Boomkat product review for:

milk from cheltenham - Triptych Of Poisoners

**Wildly unpredictable, strangely exotic and magically eccentric art music recorded 1979-83 spanning jerky post-punk, drones, cut-up collage, noisy blues-rock skronk and improvised electro-acoustic dubbing. An important and outstanding release. Fans of Wire/Dome through The Residents and Ghédalia Tazartès should invest, we don't think you'll be disappointed.** "First in a series of alga marghen editions documenting the activities of the It's War Boys underground label, founded by Amos (of  The Homosexuals fame) in the late 1970s. The original LP was issued in an edition limited to 300 copies (most are on blue vinyl but there are some on pink vinyl and a few on black). The material was recorded from 1979 to 1981 but wasn't released until 1983 due to problems with the silkscreened sleeve. The band only put out this record, a real hidden gem. Lepke said that he wanted it to sound like a Beach Boys LP by using lots of different studios but it was mostly done on a cassette machine with a primitive 'surround' function. If The Homosexuals were a strange prospect and their music should fit into a similar spot as that of angry young men like Wire and Magazine who carried their penchants for art-school angst in the midst of proto-thug posturing, Milk from Cheltenham were even a more extreme band. Not only progressive with a certain artistic notion (a reference could be found in This Heat, Family Fodder and Chris Cutler's bands Henry Cow and the Art Bears) but also closer to more primitive sound experimentations of a cryptic and sinister Residential perspective. This release finally documents one of  the most important projects developed in the scene explored by The Homosexuals. First compact disc edition including a previously unreleased track titled The Geek. Graphics reproducing the original graphic material from the early 1980s. Digipak first edition limited to 500 copies."
