Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang | WIG257 | Released: 29/03/10
For this new album of songs, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and The Cairo Gang together have built a bridge forward, assembled with riffs and bits from Emmett Kelly’s guitar and the lyricism of Bonnie’s heart. But mostly, The Wonder Show of the World was, in its making, about trust. It’s a record made eye-to-eye in a room, close and careful, by and for a few men who wanted to be together, who wanted to make music that sounds as good to listen to as it did to make, and who in doing so forged something new in space, the wonder of you and of them.
The Cairo Gang belongs to Emmett Kelly, alternately him and his.
Bonnie and Emmett have also recorded together with others on the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy albums, Lie Down In The Light, The Letting Go, Beware and the EP, Chimji.
