KNONE explores many texts, avenues and backwaters through its mission to reach the bottom of the soul of English music. The lost legacy of urban folk music funnelled and perverted through a modern filter.

Knone is fronted by Andrea Croce, of Ye Nuns and formerly Mambo Taxi, using a range of higly stylized intrusive vocal practices, summoning the ghosts of the spiritual fanatacism of bygone times. This ‘force majeure’ is backed by the sonic primal energy created by Ashley Davies, no stranger to Far Out-sider musical experiments with the likes of Project Dark, Headbutt, Apeiron, Blood Tub Orchestra et al.

Unlike the parasitic clinging sentimetality and the quaint whiff of the pastoral pastimes of days gone by used in much modern folk influenced music, on this album, KNONE’s exploration picks at the cloying scabs of heritage, habit, ritual and ceremonial music with seared rhythmic poundings that evoke pre-Christian customs, punctuated with sharp spears of electronic pulse and glass daggers of disturbance which raise the sinister spectre of the lost future now.

The album collection is a field study of songs taken from texts taken from rituals and ceremonies dated 1600-1800 and is intended to be listened to as one continual liturgy.
