The Groceries is effectively everything else that Alan Holmes does that isn’t a collaboration, well, almost. His recorded output is, and has been so prolific over the past three decades that it’s very hard to collate it all into some sort of order. That’s exactly how he likes it. When you think of Alan’s projects past and present you can only be awestruck – Third Spain, Fflaps, Ectogram, Spectralate, Serpents, Normal Shed Uses, Boreas Gogledd just to name a few. Add his production credits to Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and Super Furry Animals, his record labels Central Slate and Turquoise Coal and you get half the picture.
So to finally pin him down in session was an honour and I knew we’d been blessed with something outside the norm…
