DAWSON, RICHARD - THE GLASS TRUNK (LP & 10")


"Edition of 250, 180 gram LPs & 10". Housed in fold out silk screened sleeve featuring images from and inspired by the Tyne & Wear archives. The bold new album from Newcastle composer and outsider-artist Richard Dawson. Comprised of seven startling unaccompanied songs delivered with a peculiar intensity and way-way-off-kilter virtuosity, each interspersed with a perception-mincing couplet of electrified acoustic guitar and pedal-harp (played by the legendary Rhodri Davies), the album is a devastating, wholly idiosyncratic meditation on death and life, violence and love, memory and fog - a rousing Northumbrian song-painting like nothing else you will hear!!!"
