Words & Music from Tom Cox’s novel Villager, plus Q&A
In 1968 a Californian musician blows through a West Country village where he writes a set of haunting songs that will earn him a group of obsessive fans and a cult following.
The set of eleven songs form the album Wallflower. The Californian is RJ McKendree, created by the best-selling author Tom Cox from his novel Villager, brought to life by musician Will Twynham (Dimorphodons).
Villager, Tom Cox’s thirteenth book and debut novel (out 28 April 2022, Unbound), synthesises his passion for music, nature and folklore into a psychedelic and enthralling exploration of village life and the countryside that sustains it.
Wallflower is a dreamlike, poetic record that reaches through time, rich with metaphor from landscape, soil and rock. Drawing on outsider blues, psychedelia, and the early folk rock scenes of both the US and UK, Wallflower possesses an expansive feel that sometimes turns dark, dense and murky, leaning into the ritual and folkloric mysteries that lurk on the edge of a Dartmoor-esque landscape.
