Track Premiere : Owen Tromans “Burying The Moon King”

And who, you might ask, is the Moon King?  Owen Tromans’ new single sounds like the stuff of legend, and in a way it is.  Not a mythological figure though, the Moon King is a reference to the castle building Bavarian monarch Ludwig II and the song is the story of his life – and death – through the eyes of one of his servants.

Owen Troman has been a prolific solo artist since 2001 – releasing eight albums and almost as many EPs and singles – ‘Burying The Moon King’ is one half of his latest double A-sider on Tromans’ imprint Sacred Geometry and is a precursor to a new album ‘Between Stones’ which will come out in October 2019 with a release gig planned for The Railway Inn in Winchester.  Prior to all this Owen Troman was a member of San Lorenzo, the turn of the century favourite of John Peel.

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?
