I must confess I bought the first FLK release hoping that it was another prank by Drummond and Cauty but thought that it was a little too obvious for them and it was just a chancer or chancers trying to dupe mugs like me into buying any old pish. I was pleasantly surprised by the cd especially the incongreous use of snippets of The Jesus and Mary Chain and Bela Lugosi's Dead in the mix with all the folk and atmospherics. And so I bought all the subsequent releases since with the exception of The Rites of Spring 12" as there were only 4 copies pressed and as I was not in London, Manchester or Leeds on the 19th April 2014 or willing to pay the hundreds of pounds that the fourth one went for on ebay. So when I recieved a tweet stating that an album would be released on the 1st September last year I ordered it. It eventually arrived towards the end of November due to all these majors hogging the pressing plants with their less than essential audiophile, 180g remastered "classic" albums the originals of which can be purchased mint of Discogs at a fraction of the price. A rant for another day. The album has since been flogged to death. The mixture of old dance ( late 80s/early 90s sounds) and even older Folk really appeals and the album would probably have had a higher placing in my albums of the year had it been received a month or so earlier.
