cwk joynes & the restless dead
8 selections & premonitions from the tower, vol.iv

This one's a beauty! 'A' side 'To Samarkand For Prester John' features the crude instrumentation & brute choir of The Dead Rat Orchestra, recorded at St Martins Church in Colchester & mixed in Asmara & Addis Ababa.
Beautiful drone & wailing vocals in perfect tandem with C Joynes' expressive, thumb led picking - lovely stuff. The reverse, 'Joynes Norwich Cathedrals' features the found sounds & homemade instruments of Norwich sound artists Babygrand, with Glen Hall, collaborator with Gil Evans, Roswell Rudd & Lee Ranaldo, broadcasting from Toronto on tenor saxophone. comes handsomely dressed in a die-cut sleeve & is hand numbered in an edition of 350 copies.
