional folk. Using harmonium, hurdy-gurdy, melodeon, hammered dulcimer and 7 voices they make his vision a rousing reality. Upon A Painted Ocean is a raucous collection of sea songs played with attitude, infectious good humour and adventurous but sympathetic arrangements.
