Encased in a brown paper wrapping like a forgotten bit of smut from behind the beaded curtain, this unassuming disc is a time-capsule back to John Dwyer’s early SF days, janglingly fingerpicked wisps of melody and electronics baking in the all-too anemic sunshine of San Francisco’s elusive summer. Like a seashell to the ear, one can hear within it Baker Beach bike ride excursions, holding court and gently harassing passers-by on a Haight Street stoop, and midnight rambles with friends from out of town, daring the sun to come up. Somewhere chronologically between the folky whisper of Songs About Death And Dying and the recently reissued Cool Death Of Island Raiders, Graveblockers has been vexing to find for way too long and Castle Face has decided to give it 'the treatment'. May it awaken the gentle glow of possibility dappled with the dancing shadow of danger that it stirs around this castle.
Reissued extremely limited, long out-of-print EP from long-running garage rock band's early formative period in San Francisco.
+ Limited edition green coloured vinyl with insert.
