British band Another Green World have been recording and performing the most chilled, festival friendly soundscapes since 1984.
They came together for their first performance, an extended 4 hour improvisation, in Chislehurst caves, in 1984 (on a psychedelic mystery trip organised by Christian Paris of London underground club Alice in Wonderland).
Another Green World are the ultimate chill out, featuring ethereal keyboard wizard Paul Chousmer and psychonaut saxophonist Dan 'Spannerman' Carpenter. Between them producing an eclectic blend of electronica, woodwind and percussion, with melodies strongly influenced by the likes of Erik Satie, Holger Czukay, the Klezmer tradition and Lee 'Scratch' Perry.
In the years since their formation they have witnessed the birth of Club Dog, played live parachute sets at Whirl-Y-Gig, appeared at Megadog, The Big Chill and Return To The Source, became stalwarts of the festival scene, appearing regularly at WOMAD, Phoenix and Guildford festivals, also the early Glastonbury festivals, and a host of free festies and benefit gigs - anyone remember the Blue House in Hackney? - recent performances include ..SOLFEST in Cumbria and 'Faery Fest' in Cornwall.
