From 1968 to 1974, amateur songwriters Peter Howell and John Ferdinando crafted a series of privately-issued albums rarely heard outside their East Sussex base. Over the years these records sold for astronomical sums due to their rarity, quality plus attribution to semi-fictitious groups including Ithaca and Agincourt.

Jason Barnard speaks to Peter and John to uncover their story as their material is released in the A Game For All Who Know: The H & F Recordings Box. This set gathers the first four albums and plus an unreleased-at-the-time fifth, the Friends LP Fragile. Fragile was abandoned at acetate stage after Peter joined the BBC Radiophonic Workshop full-time: thestrangebrew.co.uk/articles/peter-howell-and-john-ferdinando
