Hugh Hopper and Matt Howarth

The Stolen Hour (cd)


Our blast from Burning Shed's past:

Gloriously atmospheric and intense, 2004's 'The Stolen Hour' was a superb extension of Hugh Hopper's 'Jazzloops' series of explorations written to accompany the distinctive imagery of comic book artist, Matt Howarth.

Assisted by, amongst others, Robert Wyatt (cornet, voice), John Marshall and Didier Malherbe, Hopper updated the Jazz-tinged Minimalist looping he initially developed in the 1960s, evoking the innovative spirit of early Soft Machine, while simultaneously suggesting new possibilities for his music.

Now reduced in price, we have very few copies of this album available.


Gong

Flying Teapot (teapot)


A cosmic teapot in honour of the finest post-Psychedelic experimentalists around. Perfect for serving the best drink in the world ever (Blue Lady grapefruit tea, now you're asking). 

Manufactured, produced and decorated in the UK, the teapot is made from earthenware to a traditional shape synonymous with british tea - the brown betty teapot. The teapots are made by the last man standing in Stoke-on-Trent still making traditional teapots. The pots are hand dipped and glazed before having a full-colour screen print and handle decoration put on the sides and handle of the teapot. 

Very few remain of this extremely limited edition. There are more Rock Pots available, including Kraftwerk, Can, Neu!, Progscape and Gong mugs.
