Dear all. The new home for thoughts and news from myself, David Benjamin Blower, and related collectives etc. can now be found at davidbenjaminblower.wordpress.com
Over there you’ll find news of a new record coming out very soon, gigs, up coming books, big questions and small actions. Come over, follow, connect, commune.
Grace and Peace.
I’ll be playing songs, conversing, and maybe taking requests at Six Eight Kafé in the city next friday (20th Nov).
£5 on the door or £4 online.
Proceeds go to Kings Heath Collects, who are getting stuff out to refugees spending winter in Greece.
Dear all. I’ve been gone for a long long time, and now I’m here again.
Everything I’ve done here so far has been anti-empire, which is a Kingdom thing. But the Kingdom is more than just the not-empire. evil is corrupted good, but good isn’t un-corrupted evil. Empire needs Kingdom to exist, but Kingdom doesn’t need empire. It’ll continue to exist after empire is gone. But still, what is it?
The new album/book is now available on CD, paperback, mp3 and ebook from the Minor artists label.
Also available on itunes, amazon, and spotify…
Here’s cover of one of the songs from my Kingdom Vs. Empire album, here reinvented by a friend and hero, John Napier of the Guitar Heads and Waler. It sounds quite different to the original… a little better, if anything.
