Spike - Orange Cloud Nine lp (Golf Channel)

$23.99

""Full of that x-factor that so many strive for and are eluded by - personality and authenticity" - Ransom Note

Long awaited retrospective "Best Of" the enigmatic Dutch musician Spike, whose four privately pressed LPs from the 80s are the stuff of legend. Officially certified by the Dutch government as a "fool", and a conscientious objector to nearly everything, Spike Wolters refused to work, and after a few court cases, won the right to be able to claim unemployment benefit for life. Fiercely political, he dropped out of society and during the 80s and produced a string of LPs which he pressed and sold himself. These sank without trace but were happened upon a few years ago by an ardent digger.

Orange Cloud Nine presents 16 amazing tracks from the 4 LPs - shimmering, lo-fi oddball stoner pop played with a deft musicality. Clean concise pop songs, filtered through a heavy haze of marijuana, produced on cheap equipment, and almost entirely in isolation that have finally come of age. It's meditative music that will uplift and mesmerize the listener. Sequenced to perfection, it has been lovingly remastered so well from the original tapes that it sounds better than the originals - and that's according to Spike himself."
