The Newcastle-born artist, known for output for Correspondent, Hivern and ESP Institute, has released a deeply personal exploration of his home city and family via his Me Me Me imprint.
‘The Bed Wetter project and the album "Billy Mill is Dead" see me attempting to explore my own history, the history of my family, and the history of the places i grew up in. It’s also me attempting to examine my relationship with these things and how they inform me in the present.
The album deals with themes of identity, both shared and individual, and how the interplay of physical and traditional legacy inform who I am, regardless of whether I choose to run towards or away from those things.
The entire album was recorded over 3 days using nothing but an old laptop, archive recordings of my family, and sampled youtube footage.
No track has been edited or revised, and they instead offer an honest and immediate expression of my feelings about each place, person, or concept they deal with.’ (Man Power)
