“Imagine the ghosts of Jim Morrison and Otis Redding fighting over the soul of a 31 year old man from North Wales with an influence pool so deep & broad you could sink the Mary Celeste in it. Already garnering the acclaim of musical aficinados such as Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Robinson, Adam Walton & Georgia Ruth Williams; Titus Monk is a little like a rockslide on the peaks of Snowdonia. The rumble can be heard far and long. Compared to “Fela kuti meets Faust in an african spy movie soundtrack” by Mr Walton and according to Mary Anne – “Titus Monk makes rolling, brooding, impulsive sounds that are spectacularly displayed [here in Carl Weathers]… and indeed wouldn’t sound out of place in a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack.”. James Skelly of the Coral, upon hearing the Monk for the first time, tweeted “This is the best thing i’ve heard in ages…” High praise indeed but not unfounded.” – Festival No. 6
