united bible studies


"originally formed as a duo with an unhealthy desire to emulate the Incredible String Band, United Bible Studies quickly evolved into a collective and laid the groundwork for the Deserted Village label and events. since their formation in winter 2001 they have played and recorded sporadically-never settling on one recording method, never settling on one line-up. they show a love of the unadorned beauty of Shirley Collins, Anne Briggs and Vashti Bunyan. sparse folk sidles up to a more melodic take on improvisation and tales of loss and pagan longing abound. If they could exist anywhere, they would be playing in the Green Man when Sergeant Howie arrives..." deserted village
