From The Planets

Spectral Bazaar are the Manchester based duo of Dave Clarkson on synths, electronics and mixing, and Ruth Davies on cello, flute and oboe. Their debut album The Planets offers an alternative audio trip round the solar system to Gustav Holst’s The Planets suite, composed more than a hundred years ago. Clarkson is also a member of Scissorgun alongside Crispy Ambulance’s Alan Hempsall, and he records solo for the Linear Obsessional label.,
