7” in linocut printed box with diorama sleeve handmade by the artist
Just a few months after fortuitously meeting Dean Brown in London’s Low Company, Horn of Plenty is delighted to be releasing this Little Skull 7”.
For a few years I had been 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.
While the music of Little Skull is rooted in the NZ underground, references also extend far beyond that. Think Bruce Langhorne’s ‘The Hired Hand’, AMMMusic, Egisto Macchi’s ‘Il Deserto’, Anner Bylsma, and Elodie.
