The Supernormals - Sing Carlton B. Morgan 12"

Just got back yesterday from a trip to Normandy, France, visiting the D-Day landing beaches. Would like to say thank you for the comments left while I was away.
Up to the next post. Here's Carlton B. Morgan's 2nd release. Equally as good as the 'Devil's Music' mini album I posted a while ago. 'Rock Rock Rock' is co-written with Jon Langford. Released in 1986 on a small label called T.I.M. Records.
Carlton B. Morgan is finishing his book called 'Zen, Masturbation And Time Travel'. Sounds promising!
I once found a quote of Carlton where he stated that he doesn't understand why people say that Captain Beefheart's music is difficult listening. He wrote that 'No Jacket Required' by Phil Collins is a record difficult listening to!

Sing Carlton B. Morgan 12" (T.I.M. Records-12MT3-1986)
1. The Architect Was A Tall Man
2. Rock Rock Rock
3. Again The Devil's Music
4. Stargazm
5. Ape Thee Snake

Mr Morgan is, as usual, correct in his pronnouncement of 'difficult' music. 'Trout Mask Replica' is one of the best, most pure pop albums ever made while 'No Talent Required' is nothing but an old man moaning and whining.

Is anyone else aware that Carlton B Morgan helped to start punk?

I have been aware of this guy for a while now, having seen him live on various occasions supporting the Mekons/Three Johns etc and have often wondered if he had any recordings available.So far-I only have the fantastic 'I am HP Lovelace' off the extremely rare 'I was a teenage Gwent boy' (various artists-Frug records)I love the mix of influences and instruments in his work, yet his uncanny ability to create something so obviously his own.Great to see mention of the Supernormals again-time for a reunion maybe?

Welcome back--'twas nice to see you had a good vacation--I was suspecting a longer time away by your post.

Anyway, enjoying the posts as usual.

Thanks so much for this! I have been playing 'The Devil's Music' to death ever since you posted it.

Rumours abound amongst those "in the know" that he's been recording again and an album is nearing completion. Does anyone know more?

Haven't heard anything about this. But I'm not one of those 'in the know'.
