Mourning Phase - Mourning Phase CD

SKU 23-SCD 012
“Extremely complex progressive folk rock, with unique, literate lyrics that poetically manifest the gnarled emotions of a bitter break up, with acerbic guitar strumming and controlled anger. Mourning Phase have remained shrouded in mystery since 1971.
This is the first ever legal edition, all previous editions were without the band’s consent. Phenomenally rare test pressing, thought to be only 25 copies made. Only two had hand-drawn covers: one is long lost in a private collection, and here seen for the first time ever is the accompanying decorated sleeve.
Mike Conn lives in a cave in Spain, still playing music, and has pursued the life of a hermit since leaving England. The co-singer, Joy, became a session artist working with Mickey Jupp amongst others, and performed on Top of The Pops singing a British top 10 hit; she has been in hiding in the Norfolk hinterlands ever since. The three surviving members tell their stories in the sleevenotes, including the long lost Mike Conn, the songwriter.
Reproduces the second, hitherto unseen, handmade cover and band photos. An original example recently sold for £9,000 on Discogs.”
