Time Is Away - A Very Cellular Song

London, 18.04.16

This month’s programme is an exploded view of one of our favourite pieces of music, The Incredible String Band’s ‘A Very Cellular Song’. The track, from the band’s 1968 masterpiece The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter, is the loose inspiration for an hour of amoebas, early music and the mid-century Edinburgh literary avant-garde. With contributions from the ISB, David Attenborough, David Monrow and the Pinder Family.
