Barry Woolnough Great Father Spirit In The Sky

    Expansion Records
      • 1. Great Father Spirit In The Sky

      This limited hand etched 7" from Barry Woolnough comes through UK dance music legend Andrew Weatherall's label Moine Dubh. "Great Father Spirit in The Sky" channels an almost shamanic tone...undulating drone and vocal repetition merge together to sow the seeds of a ritualistic musical experience, simultaneously growing in the soul and expanding in the mind.

      This track features on David Holmes' recent Late Night Tales compilation.
