Dead Wood / Phantom Heron Seas
Have just spent a pleasant while listening to the latest release from Dorset based label Dirty Demos: "Sunshine Daily Commercial" by Dead Wood and Phantom Heron Seas. "Sunshine Daily Commercial" is a five (or so) minute track of oscillation and drone, it is (on this sunny day) a great listen. The record is a lathe-cut ocean blue flexi disc that started life out as a Safeway picnic plate. It is the first record that once was a plate I have, I do have a few that would be better off as plates, but this is my first plate/record...and it plays, for a lathe-cut and flexi the sound is very good. There's a split CDr on Dead Pilot Records that I will now have to hunt down as this record tells me something very listenable is happening between Dead Wood and Phantom Heron Seas. *Do not get Dead Wood mixed up with Deadwood. Deadwood are an awful band who release on Cold Spring Records* The record is limited to 26 copies only and costs £5.50 in the UK - I have checked the website www.dirtydemos.co.uk and it is still listed, so there is no excuse.
