Johny Lamb aka Thirty Pounds of Bone’s fourth installment of The Ship’s Log sonically set sail yesterday. It’s called, ‘A Perilous 400 Yards’ and it’s reliably really rather brilliant, even if we do say so ourselves.
"This is the song that documents Collective Spirit’s journey to, and arrival in Portsmouth. Along the way, we encounter a loose jib-sheet, 25 knot winds, choppy seas, a songwriter lying face down in the open transom trying to free a stuck engine bracket and a welcome of a 600 strong choir and 3000 waving people into the city."
You can download the song for absolutely free HERE.
The Ship’s Log is written and produced by Thirty Pounds of Bone and is part of Lone Twin’s ‘The Boat Project.’ It documents the events and experiences of the boat’s maiden voyage.
Below is a recording of Thirty Pounds of Bone performing the previous installment, ‘The Plunging of Gannets’ live in Brighton at the Nightingale Theatre with a band line up that included Thomas and Alex White, Marc Beatty and Mary Hampton. This performance was recorded by Mat Benzie. It’s BBBB-eautiful so it is.
The Boat Project is part of Artists Taking the Lead, a series of 12 public art commissions across the UK to celebrate the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. The Boat Project is funded by Arts Council England.
