Dumaresq - Homunculus     Folk, Soul, Pop 18/05/2018
After playing in a number of bands from an early age, 2018 has seen Joe Kneipp land at the forefront of his very own solo project - Dumaresq.
It is bout autonomy, about the possibility that within each person there can be different levels of experience. My interpretation of the term comes from the alchemy tradition, from the idea that if you kept sperm in a certain way (took care of it) you could grow a tiny human.

Andy Warhol is a song of fleeting thoughts. It’s about home, loss, friendship and two slightly controversial tattoo’s. The song makes me think of my late old man's sense of humour, great love of mountains and his ability to form friendships anywhere and everywhere.
