Parade Room


2nd These Wonderful Evils LP "Parade Room" now out. Vinyl only pressing of 504 numbered...

Volcanic Tongue says...
"
Second private press LP from Zak Boerger’s These Wonderful Evils, whose first out-of-nowhere album was a beautiful reconciliation of modern basements modes, classic psych/rock and acoustic mesmerism. Parade Room features one side of shorter songs and instrumentals that combine drugged vocals with Six Organs-style acoustic ragas, Spacemen 3-esque repeat-fuzz jams and classic postcard from the edge atmospherics and a flip based around one magnificent side-long suite that crunches distorto-chords with lucid, airy acoustic sequences that make it sound like a less cassette-specific rethink of the pastoral violence of some of the best singer/songwriter sides issued by Xpressway. Hand-numbered edition of 504 copies. Dedicated to John Martyn and Ron Asheton. Recommended."

And from Boa Melody Bar...
"Stunning follow-up to These Wonderful Evil's amazing debut "Regine Flory". Solo project of Zak Boerger, the sound recalls Alastair Galbraith / Peter Jefferies with extended ragged ballads, a psychedelic feel and oodles of fuzz. Add to that some Flying Saucer Attack moments with folky acoustic guitar awash with swirls of feedback. Add to that a real outsider / loner feel and you have another great album."
