It was pretty damn great watching Withered Hand headlining the Queen’s Hall during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Not least because I saw him play on a bill with Jesus H. Foxx and Broken Records headlining at Edinburgh’s Cabaret Voltaire in late 2009.

I was blown away by Dan Willson’s performance that night – and spent the next age trying to get hold of his album. Eventually Ed at SL Records obliged -and it’s always pained me that I heard it after I had done my best albums for the year list.

Oh well…this was a free track that Dan gave away at the end of 2009. Not a year I would want to live through again, but this is an excellent song, which has another version on his latest EP Inbetweens (order here

If you haven’t bought Dan’s stuff before now, you should start by trying your local independent record shop. You could also buy direct from Dan here
