MORE INFO

"A wandering troubadour in search of treasured happenstance, Howe Gelb is an enigma." The Quietus //

Long out of print, Howe Gelb' s debut solo album ' Dreaded Brown Recluse' is re-imagined on for Record Store Day on brown vinyl. Back then, circa 1991 Howe' s main squeeze Giant Sand were nothing short of prolific, songs were oozing from every pore, their creative id was effervescing, overflowing. With Giant Sand' s colossal new album of ' 91 ' Ramp' imminent what to do with those further outpourings? An idea: Disguise the band as Howe Gelb solo and produce a song cycle that, on repeat, melds into an eclectic stew that' s easy to dip in and out of but still remains potent several hours in the oven. It' s music as soundtrack to your day, a playful, anarchic piece of situationism that unfolds like all the best dramatic prose. ' Dreaded Brown Recluse' includes a rethunk ' Warm Storm' with strings (it also appeared on ' Ramp' ). It also features songs about faxing (how quaint), blankets and the insect world, as it straddles territory lost somewhere between psychotic ramshackle punk and slimmed down acoustic reverie. Track List A1 Spirit Lie A2 Picture Shows A3 Loretta and the Insect World A4 Actually Faxing Sophia A5 Cello of the City A6 Still too Far B1 Warm Stone B2 Always Horses Coming B3 Vigdis B4 Vienna Two-Step Throw Away B5 Bible Black Book II B6 Brown Recluse B7 Blanket for Tina
