England, now

Richard DawsonJogging (single)
How old is Richard Dawson? He sounds somewhere between 50 and 500 years old, but has the freshly-bruised innocence of a gentle baker in a folk-tale. To screw with this question even more, he’s just followed an entire album about 6th Century Anglo-Saxon society with a single that captures a distinctly modern English mindset. Other than hip-hop, Britain’s alternative music scene has been struggling since Simon Cowell’s reign of terror. With that in mind, Richard Dawson looks increasingly radical. His authorial voice is as unpretentious and autobiographical as the lines around his eyes.
