Item description

Dali's Car - The Waking Hour 1984 LP, Paradox Records. This one-off collaboration between Peter Murphy (ex-Bauhaus), Mick Karn (ex-Japan) and Paul Vincent Lawford (rhythm/percussion guy from who knows where) is a very interesting oddity. Murphy and Karn recorded the album by sending tapes back and forth and hardly spent any time together in the recording studio at all. What they accomplished in this project is truly amazing- it really sounds like a band, and one of the most unusual and eclectic sort; no guitar, just woodwinds, keyboards, bass, percussion and voice. In fact, the percussion/drums are sparse but it has no less impact. This is eclectic 'Art Rock' at it's finest. Cryptic lyrics, odd but engaging song arrangements and off-kilter rhythms. Karn had been experimenting with this type of music on his first solo release after leaving Japan called "Titles", but here it is fleshed out and sounding like a unified entity. The music seems to be a perfect fit for Murphy's dark and dramaic vocal delivery. If they had stayed together, surely they would have an art rock supergroup. As is, it is a curious musical memento of what can happen when a couple of eccentric rock music geniuses pool their talent. Ad to this the full gatefold cover art of one of Maxfield Parrish's most famous paintings ("Daybreak" somewhat referential to the album's title) and you have 'Art Rock' in its truest sense. Also, since both Murphy and Karn were contacted with different labels, a whole new label (Paradox) was created just for this release. (Beggars Banquet has since taken over full pressing on its own.) CDs of this album can be difficult to come by, but the original U.K. LP on the Paradox label is really quite scarce. The cover has minimal wear; a slight scratch on the column on the front side, and a very tiny bit of corner wear. I'd call it EXCELLENT. Vinyl is NEAR MINT. SIDE 1: Dali's Car 2. His Box 3.
