Ollie Halsall with John Halsey - Abbot's Langrey

Ollie Halsall with John Halsey - Abbot's Langrey -  1980

In 1980, following his early career with Timexbox, Patto, Tempest and Boxer guitarist Ollie Halsall teamed up with former bandmate drummer John Halsey to record these remarkable sessions.

The planned group never materialised and Ollie joined Kevin Ayers' band, with whom he spent most of the next 12 years, until his untimely death in 1992.

This album is a snapshot of a particular period in the life of a somewhat eccentric but extraordinarily talented musician.

The material, which includes nine Halsall originals, dates from a 1980 colaboration with drummer John Halsey and is completed by some very unusual extra recordings.
