Martyn Bennett Grit Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

"This is my story about triumph in the face of struggle. It is a story of the people and songs I grew up with, and most importantly, it is their voices, traditions and the inspiration they have given to be passed on to the next generation." Martyn Bennett (1971 - 2005). There have been few more thrilling sounds in the last decade than Martyn Bennett flattening the usual barriers of time, culture and genre that imprison music in boxes. During his short but extraordinary career, Martyn was simply one of the daring and innovative musicians working in Scotland, or anywhere, and he leaves a brilliant musical legacy. This double LP features two bonus tracks: Martyn's remix of Peter Gabriel's "Sky Blue" and "Mackay's Memoirs", the final recorded work before Martyn's death in 2005. Grit will be a grit-box yellow coloured vinyl. " I loved how he created and handled his work," explains Peter. "There was always a mix of intense emotion, compassion and pride, served on a bed of atmosphere and rhythm." "The pleasures of Grit will always be bittersweet but it was and remains a remarkable, thrilling and wondrous piece of work. This CD should be in everybody's collection." ***** Songlines
