  • The first edition of the Isobel Gowdie project: a full 8" square 16-page booklet of artwork and lyrics, plus a cd of the album. This concept album is a collaboration between artist Julia Jeffrey and Gillian Chadwick of Ex Reverie. Working closely together for years, Gillian wrote songs and Julia created full-scale paintings inspired by the legendary confessions of Isobel Gowdie. Put on trial for witchcraft in 1662, Isobel's testimonies are infamous and as powerful today as they have ever been.

    Recorded with a version of Ex Reverie composed of some of Glasgow's finest musicians (members of Big Hogg, The Hidden Masters, Trembling Bells, and Trashcan Sinatras) on location in an old mill building in the shadow of castle ruins in Strathaven, Scotland, the album takes a heavy psychedelic trip through the world of a defiant witch. Full of powerful freedom and gleeful malice, Isobel's story is one of raw sexual and magical energy. A woman under heavy societal and religious restrictions, Isobel chose the act of total rebellion in the face of danger and judgement. A complicated and inspiring heroine for our times.

lyrics

Last night upon the hour when
good men hope to be safe inside
We took to the dark sky on an
endlessly long flight
To Downie Mountain we sought
That Hall that lies beneath
Guarded at the gates by rearing bulls
with gnashing teeth

The sky went the color of old blood
salt and sulphur filled our lungs
I saw it clearly that there was no going back
the way we'd come
The only course left to us then
was the one with which we are born
Go forward with ferocity
at all moments, go on


For it may be now that there is no land left that truly exists
For we have several times now seen it dissolve right into the mist
