Johnny Flynn And The Sussex Wit have announced Live At The Roundhouse, to be released on double CD and triple vinyl, via Transgressive Records on 30th November

Live At The Roundhouse is an electric performance of ten years’ worth of songs; recorded without overdubs, it pays homage to the past whilst pointing propitiously to the group’s future

Today’s album announcement is accompanied by the release of the live version of The Night My Piano Upped And Died, captured from this magical evening. The visual for the release has been designed by Joe Zeitlin and Hanna-Katrina Jedrosz, originally used as the backdrop for the performance…

Johnny, reflecting on the performance and release, states: “On 17 October 2017 we played a gig at The Roundhouse in Camden. It marked the end of a period of touring, following the release of ‘Sillion’ earlier in the year. The show happened around the ten-year-anniversary of recording our first album ‘A Larum’. It felt like a special night in lots of ways, but mostly because all our best beloveds were there and we were able to celebrate our friendship as a band and the music we have been making since those early days in the backrooms of pubs and flats, mostly a stone’s throw from The Roundhouse”

On the night, Johnny and the Sussex Wit – alongside honorary member Cosmo Sheldrake – tore through a hand-picked selection of songs from their formidable back catalogue which spans four studio albums, one EP and scores for film and television. The album also features a bonus studio cut; the much requested and never released 3-verse rendition of Johnny’s ‘Detectorists’ theme
