Artist: FARQUHAR, JW
Title: The Formal Female
Format: LP
Label: Brainblobru
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"180 gram exact repro reissue of this absolutely insular, deranged private press masterpiece. JW Farquhar recorded this on 4-track alone in his apartment in 1972 after ending a 10-year marriage. The songs are part of a "rock opera" and are "written as an outcry against the materialistic nature of the woman." The result is something you will never put on a mixtape for your girlfriend. "...its a fascinating slice of ambitious, primitively lo-fi private press psych with an extreme lonesome/marginalized edge and some great fuzz and F/X. There are points where he gets into a whole schizophrenic exchange between two characters, one of whom talks in a weird fucked-up cartoon monster style, that almost makes you think of James Ferraros Lamborghini Crystal broadcasts but the rest of the album is just great basement/loner jams with a huge fucking chip on their shoulder, just the way we like em." -Kicktokill

Title: The Formal Female
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $46.00
"Reissue of this private pressing from the USA, 1972. LP in an edition of 450 numbered copies, with glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "All tracks were recorded by JW Jarquhar in 1972. The songs on The Formal Female were written as an outcry against the materialistic nature of the woman during that time period in 1972. Many will tell you it is still that way. JW had recently extricated himself from a 10 year marriage and the words from this experience fit the lyrics on the album still. During that time he lived by himself in a 3rd floor apartment in Philadelphia. It was a street with a lot of traffic. Car horns, busses, police sirens, fire engines, screams, and sometimes even gunshots filled the airwaves. For this reason he sealed up the windows and any other openings with sound-proofing foam. This was necessary because his music was recorded in there. JW was the instrumentalist; rhythm guitar, lead guitar, drums, vocals, and bass. However he could not play them all at once, so he purchased a four track simulsync Teac recorder... professional version. This allowed him to record on one track and then play it back and separately record on a second, third, and fourth track. The original tracks were recorded at 15 IPS. A final mix was then made in stereo with yet a fifth overdub, when needed. At that time other effects were limited. It is amazing electric fuzz album full of effects and its a masterpiece such as D.R. Hooker. Extra heavy psychedelic." -Shadoks.
