Camberwell, in South London, appears infrequently in pop culture. Perhaps you know it from the "Camberwell Carrot," the heroically-sized joint smoked in cult movie Withnail & I, or perhaps - if you're attuned to experimental music - you know of Camberwell Now, formed from the ashes of art-noise group This Heat.
Not so much a supersession as a continuation of that group, Camberwell Now featured This Heat’s vocalist/drummer Charles Hayward, who assembled an unusual lineup comprising Stephen Rickard, a former BBC sound engineer, on field recordings and tape manipulation and Trefor Goronwy on bass, vocals and ukulele. “We had a very specific set of skills,” says Hayward, “and it wasn’t immediately clear to us how best to bring them together so that we could play live.”
