Cult Party

Leo Robinson is one of those rare and special people for whom making music and art seems to be neither pastime nor vocation and not so much compulsion as mere inevitability, a way of living.

His most recent album ‘Eternal Love And The Death Of Everything’ (Maybles) was intended to be his last, and the concert to launch it (accompanied by six singers and a singing saw in addition to a full band) the last Cult Party performance. Thankfully for all of us there was a change of heart and a new album is coming this year. Whether accompanying his songs solo with organ, cello or guitar, or playing with any variant of his loose and fluid ensembles Cult Party shows are always deeply affecting and meditative and drenched in the generosity of one attempting to really give something of theirs to you.
