Clare Archibald Those Times Bill Callahan Came to Fife and Hung Out In Scotland

14th July 2023

Format Info


A 52 page limited edition zine plus 4 pages of full image inner and outer covers, an opening essay and original photography, pastel drawings and mixed media images and autofictive text by Clare Archibald. The zine is a blurring of the real and imagined in relation to the great singer/ songwriter/musician Bill Callahan, and the interactions of place, memory and music. It is a tongue in cheek look at the actual and potential resonances of those who create work for the public domain and how we weave music, personas and their mingling, real or otherwise into our day to day perceptions of place. It is also an image based exploration of what of the private we make public, in what form and why. On his travels through Fife and other parts of Scotland, Bill hangs out with people he meets along the way including Bonnie Prince Billy, Julian Cope, Ian McCulloch, Angel Olsen, Lankum and lots more, ending up in some unexpected and dare I say banal situations.
