Nick Burbridge with Jon Sevink and Robert Kennedy In All Kinds Of Disorder. Nick combines talents with Jon Sevink, fiddler and composer for folk-rock band The Levellers, on a unique album of spoken word, music and effects. Poems taken from Nick’s collection of the same name (published by Waterloo Press) are embedded in Sevink’s innovative compositions and sound effects, across a range of styles, to create a unique listening experience.
The cast are genuine outsiders and subversive characters, attacking all centres of the fixed and safe, yet at the heart is a celebration of redemptive forces. While Nick, as singer/songwriter in McDermott’s Two Hours, has often collaborated with The Levellers on musical projects. this recording represents a groundbreaking fusion of ideas, and appeals to the listening and reading public alike. A five-track sampler was released with the original poetry volume to great reviews…
In the reading of poetry to folk music Nick Burbridge may well have invented another genre! He is a superb performance poet and Jon’s intricate music fits the words superbly. (folking.com)
