Format: 12"
Label: Modern Masters
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Produced and released by Richard Kelly, the mad genius behind the original CLUB FOOT ORCHESTRA and THE ALTERBOYS, these brilliantly sparse compositions revel in terse and choppy guitar, the languid, sour leakage of keyboards and horns, and occasional lyrics sung as ironic disclaimer, while the spare yet vaguely ominous bass lines recall GANG OF FOUR played back at 4 RPM." Original copies of this 1982 release back in stock. Along with the 7", recently reissued on Table Of The Elements.

"..sparse, stripped-down but sparkling guitar, horns, piano, bass and drums, a sprinkling of ironically humorous lyrics, and hooky melodies that grab attention." Original copies of this 1983 release back in stock. Along with the 12", recently reissued on Table Of The Elements.

Artist: ARKANSAW MAN
Title: Arkansaw Man
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Here is the unlikely CD debut of Arkansaw Man, a wildly obscure San Francisco art-punk band that flickered to life all so briefly in 1981. 25 minutes of music, 25 years ago -- and sayonara. Still, the best things in life -- in the life of music, anyway -- often are tucked away where they are hard to find. With a brilliant economy of means and a sparseness reminiscent of dub, the band got an amazing jump start on post-rock. It revels in terse and choppy guitar, the languid, sour leakage of keyboards and horns, and occasional lyrics sung as ironic disclaimer, while the spare yet vaguely ominous bass lines recall Gang of Four played back at 4 RPM. A quarter of a century ago, the spindly funk machinery and discordant scraping guitars of Arkansaw Man failed to give the world much to latch onto, so its music got lost, abandoned in a locker at pop cultures bus depot, the key left floating in a gutter somewhere one day to be scavenged. Theres no better place to find a glimmer of artistic gold." - Table Of The Elements.
