about

In 1940 my dad, who was from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, was working as a merchant seaman stoking the boilers, below decks, on the "Europa", the ship which brought the Canadian Army to Britain to fight in World War II.

The ship was bombed to bits while in Brocklebank Docks, Liverpool and my dad was stranded in England without a ship to go back to. He chose to join up in the Canadian Army, 48th Highlanders Regiment. He was posted to Aldershot and later fought in Italy.

At the end of war he settled down in England, made a home, raised a family. My mother was from the Republic of Ireland. I grew up English (and Irish, and Canadian).

This album begins with tracks related to these events and then goes off at some weird tangent....

about

Speculativism Exeter, UK

Peter-David Smith does "Sound Art" - in other words, making art from sounds, approaching the arrangement of sounds from a fine art background, putting sounds together in the manner of a collage, a painting, a sculpture as opposed to music per se.
