Boris / Joe Volk

Joe Volk
Happenings and Killings

Joe Volk’s CV is an impressive thing, taking in membership of Gonga and Crippled Black Phoenix as well as a split with Boris. As a solo artist, he has often worked with deep, dark folk sounds: some of that is here on Happenings and Killings, but we also have orchestral sweep and electronic action. Out on Glitterhouse.

Joe Volk
Happenings & Killings

Joe Volk’s history lies with bands of great heaviness: Gonga and Crippled Black Phoenix in particular. As a solo artist he delves into melancholy songwriting, and Happenings & Killings is his most sonically broad work yet. Help comes from Ben Salisbury, who provided electronics and arrangements for the Bristol Ensemble Orchestra, and Billy Fuller and Geoff Barrow of Beak>.
