  • Availability:

We have received a lot of tapeworms from the cassette line Tapeworm of the long-established British sound label Touch.This work is a solo work by Peter Hope-Evans, a former member of the blues band Medicine Head.All 12 songs, plenty of 60 minutes recorded.It is already out of print.

 

Edition of 200. 

Peter Hope-Evans was a member of seventies blues band Medicine Head, a favorite of John Peel, and here, offers up some skeletal home recorded stripped down blues, just guitar and harmonica, recorded on a boat, floating on a canal, sometime in 2010. The liner notes point to some relevant precursors / inspirations: The Coasters / Donovan / Sleepy John Estes / Blind Mamie Forehand / The Fugs / Skip James / Peggy Lee / Lotte Lenya / Sherrie Levine / Uncle Dave Macon / Moby Grape, and we definitely buy that, but this is essentially some acoustic blues, the guitars minimal, the harmonica soulful, the vocals sung / spoken, the vibe is super intimate, easy to imagine, windows open, the sounds seeping in from all around the canal, candles lit, much alcohol imbibed, and a long night of just jamming in the dark, simpler stripped down old school blues ...
