john clyde-evans | delf songs

a collection of recordings made on a borrowed 4-track over a week that demonstrate very clearly what jce brought to those first few hood releases (this was recorded in the same year as "silent '88"). fragments of songs, ethereal and distorted, with scraped violins, jangled guitars, clarinet, keyboards, even a bit of singing now and then. all with this layer of hiss that turns the 4-track into another instrument almost, giving it a dreamy quality that i miss from latter hood records (though i still love them).

this and the [for ht/rp/j&s] album are the only jce releases i have - if you have any others then please let me know; i'd love to hear them.

tape released by cakehole in 1996.

get it.
