Do Not Go Gentle // Dylan Thomas
Released by O Genesis Recordings, the music was written by Brighton based musician/producer Richard Smith with a team of close musicians Robin Peel (guitar), Toby May (drums) and former Skinny Lister bassist Dan Gray Recorded at the Metway (The Levellers Studio) in Brighton
'Howard Marks and Dylan Thomas are kindred spirits linked by geography but separate by time. When you read Dylan Thomas's poetry, your imagination usually does it in the best Welsh baritone it can muster, basically as close as it can get to Howard Marks's speaking voice. Take all of that and add the gentlest yet most evocative and stirring music and the result is Do Not Go Gentle....'
