Bonnie Prince Billy live dates

On 29 March 2010 Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy & The Cairo Gang (Emmett Kelly and Shahzad Ismaily) released The Wonder of The World album on Domino on CD and vinyl formats.

The three have perviously recorded together for the album Lie Down In The Light, whilst Bonnie and Emmett have also recorded together with others on the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy albums The Letting Go and Beware as well as the EP CHIJIMI. For this new album of songs, Bonny Billy and The Cairo Gang together have built a bridge forward, assembled with riffs and bits from Emmett Kelly’s guitar and the lyricism of Bonny’s heart. But mostly, The Wonder Show of the World was, in it’s making, about trust. It’s a record made eye-to-eye in a room, close and careful, by and for a few men who wanted to be together, who wanted to make music that sounds as good to listen to as it did to make, and who in doing so forged something new in space, the wonder of you and of them.
