Fmt: LP Ltd 500 sclp 009 5033281011255
one of the very rarest underground folk rock private pressings with just one hand made copy known to exist, ntp perform a delicate and complex pop inflected downtempo folk with arch wit and charm, at times very reminiscent of the brilliant and largely forgotten Jimmy Campbell. the masterpiece 'Miranda' is lovelorn and infectious in its bittersweet melody, and all the songs are very subtle and understated, the lyrics often tackle deliberately mundane subjects in a poetic and clever way, much like the aforementioned Campbell. Acoustic Guitar, Piano and vocal...its folky pop and hard to categorise, with outstanding compositions.
manufactured in Sainted Albion on the legendary EMI presses where all the original Beatles LPs were pressed. we use as many environmental principles as possible, eg no shrinkwrap. textured gatefold sleeves.
