Bark Psychosis – ‘SCUM’
This 12” ‘single’ by post rock legends Bark Psychosis, is a beautifully haunting masterpiece, with incredibly powerful artwork to accompany. Improvised and recorded live in the band's ‘home’ of St John's Church in 1992, SCUM experimented with the use of space and extreme dynamics, with music that varied between minimal jazzy chording, airy acoustic drums, clamorous noise guitar, space-ambience and random vocal snippets. You can hear why the band have been credited as genre defining.
Now comes complete reinvention of the original 1992 3rd Stone Records vinyl, and the first ever release for Rolling Heads. With artwork true to the Toby MacFarlan Pond original photograph, SCUM has been fully remastered at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell, with the help of frontman Bark Psychosis, Graham Sutton.
It will be pressed in 180g heavyweight black vinyl, and packaged in luxury sleeve, whilst boasting something a little different to the original.
This is a beautiful must listen release.
Edition of 1000
