Welcome to the penultimate edition of the first series of ‘The Twang Factor’. This week’s artist is Martyn Moss from Brighton who performs under the name M. Butterfly. In Martyn’s own words: “M. Butterfly is from Brighton and he plays very sad Americana songs very slowly. He has recurring nightmares of nuclear fallout. He is bisexual. He writes the words at the same time as the music. He thinks he’s a poet. He feels too much. He likes survival horror video games. He believes in UFOs. He thinks he can speak a lot more French than he actually can. He is often the support act. He loves Townes Van Zandt, PJ Harvey and Low and he might just be the man of your dreams.”
The song performed here is called ‘The Sacred Art of the Wedding DJ’ and was filmed in the basement of wonderful Black Dove pub in Brighton the day before Lockdown 2. You can find out more about M. Butterfly by visiting his Facebook page here or listen to more of his music via Bandcamp here
