#392 Heg and the Wolf Chorus – Giant

If Jack and the Beanstalk had featured a crazed-eyed angry woman and the threat of being locked away to dance for eternity in a picture frame, I suspect we’d all have been significantly more terrified as wee children.

Heg and the Wolf Chorus have taken this ubiquitous English fairytale and made it sing, with the roaring pace of some big bass drums, a lyrical reworking of the giant’s threat with a clear-cut, crisp delivery. It’s a bit mad, a bit fun, and really very good folk.
