Artist Info

Alain Chamois

Alain ChamoisData provided by DiscogsAlain Chamois is one of that rare breed of music writers who ended up making music themselves. After publishing his own fanzines in the 1990s from his Hebden Bridge bedroom, titles which included ‘Toner Burst’ and ‘Cindy Has Discovered Lo-Fi’, Chamois spent a number of years writing his still unfinished book on seventeenth century non-conformist and Ranter songs and hymns. After graduating from a course in music composition at Anglia Polytechnic University in 2004, Chamois wrote and directed his Robert Ashley influenced choral opera Cri Moon, about the history of the Criterion Pub in Cambridge (watering hole of Nick Drake amongst others). Since then Chamois has developed a style of contemporary musical composition based around his own texts about pop music stories and myths, often related to particular places. His first Owd Scrat release, Let Me Take You There, a meditation on the Calderdale landscape, Joy Division, Russ Abbot and (UK band) Rooney, is a brilliant example of his unique musical approach.
