Also released in 1986, originally as a double-12″ EP.
With Barry Adamson exiting before its completion and recently acquired drummer Thomas Wydler (Die Haut) suffering from tendonitis, Harvey and Bargeld took even stronger roles in dressing Cave’s increasingly more concise prose in richly-textured and murky ambience.
Highlights are undoubtedly the Tom Waitsian carnivalesque magic of “The Carny,” the dolorously dreamy titular-track, the searing “Jack’s Shadow” and the sublimely shimmering “Stranger Than Kindness” (written by Bargeld and erstwhile Cave beau, Anita Lane).
Perhaps only the misogynist sickness of “Hard On For Love” and an overwrought interpretation of Tim Rose’s “Long Time Man” stop the composite gathering of songs from reaching into true classic realms. The refreshed mastering does however boost its dense soundscapes even more convincingly.
