about

“Matthew Hopkins and The Wormhole”, by Kevin Pearce, is the follow up to his 2011 debut album “Pocket Handkerchief Lane”.

This new album is a dark and haunting collection of songs which evoke the flat, grey skied landscapes of pastoral Essex villages like Mistley and Manningtree, which are home to Pearce and historically, Matthew Hopkins, the legendary Witchfinder General.

The album is presented in two acts.

Act 1 is the original version of the album as recorded by Pearce and his Essex musical cohorts.

Act 2 is an electronic reinterpretation of the songs by artist/producer Dean Honer
( I Monster, The All Seeing I, Add N to X ) .

Over some tankards of ale in a Mistley drinking establishment which was once owned by Hopkins, Pearce and Honer hatched the idea of taking this new Arcadian album and producing a futuristic mirror of it, juxtaposing the acoustic with the electronic.

A journey through a wormhole to a parallel dimension!
