Can I ask, is 'Housecarpenter / I Curse The Day' the Marry Waterson / Oliver Knight song 'I Curse The Day'?
Some years ago Rachel wrote a modern gloss on The Housecarpenter which we now feature as Housecarpenter Part Two. It takes it's name from the opening line I curse the day that he walked back into my life.... It's the only track on the album which isn't (strictly speaking) live, using the vocal from a different take against the Kaossilator drone from another. We also looped the last line on the coda as it (according to the Sunday Times) dissolves into a pagan fug though the effect we were going for was a blue-lagoon serenity akin to Sailing By - we were even thinking of licensing a sample!
