Oliver Cherer

'Sir Ollife Leigh & Other Ghosts' is the first LP Oliver Cherer has chosen to issue using his own name, previously working exclusively under the Dollboy moniker. The record examines loss and the end of life, with artists such as Robert Wyatt, Martin Carthy and Syd Barrett initially coming to mind as musical touchpoints.

From 'Sir Ollife Leigh & Other Ghosts' this is 'When We Shut Down'.


And in case you're not familiar with his previous work, here's Cherer in Dollboy mode, with the beautiful 'One Liner' from 2009's 'A Beard of Bees'.

Tremendous. He does like Robert Wyatt, doesn't he? And why not? Best thing I've heard and learned this week. Never heard of him before but will have to put that right. I note that he also does an Ivor Cutler cover (see Soundcloud). Good fellow.
