YOU’RE A RIBBON ON A BOOOOOOUGH!

Ribbon on a Bough single

Martin John Henry has revealed his new single will be ‘Ribbon on a Bough’, OUT ON 3rd OCTOBER 2011!

The cover features an image of a bronze age burial cairn at the summit of Tinto Hill, the stand alone peak that towers at the heart of central Scotland. Henry told us that he climbed the hill just to take the photo for the single! When we asked him why, he said “The song has a lot of lyrics that talk about nature, community and belief, and when they’re sung in my accent, I think the words become about the land and the history of being alive here. There are some references to bible stories as well, the serpent and the apple. I wanted to throw a curveball to that stuff with the artwork, so I though it would be funny to have a druidic burial cairn on the cover. It’s nice to think that when people were living, feeling, loving, praying on that hill, there was no christianity, or Scotland, or much that we would recognise. I think ‘Ribbon on a Bough’ is about that feeling of coming home to the tribe after a period of solidude in the wilderness.”

‘Ribbon on a Bough’ is a real treat, with an air of catchy, upbeat celebration the likes of which we’ve never heard from Henry. At its live debut in spring 2011, ‘Ribbon…’ revealed itself as an instant fan favourite, with the entire audience singing along (Gargleblast staff included!)
