Little Skull - How We Used To Laugh / Haunted And Defiant 7"
"Just a few months after fortuitously meeting Dean Brown in London's Low Company I am delighted to be releasing this Little Skull 7". For a few years I was listening to Little Skull LP's unaware that Dean's own brand of NZ underground music was in fact being recorded a short distance from my London home. Furthermore, Dean's intricate homemade sleeves were crafted in London, shipped to Italy, then back to London where I was buying them. This release reduces the air miles while expanding the Little Skull story. Two tracks, two different moods. It's as if some unknown event takes place as you flip the record. The music of Little Skull evolved from the NZ underground but extends way beyond. Points of reference include Bruce Langhorne's The Hired Hand (2012), AMMMusic (1967), Egisto Macchi's Il Deserto (1974), Anner Bylsma, and Elodie." --Nick Hamilton (Horn of Plenty) Housed in a beautiful handmade diorama sleeve and box.
