A Handjob From The Laughing Policeman


Steven Stapleton and Colin Potter on this one. Limited to 300 and packaged with initial pressing of Soundpooling. Glad to have a copy. The sounds herein are culled from all over Nurseland, with some specifics given in the writing below. Good stuffs! 320.
"The Bonus disc cleverly entitled A Handjob from the Laughing Policeman is a remix extravaganza. A wicked 1 track re-work of Free Death / African Mosquito / Two Golden Microphones / Shipwreck Radio and probably many more obscure ones buried within. Wandering close into Coil territory the first half got me moving around the room like an unhinged pixie - a crooked disco classic for sure… where as the second half was more, chilled... a dub workout with some lovely grating freight train metal and spacey washes. The latter end is a slight return to the first disc with ‘Indernacht…’ on infinite loop, a whispering apparition in wharfside fog, accompanied by short wave flutterings. Stapleton’s voice can be heard through the murk repeating the syrupy words... it’s coming out of the void echoing itself doubling itself over and over ... all to a mellow ring modulation with the words – ‘Well there you are’ bringing the disc into a silent conclusion."
