LEMON TREE

LEMON TREE

Forest Parties

Mark Kingsley is an analogue engineer, a gifted musician and a reclusive madman locked away in Jurassic Coast Studios in Dorset . Paul Bacon is a slightly less gifted musician who discovered his inherent composition skills (mother was a classically trained pianist) when he stated using computers for production in the early nineties. Together they are Lemon Tree.

They have between them a background of indie releases with several projects, sessions on the John Pell show on BBC radio and live session work with bands such as Bauhaus. The last session on the Peel show was the catalyst for a legal dispute between Channel 4 and the BBC over the band’s name, The Bandung File which was in fact the name of a low ratings and obscure Asian concerns programme on Channel 4 (oops). Lemon Tree are a cacophony of ambient Textures with flamenco, robots, tractors, dolphins and Japanese violas all occupying the same psychedelic landscape.
