There Was No One Else I Could Tell
There Was No One Else I Could Tell is the first new music in a while from one of Outsideleft's most beloved contributors, Ancient Champion. It's available now from all of the usual online outlets.
On first listen, it's another slice of AC's patented Easy listening for difficult people. Who but the wholly obstreperous could enjoy?
"The dreams remain. To be the first easy indie rocker to get on the cover of SAGA. Is there a better reason to do it?" Ancient Champion says, "Oh and to drive legacy rock bands off the airwaves. I'd like that too."
The spare instrumentation is bolstered by the Bearwood Mountain Man on guitar. And there's an accompanying video conceived and directed by the enigma that is director Lewis Tulpa, shot on location in Bearwood.
It's Bearwood all the time.
Ancient Champion directed by Lewis Tulpa

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
