“Bulrushes” is the opening track of “The Magical World of Mr Magpie”, the first release by Mr Magpie.
Mr Magpie is many things: a talking bird, a time-travelling mystic, and the commander-in-chief of a new Sheffield band, whose other members include local musicians Matt Alexander (Matt Alexander & the Belljar Band) and L.A. Foster (Curlicues).
Under strict orders, the terrorised hired hands are preparing a set of avian-penned home recordings, influenced by landscape and nature, as well as by bands like the Soft Boys, XTC and The Kinks.
Founding members of the Landscape Pop Collective, the trio are currently performing gigs in the Yorkshire area (both indoors and out) and plotting a DIY bicycle tour of Northern England, scheduled for April 2019.
