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
