She’s awfully good, so you probably should.

Yes, being one letter away from a baldy SAS wannabe and the daughter of Maddy Prior doesn’t prevent her from being fearsomely good.

Why is being the daughter of Maddy Prior a drawback?

No reason, of course, except that one has learned not always to expect great things from the offspring of the great. The Jakob Dylan syndrome.

Or Julian Lennon. Or Sean Lennon. Or Harper Simon. Eliza Carthy did OK though I suppose. And Everett’s favourite band The Like 🙂

Her parents did ‘All Around My Hat’, imagine having that in your DNA. She’s great – there’s a record she did with an Italian band called Ufomammut that really rocks, I’ll try and locate it for you.

True that Golden Shroud really gets under your skin. Ill send you some text she is putting together on the pros of intermodulation distortion…which incidentally Wikipedia refer to as ‘unwanted amplitude’.

Ultimately, it’s remarkably straightforward. I like rock music that ROCKS. I don’t like rock music that doesn’t. (Rock music that doesn’t rock – it don’t make sense.) Golden Shroud by Rose Kemp TOTALLY FUCKEN ROCKS, the same way anything by early Black Sabbath or Motörhead or High On Fire rocks. So I fucken like it – OK? I had no idea who or what Rose Kemp was until some of my friends chimed in (see above). I kinda assumed it was a band name, actually. A shit one, at that.
