Industrial Sounds and Magic
Ladies and gentlemen please be upstanding for the Reverend.
Industrial Sounds and Magic is the 1991 debut solo album on the Cooking Vinyl label by English folk rock artist Stephen Ryan better known as Rev Hammer.
According to his website the album was recorded in a cow shed in Essex on a budget of nothing with a little help from his friends. The friends in question being The Levellers who provide the backing duties.
As well as a chum of the Levellers he was a founder member of The Red Sky Coven with poet Joolz and Justin Sullivan of New Model Army fame.
He also subsequently performed with members of the Levellers as Drunk in Public.
