I made this for you today, it's what I would have opened my concerts in Holland with - not meant to be this weekend but looking forward to the new dates when they get sorted! This is Stag, BUT it's a very different beast and I wanted to document this live for you - usually they change behind the scenes. This is an extract, the whole thing is here if you want to watch in full youtu.be/2FaRmRK_2Xo

It's 50000 bpm faster than the album version (feeling the energies at the moment 😎) and has the ORIGINAL start, which I took out when I recorded Stag for Five Incantations, not sure why because I like it, maybe because it's much faster now. New sequence at the end, and it's a bit beefy on the low end but I like the vibe so it stays!

My music room is being renovated at the moment, so the art is not properly up yet, but you can see Sarah Calcutt 's lino for Five Incantations, MickaΓ«l Hoebregs beautiful pencil work below that, David Rooney Music 's Echotal print (sorry I'm covering it up!) and Lucie Dehli 's stunning 'Morigan' which Alan and I managed to get home from Roadburn unscathed, great bit of TMing there!

Enjoy (I hope!), much love to all X

Well seeing I couldn't be in Holland, this is a most wonderful surprise and privilege to wake up on my little island and watch you gorgeous Jo and listen to your incredible music! Thank you, luvs ya, big hugs.xx 😘

I admire how all these layers add up to something that gets more and more beautiful - it's like the creation of an audible sculpture! Ages ago I used to experiment with tape loops (before there were loop pedals - yes I am that old) but it always ended up in a mess πŸ˜…

Flint Kids, not sure if you’ve heard Jo before. We’ve played a few events on the same bill and met Jo a few times. Amazing musician!! Thought I’d virtually introduce you for any possible collaborations. Hi Jo. Hope ya well.

Wonderful! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ I love the inclusion of the in-screen of the looper. I love watching artists as skilled as yourself using them creatively. I will get one one day, once funds allow, and my skills improve sufficiently to justify it.

What a fantastic recording and video πŸ–€ What a great start it will be at the openings concert in Almere! I had the privilege to hear the full sound already with that ‘beefy low’ as it will be in the Goede Rede church, can’t wait!!! I am sure my neighbor heard it too πŸ˜‰

Brilliant to see the pedal and the playing at the same time! Thanks for the insight!

I knew there was something to it when I mistakenly spinned it 45rpm instead of 33 rpm πŸ˜‰ Wonderful as always. Thank you for posting πŸ™πŸŽΆβ€οΈ

Truly love the original intro as well as the other amendments! Interesting how each piece continues to evolve 😍😍😍. Hope to catch you very soon in Almere! xxxx

Stunning. I've been listening to you a lot since seeing you for the first time at Wardruna in March. I could watch you play all day though!! 😍

That different beast might deserve a new name...

I love these videos of yours; it is a feeling difficult to express in wordsπŸ™πŸ₯°. Maybe I try a scientific explanation (I am a university graduate based on physics): you manage through sound and image to enter my resonant frequency (and with others probably the same); and so I oscillate😍To go to YouTube now, where I have 10 minutes. PS Definitely to "catch" you somewhere this year; such a moment is greatly missed😒

That is some juggling with the pedal set up

that lamp is quite exquisite

This is so beautiful Jo ❀ xxx

Awesome! Thank you!!!

The Jo!

Fantastic stuff!

Beautiful!

Love you Jo

saw you in my dream, a couple of days ago, u were sleeping tight when they took your pillow, then i decided to protect u, tigers came from the woods but other animals have fought them off. <3 πŸ™‚

Some very disappointing news people!...I was so looking forward to these three solo gigs in Almere - different sets each night! Unfortunately, some unforeseen, and unavoidable circumstances mean we have to postpone. πŸ˜•

NEW DATES as soon as I have them and rest assured your tickets will still be valid!

And do be assured when we bring these shows to you they will be very special experiences worth the wait!

Totally understand the situation thanks to advise from Alan and fully support the decision made by yourselves and the organisers! Will just do these shows later! Something great to look forward too!

The universe redirects for a better plan πŸ’– all the best for future performances, best wishes from Australia πŸ™‚

Best of luck and then we just have to wait πŸ¦‡

That’s a shame. Well, more time to look forward to it I guess πŸ˜…

Oh no. πŸ™ guess we won't see you on Friday then, sad times.

Such a shame! I was just discussing with someone which day(s) we'd go! Hopefully soon!

Bummer…. 😒

I NEVER HAVE NEW MERCH (well, sometimes!) AND NOW I DO. I might write an opera about this one...!!

Grab them while they are here! Beautiful new Tshirts featuring David Rooney's stunning artwork for The Cartographer. Shirt design by Dan Capp, printed with love by Sarah Heck Press - thanks to everyone involved in this! All shirts are black (despite my phone making Ruban's look grey).

These are SUPER SOFT and beautiful to wear. They are comfortably sized, not tight, so your normal size would be fine, if you want a close cut shirt go down a size maybe.

Thank you for your support!!! See you soon, in Almere if you're coming at the weekend or soon after perhaps on my tour with Emma. Much love Jo xx

Totally rad! Will buy one next time we meet 🌚

These turned out GREAT! πŸ™‚

Hopefully I'll still be able to get one at your Brum gig in August.

Very nice! If you can put an XL man's one to one side, I'd be grateful - PayPal has stopped working for me because I've moved and it won't allow me to pay at the moment but I live in hope I'll be able to get it to work again soon.

Awesome. Will they last until you come to Germany in July, or should I get one right now by mail-order? πŸ™‚

stunning! ordered!

Fab, save one for me pleaseπŸ˜‰

I would buy one if it was in XXL πŸ™ƒ

Ah I came so close… nice printing!

Definitely XXL for my fat ass my love haha xxx

Will they be available in Almere? 🀩

Top! in french dans le text!

Wow!!! ooh i’m tempted!

Wow. Adding that to my must have T-shirts 2022. So far, it’s this one and the Cave In, Heavy Pendulum cover.

Looking good

Very nice

Sba Ro 😱

Ordered and paid! Great shirt with fantastic printing!

Could you save me one small please? πŸ™‚
