‘Greedy Magicians’ is a collection of protest songs seething with disgust and shot through with melancholy at the state of our nation. It’s an album which responds both personally and politically, reflecting on recent events and rewriting them as chapters in a long and historic struggle of the many against the few.
Rejecting the securities of a conventional recording studio, Hill instead recorded in an 18th century church in Salford. Lit only by candles and fairy lights with around 100 people present to witness it, Hill and his fellow musicians recorded the songs totally live in single takes.
