#528 William Henry – The Waltz

‘The Shrunken Head’ sounds to us like some characterful old pub, probably in a harbour town, full of dodgy sorts looking for a quick swindle. If you’re imagining this scene, add if you will a live performer, and you might very well get the full-blooded sounds of William Henry – Will Ibbetsons to his friends – whose music has an old-world quality amid its charms. Of course, the Shrunken Head is in fact a recording studio in Nunhead, south London, but we’ll pay that no mind as we’re quite happy in the little dream world this song has taken us to.
