for most people, if you know john davis at all, it's from his collaboration with lou barlow as folk implosion, a band i first heard via their chocolate monk cassette debut. "everyone" of course knows lou, but here's a later period album from the wispy-voiced other half of the duo.
to me, john's music is all about silence and fragility. my favourite song by him is his contribution to the shrimper compilation "abridged perversion", "i had a dream i was down by the ocean" - it's so dreamily wistful. i only got this album recently - his records are sadly hard to find these days - but on cursory listen it's very much in that vein.
as far as i can tell he hasn't released anything since he left folk implosion in 2000 - i wonder what he's doing now.
lp released by shrimper in 1997.
