Steven Ball – Life of Barrymore


Steven Ball

“Life of Barrymore”

Extraordinary EP of new songs by the New Cross based sound/visual artist and composer Steven Ball (a member of the influencial DIY electronics group Storm Bugs with Philip Sanderson). “Life of Barrymore” is a collection of songs with lyrics transcribed from verbatim recordings of specially selected snatches of British television. Haunting, and occasionally uncomfortable, “Life of Barrymore” treats these found texts with utmost seriousness, and are sung by Ball in a moving and mesmeric fashion over specially created beds of accordion,guitar andelectro-acoustics. “Life of Barrymore” is a gripping and unique experience.
