Taken from the critically acclaimed album, Diversions Vol. 4 – The Songs And Poems Of Molly Drake, The Unthanks release Do You Ever Remember? The accompanying film includes Super 8 footage of the Drake family, much of which has never been seen before, except live during the recent tour by The Unthanks of their Molly Drake project.
It is thought that the footage, which centres around Nick Drake’s christening at the age of three, was recorded by a professional, and not by husband and father Rodney Drake, who recorded the songs Molly wrote in the sitting room of their home, inspiring The Unthanks to produce some of their best interpretive work yet, alongside Gabrielle Drake, whose voice can be heard reciting the poetry of her mother towards the end of the single.
Final Molly Drake show:
The Unthanks have just announced what is to be their last Molly Drake show for the foreseeable future, in a grand Spiegeltent, in the grounds of the beautiful Piece Hall, Halifax, December 22nd.
