Burnside Album Details

Battlefield Band, zama zama--try your luck

This album started as a collection of songs and tunes about gold. But as we searched, like the alchemists of old, it turned into a wider idea. In the process we saw the greed, disasters and victories inherent in the search and exploitation of various sources of wealth in this world. Then, as if by demonic serendipity, along comes the worldwide economic crisis. We watched the major banks, insurance companies and Hedge Funds etc., implode, discrediting the entire financial system and many of its managers and advisers - But there was still more to come. As we put this album together we have been amazed, angered, depressed and hilariously horrified. Battlefield are musicians and singers, not politicians, so we offer you songs old and newly composed, including a Nina Simone song ‘Plain Gold Ring’. Great music and song highlighting the ‘wealth’ of a dynamic tradition. As always with Battlefield Band, they produce Contemporary Scottish music 2000 years in the making
