English Heretic

English Heretic is an art collective dedicated to investigating the esoteric landscape of Britain. Part of their findings are expressed in musical projects. In their own words: "It is our task at English Heretic, ostensibly, to maintain, nurture and care for the psychohistorical environment of England. Availed of the services of some of the country's very finest occult archaeologists, astral geographers and mystical toponymists, we aim to help people decode and realise the alchemical ciphers and conspiratorial interplay of the buildings and landscapes around them.

Home Service

Home Service was a British folk rock or electric folk band, formed in late 1980 from a nucleus of musicians who had been playing in Ashley Hutchings' Albion Band. Their short career is generally agreed to have peaked with the album Alright Jack, which is usually considered one of the finest products of the electric folk genre and has been highly influential on later work. Several members of the band, including most obviously John Tams, have gone on to very successful solo careers and to take part in other significant projects.
