Hail - Gypsy Cat & Gypsy Bird LP
Hail from Denver, Colorado are Bob Drake and Susanne Lewis. Both were members of art rock band Thinking Plague.
Hail is actually the second collaboration of Bob and Susanne. The first one was as Corpses As Bedmates who released the 'Venus Handcuffs' LP on Dead Man's Curve. Hail follows the same path as Corpses As Bedmates. The song 'I'll Lead You' is re-recorded for this album. The original song appeared on the 'Music From The Deadzone 2' comp. album.
A second album 'Turn Of The Screw' was released in 1990 on ReR Megacorp, a sublabel of Recommended Records. And a new album was made last year. Check Bob Drake's website for more info. Strange that this album isn't mentioned and/or re-released.
Susanne Lewis also worked with experimentalists Biota and 5uu's.
Bob Drake lives In Southern France these days and has his own studio.
