Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty
This album was pressed twice in the UK in 1982 — well, once, really, as the stampers are the same, but the cover art was changed to add a black bar to partially cover the face. This is obviously the second cover. Says Allmusic of this, Felt’s first release: “The songs are built around the dueling guitar interplay of Lawrence and the very skilled Maurice Deebank, whose silvery filigrees dart around Lawrence’s strums like flashes of baroque lightning. The two guitarists build intricate structures of sound that jangle like bells, cut like knives, and are buffered perfectly by Gary Ainge’s muffled tom-toms and Nick Gilbert’s simple basslines. The instrumentals that make up a chunk of the album are majestic and strange, with the guitars twinning together in epic cathedrals of sound, the drums thundering, and the bass wandering about below. … The record showed Felt standing pretty much alone as sonic innovators and as a band that could break one’s heart with an arpeggio, a sad melody, or a well-turned phrase.”
Like the other Felt listed today,this is in incredible shape in and out. No issue whatsoever. Again, best copy of this record I’ve ever found.
