The Tobacconists – A Secret Place
June 25, 2014 Leave a comment
The countdown goes further. Here’s the second release from me this week! Another one I am very proud off. The Tobacconists are Scott Foust and me and in 2012 also with a third member, Mike Popovich. We rehearsed our opera ‘Smoking Is Green’ and in between recorded material for two LPs. One is this one, while other is a strong, rhythmical one (think Second Layer, Cabaret Voltaire) still waiting to find a home somewhere. Scott and I worked long distance on the mixes and Jos Smolders did a smashing job on the mastering. The b-side is dedicated to Anton Viergever, who died, very close to this date actually come to think of it again. The record is a release by A Giant Fern (Portugal) in close collaboration with Fabrica Discos in the USA. Fucking awesome cover too. Oh boy (as mister Kimble would say)! I believe limited to 300 copies.
