c.w.k. joynes & the restless dead To Samarkand for Prester John / Jones Norwich Cathedrals (hand numbered 7", £3.75)label: Great Pop Supplement
This one's a beauty; A side 'To Samarkand For Prester John' features the crude instrumentation and brute choir of The Dead Rat Orchestra (freshly back from their hugely successful European tour as guests of Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and was recorded at St. Martin's Church in Colchester and mixed in Asmara and Addis Ababa. The reverse features the found sounds and homemade instruments of Norwich sound artists Babygrand, with Glen Hall, collaborator with Gil Evans, Roswell Rudd and Lee Ranaldo, broadcasting from Toronto on tenor saxophone. Like its predecessors comes handsomely dressed in die-cut sleeves and in an edition of 300 copies.
