Martin Ruby “Sisyphus” – rolling away that stone…

Attentive reader that you are, and we do appreciate how you lap up every word we collectively craft, you’ll recall that when we can we have a mellow out afternoon mid-week session when we reconnect with music with no words.   Did we call it chill-ax Wednesday?  Probably not, that doesn’t sound at all like us.  So what have we here to help calm you from that mid-week lull that we call Wednesday afternoon?

Martin Ruby has a new album prepped to go, it’s called ‘Jacob and the Angel’ and it is, he says, “more than instrumentals – it is a real trip, inspired by our collective lockdown experiences.”  The interconnected pieces aim to act as the soundtrack to an unmade movie, and here on ‘Sisyphus‘ there’s surely that lockdown feeling that it’s the same thing, day after day and never ending.

Rest assured folks, it will end – just get those jabs and wear the damn masks, ok?

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
