The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"The inspiration for Sad Old Tatty Bunting came early one morning in April 2020, during the first British lockdown. I used to go for long walks between 4 and 6 in the morning. I was walking up and down streets like this, walking on the beach and prom, aimlessly and directionally illiterate.
On early morning walks, once-familiar places seemed strange.And with that change, I noticed something new that I had never seen before, or that I had no memory of seeing.

“One morning I passed by an old pub. The beer garden had a very old and rather shabby banner hanging. I began to wonder if it was there: was it hung for a long-forgotten anniversary, or was it just installed to brighten up the garden? As I started taking long walks, I started noticing trees, lampposts, and old banners hanging from the windows from time to time. I came up with the term "Sad Old Tatty Bunting" and loved it.When I told this story to my friend Douglas E. Powell, he said it sounded like the name of an old scarecrow (Tatty Bunting). I just realized I can point. What, who, or where is Sad Old Tatty Bunting?To be honest, I had no idea... but it definitely made me pursue this idea..."

Text by Andrew Young Terrascope (May 2022):

"Castles in Space is thrilled to present a timely new album from Keith Seatman - his first “extraordinary adventure” since 2020's “Time To Dream But Never Seen”. “Sad Old Tatty Bunting” is another multi layered, deeply psychedelic construction which contains collaborations with Jim Jupp (Ghost Box, Belbury Poly) and Douglas E. Powell (Broken Folk).

There's no one quite like Keith Seatman. His new album Sad Old Tatty Bunting, is a psychedelic joyride through a parallel universe, a dreamlike England full of alchemists and scarecrows and gated communities guarded by gnomes.
Bob Fischer Electronic Sound (March 2022)

Keith has gradually risen to the top of the pile of the hauntology genre. For this new album It's an album of wonky, kaleidoscopic psychedelia and has some genuinely scary moments on offer. It's like some mad, arcade feature, I am caught up again in a seemingly never ending fairground nightmare, there's a ton of synths and backwards guitar riffs vying for my attention."

Artist statement by Keith Seatman:

"The inspiration for Sad Old Tatty Bunting came about very early one morning in April 2020, during the first UK lockdown. I had taken to going for long walks between six and seven o'clock in the morning. I would stroll aimlessly and directionless up and down terraced streets, along the beach and on the prom.
On these early morning walks, places that were once very familiar to me seemed to have changed and taken on an unfamiliar feel. With this change I noticed new things, things which I had not seen before or maybe had no memory of ever seeing.

“One morning I passed an old pub. Hanging in the beer garden was some very old and quite shabby looking bunting. As I stared at the faded old colors I started to wonder why the bunting was there? Was it put up to mark a long forgotten occasion? Or had it been placed there to just brighten up the garden? As the weeks went by, I started to wander further and every now and then would notice more random old tatty bunting hanging from trees, lamp posts or in windows. theses walks an idea started to take root. I came up with and really liked the phrase Sad Old Tatty Bunting. I mentioned this to my friend Douglas E Powell who said it sounded like the name of an old scarecrow (Tatty Bunting) it was then that I realized that Sad Old Tatty Bunting could refer to many different concepts/ideas/places/books and things. What, who or even where was Sad Old Tatty Bunting? I honestly had no idea…but it was definitely an idea I was going to pursue…”
