The snow had long since melted around that cold, grim warehouse…unbridled chaos in every cranny, my visions grainy and gore-sodden…some crap wagon took me back there- the ticking and picking made me buckle and submit…I shivered in existential gloom, swung creaky doors in a meat-strewn basement…I stepped out into that afternoon while UFOs screamed in heat…my brain bubbled with colour and fire…with bloodied stone and insect platters…hooray for listlessness, hooray for madness!!

2005-centric fun for all the family!! Remember that prehistoric river safari?? I thought not…self-deprecation and public speaking…preening and pouting with a white Strat…in awe and in the raw in porches and bunkers. As for the other bits…well, once I tried to re-record “Who Was I Kidding?”…I got 7 songs in before giving up…here be 5 of them, plus the intended centrepiece of the ultimate stalled Gonk Folly (“Fungally Seductive”- arrggh!!) to wrap things up. I gave the song a fresh lick of bass and re-did some of the REALLY ROUGH STUFF during a PRETTY SAD TIME, but it’s all good…

Another insanely huge serving of Filthy Tape Soup for ye- piping hot and packed with lumpy bits of unknown origin. 2000 was an odd bird…very much a game o’ two halves…a lot of the source sounds came from the first…all suspect tuning and wardrobe boredom…blues turned doomy…noise got noisier…pre-everything, really…longest night nightmares and four stringed solace…pitter-patterings on the bed and screams in the street…not yet windswept, not yet transfixed…laughing and sniffling, not bricked in or gated…not yet beached, not yet sunken…plunking and pining, not a chance in heaven…

Dreams and ideals- rarely surplus to requirements…the hidey-hole was bare, all things were quite silent…we wept as they dropped, all secretions in white…hot palms on cold marble, thank goodness for ‘the system’…filming and drooling, charming and ‘self-harming’…lingering into the afternoon, gone by the morning…dreams and ideals- amped and cranked, with just a minute to spare…
This reissue of the “Brief Slumber of the Sad Vampires” cassette is bolstered by 4 bonus pieces recorded around the same time (summer 2015).
Blue transparent C50 cassette in a clear case with full colour artwork and tape label, plus an insert.
All of these cassettes were initially released in December 2015.
I’m currently working on several brand spanking new releases, including a pair of 4-way split cassettes, which I’m particularly excited about. Expect these a bit later this year…hopefully!!
Until then, stay safe and well…
