Artery - The Second Coming LP
Here's a request by Lo-Fi Jr of the Grown Up All Wrong blog and John Liedown of the Punks On Postcards blog.
'The Second Coming' is Artery's 3rd album and a radical departure of the previous 'One Afternoon In A Hot Air Balloon' LP. Here the band sounds heavier and darker as before. One song, 'Diamonds In The Mine' sounds out of place on this album. It's a cover of a song by Leonard Cohen.
For a biography of Artery, check Simon Hinkler's site here. Simon Hinkler doesn't appear on this album. He was also a member of Pulp and The Mission. Guitarplayer Murray Fenton went on to play for the Batfish Boys.
I had to take a cover scan from discogs as my scanner refused to do a proper scan of the quite complex artwork of the sleeve. The sleeve normally looks darker.
