Fascinator was the latest guest at the Live at Enmore studios. Dishing up a three-song blend dubbed the Happy Cloud Water Medley, it was a wild ride.
Not content with the customary single song offering at a Live at Enmore session, Fascinator dished up a triple song medley. Combining elements of Cloud Cave, My Own Private I Don’t Know and International Waters, the session redefined ‘epic’.
Accompanied by Ja Do on sax and Cami Parr on flute, it was more of a journey than a recording session, with a mixture of ambience, improvisation, pile-driving beats and memorable hooks from the Lord Fascinator himself.
This session provided an extra special treat: two of the three songs — Cloud Cave and International Waters — were sneak peeks of tracks that are yet to be released. The centrepiece track, My Own Private I Don’t Know appears on Fascinator’s most recent record, Water Sign.
Here’s what the Lord Fascinator (aka Johnny Mackay) had to say before plugging in:
“We normally just get on stage with no rehearsal and see what happens. It’s nice to document it for once!”
Settle in for the trip and check out the session below:
