Product Description

“A smorgasbord of music, past, present and future. A collaboration to cherish.”

Music Week

“An epic and intricately-arranged affair that engages the listener from start to finish.”

Irish Daily Star

“Draws from the same deep well of much English folk song…”

R2 Magazine

“An insane throwback of a record. “Starship (Golden Eye)” is a hippy science fiction epic closer to Crosy Stills and Nash than Hawkwind.”

Financial Times


Debut release by The Peter Ulrich Collaboration, ‘The Painted Caravan’ marks the evolution of the Dead Can Dance and This Mortal Coil percussionist’s trademark sound and casts the net even wider, embracing the spirit of 60’s baroque pop, folk-rock and global roots to rich and often quirky effect.

If it is to be aligned to any specific genre, more than anything, his album conveys Ulrich’s passion for early 1970’s British folk rock and the ideals of the social movements of the day preside deliciously over proceedings.

“Hanging Man” is a tale of jealous love and eternal retribution; “Love’s Skeleton,” a story of love that never dies; “Starship (Golden Eye)”, a recounting of a trip through the universe to find a long-lost love; “Drug of War,” a tale of a former soldier’s addiction to the adrenalin rush of warfare; and “Pureland,” a mystic chant that carries one to a place of perfect peace and perfect understanding.

In the main, a portrait of love, in all of its protean manifestations, the album sweeps sweetly along with grandeur, solemn beauty, intricate-craftsmanship and sonic depth.

Ulrich is joined by via a cast of musical collaborators playing instruments ranging from dobro to oboe and everything in between, adorned by stunning guest vocals.

A work of passion and pure love.
