Lancashire Folklore Tapes marks its sixth and Megalithic Monuments its second instalment with cinematic depictions of two fantastical tales to emerge from the legendary Monstone, found alongside an ancient trackway on the Whitworth moors.

Two gems have been plucked from antiquarian obscurity and re-animated through new sonic-movements and illustrations. The tale of The Baum Rabbit has been scored by Sam McLoughlin with five new woodcuts by Bob Frith. The tale of Mother Red Cap has been scored by David Chatton Barker with six new paintings by Lucy Atherton. Arriving just in time for All Hallows, this exquisite release comes housed in a gatefold sleeve with full colour story booklet and stone rubbing.
