Edward Ka-Spel 'Permission to Leave the Temple' 10" PRE-ORDER



The idea of a release by the founder of The Legendary Pink Dots on Lumberton Trading Company had been mooted for a number of years. In fact, we were close to issuing a 7" around 11 or 12 years ago, but this fell through due to the usual problems facing small labels. The idea of still doing something with this prolific stalwart of music cut from those many folds where avant-garde abstraction locks horns with molten psychedelia, kosmische sounds, electronica and an approach to songwriting never afraid to go wherever the mood take, however, never left. Attached to all of this, as always, are Edward's words, where wry everyday observations can mutate or be twisted into new forms given a distinctive surrealist slant.

Collected on this limited 10" are five songs adding up to the length of a mini-album.

Edward may well be one of the most active artists to have first emanated from the early 1980s cassette network, but Lumberton Trading Company is more than happy to play a small part in this continually unfolding, and always interesting, story.

The masters are now in the hands of the plant, but please note that there are still significant delays with vinyl manufacturing, unfortunately. We hope we will have test pressings in June 2021 and that the records themselves will be ready to ship by the end of August. Perhaps we'll be lucky and this will happen sooner.

You can pre-order now to secure your copy anyway.
