Frog Pocket is John Charles Wilson from Ayr (Ayrshire, Scotland). He has been active and prolific within the scottish scene since 1996. Mouthmoth, his own small record label, is surely the best in Scotland for weird and oblique electronic music. Frog Pocket's music is truly personal and innovative, and with the passing of time his unique "broken beats" technique has reached the state of the art. John defines his music as "splatterbeat folk". This description may sound strange but it's probably the most appropriate. The key to most of his tunes is juxtaposition, where gritty complex and fascinating percussive beds are placed against lyrical musical lines. Beautiful guitar melodies and ambient textures fill his tracks and a fiddle also appears each now and then bringing in the joy and sadness of traditional scottish music.
