martyn bates Imagination Feels Like Poison (CD, £11.75)label: Hand/Eye
1st U.S. issue of a full length solo lp by the stunniing vocalist & founding member of EYELESS IN GAZA. Originally released in 1997, it is primarily a collection of songs that are brightly bittersweet, conjuring up ghostly & vivid invocations of folk/ psych. Voice, and suprisingly, banjo are the principal instruments that carry the music, fleshed out by the inventive use of autoharp, percussion, whistles & pump organ.
