The Caretaker is all about lost memories, amnesia and nostalgia to old times. Creating a deep beautiful, but sometimes sinister atmosphere he tries to take you back in your personal history through electronic ambient music. Pleasant memories, bad dreams, being alone in the dark, all these emotions overtake the listener. If you’ve seen the Kubrick movie ‘The Shining’, you will get an idea of the beautiful but disturbing feelings The Caretaker tries to evoke.
The Wire is now offering a free exclusive Caretaker download, composed especially for The Wire, complete with embedded artwork. In James’s own words it’s “emotional for these turbulent times of wonder we find ourselves in”. The track is unavailable anywhere else. And remember, The Caretaker will also play ZXZW Festival 2009!
