Ancient Champion

Ancient Champion only ever communicates with us online so, we don't know much. World Citizen, is the response when we ask where they're from. We do know they have an album of instrumental music in the works, namely, Songs for Older Skins. They say, imagine old skins, tamed by time, but still keen on the beat, just needing a way more temperate pace... The Ancient Champion says this music can only be released correctly through a French indie record label... While we're waiting for that, there's a collection of extremely short stories, six stories about motoring nowhere as part of the SideCartel's Sextet series, due towards the end of 2018. Looking forwards to all that.
