The Hurdy Gurdy Song is a deep drone heard through time.
It is a masterpiece of psycho-cosmology that fuses the ancient music of the British Isles with the frenetic sound of the present.
It is the sound of euphoria and melancholia, locked together in constant battle that neither wants to win.
It is an elemental sound, like a sped up version of this country’s weather.
It is an anthem of disruption, of playful provocation and sonic sedition.
It is relentless and restless, like all good music should be.
It sings down through all eternity, the crying of humanity.
It channels the two greatest forms of folk music this country has produced: that of the peasant’s lyre and drum’n’bass.

The Hurdy – Gurdy Song (Back To The 90’s Mix)

Jem Finer and Jimmy Cauty’s Local Psycho and the Hurdy-Gurdy Orchestra have released their debut single The Hurdy-Gurdy Song on 12” vinyl and via streaming/download platforms. As well as the original, The Hurdy-Gurdy Song now comes backed with a trio of new mixes, and new artwork by Jimmy Cauty.

Hurdy Gurdy Song (Mothers of the New Stone Age remix) 

The certified banger that was custom made to get to No 1 in Bavaria has been remixed by the artists themselves into (nearly) six minutes of stunning slow motion sound, completely reimagining the original’s addictive madness as a super heavy low frequency medieval ambient dub.

The Hurdy – Gurdy Song (Stone Club Extended Remix)

The people behind the country’s hottest megalithic fanclub deconstruct and pull and reshape the Hurdy Gurdy Song before adding trippy vocal samples  and seismic distortion to create a spaced out spiritual ambient dronescape that stretches out over twenty plus minutes of supreme, beautiful, horizontal oddness.
