Maltworms, Issue 1, Part 4.
Welcome, curious reader, to the barely believable world of Peter Warlock and Ernest John Moeran - connoisseurs of fine ale, tireless draft-dodgers, and bastards extraordinaire. And in between these important regular activities, composers of some of the finest British music of the day.
Join the mythical vagabonds and their companions in inebriation - Frederick Delius, Eric Fenby and Augustus John - in their escapades and delight as they evade the Draftsman, annoy the hell out of D. H. Lawrence, drink entire villages dry, and generally make a thorough nuisance of themselves.
Maltworms’ mission statement (besides being charming and damned funny) is to increase awareness of Warlock’s music, and is loosely based around real events in his life and those of his friends and associates.
The man, the myth, the music. All brought to life in one loving tribute.
