Ceramic Hobs 'Black Pool Legacy' 2xLP
This double LP retrospective of the North of England's most unique, overlooked and long-lasting underground band spans 25 years of recordings, with tracks taken from numerous releases carefully selected and sequenced by Philip Best (Consumer Electronics), ergot trip front cover art from John Godbert (Vibracathedral Orchestra), gatefold bad vibe intricate line drawing from Darren Brian Adcock and a twelve page booklet featuring an extended interview/essay by Chris Sienko and a band family tree. Rock music but with voodoo curse words, twisting spiralling synths and guitars, overloaded samples: the sound of impending mental collapse overpowering the unwary listener.
