It's psyche folk a go-go with Marc and Erland and the Carnival. Plus Rob Hughes will be enticing Marc into the Parallel Universe.

Kings of freaky folk Erland and the Carnival are Orkney born Erland Cooper plus Simon Tong (once of The Verve, Blur and The Good, the Bad & the Queen) and David Nock (the drummer from Paul McCartney's The Fireman offshoot). They took their name from the Jackson C Frank tune "My Name is Carnival", which they've also covered.

Their current single is the Derby Ram, which apparently has little to do with sheep.

They're on tour through out the UK in September and play the home of British folk Music Cecil Sharp House on the 26th .
