Our Song of the Day featured on a 2011 release from ‘Mr Folkadelica’ Jack Hayter titled Sucky Tart. The EP was released on the ever humble and hugely underestimated label Audio Antihero whose motto, ‘specialists in commercial suicide and…a new kind of awesome” is more a reflection on their commitment to putting out great music.
If anything, Hayter brought some well-deserved attention to Audio Antihero following the release of Sucky Tart which picked up airplay from the likes of Tom Ravenscroft and Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music.
Anyway, here is I Stole The Cutty Sark…keep an ear out for new Lost in Transmission show, we’ll have more from Jack and equally rebellious underground sounds.
If you want to check out more of Jack’s music, be sure to listen to his 12-part “The Sisters of St. Anthony” singles series. As AA say, it covered “everything from Cold War era Folk ballads to Lo-Tech Electronica. It was a really beautiful series of songs that didn’t quite set the world alight (look what label it was on!)…but did touch a handful of people greatly. We were even lucky enough to feature guest appearances from Darren Hayman, Antony Harding, Dollboy, Suzanne Rhatigan and Woodcraft Folk + guest artwork from Benjamin Shaw, Ant and Sexton Ming. Jack played 100 radio sessions and picked up some strong reviews and that was that, a series to be proud of. At one point Jack missed his deadline and I was convinced he was dead.”
