Paper-Thin Religion (Solo Archives 1977-1981)

KARL BLAKE

CD Jewel-Box (USE0 131-02CD) -

Rare album!

The second volume of Karl Blake's home recorded doodlings.
The leftovers from Prehensile Tales,but still a fine overview of Blakes twisted version of dream-logic songcraft.
Very DIY Avant Rock, and includes another welcome inclusion of the "BBC Sounds Effect Volume Two" LP, that everyone in DIY land has used on some occasion.
The David Lynch of home recording.
