While cycling around his home-district of Peckham (in southeast London) a few years ago, SEAN O'HAGEN decided that not only would the new HIGH LLAMAS music be driven by narratives, a collection of stories, but they would first have to be performed as theatre; reshaped theatre, if you like, blending stories, songs and soundtrack. It was essential for these performances to take place before the songs and underscores were recorded. The resultant piece, Here Come The Rattling Trees, introduces six characters, some real, some less so, whom Sean has encountered over past years in Peckham. It is also The High Llamas new LP. Here Come The Rattling Trees was first performed in the Montpelier Theatre pub in Peckham in June 2014, and in October 2014, it played for a week-long run at the Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden, London. With witty, artful musical strokes, Sean and The High Llamas have crafted deft musical sketches with the signature “Llamas” sound that has evolved over ten album releases since 1992. A colorful array of electric, acoustic, and synthetic instruments, alongside Sean O’Hagan’s gentled vocals, are deployed to transport the listener to the low-key highs and lows of the British working week—an incisive, sympathetic view to the wonders slipped in between the pages and too often passed over in everyday life.
