Blue Eyed Black first appeared on the album "Not Alone" (released to raise funds for Médecins Sans Frontierès), alongside Jim O'Rourke, Bonny Prince Billy and Anthony.
"Hatter Mad" represents Blue Eyed Black's maiden voyage. It is a journey they would never have made were it not for the efforts of the respected songwriter Bill Fay, who compiled the album.
An eclectic, moody and ultimately assured collection, it fuses references as diverse as Marc Bolan, Jacques Brel and David Ackles (to whom 'Seeing Montana' is dedicated).
As Bill Fay wrote in his liner notes for the album, “If songs like Seeing Montana and Don’t let the Night had been recorded by an established group they would be memorable to many by now”.
"Hatter Mad" is available on CD or to download at a shop / internet site near you from June 11th, 2007.
