Bunyan - aka ‘The Godmother of Psychedelic Folk’ - was originally discovered by ROLLING STONES manager Andrew Loog Oldham, releasing her first single, the Jagger-Richards penned ‘Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind’, on Decca in 1965. Initially promoted as the new Marianne Faithfull she made her debut proper following the horse-and-cart Hebridean road trip which inspired the Joe Boyd-produced ‘Just Another Diamond Day’, featuring members of INCREDIBLE STRING BAND and FAIRPORT CONVENTION. The record - released in 1970 - failed to achieve lift-off but over the years acquired a cult following as a lost English classic, sold on eBay for as much as $2000 and was re-released in 2000, inspiring a new generation of folk artists, among them JOANNA NEWSOM, VETIVER, ESPERS, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and DEVENDRA BANHART. ‘Lookaftering’ (2005) and the 2-CD compilation ‘Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind’ (2007) consolidated Bunyan’s reputation - and her iconic music eventually reached millions anyway when ‘Just Another Diamond Day’ and ‘Train Song’ were used in TV ads by T-Mobile, Reebok and Samsung.
