Dylan Carlson of drone rock pioneers Earth name checks Sabbath in a recent interview for Pithfork. He cites Born Again as a key album in his musical development around the age of 15 and goes on to say that: “Sabbath is from Birmingham, England and Tony Iommi supposedly came to a festival we played there once, but I didn’t actually see him. The two women who put on that festival are always trying to get the Birmingham City Council to recognize that it’s the city of heavy metal and put up a plaque or a statue to acknowledge it.”
He is of course referring to Home of Metal. We look forward to making sure that Dylan gets to hear of our progress and plans for the summer exhibition and programme of activities across the region.
