Most recent release, Strange News (2013)
Own and traditional
I'm not really sure that they're suitable as ecto-fodder, but they're certainly strange and wonderful. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
1987—P&C Some Bizarre
U.K. (vinyl only)
Nigel Eaton—hurdy gurdy
Recorded live in Brazil. Entirely instrumental. Very raw and compelling sound on this one. (email@example.com)
1988—Plant Life Records
Similar in flavor to Vanilla, though perhaps not quite as good. Recommended as a second buy. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1990—Special Delivery Records
Andy Cutting—melodeons, percussion
Perhaps not normal ecto-fodder. Still VERY highly recommended for those with more outlandish taste, and anyone who appreciates killer hurdy-gurdy playing. A mixture of traditional folk tunes and new, very upbeat tunes. Some very old-English sounding vocals, but mostly instrumental. (email@example.com)
