Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you can get it on a wonderful Christmas present-ready 'shop window' edition vinyl or book back CD with all your favourite slightly hip people talking about the album in an accompanying book. Wake up, and look at this thing that I bring!

8/10 Garret 28th November 2018Once upon a time, not so long ago…From the opening track, you’re there. Transported back to a half-remembered childhood where poorly days off school were brightened up by inspired TV programming from the bigger island. A shop of lost things presided over by the most important, the most beautiful, the most magical, saggy old cloth-cat in the whole wide world. The music by Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner draws on the English folksong tradition recycling melodies and motifs that would make even the most po-faced folkie crack a smile. The songs are charming, funny and even a little rude. A delight for the ages and all ages.
