Ed AskewImperfiction ... LP
Galactic Zoo Disk/Drag City, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
Murky folk music made with a portable 2 track cassette recorder, a mic, a kit harpsichord, an acoustic guitar by one heck of a dizzyingly creative figure! It's both strange and effective, with one memorable tune after another. The songs are ones that Askew wrote in the preceding handful of years, ones he knew pretty deep down by this point but were never before recorded, and it's the kind of crackling low fi effort that's a major precurssor to indie folk to come – whether the late comers ever heard of Askew or not! Includes "Boy With A Hat", "Hitchhiking", "Deep Water", "At Home In The Factory", "Tom", "House Of Embers", "Art And Life", "Buddha Smiles" and "This Is The End". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert.)
