Biography

Like the unearthing of an Alan Lomax recording or a gem from some back-room of Cecil Sharpe house; Luke Jones’ Lux Harmonium is doubtless to be cited next to modern day guitar virtuosos’ James Blackshaw, Glenn Jones or the late Jack Rose.

Details are few (seemingly intentionally) but this double A-Side is handpicked from an album of recordings by the Devon based Luke Jones. Treading somewhere between the delta folk world of John Fahey or Leo Kottke and an altogether more outsider pop of Robert Wyatt; Lux Harmonium manage to take a menagerie of influences and make them sound altogether… well… old! It really is an analogue affair, timeless and strangely classic.

“Lux feel like one of those bands/artists that you just want to play to everyone you know. I couldn’t understand what his hands were doing when I saw him live, I guess it is as close as i’ll get to seeing Burt Jansch in some crummy early 60’s Glasgow club. The record or whatever it was he played me, is so emotive. It was both utterly perfect and crystalline, but hand crafted and woozy. I think you could listen to it anytime between 1925 and 2075… Proper time capsule stuff!” - R.G.Morrison, Drift Record Shop
