Ancient Champion

Ancient Champion only ever communicates with us online so, so much we don't know. Proud Citizen of Nowhere is the response when we ask where you from? We do know they have an collection of instrumental music in the works, they're releasing a single each month, A Songs for Older Skins was the first of these. They say, imagine old skins, tamed by time, but still keen on the beat, just needing a way more temperate pace... Easy Listening for Difficult People... 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.
