Corkbots are recycled robots; made from leftover things.
The Company of Corkbots is a small media company, which releases folkloric alt-pop music created by the Queen of Corkbots, currently equating to a track a month.
The unapologetically chirpy Track for March from the Queen of Corkbots is a traditional folk song originally sung by a chimney sweep from Devon by the name of Dickie Lashbrook. Dickie was recorded by song-collector Peter Kennedy in the 1950s and ended up on the Alan Lomax Songs of Seduction collection as the inaugural track – Blackbirds and Thrushes. Hares on the Common is her interpretation of this song. There have been many recordings of the better known Hares on the Mountain since the 1960s.
Arranged, performed, recorded and mixed by the Queen of Corkbots. Mastered by musician-producer Myles Cochran. Released by the Company of Corkbots on Thursday 17th March 2016.
