Jazz Butcher, The - Sex and Travel

RECORD STORE DAY 2019

1000 only. First time on vinyl since 1985. Black Vinyl, Obi Strip. "Disaffected tales of cold war, melancholia and boozy heartbreak" Mojo // "A great album" Allmusic // Reissued for the first time on vinyl since 1985 for Record Store Day. One of the final two releases on Glass, 1985' s mini-LP ' Sex And Travel' offered a broadening perspective and ' retained a loose, playful approach to guitar pop' (Pitchfork). Competence and European travel beget a narrative akin to an impressionistic cold war spy movie, a "mess of styles" that became coherent. "A great album" mused All Music before comparing JB mainman Pat Fish to Ray Davies circa 1969. It' s an "accidental" concept album prone to fleeting melancholy.
