He made three tiny pressing private outsider LPs in the 80's and somebody told me he later committed suicide (i can't confirm for sure) but right at the start of this homemade LP he sings "They promise you a brighter day and slowly take away your will you live".
Music is basement loner with folk moves, trancy grooves, fuzz guitars and backwards stuff , very desolate and the vocals are way creepy and alienated. In fact this Lp is top shelf for loner loser basement dudes !
He played all the instruments/effects etc.. and recorded it at home.
Total downer haunted vibes here !
