Bone Spoon

from by Madame Česki

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    An alluring 12 page colour booklet and gatefold case.
    Artwork exclusively crafted by Scottish embroiderer Scott Ramsay Kyle.
    Includes lyrics for each track (in English).

    Performed on instruments such as strings, dulcitone, harpsichord and saw, Madame Česki creates a tapestry of songs in a folk tradition. Her topics include birds, spinning wheels and spoons made out of bone.

    Madame Česki's biography includes performing with Gruff Rhys, Collectress, 10 Mewn Bws, Marques Toliver, Fiona Bevan and Orphans&Vandals, yet this is her first step in front of the mirror.

    The songs are rough hewn from the mountains, with eerie remembrances and obsessive patterns, recorded naively, with devilish vocals and strings.

    Includes unlimited streaming of PALIMPSEST via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

I gave you a bone spoon, a spoon made of bone
Take it and keep it to have in your home
When the egg's ready - it will crack!
So line up your soldiers from front and to back

The yolk it is yellow, the circle is white
So taste it, and lick it, and eat it up right
Oh egg! You're so salty, and sweet, and hot
Your tongue it is hungry and eats every drop

Bone spoon, bone spoon, bone spoon, bone spoon

But why don't you use it?
You threw it away!
Buried in the ground for another day
The soil it is sticky - your fingers are black!
Poor spoon is covered as you turn your back

Yet the spoon is growing to a tall tree -
The Bone Tree is born! For you and for me
So do not go hungry with your bone spoon -
Come see me, and bring it, and let it be soon

Bone spoon, bone spoon, bone spoon, bone spoon
