Download: CAMBERWELL NOW "Green Lantern"

The music by post-This Heat band Camberwell Now is kicking my ass today (along with forthcoming & new-ish albums from Antony and the Johnsons, Six Organs, Boom Bip, Caribou, Mu, Cass McCombs and Psapp -- and I kind of love the Superwolf album, too.) I think CN were around from '82-'84; the lineup was: Charles Hayward - voice, drums, kazoo, etc.; Trefor Goronwy - bass guitar, ukulele, voice, etc.; Stephen Rickard - studio and field recordings, tapework. Everything they did is available on this one compilation CD on RecRec (this here's taken from vinyl.) As AMG points out, CN is the most song-oriented project Hayward's done and as such the only thing that really ranks up there with his work in the by-now pretty renown This Heat. Though did you ever check Jim O'Rourke's This Heat tribute band Brise Glace? That shit was deep--best band that guy was ever in, for reals.
