Gleefully Unknown: 1997-2005

Posted on Updated on

A compilation of songs, spoken word and instrumentals from the first half of my gloriously unsuccessful career to date:

Now available from Spotify, Bandcamp etc

“Whilst shopping from fiffdimension make sure to get hold of ‘Gleefully Unknown’, a best-of compilation of Dave Edwards’ music from 1997 to 2005.   Rough outsider folk-blues mysteries, dissonant rock textures, electric and acoustic improvisations… Edwards strikes me as one of the most overlooked musicians from the fertile lands of New Zealand and if you need a fresh start this might very well be the place.” – Mats Gustafsson, The Broken Face
